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

Gameplay

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 playfield (SP and MP alike), it's usefulness diminishes.

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
  • Presumably similar to M16, the Raptor uses a 5mm bullet cartridge, but if it's 5.56 or another choice is unknow.
