The Shatterer is a rare GDI vehicle unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.


The GDI Shatterer is an infantry suppression weapon that combines GDI hover tech and sonic tech. The Shatterer's concentrated sonic-seismic hybrid wave damages and stuns enemy infantry units.


  • Strong against infantry Can target vehicles Cannot target aircraft Strong against structures
  • Stuns enemy Infantry with each attack.

Game unit[]

Shatterer is a middle-game anti-infantry vehicle. It's ability to momentarily stun incoming infantry reduces their effective movement speed by ¼, increasing the Shatterer's defenders advantage. The stun reduces the infantry attack speed by 10%. The fast attack speed allows Shatterer to quickly deal with light infantry.

Like all sonic units in the GDI arsenal, Shatterer is effective against structures. It is not a unit of choice for direct base attack, but will deal more than a fair share of damage to Minigun turret and the Obelisk of Light.

Being a lightly armnored specialist unit, it is vulnerable to any anti-vehicle armor and aircraft. If the infantry is the only available counter to the Shatterer, sending in several squads at the same time can overwhelm it. This approach is not effective if the Shatterer is boosted by M.S.V. or Jackson.

Shatterer works well with other specialist units, like Slingshot and M.L.R.S. and is a good choice when setting up a fortress.
