CNCTW Rift Generator Cameo

The Rift Generator is a powerful Scrin superweapon, one that displays a level of technological prowess dwarfing even the advanced technology of GDI's ion cannon.

Background

Deployed during the invasion of Earth, the Rift Generator was capable of opening a wormhole and ejecting everything in a large radius into deep space. Heavily armoured buildings, such as the Construction Yard, Drone Platform and superweapon buildings can survive the rift opening directly above them but are heavily damaged by it.

GDI InOps noticed that similar to their superweapon, this towering monolith needed a certain warmup time before gathering enough energy to produce the miniature black hole. This was a considerably long time which GDI exploited during their assault on the Rome tower and in their final assault on the Relay Node at Ground Zero.

Abilities

CNCTW Rift Cameo
Rift The Rift Generator summons a vortex inflicting horrific damage to anything unfortunate enough to be caught in its blast.

Behind the Scenes

The effect that the rift generator produces seems to be similar to the chrono vortex accidentally created by using the Chronosphere during the Second World War, however, the rift seen in the Third Tiberium War is controlled, while the chrono vortex was incredibly destructive and rampant with lightning bolts.
