For the base aircraft, see Black Widow.

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.

As with the standard Black Widow, the Black Widow is summoned from the Tech Center, requiring a Mercury Network Uplink to be built first.

AI behavior

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:

If all these does not exist, it will target airfields, base defenses, then finally units.


We've finally replicated the original U.S. Black Widow. This Alpha is far superior.
