While GDI Sniper Teams are effective in their own right, Sokar Cobras are just as dangerous, if not more. Deployed in one-man units, Cobras are outfitted with state-of-the-art communications equipment as well as a rifle capable of penetrating the heaviest infantry armor known to man. Some Cobras are also outfitted with a localized stealth generator, a variant of the Ezekiel's Cape utilized by Black Hand Chameleons during the First War. Their uniform is based on that of First War Black Hand designs.
Cobras are dispatched alone and enjoy fast movement speed. Elite status Cobras gain the ability to cloak when not engaged in combat.
