Zone troopers are an epic GDI tech infantry squad unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background

Zone Troopers are elite GDI infantry clad in XO-95 power armor. This armor enables Zone Troopers to accurately wield heavy rail guns and will automatically deliver first aid to them over time.

Abilities

  • Can target infantry Strong against vehicles Strong against aircraft
  • Restores health every second after being out of combat.
  • Reveals adjacent stealthed units.
  • Immune to Tiberium fields.

Game unit

Zone troopers is a heavy hitting infantry squad that are effective against both aircraft and vehicles, and have the highest damage per second stats in the whole GDI arsenal, at least when the squad has both members.

The only weakness being mid to high tier infantry, like Flame troopers and Confessors. They can also be countered by a swarm of Cyberwheels or Militants, but in the late game the the population cap is at premium and fielding two or three units against one might be impractical.

The self-healing ability means that one Zone troopers should only be attacked if at least one member of the squad will get taken down.

To help counter infantry units, ZTs can be paired up with Sniper team or Wolverine.

Nod counterpart to ZT is Cyborg. The ZT is one of the few infantry units that are immune to Tiberium poisoning and they make fine harvester hunters.
