I have to say, the quality of training GDI soldiers get before fieldwork is subpar.

GDI soldiers are basic assault infantry in Renegade.


In the latter stages of the war, as GDI supply lines are unable to meet the demands of the conflict, in order to not lose the war, GDI was forced to reduce training times (from three months basic to eight weeks to four weeks) and begin issuing cheaper, more cost-efficient equipment (instead of camouflaged battle dress uniforms and PASGT body armour, soldiers receive steel helmets, flak vests and plain colour clothes)[1].


The basic GDI soldier in single- and multiplayer, he's unsurprisingly fragile and not much of a threat, unless one has mastered the Raptor rifle.



  1. Command & Conquer: Renegade, IDS_M00GGDI_GCON0030A3GSEN (By the time I was done with basic training, I had a full three months. Today, these soldiers learn the hard way.), IDS_M00GGDI_GCON0029R3GORS (I remember a time when they had eight full weeks of training before any field work), IDS_M00GGDI_GCON0030A1GSMG (Now they get a couple days of underwear folding, and they ship 'em out to die.), IDS_M00GGDI_GCON0030A2GSRS (Yes, the four week training course is just not enough.)
