Laser capacitors was a Nod upgrade in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and its expansion, Kane's Wrath.


The Brotherhood's Obelisk of Light inspired scientists to hone its laser technology down to a more-portable form factor.[1] The result was the Spitfire laser, which can be mounted on a number of Nod vehicles.

Game effect

Once the upgrade is researched, all Raider buggies, Scorpion tanks, and Venom patrol craft replace their respective weapons with a laser, which deal increased damage. Heroic units with the laser upgrade fire pale-blue lasers.

The Scorpion tank is the only unit visually affected by this upgrade: its top-mounted cannon is replaced with a laser cannon mounted on the back, similar to a scorpion's stinger. Other units are visually unchanged.

In Kane's Wrath, the Laser turret is also affected by the upgrade, dealing increased damage after the upgrade is researched.
