The Riflemen squad is a common GDI infantry unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals. It is a GDI equivalent to Nod's Militant


The riflemen squad is GDI's standard infantry formation. Equipped with GD-2 automatic rifles and composite body armor, GDI riflemen are an inexpensive and effective way of destroying enemy infantry units.

Game Unit

The riflemen squad is one of the best scout units due to it's increased vision range and only costs 10 TIberium to train. Commander can safely see what's going on on the battlefield without getting seen by opponent.

It is good for eliminating weak infantry unit such as Missile Squad/Laser Squad or another Riflemen Squad. However, it can be easily killed with any anti-infantry units.



  • Cheap to train, only costs 10 Tiberium
  • Good early-game unit
  • It has the sight range of 3, making it the best scout unit
  • Due to number of riflemen per squad, Any anti-vehicle units with very high firepower but slow rate of fire will take more time to kill the whole squad as each shot only kills one riflemen, such as Titan


  • Fragile, can only defeat few types of infantry unit
  • Defenseless against aircraft
  • Poor against vehicles
  • Obsolete in the end-game
