Tarantula Drone is the further development of Nod's Limpet Drone used in the Second Tiberium War.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

Tarantula Drone replaced Fanatics in Nod's arsenal as the self-destructing unit. Its explosives pack is very powerful; two Drones are enough to heavily damage or destroy a Mammoth Tank, depending on the angle of the attack. Ability to become stealthed while deployed has been kept from the original Limpet Drone, but Tarantula automatically deploys when remaining still. If necessary, the commander may order the Tarantula to detonate manually. Its movement speed is fast enough to dodge some projectiles fired at it.


  • It has the same voice as Buzzers.
  • During the development, Tarantulas were produced in squads.
  • When garrisoning a building, the Tarantula drone can be "flushed out" by an Engineer entering the same building. It is not known if this is a glitch.
