can someone check if the tripod can run over vehicles? while you're at it, try with avatar too.

I know the Tripod can, so the Avatar probably can. Makron1n 12:44, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

has anyone noticed the similarities with the tripod to that war of the worlds movie (shut up, i thought it was great) that came out a couple years ago that had tom cruise in it? they have weird, alien-looking tripods and the commandos can take them out by putting explosives on them and in the movie tom cruise takes one down with a grenade. i guess the devs liked the movie.

The War of the Worlds was written by H G Wells in the late 19th century and that movie is one of many adaptations. The tripods date back to the original novel, so the devs might not necessarily be fans of that movie... Meh, just nitpicking. I think the explosives thing is a coincidence more related to game balance, since the bipedal mechs can also be taken down. Makron1n 14:41, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

yes, i read the book as an 8 year old way back in 1995 or 1994 and it scared the hell out of me, it's just the design is very reminiscent of those in the movie. that reminds me, there's a game coming out that's an rts where you have the armies of earth battling it out against aliens and giant tripods...forgot the name though.

It's Universe at War, Earth Assult by Petroglyph, very similar to War of the Worlds RTS, it seems.

awesome, i loved empire at war (petrogylph's only game so far) so i'll cross my fingers that this one is good too. Capt Jim 00:40, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Gentlemen! I just saw the tripods newest ability. When Tripods get close to enemy tanks they fire an EMP weapon up close.

No they don't. Makron1n 19:42, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

But I saw it really. Play CNC 3 Tiberium Wars, build an Annihilator Tripod and get it close to a Mammoth Tank and then once standing next to it order it to attack.

Tripods do indeed have an EMP weapon, it can be seen if you have one of the patches, but in the unpatched version it is invisible but there. (try force firing near an enemy structure)-The Stratigest


Anyone else prefer the old image? I know it wasn't a cameo but it was higher-res and cleaner. Makron1n 17:46, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't know what the old image was, but this one is definitely of low quality. AthCom 14:24, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
