- Epsilon Adept
Yclnicon
Epsilon Adepts are one of the main Epsilon infantry, using their psychic powers to control an enemy's mind or killing nearby infantry with a psychic blast.

The PsiCorps uses Epsilon Elites instead, which are stronger and amphibious due to levitating above ground with their powers, but are otherwise still the same.

Official description

The very core members of Yuri's Epsilon Army, the Adepts are individuals with above average psychic abilities, allowing them to bend the will of others to suit their goals. They pose a significant threat to almost all soldiers and human-operated vehicles, turning their victims against their compatriots with a mere thought.

Adepts are capable of defending themselves against infantry with a potent psychic blast which overwhelms the brains of unshielded soldiers caught within, resulting in death. Though powerful opponents, Adepts are not able to control the minds of animals and are completely defenseless against robotic units.[1]
