Arm-Mounted Gattling Cannon
Devouts always existed within Nod's ranks. With the rapid developement of the cybernetic technologies and their application in medicine, the Brotherhood found itself with a sufficient amount of men to oppose the massive international armies of GDI anywhere, around the globe. Using the vast amount of poor, desperate followers that were eager to sacrifice and fight for the causes of Nod, combined with its Tiberium wealth, Nod commanders made these fighters the most common sight on the battlefield in the years that preceded the Ascension Conflict.
The Devout are cybernetic warriors, equipped with a Gun-Type weapon integrated into the left arm. They are Nod Defense commanders' only true anti-infantry units, and as such, are an important part of their arsenal. They are available at Tier 1 to even the most low-ranked of Nod Defense commanders.
The Devout's gun have a limited ammunition capacity, and once it is exhausted, they must stop firing temporarily to reload the Minigun. The Manual Reload special ability (Z) allows them to reload before the ammunition is exhausted for a much shorter pause between firing. The Devout can also heal themselves when they are not engaged in combat.
The Dark Armaments upgrade gives them a second Gun-Type weapon, which is integrated into the right arm of the body, along with extra ammunition.
