Scanner pack was an upgrade used by the Global Defense Initiative during the Third Tiberium War.

Background

This upgrade augmented the powered armour of zone troopers with specialized scanners, which allowed them to see farther and detect stealthed foes[1]. The Zone raiders adapted this technology for Red Zone use, allowing them to locate stealthy enemy combatants hiding in the devastation[2].

Game effect

Although the brief description reads "detects stealth in a small radius," the detection range is comparable to—if not greater than that found on defensive structures such as watchtowers, Guardian cannons or AA batteries. Combined with zone troopers' resistance to tank weapons, as well as their excellent anti-armour capabilities, the ability to detect stealth just makes them even more dangerous against enemy vehicles of every type.

Changelog

    • range bonus increased from 10% to 20%
    • cost reduced from $1000 to $500
    • research time reduced to 15 sec
