The Obelisk of Light is Nod's most advanced base defense. It fires a powerful laser beam, which is able to destroy vehicles and kill infantry with ease.

Tiberian DawnEdit

The first Obelisks were deployed by Nod during the First Tiberium War. It was powerful enough to destroy a Hum-Vee with one shot, while heavier GDI vehicles would require more hits. Many Nod bases were guarded by Obelisks, and one used to defend Temple of Nod in Sarajevo.

Tiberian SunEdit

The second generation Obelisk of Light was used by both Nod and CABAL during the Second Tiberium War and Firestorm Crisis. Its design was very different from the previous version, but like the first version, the new Obelisk was able to destroy anything on the ground. After CABAL's betrayal, he developed his own CABAL Obelisk and Obelisk of Darkness, both of which were used to defend CABAL Core in Libya. CABAL Obelisk had greater firepower and was able to shoot through Firestorm Wall. Obelisk of Darkness was otherwise similar, except it was designed to defend against air targets.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

In Tiberium Essence, Nod uses a new version of Obelisk, which design is closer to the first version. It can be powered by three Basilisk Beam Cannons. Each powering Basilisk adds 10% boost in damage and range for the Obelisk. This makes the Obelisk very deadly base defense, which can decimate Titans, Devourers and many other vehicles in seconds. However, it lacks anti-air capabilities, making it vulnerable to air attacks. Swarming infantry may also turn out to be a problem.
