*Rockets for the silverback
*Last level of decoy is a bot Onyx Guard that fight with you
*Fire Sentry, a Sentry that both stuns and deals fire damage to enemies
*Command Centers, kind of like a panic button that allows the player to call in for reinforcements, Sniper teams is the first level followed by mortar teams and finally a hammer of dawn strike.
