The Phantom's energy rifle inflicts heavy damage to a single target. It can fire while cloaked; however its visible round betrays its position. It requires quite a bit of energy to keep cloaked, especially when moving. The best way to locate a Phantom is by sweeping the area with many cheap units.
Tactics and Strategy
The Phantom has low damage-per-second compared to its cost, but since it remains cloaked even while firing it can deliver its damage very safely. Try to kill enemies with a single attack (from more than one Phantom, if necessary) to deny your opponent the opportunity to repair their unit. The enemy can still decloak and kill your Phantom by bringing a unit nearby, so make sure you have forces ready to protect your Phantoms' retreat if necessary.
