An expansion/overhaul mod of epic proportions, with entirely rebalanced gameplay, expanded factions, new gametypes, graphical overhauls, and five new factions; stealth-based Confederate Revolutionaries, tower defense-inspired Atomic Kingdom of China, economy-focused Mediterranean Syndicate, DotA-esque Order of the Talon and spammy Electrical Protectorate.

RSS Feed Unit Spotlights - ARVN Predator and VC Chameleon ZSU

Video and information regarding two the units in the soon-to-be-released Apocalypse Minimod.

Posted by open_sketchbook on Feb 15th, 2012

ARVN Predator

The ARVN Predator is the Ranger's light attack vehicle. It's excellent for hunting down infantry, because the Vietcong have no infantry that hard-counter it, and both it's weapons do gun damage. It's especially good at hunting down snipers, as it is completely immune to their rifle and it's faster than they are.

The full stats for the Predator as of the latest internal builds can always be found on the wiki.


Vietcong Chameleon ZSU

The Vietcong Chameleon is a workhorse vehicle for the Vietcong, because it's capable of tackling a wide variety of enemies. It hard-counters light armour and aircraft, and soft-counters infantry and heavy armour, meaning it's good against everything except defenses. Unfortunately, it's base damage is fairly low, which also reduces it's soft-counter potential considerably, and it's hardcountered by the ARVN's omnipresent Beagles. Best used in groups.

Like the Predator, you can find the stats for the ZSU here on the wiki.

Is it possible to replace those unit preview videos you get in game with these videos? That'd be amazing to see.

Wow, everything is really looking good. I have to ask though, what happened to the Vietcong's green thumb protocol?

Also, is it me or should those Vietcong infantry getting shot by the Predator be dying almost instantly instead of lasting as long as under the jeep's fire as they are now?

If you want to break the balance then sure, we could do that.
