- Disruptor when attacking

The Disruptor is a rare GDI tech vehicle in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background

The GDI Disruptor is an experimental siege weapon which uses sonic energy to batter down enemy structures and devastate enemy infantry. Although largely phased out by the Third Tiberium War, the Disruptor remains a potent anti-structure unit.

Abilities

  • Strong against infantry Can target vehicles Cannot target aircraft Strong against structures
  • Can attack up to 2 tiles away.
  • Damages any enemy in the beam.
  • Fires while moving.

Game unit

Disruptor is a medium armored tank that can remove the base with at most 5 shots (in 25 seconds). The long range beam can dispatch of infantry even before they reach the tank, and it assist supporting units with significant chip damage to other vehicles. When this tank is heading for the base, it can't be ignored.

Sending light infantry to counter them will end in a disaster. If sent alone, Disruptor will kill them before they close the distance. Heavier infantry will die on the second beam.

Disruptors are vulnerable to air attacks. Their slow movement speed means that there is enough time to prepare an armored response, that can block and destroy the Disruptor, provided that they are sighted in time.

Since Disruptor is a specialty unit, it would be well paired with supporting units like Zone troopers, which can effectively protect the Disruptor from both armor and aircraft. However, this combination of units is expensive and requires stalling the game as long as possible before these units can be deployed.
