The Basilisk-class Beam Cannon is Nod's light artillery unit. Though weaker and less advanced than the Cobra, it is more versatile and available earlier in the tech tree.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

The Beam Cannon is equipped with long range triple laser battery. The triple beam allows it to deal more damage to vehicles and easily devastate light infantry squads. Its armor is rather fragile however, therefore easily losing toe-to-toe with most units, especially aircraft and anti-vehicle infantry. In huge numbers, they can become quite an overwhelming force, as they are capable of inflicting damage upon enemy units and structures from afar. It also has the ability to charge Obelisks of Light, increasing their rate of fire and range.


  • The Basilisk was originally intended to be able to deploy a small Stealth Generator module, but that ability was scrapped in sake of the Phantom.
  • Until v.1.4 of Tiberium Essence, the Basilisk had the Overcharge ability, which allowed it to fire a single laser bolt that dealt devastating damage at an enemy target, but rendered the Basilisk immobile for a few seconds right afterwards. This ability was removed as of v.1.5.1.
