One major weakness with this weapon system however, is its lack of
self-defensive armament. This makes it completely helpless against
units immune to psychic control such as Terror drones, robot tanks and
air units when airborne. As mentioned above however, it's greatest
weakness is that this weapons system is prone to burning out when it
has too many units under its control. This led to the tactic of
rushing the Mastermind with many cheap and fast units such as
Conscripts, Flak Tracks or IFVs. Paratrooper conscripts are ideal for
this task as they are both free and plentiful. Yuri's Masterminds can
control up to 3 units each without going into overdrive.
Rush with cheap units to achieve self destruct.
Use flyers or robots (terror drone, robot tank) as immune to control
