GAMES: Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath – Traveler-59 Units

kaneswrath

 

Traveler-59 is an unusual Scrin cult which makes use of stronger mind control and speed acceleration for infantry and aircraft. Their mind control capabilities are no longer restricted to a commando unit, and the latter has been mutated to even control buildings. Their vehicle arsenal is considerably trimmed down, however.

 

 

Infantry

tw_buzzersBuzzers
Cost:
$200 | Squad size: 1 swarm | Prerequisites: none
The terrifying Buzzers are like a cloud of flying razors that can cut cleaning through flesh and light armour. They seem to guided by a limited sentience. They can clear out garrisoned buildings. While they can garrison them themselves afterwards for territory control, they can not attack from there.

Abilities:

tw_buzzercombine

Combine with Vehicle
Cost:
free | Cooldown: instant | Prerequisites: none

Attaches this Buzzer swarm to any Scrin ground vehicle (except Explorers, Harvesters, Mechapedes, and Eradicator Hexapods). They then move and attack alongside the vehicle until they are manually detached or the vehicle is destroyed.

 

tw_disintegratorsDisintergrators
Cost:
$300 | Squad size: 5 | Prerequisites: none
These metallic walking creatures decimate vehicles with a powerful cutting beam effective against armour. When crushed, they explode, damaging enemies in the vicinity.

This alien, which is stealthed when stationary, is capable of capturing enemy structures and take over downed large mechs including the Juggernaut, the Avatar, the Annihilator Tripod and their variants.

Critical to the financial success of all sides, the Harvester is the only unit capable of collecting Tiberium for refinement.

The Mechapede is a multi-segmented mechanical monstrosity that can spawn up to 8 new segments from is own body, each equipped with its own form of destructive weaponry. They come by default with a weapon similar to that of Disintegrators. They can also detect stealthed units in a small radius. Destroying a Mechapede’s head segment destroys the rest of the unit.
Note: Due to erroneous coding, the Mechapede’s segments often shuffle when changing directions.

Abilities:

$3000 | Prerequisites: Tech Assembler
This devastating walking behemoth is armed with three beam weapons mounted on independently articulated tentacles and legs so powerful that they can crush smaller vehicles underfoot. Their weapons can trigger EMP blasts on vehicles and structures if at close range (only one object can be affected at a time).

kw_eradicatorhexapodEradicator Hexapod
Cost:
$5000 | Prerequisites: Warp Chasm, Tech Assembler
Scrin epic unit – a massive, spider-like biomechanism which gains credits by processing 15% of the purchase price of destroyed enemy units from their hulks. It fires barrages of plasma discs. It also has three garrisonable hard-points, which turns garrisoned infantry permanently into upgrades or weapons.

tw_stormriderStormrider
Cost:
$1500 | Prerequisites: none
Stormriders are fast attack aircraft armed with plasma gun that excel against vehicles and aircraft.

Ion storms increase Scrin aircraft’s attack damage by 25%, reduces incoming damage by 25%, repairs them by 5% of maximum hit points per second and fires lightning bolts which damage enemy units in a short radius, dealing splash damage (hostile Scrin units take only 20% of this damage). This ability is canceled if the Planetary Assault Carrier moves.

Upgrades:

kw_travelerengines

Traveler Engines
Cost:
$1500 | Researched at: Tech Assembler

Increases the movement speed of Devastator Warships and Planetary Assault Carriers by 30%.

 

tw_invaderfighterInvader Fighter

Invader Fighters are housed within Planetary Assault Carriers in large numbers. They are swift and difficult to target. They regenerate constantly and if they are destroyed, they will be replaced free of charge. Like all other Scrin aircraft, they are more effective in ion storms.

 

 

tw_droneshipDrone Ship
Cost:
$3500 | Prerequisites: none
These giant floating towers land and deploy into a Drone Platform in order to establish a Scrin base. They are similar in function to MCVs, but unlike them, they are considered aircraft and are built from the appropriate structure. While they are well-armoured, they is slow and unarmed, therefore they must be protected at all costs.

Abilities:

tw_deploy

Unpack into Drone Platform
Cost:
free | Cooldown: n/a | Prerequisites: none

Orders the Drone Ship to unpack into a Drone Platform in its current location. This order is reversible.

 

tw_mothershipMothership

$5000 (support power) | Prerequisites: Signal Transmitter
The slow-moving Scrin Mothership is a superweapon capable of releasing a jolt of energy that disintegrates its target and causes a chain reaction that can level entire cities.
Note 1: Only one Mothership can be called at a time per player.
Note 2: Due to an error in coding transferred from an earlier version of Tiberium Wars, the Mothership can sometimes refuse to fire.
