- A Clairvoyant getting useful information from enemy labs
Clrvicon
The Clairvoyant is a small drone (technically classified as infantry) used by the Foehn as their infiltration unit. Unlike the other factions' counterparts, however, they cannot disguise as enemy infantry, but makes up for it by being even cheaper, amphibious and able to move even faster with the support of Spinblades.

Clairvoyants are also useful as detectors, as they can see cloaked units and notice disguised enemies. To help them in catching the latter, they are armed with a stun beam that can immobilize infantry, allowing Foehn troops to deal with them.

Clairvoyants can be transformed into Duplicants through a Nanofiber Sync.

Description

One of the oddest units to be found, the Clairvoyant is neither a soldier nor a spy, but a weirdly shaped drone that can benefit from the use of a Spinblade thanks to its tiny windflow drive mounted on its back, and can also traverse water zones easily. It serves a dual role: identifying infiltrators that enter a Foehn base and, curiously, being an infiltrator itself. Unlike other infiltrators, though, Clairvoyants are unable to disguise themselves, but where it lacks in subtlety it makes up in its cost and movement speed, especially once boosted by a Spinblade. Foehn commanders typically send droves of Clairvoyants towards an enemy base, as there is a high chance that a few of them will be able to reach their intended destinations, unless said destination is enclosed behind walls or a gate.

The drone is not unarmed: it is equipped with a short range stun beam that immobilizes infantry that get in its firing range, and is used to stun enemy infiltrators as well once they are detected. The range of the stun gun is greatly increased if it takes refuge in a transport with fire ports, allowing it to freeze enemy infantry in their tracks as the transport guns them down. It also has sensor systems that allow it to detect stealthed units like Epsilon Shadow Tanks. Bear in mind that Clairvoyants, while immune to Dogs and Spooks as well as a host of battlefield hazards like radiation, are vulnerable to EMP and magnetic-based attacks.

Overview

As with other espionage units, the Clairvoyant can infiltrate an enemy building, but the effects will vary depending on the building:

Assessment

Pros

  • Can infiltrate enemy buildings to give an advantage over the enemy.
  • A successful infiltration into the enemy's tech lab can unlock stolen tech units, and potentially change the game's outcome.
  • Cheaper ($300) and tougher than Spies, Saboteurs and Infiltrators.
  • Amphibious.
  • Can detect disguised, cloaked and submerged enemies.
  • Fast movement speed when boosted by Spinblades.
  • Can stun infantry including disguised ones.
  • Immune to Dogs and Spooks.
  • Immune to mind control, poison and radiation.

Cons

  • Unarmed.
  • Cannot disguise.
  • Short stun range.
  • Vulnerable to EMP and magnetic weapons.
  • Weak against anti-infantry fire.
