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

Ghost Stalker was a mutant and a noted commando of the Forgotten during the Second Tiberium War and the Firestorm Crisis. 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.

Game unit

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.

Deployments

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 Crisis

Creation of a new 'caste'

During the brief interim between the Second Tiberium War and the Firestorm Crisis, the Forgotten acquired a number of additional railguns and could equip more of their kin with them.

When the Firestorm Crisis took place, the new Ghost Stalkers served with distinction. They were instrumental in the defense of the main mutant base, but despite their efforts, the base was still overwhelmed as the massive opposition they faced alone was too much to contend with.

Deployment of the original Ghost Stalker

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.

Ghost Stalker was not mentioned after the events of the Firestorm Crisis. After the conflict, GDI trained commandos of their own instead of employing Forgotten agents.
