The Cobretti AR-70 Raptor automatic rifle[1] is the basic assault rifle of GDI and Nod in Renegade.


The Raptor is the basic automatic rifle used by Nod and GDI infantry in Renegade. It's quite useful against basic troops, but as more advanced units enter the battlefield (SP and MP alike), its usefulness diminishes, and in later missions, ammo becomes next-to-impossible to find for it.

Regardless, it is still a potent weapon when it comes to scoring headshots with it. However, it is only marginally effective against light vehicles and completely worthless against heavy armor.


  • The name Cobretti (presumably that of the company that manufactures the Raptor) is likely an homage the 1986 film Cobra, in which Sylvester Stallone plays a character called Marion "Cobra" Cobretti.
  • The automatic rifle in Renegade was originally going to be an M16, according to pre-release screenshots. It was replaced by the Raptor at some point in development.
  • The Raptor's design heavily resembles the M41A Pulse Rifle from the Alien franchise, even in function with the remarkable 100-round magazine capacity.
  • Presumably similar to M16, the Raptor uses a 5.56 mm bullet cartridge, but if it actually is 5.56 mm or another size is unknown.
