Game unit[]

Mutants are a very strong anti-vehicle infantry squad. When it comes to fighting, their damage output and health is comparable with that of Cyborgs, but at half of their cost. Mutants will be able to challenge any War Factory.

Although weak to aircraft and infantry, the health of Mutants allows them to survive the weaker anti-infantry fire for considerable time, making Riflemen and Talons ineffective. Heavier anti-infantry, like Razorback, can pose the problems.

Mutants pair up well with Chem buggy for anti-infantry support. The raider ability on the buggy allows it to attack the infantry while moving through the defensive wall of the Mutants. The Tiberium cloud it leaves behind creates a zone of denial for any advancing infantry. This pairing is most efficient on the maps with a single defending point, since the Mutants can't move very fast.

To protect from air attacks, pair them up with Laser squad, Attack bikes, phantoms or Banshees.[2]

Immunity to Tiberium fields allows them to harass opponents harvester and defend their own without taking damage, but will still take damage from Tiberium spray and cloud.

Ability to detect stealthed units allows the Marauders to both decloak Stealth tank and make a significant dent to its health.

Mutant Marauders - Intel Report


Behind the scenes[]

Like the Grenadiers, the Marauders are intended to give players more options with higher tier anti-vehicle infantry
- KyleF


  • The mutant marauders seem to be based on the concept art for the Mutant marauders in Tiberium Wars, in which they carry an unknown energy weapon instead of the gatling gun they use in the actual game.
  • Has gravely voice. Male. Seems to be very concerned with aesthetics.
  • When idle, roars across the battlefield.
