The Black Widow Alpha is a superior version of the Black Widow used by the United States. Not fully satisfied with the standard Black Widow, the US spent additional resources on the Black Widow Alpha, which functions identically but is slightly tougher and lasts longer.
The AI will use Black Widow Alpha similar to how they use superweapons, so they will target the following structures, assuming they are not cloaked. These are ordered according to priority:
- War Factories
- Tier 3 technology providers (e.g. Epsilon Pandora Hub)
- Power providers
- Construction Yards
If all these does not exist, it will target airfields, base defenses, then finally units.

In the campaign, Black Widow Alpha is available to all subfactions of the Allied Nations since Insomnia.
- Black Widow Alpha becomes usable for the first time in Insomnia. Since this mission, all Allied subfactions will utilize Black Widow Alpha universally.
