Renegades are a Neutral NPC force that produces resources to human players via attacking their resource structures (Trade Center, Oil Derrick, Iron Mine, Refinery).

Renegades do not send armies after the attacking player nor make any attempts to attack other players unless their base is being captured as all of their attention will focus on protecting The HQ.

Renegade outposts are usually poorly defended though at the center they are defended by more stronger units like HammerHeads and Hellfires as a way to ward off professional players.
