Terrorists are dangerous, single-use glass cannons that produce a devastating blast. They can enter unoccupied civilian vehicles for extra mobility and damage, and the same applies to Combat Cycles.

Though weak alone, Terrorists are often used in groups. Normally slow, they move a fair bit faster when on the offense, and can take the opponent by surprise when given the chance to inflict damage far exceeding their own value. One is enough to destroy most vehicles, and two can nuke an Overlord tank. If several get past, they can deal heavy damage to structures as well. This makes them highly ideal for rush attacks, especially if they enter a vehicle. Flames, explosions (from rockets and various other projectiles) will result in an immediate detonation, and the same also applies if a vehicle tries to run them over.

Terrorists, however, are obviously far from foolproof. Although they can harm aircraft on the ground, those that are airborne can easily eliminate them without fear of retaliation. Their range is also incredibly low, allowing them to be decimated from afar with strategically positioned artillery units. Additionally, they are vulnerable to many other units/structures effective against infantry, such as Tunnel Network/Toxin Network, Gattling Cannon, Pathfinder and Gattling Tanks.
