TW Confessor Cameo

Confessors are an elite Nod infantry unit appearing in Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.


The Confessor is a Nod officer and religious figure, working in interrogation and intelligence. He is equivalent to GDI's InOps operatives. Members of this caste can be assigned to lead militia squads, guiding the rage of the militants as well as preserving their faith (if need be by force) and educating them in the Ways of Nod. They are commanded by a Grand Confessor.

They usually wear black body armor along with a red cloak bearing the Brotherhood's insignia and a tall helmet with four visual receptors. They are armed with an advanced assault rifle and an array of hallucinogenic grenades, which can cause any enemy infantry unit, including even Zone Troopers, to panic and start shooting their own comrades.

Notable confessors

Notably, Brother Marcion, a high ranking Confessor and an accomplished writer, played an important role in Nod internal politics after the Second Tiberium War. After taking control of the Black Hand, he redefined the roles of Confessors in combat, creating Confessor Cabals; who continued to serve as the basic frontline infantry of the Black Hand throughout the Third Tiberium War and beyond.

The Marked of Kane are not assigned Confessors; due to the fact that their infantry are soulless machines, and as such, have no need for guidance.


  • In Tiberium Wars, a militant or rocket militant squad which is reduced to only their Confessor leader will change its voiceover to that of a Black Hand squad.
  • If a Militant Rocket Squad is reduced to only the confessor, the confessor will not automatically attack any targets, as the confessor range is shorter than the rocket squad and the game does not recognize the missing rocket men.
