Protecting Kane's servants!
- Reckoner

The Reckoner is a Nod armoured personnel carrier in Kane's Wrath.


Unlike its GDI counterpart, the Guardian APC, the Reckoner is unarmed and does not have firing ports. However, it has a larger crew capacity, being able to carry two squads of infantry. The Reckoner can be deployed into a stationary bunker to provide extra protection and will do so automatically if it sustains too much damage. In this state, not only can the infantry inside fire out, but it also gains enough room for three squads of infantry.

Game Unit[]

The Reckoner is Nod's only ground APC unit, and can be roughly equated to GDI's Guardian APC. However, there are a few differences worth noting - unlike its GDI version, it is unarmed and its passengers cannot fire, but also holds two infantry slots and the troops inside are immune to garrison-clearing weapons. A most notable difference, however, is that the vehicle will turn into a bunker when it is "killed", regain a portion of its hit points, and add an additional infantry carrying slot to its total capacity. It will also receive a greater resistance to damage. It is in this immobile state that infantry can fire out from it, but also retain their immunity to garrison-clearing weapons as long as they remain inside it. Should the Reckoner bunker be destroyed, however, the infantry inside will die (just like those inside a destroyed Guardian APC).

The Reckoner can also be prematurely ordered to turn into a bunker, which it will do so immediately and at its current location. Doing this achieves the same effect, and the Reckoner will receive the same benefits as previously mentioned above. However, in both cases, the conversion is final and the Reckoner cannot be repacked.

Like the Foxholes constructed by GDI's rifleman squads, even when in their bunker form they cannot be repaired manually and can only regain hit points by being repaired by ground-based repair drones - those from War Factories, Battle Bases, MRTs, or the Reconstruction Drones support power will suffice.

The Marked of Kane especially heavily utilized this unit, as it afforded their already intimidating infantry even further protection from damage while still allowing them to incinerate their enemies.

Reckoners, along with the Scorpion Tank, could be upgraded with Dozer Blades. These increased the Reckoner's armor, made them able to traverse mines without sustaining damage, and gave them the ability to crush heavy infantry (such as Zone Troopers) - making it easier for the Reckoner to get into position and unleash the power of the infantry within.

Unlike how it may appear visually, once the Reckoner begins the transformation into a bunker the infantry within can fire out of it, regardless of how far the Reckoner is into the deployment animation

The Reckoner cannot be airlifted by a Carryall.
