CNCTW Foxhole Cameo

The Foxhole is a garrisonable structure used by GDI in the Third Tiberium War, created by rifleman squads with sandbags and shovels, letting any unit get in and use it like a civilian structure.

In-game structure

It can hold two infantry squads of the player's choosing, though the Rifleman squad which digs it will automatically enter it once it has been completed. It is treated identically to the common Civilian structure in that anti-garrison units, such as Nod's Black Hand troopers, Buzzers and rogue GDI Grenadier squads can easily clear them out for their own use, assuming they are not simply destroyed by oncoming fire. Unlike proper base defenses, Foxholes cannot be repaired, and unlike regular garrisonable buildings, troops will remain inside it until it is completely destroyed.

In Tiberium War, Foxhole can only hold 1 squad, and will eject its occupants if it is damaged too much and thus, leaving itself inert. However, the player was able to choose where to put the structure, unlike in Kane's Wrath, in which Rifleman squad would automatically build it at the place they are standing.

Assessment

Pros

  • Provides additional protection for infantry units.
  • Almost any GDI infantry unit can garrison the foxhole, with the exception of Zone Troopers and Zone Raiders.
  • Can be placed practically anywhere.
  • Can be placed in large numbers.
  • Immune to EMP attacks.

Cons

  • Weak against rocket squads and aircraft (e.g. Venom Patrol Crafts)
  • Can only hold one squad. Increased to two in Kane's Wrath.
  • Like civilian buildings, garrisoned infantry units are vulnerable to garrison-clearing weapons.
  • Cannot be repaired in the conventional way or with Engineers. Can only be repaired with a Steel Talons Mobile Repair Transport being located nearby. (Kane's Wrath only)
