New Unit Showcase: Fanatics

Inspire your allies with the Fanatics, coming soon to Command & Conquer: Rivals. Read on for tips, tricks and counters to master this new unit.


Buff allied units upon death

The Nod Fanatics are handpicked squads of the most zealous Nod foot-soldiers. They are charged with carrying Nod’s colors into battle, dreaming of inspiring their comrades by sacrificing themselves in battle.


  • Faction: Nod
  • Building: Hand of Nod
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Tiberium Cost: 30
  • Unlocks at Player Level 39

Deployment Tips:

Fanatics are strong against infantry and vehicles, making them a great unit to run when there’s no air units on the field. Their true strength though comes when they die. Each time a Fanatics squad member dies, it grants nearby allied units increased attack and movement speeds. Position allies near Fanatics, as a dead Fanatic has much to give to the Brotherhood.


  • Venom, Talon

The hard counter to Fanatics is anti-infantry air units. Send in Venoms or Talons, knowing that the Fanatics are unable to defend themselves. Remember to isolate the Fanatics from their allies before killing them, if possible. This prevents their buffs from taking effect, making their death meaningless.

From the Devs:

“The buff when a squad member dies should give players new interesting ways to play and hopefully help create new strategies.” - KyleF
