Tactical Analysis

  • Bringing the heat: Comprising of ex-soldiers of different armies worldwide, the Cable Commandos exist to give the Network decent anti-infantry capabilities. Using homebrewed and upgraded ADK-45, these men and women take it to the front to shoot down the infantry lines of the shadow cabal.
  • My little drone: Occasionally, Cable Commandos deploy fast-moving suicide drones that act like small artillery explosions when they hit targets.
  • Out of cable: For all their renown within the Network, Cable Commandos share the same weakness with virtually all of infantry: snipers and other anti-personnel weapons.
  • Sturdy focus: The most battle-hardened and gritty of Cable Commandos possess the ability that occurs after taking immense amounts of bullets: they strengthen their resolve to monstrous levels that they can effectively eschew death just to fight for another day. However, there is a delay before it happens, making it equally vulnerable to snipers.

Background

Excerpt from the diary of Kristoff Drescher, an ex-Peacekeeper:

"I bear witness to the fact that throughout my lifetime, the lifeblood of this world has been drained away by self-serving and avaricious individuals who work behind the scenes, who contrive nothing but disaster and turmoil against who they deem to be enemies, and who fail to consider the trouble that innocent people will go through by merely being in the crossfire...

But I am a soldier, and I know what must be done; and so I shall strengthen my will and I shall harness my weapon, and toughen myself up for war; and I shall ride out to meet the enemies of humanity and its future not for rage or glory, but for revenge, for all innocent lives they claimed for their agenda.

Therefore, as much as I lament against the harsh truth before me, I make this declaration to my enemies who press me into this battle, that none shall be able to afterwards say “I did not know, you did not warn me”;

I do not care why you took those jobs with the Allies, the Soviets, the Unionists, even the Syndicate, or why you continue to hold them. I only know that you were willing to sign contracts with those monsters, in exchange for personal gain. For it, you yourselves show that you declared yourselves the enemies of the human race, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why you signed that union card. I only know that you pay dues to a shadow cabal which conducts treasonous and malicious works against my world daily – and so your union hall and your work-sites are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why, as journalists, choose to subvert and distort the news to the whims of your overlords and decide to brainwash the common men with your poisonous words, rather than show the uncensored truth and let the masses decide for themselves. I only know that you have violated the public trust in the most vile and seditious manner, and thus your homes, offices, studios, vehicles, and any other place you may find yourself are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care that you aligned yourselves with countless traitors because you were swayed by their promised "reforms". Are you so ignorant and/or brainwashed that you could not see through their propaganda, to the fact that your sustenance was assured either way? What have you gained now that the bunkers you live in, and the military rations you depend on are part of the battlefield? Though I am a soldier, I can show you little mercy and compassion, for you have placed yourselves on the battlefield.

I know that all of these places and all of these people are part of the battlefield , not just because I was a Peacekeeper, and have experienced many battlefields in my day; but also because they declare that even our own homes are on the battlefield, whether we wish them to be or not, and I have no choice but to believe them; after all, the shadow overlords are busy preparing the grounds for war where they will trample the true heroes of humanity underfoot, to pillage and plunder the wealth of everymen, to subjugate the minds of innocent civilians to their will, and WILL do the same to every nation they step to. As an enlightened soldier who no longer fights because the shadow cabals tell him to, I shall act accordingly.

I will fight not because I desire it, but because I cannot justify any other course of action – when the enemy attacks, you must fight – you must kill or you might perish.

I smell you, betrayers; I can feel the traps you have laid for me and my true comrades, all about like a sticky spider’s web, yet we will not back down; and though you will kill some of us, you will not get us all before we have finished with you.

I stand here, ready, on the eve of battle, and I ask myself why I have been brought to the fronline of this battlefield, about to be thrust in, when I though my soldiering days were through; and I am reminded that there is by the Thirds Eye's decree, a time to kill, as well as a time to preach the truth to millions… who am I to question why?"
