- Worker being pushed to work
Gen1 Worker Icons

Workers were employed by the GLA to perform manual labor; occasionally this required some coercion.

Background

I'm hungry...
- A complaining Worker

Workers' tasks included building and repairing structures and carrying supplies. They were trained in Command Centers and Supply Stashes. Workers were also trained to safely remove landmines. Being unarmed, Workers were very easy targets for enemy forces and therefore required protection; however, unlike Construction Dozer they were very cheap to train and could not be neutralized/hijacked and stolen by the enemy.

An ideal tactic for GLA players would be to try and capture an enemy power plant, as power would allow a Worker to construct buildings faster.

Abilities

Um, okay.
- Worker preparing to clear mines

Tactics

I will do what I must!
- Worker on the build

Since workers are technically a type of infantry, they could be moved freely by entering a transport vehicle to open up a new base. The Construction Dozers of USA and China, especially China, was hard to be moved due their heavy load. It's a tactic to expand into expansions in a short period of time. A Technical was often the preferred method of transferring Workers quickly across the battlefield. They were also very easy to spam, making the tactic of "Dozer Hunting" more or less a major headache, more so because they be put into buildings, tunnel networks, vehicles, and just about anything else infantry can be put in. It did not help opposing generals that they were constructable both at the Command Center and Supply Building.

Counters

It is not me who you want!
- Worker under fire

However, workers were very easily killed due to their low armor protection. They could be easily violated by other tanks and vehicles especially light vehicles. Workers also easily could be killed by snipers. Due to the GLA who did not have power, the constructions and productions were also slower than other factions.

Structures Built

Are there not better tools?
- A worker complaining about being ill-equipped.
