Non-lethal (tranquilizer) rifles
Standard body armor
Riot soldiers are special GDI units used during the Firestorm Crisis. They appear to use a dart sounding weapon that is used merely for calming riots. As such, Riot soldiers are largely useless for actual fighting purposes. However, tranquilized units retreat upon being shot at by the Riot soldiers.
They appear only in the mission Quell the Civilian Riots. Although they deal a small amount of damage, they would be able to kill a light infantry unit if a group was large enough (a group of 30 may do it).
They are a map-specific modification of the Elite cadre unit and can only be placed in the standard game if the Elite cadre has been modified or copied.
