[BETA] Unused units

Recommended Posts

After messing around with some files I noticed you could build convoy trucks for transportation (includes build icon too!), I know this is old already, but are there any other units that were cut besides the Helicarrier?

Phase Transport for Aftermath. Was used in 2 mission. (Lets Make a Steal and Test Drive). It is Cloaked APC that holds one and is armed with Chrono Tank rockets. It also has a icon.

Hey, I did use some of those trucks in the past. They can hold 1 person.

Megan?

Wut? Wat?

A redhead commando (possibly female) in the picture before this post, the unit was cut from the game. That's Megan.

Makes you wonder why they cut out certain stuff. Then again, you only need one commando.

I think one of the 2 would be anti vehicle. Just like the Ghoststalker and the Sniper in TibSun?

Read the article and the linked Petro forum post and you know exactly as much as we do, X3M...

Convoy trucks are often used in missions.

 

Yeah although you could never build them.

 

However holy sh*t Megan? This is the first I've heard of her, is she like Tanya's bitchy sister or something?  :D

Turns out theres an icon for the badger on the C&C wiki. It could have actually fit a role as a bomber for the soviets. But there were probably too many planes already.

If you just try to make a badger buildable, it's not selectable and therefore unusable

 

But paste this into a map if you want to change yaks into badgers:

[YAK]
Image=BADR
Primary=ParaBomb
Secondary=none
Ammo=5

 

For balance reasons you'll probably also want increase Cost=

The Badger is bugged. You can make it buildable but you can't make it take off to attack targets. Spy Plane has the same bug. This looks to be done to keep the player from giving a new order to Badger or Spy Plane once they are called in by "super weapon" or a map trigger.

An Irish stealth commando to contrast/complement the gung-ho American gunslinger one, according to that post on the Petro forums.

I've read from cnc wikia that the Giant Ants come with a Tesla version dubbed "Tesla Ant" , I'm not talking about the queen but I guess this is just another unused unit. Also, all giant ants have their own build icon. Most of the new units in Counter-Strike are meant solely for campaigns but I think it's not that hard to make them buildable (like the early-version Tesla tanks, Volkov, Chitzoi, ATS and tactical nuke Migs).

I remember Tesla Ants appear in one aftermath multiplayer map (I forgot which one this was).

It's just a mod unit. They found the icon somewhere and thought it was a real unit, because they Didn't Do The Research. That's all. :boring:

 

That wikia is far from accurate. Be sure to look for references if you see such things; many won't have 'em.

 

Also, all giant ants have their own build icon.

Again, mods. None of the ants have, or have ever had, official icons.
