The Zone Commando is GDI's new commando unit in Tiberium Essence.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

The Zone Commando replaces the original Commando in GDI's arsenal. He can kill enemy infantry with ease with his minigun, but is less effective against vehicles. Against structures, he can use Orbital Strike target painter. After a few seconds painting the target structure, a miniature Ion Cannon strikes the structure, destroying it. His EMP grenades ability allows him to disable enemy vehicles or structures for seven seconds. Like Zone Troopers and Zone Defenders, he is able to cross Tiberium fields without taking damage thanks to his zone armor.


  • The Zone Commando uses the voice of Zone Captain from C&C4.
  • In Version 1.6 Beta, when ordered to attack structures, the Zone Commando does not call down an Orbital Strike automatically.
  • In Version 1.6 Beta, the EMP grenade ability is glitched and does not affect vehicles at all.
  • In Version 1.6 Beta, Orbital Strike can only target structures, and Zone Commando doesn't carry explosive charges like his "regular" counterpart, therefore he cannot destroy walkers like regular GDI Commando. This design flaw also renders one of the optional objectives in GDI Mission "Assault on Temple Prime", namely "Destroy an Avatar with a Commando", impossible to be accomplished.
