|“|| Do not think you are facing any ordinary Crawler, "prophet", mine has undergone certain... enhancements.|
Modified Obelisk of Light (Laser)
While apparently based on the design of a standard Nod Defense Crawler, Gideon's Crawler was heavily augmented. It was far more capable in combat, fortified with five times the armor of a normal Defense Crawler. Its Obelisks were modified, and functioned similarly to the GDI's Focus beam. Gideon's Crawler could also burrow and travel underground around a battlefield at will. The Crawler had other augmentations, such as a powerful defensive shield, but Gideon was forced to draw power from other Crawlers in order to operate these defenses.
Gideon's Crawler served as Gideon's sort of base of operations, stationed at the Giraud-Moebius Tiberium Crater along with the heart of Nod Separatist forces. Kane located Gideon's base after hacking his command Crawler in the Arctic and ordered Commander Parker to force Gideon's obedience.
Unwilling to be taken alive, Gideon used his Crawler's burrow ability to evade the commander, and sent engineers to activate the self-destruct mechanisms throughout the crater. Parker, however, managed to disarm the self-destruct devices with his own engineers. After Gideon's Crawler was severely damaged, Gideon surrendered to Kane. What happened to the Crawler after the battle is unknown.
