The damage is too extensive!
Ghost Stalker has been marked for cleanup. Reason(s):
Check the claim for multiple Ghost Stalkers existing in Firestorm, it is likely just Westwood's tendency to reuse units
Please refer to the talk page for further discussion.

There could be trouble!

Ghost Stalker was a mutant and a noted commando of the Forgotten during the Second Tiberium War and the Firestorm Conflict. Other than being mutated by Tiberium at some point and his use of explosives, little is known about him despite his frequent appearances in the campaigns.


Second Tiberium War[]

The Ghost Stalker was deployed several times during the Second Tiberium War and its aftermath. He was sent along with Umagon and a hijacker to rescue Tratos from imprisonment in a Nod prison camp / hospital facility.

He was also present during a GDI attempt to destroy power plants that were powering a chemical missile facility, causing some of the defences to go offline. Finally, Ghost Stalker was again instrumental in destroying a Banshee prototype facility - first scouting it out, and then assisting with its complete destruction.

His final known appearance in the Second Tiberium War was finding out the location of Kane's Pyramid in Cairo, and informing Michael McNeil that Umagon was held captive in its Temple of Nod.

Firestorm Conflict[]

The Ghost Stalker was sent in to retrieve the second piece of the Tacitus from the mutant-intolerant Cultists. He killed their leader, Mortimer, and many cult members. In that endeavor, he was supported by a Juggernaut, archaeologist Valdez, and a medic. Ghost Stalker had a degree of importance for that mission, as CABAL had calculated a 10% chance of success if Ghost Stalker were to be killed.

Game unit[]

Part of Forgotten, Ghostalker carries a small rail gun and is armed with C4 charges. His railgun has the ability to shoot through multiple targets at once, eliminating rows of enemies in a single hit. Ghostalker's C4 ability can be used to destroy any enemy structure when a C4 icon appears. Left-clicking will send Ghostalker to the building and once he touches the building, it will flash for a few seconds then explode. Like all mutant units, Ghostalker can heal in Tiberium.

The main weapon of the Ghost Stalker is a railgun, which is similar to the railguns used by the Mammoth Mk. II. It is capable of killing any non-cyborg infantry and light vehicles, even Tiberian floaters, in a single shot, while it can also destroy a veinhole monster in two shots.

Against structures, the Ghost Stalker uses C4 explosives that tear apart a building nearly instantaneously. However, the fact that he actually has to get to the building itself limits his effectiveness in this regard.

His lack of health when compared to cyborgs and the cyborg commando means that a medic is often necessary. In the absence of medical personnel, the Ghost Stalker can slowly regenerate his health by simply wading through a field of Tiberium crystals, as his mutant physiology absorbs the radiation the crystals emit, triggering cellular regeneration that all mutants experience when in contact with Tiberium.

He also has some fire resistance as he can take a direct hit from the flames of a Devil's Tongue without bursting into flames.
