The Lurker is a level 1 submarine; it is good against units that does not have anti-submarine weaponry such as battleships and submerged amphibious units, although it cannot take much punishment itself and would be destroyed quickly should the enemy be able to counterattack.

Although Lurkers can attack ships, they will not respond to an attack command on hovercrafts and other floating units such as the Pelican, though it is possible to work around this by either suppressing fire on a location close to the enemy unit, or targeting a unit situated on the other side of it so that the torpedoes collide with the floating unit instead.

The CORE counterpart to the Lurker is the Snake.
