GAMES: Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars – Nod Units

cnc3

 

The Brotherhood of Nod relies on strength in numbers and the use of sneak attacks. Their stealth technology allows for fast hit-and-run attacks and deceiving their enemies. Their units require a lot of micromanagement, as their armour and firepower is mostly weaker than that of other factions. Some of their units make up for their lack of raw firepower with various types of synergy.
