The Nerve Center unlocks the second tier of units and structures. It allows the production of the Devourer Tank and Corrupter from the Warp Sphere, and also allows construction of the Technology Assembler and Gravity Stabilizer from a Drone Platform or Foundry.
In addition, the structure allows the use of three support powers: The Swarm, Lightning Spike, and Tiberium vibration scan. In Kane's Wrath, two additional support powers, Ichor Seed and Infestation, are also made available after building the structure.
Role in campaign
On one occasion, Nod captured one of these structures in order to gain the necessary codes for a Threshold tower.
