Atreides seem to rely much more on long-range fighting. Look at their units: Sniper, Kindjal, Mongoose, Minotaurus. Long range units for all types of targets. The Stealth APC is also deadly, not only for transporting infantry (esp Engineers) covertly, but for acting like a short range Fremen Warrior that won't die to dedicated Anti-Infantry weapons. The repair vehicle is essential for long term survival. The main battle vehicles - Mongoose and Minotaurus, are slow so the repair vehicle can quickly catch up with them. It can be cumbersome though but you need to live with that.

Ordos rely on speed, regeneration and using the enemy. The Laser Tank and Dust Scout emblem the 1st 2 points, Deviators and Chaos Lightning embody the latter point. Their infantry is also quite good when used properly - Chemical Troopers (cost effective Anti-Infantry, also surprisingly effective against large structures in numbers), AA Troopers, Mortar, Saboteur.

Harkonnen rely on brute force and genocide weaponary (Flamethrower Infantry, Buzzsaw, Flametank, Inkvine, Devastator, Death Hand - all are highly efficient infantry genociders). Look at their version of the Ornithopter, the Gunship. Perfect for amassing in large numbers and flying in to destroy Construction Yards, Factories, Starports and other essential structures, regardless of casualties. Harkonnen need combined arms though, unlike Atreides where units are versatile.

2 chem infantery? Not likely. But if the enemy has no kindjal or mino's (yet) You can attack with the dust scout rush. Hmm, maybe that's the good reason why I'm switched to Ordos.

They have no fast vehicles, except for that Trike. And that's the most less of the 3 infantery killers (buzzsaw, dustie, trike). But they have a good airforce. And good longrange. Too bad so many players are Atreides. It becomes boring, playing only Atreides...

Trike, the first unit of the Atreides. Light vehicle with an machine rifle...

And even with 20 chems alone you can't make it. When you completed that much. You have probably already some Trikes/Snipers
