GAMES: Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight – Nod Defense Class

cnc4tt

If you love your base building, or want to sit back and turtle, then this is the class for you! Defense Class players excel in holding ground around TCN nodes by placing defensive structures, shield generators, and bunkers for their infantry. They can establish tunnel networks around the map to hop quickly from location to location, and are the only players who have access to the legendary Ion Cannon and Temple of Nod Super-weapons! Don’t be fooled by the name though – just because it’s called Defense doesn’t mean this class can’t play aggressively! Although Defense is slower and more heavily armoured, you can push to the front lines with an Offense Class player, setting up turrets along the way or even force enemies out of TCN nodes by setting up long-range artillery!

 

NodDefenseCrawlerMobileDefensive Crawler
Cost:
free | Tier: 1
The Brotherhood has always been feared for its powerful defenses, and the Nod Defense Crawler was designed to reinforce that fear. The Crawler is capable of constructing a variety of defensive structures including the infamous Obelisk of Light, and can upgrade itself with additional weaponry and specialized shield generators. For mobile defense, Nod almost exclusively employs the cybernetic armies of Kane with more experienced Nod commanders calling upon the services of the elite Black Hand and High Confessors. Additionally, the most loyal commanders are granted access to Nod’s artillery vehicles and those who have demonstrated their worthiness may construct the sacred Temple of Nod to cleanse their enemies.
