The Brotherhood of Nod must be vigilant in its efforts to encroach on GDI. To this end, it developed the Venom Patrol Craft to effectively keep watch over vast reaches of land. Venoms were equipped with rapid-firing machine guns that were lethal against enemy infantry and quite effective against aircraft and light vehicles as well. These versatile craft could be further enhanced with laser weapons and radar disruption technology.
Nearby Beam Cannons can bounce their beams off of Venoms to hit distant targets, including enemy aircraft. The Venoms must be stationary and the Beam Cannons must be within range of a Venom of which to reflect their beams off.
This upgrade replaces the minigun with a fast-firing laser that fires bursts that do 228 (Gun) damage per burst. Each laser burst takes 2.4 seconds to fire, with 0.5 seconds between each burst (Ctrl+S).
Purchasable at any Tech Lab for a cost of $2500 and takes 1:15 to research.
