Mini-ion cannon (Blast)
The Zone Captain is the pinnacle of infantry units available to the Defense Class of GDI.
The most decorated and experienced GDI soldiers can be granted the rank of a Zone Captain. These elite troopers wear the heaviest suits of armour and carry portable ion cannon target designators, giving them immense power on the battlefield.
The Zone Captain is a fairly robust infantry unit, belonging to the Defensive class GDI crawler. It uses a miniature ion cannon that takes about 2 seconds to fire, coming down in the familiar multi beam to single beam pattern from CNC3. Also, the weapon has a recharge time around six seconds. The Zone Captain, while being weak to guns, is easily able to beat a Nod Devout in two blasts, and a Nod Raider in three such blasts, preferably keeping the Raider still as the unit fires, because the laser does not follow the Zone Captain's target.
The beam itself is not a laser damaging weapon, but a blast weapon. The weapon has a minimum range, and must move away from its target if it gets too close. The Zone Captain may be upgraded with the Medical Training upgrade to heal himself when garrisoned, and jump packs, to cliff jump, and also allows it to jump quickly to a different destination. An achievement can be earned if the Zone Captain damages 7 units with a single attack from its weapon.
