Twitch was a Space Pirate working for the Kimeran Pirates. He accompanied Manic and another Space Pirate on a mission to raid a Confederate science facility. He was equipped with low-energy Lockdown shells stolen by the Pirates, as well as a low-energy cloaking device developed by the Kimeran inventor, Velichek.

AbilitiesEdit

The ghost can cloak. It can still use attack and use other abilities while cloaked.

The ghost disables enemy mechanical or robotic units. Targets may not attack, move, or use abilities; passive detection and cloaking are disabled. Lockdown may be removed by a medic's restoration ability.

A nuclear silo may build and store one missile each.

A ghost launches and "aims" the nuclear missile at a targeted location. The missile arrives 10-15 seconds after. The ghost must aim for the entire duration; if the ghost takes any other action, or the ghost is killed, or the missile is cancelled, the launch is aborted and the missile is wasted.

The launch is broadcast to all players with the audio and visual message "Nuclear Launch Detected." The targeted location is visible to all players as a small flashing red dot.

The missile deals 500 damage or removes two-thirds of total hit points (whichever is greater) to all units within a wide blast radius. One nuke kill most units, and critically damage most buildings. Two nukes will destroy nearly anything. Without Ocular Implants, the ghost's targeting distance is within the blast radius.
