I tried to crush a pesky volunteer squad using a collector only to find that they cannot be crushed. Also, why on earth do they run faster than a BMP? Given their health too, an encounter with a BMP goes something like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uTO31B1R2c

This is quite intended because unlike mobs they do not regenerate their members,
Soooo who cares if they are heroic?
They are balenced accordingly with horde bonus....So leave four guys and you'll see the drop of damage
They require a GP and T1....Also having no upgrade other then the horde bonus one and like all units in ROTR they enjoy propaganda.

Still....as something thats ment to deal damage, like a bang for your buck...Its ment to be that way, see it more of a demotruck on feet then Infantry.
You should either get shmell troopers or hellions....I catagorize burantinos a B rank because a mob can rush them and get in range or minumum firing range of the burantino, and killing it.Tesla tanks kill a set amount of infantrty no questions asked....so that wont help you..hunchbacks are good if you know what your doing and know the Importance of denying ground by bombing it defensively.

Oh and shocktroopers with tesla guns are perfect agaisnt them too....

Still volenteers are awsome units that are still relevant lategame especially agaisnt ECA because they take Guard tower and mortar hits

If you're using tanks against volunteers, you're doing it wrong. Even a Sentinel won't help you. Get artillery or flame weapons.

Tesla is good vs the entire Mass Mobilization GP, is hitscan and insta-kills infantry, but has no AOE and lacks range when compared to what Buratino can achieve. If you're facing Volunteer spam, use Buratinos behind some form of meatshield so that they draw fire [since they will probably be on attack-move].

Dont try to crush volunteers, inteast build buratinos, and helions with the upgrade of the missile incendiary(i dont remember) and you will see the burning people.
