Requirements -
Rifleman Squad is GDI's basic infantry squad in Tiberium Essence.

Tiberium EssenceEdit

The Rifleman Squad is a six man group capable of taking out enemy infantry. For extra protection, they're capable of constructing Foxholes by using the Dig In ability. Once the Foxhole is ready, the Rifleman Squad immediately garrisons it, and a second infantry unit or squad can garrison it as well. Like many other units, the Rifleman Squad can also be airlifted to another location by Condor Transport. The Composite Armor Upgrade from the Armory increases the squad's hitpoints and provides some resistance to Tiberium radiation.
