- Surveyor

The Surveyor is a rapid deployment vehicle used by GDI to during the Third Tiberium War.


Essentially, it is a large deployable truck, which establishes a small outpost once the order was given. The outposts grant limited ground control, enough to erect structures with the aid of the Construction Yard or a Crane.

Superficially, it is nearly identical to the MCV used by GDI during the First Tiberium War, albeit smaller.


Call for transport
Deploy This ability orders the Surveyor to unpack into an Outpost. It can only be issued on flat terrain and once given, cannot be revoked. Surveyor deployment is permanent (Ctrl+S).
Call for transport
Call for transport If an Airfield is deployed, Surveyor can call in a V-35 Ox Transport for pickup for a small fee of $200. This ability has a 2 minute cooldown (Ctrl+A).

Game unit

Surveyors lack weapons, speed and armor. Therefor, it's easy prey for any enemies lurking nearby and can't be relocated once it's deployed. However, following deployment it gains the ability to detect stealthed units, provides a small area of construction space and can be repaired like any other building.
