Game Usage

  • Instigator can be considered an upgraded version of Pan. However, with slow movement speed, it does not function well as a scout. Instead, it's a harassing back lines unit, capable of capturing region as an air unit (and is the only air unit in the game capable of doing so).
  • Instigator can be countered fairly easily either with ASFs or a ground anti-air unit to block the capture progress. The only thing that prevents it from being hard-countered is due to its very good durability.
  • An Instigator in a chaotic battle at the right place can provide very high value harass, such as cutting off undefended nodes that are important links to another group of nodes.
