Invincible Demolition Trucks

To make indestructible Demolition Trucks, build 5-6 Demolition Trucks and have an Iron Curtain ready. Drive the Demolition Trucks towards the enemy base and use the Iron Curtain on them before the enemy can attack them. The Demolition Trucks will not explode until they reach the target.

Car or cow bomb hints

  • Have a Yuri mind control a car or other civilian vehicle, then have an Ivan put a bomb on it and drive it into the enemy base. Park it near something with relatively little armor. The AI will not attack the vehicle but wary human players might have their men force fire on it.

  • Take over some cows or cars with a Yuri, then control them. Go next to you enemy's base andhave a Crazy Ivan put the bomb on the cow or car. Walk it up next to your enemy building and explode it to destroying or damage the building.

Finding enemies

Whene playing a CPU or an opponent and you are a Soviet Commander, the following is a good way to find them. If there is water (for example, Arctic Circle), first build a Shipyard then make five to ten Squids. Have two or three Squids guard your Shipyard. Use the rest of the Squids to scout. The missing units are most likely submarines. Destroy all of the bridges with Ivans and scout around all of the water. You should be able to find them easier if you also leave bait somewhere (only for a CPU opponent).

Build anywhere on map

Make the building you want and, when it is ready, click and hold on a part of the screen where the building can be placed. The plan must be white. After that, drag the plan onto the toolbar -- the plan must be white all the way to the tool bar. Do not release the mouse button. Now press the up, down, left, right buttons to move around the map. When you are at the desired location on the map, release the mouse button. Wherever the cursor was over the toolbar, the building will be directly underneath.

Destroying the Kremlin as Soviets

Don't worry about your base being destroyed. Send your Kirov Airships up the left side of the map. You can disable the Kremlin's defense by destroying the nuclear power plant. If executed properly, you should have no resistance at the Kremlin.

Multi-player strategies

  • Make a Spy Uplink facility so you can see into all of the bases. If you have captured a Soviet cloning facility, you can do this more effectively. Build 25 Chrono Legionnaires, and separate them into five groups of five. Teleport them outside of the opponent's base to minimize the time it takes to return. Using waypoint mode, target the five strongest defensive forces in your opponent's base. If the base is larger, you may need more. Teleport them in. While being erased, the units cannot fire back. After those five are gone (it should not take long), take out the rest of the forces. After that, a good idea would be to fly in some Engineers to take all of the enemy's buildings. If they surrounded anything with walls, you will need fire-support to destroy the wall.

  • On a multi-player game, select "Unholy Alliance" and choose "Cuba" at the multi-player screen. Build all the Soviet and Allied buildings then train 20 Terrorists and create 20 IFVs. Put one terrorist in each IFV, then spread them out around your enemy's base and blow them up. Pretty much everything will be destroyed in their base. Continue using this strategy until you win.

Allied strategies

  • Use the following trick to overrun any CPU controlled Soviet base as the Allies. It is especially recommended in the second to last Allies mission, where you must face a heavily defended base with three nuke silos which must be defeated in order to claim victory. First, make a very heavily fortified main northern base. Abandon the far northern mineral field and sell the ore factory there. The most important things in this part of the strategy are to create a well protected beachhead to the south of this base with Prism Towers and Patriot Missile Launchers. The second item involves some use of the Prism Tower creep strategy. First, create a Power Plant to the outside of your base in the direction of where you want to defend or attack. After that, build Prism Towers as far as possible in the direction you want to go. Finally, build another Power Plant next to the Prism Towers you just built -- thereby extending your range of building Prism Towers and also raising your power supply in the process. Continue doing this and adding extra Towers where needed to create a solid line of access between Towers, and amplify the damage. Do this on the bridge just north of your base and blow it out so the enemy cannot cross. Fortify the Towers there with all the extra GIs you have around your base. Now that your northern base is well defended, proceed to the second step. Create an MCV and Transport Hovercraft and put the MCV into it. Next, go to the far right of the screen with the Hovercraft, and then straight down. This is the safest ship lane on the map. While you are moving south with the Hovercraft, have a Barracks and a Prism Tower building. Also watch the bridge by the northern base to make sure nobody has managed to sneak through your defenses. As soon as you land the Hovercraft on the far southern island, deploy the MCV and build your Barracks and Prism Tower. Then immediately build another Prism Tower and a Power Plant. When you have that base defended well enough, build another Ore Refinery on the southern island in case the nukes manage to take out the one on the main island and you are low on money. Employ the Prism Tower creep method mentioned before with a little more caution when building in range of Telsa Coils. You should be able to wipe out their base easily. Make sure that if they launch nukes, you repair or replace all buildings hit by them, especially those needed to build Prism Towers, as well as Powerplants. Another useful thing about having a base on the right side of the southern island is that this is where most of the enemy planes fly through. You can build Patriot Missile Launchers which will slow down or halt most of the enemy paratrooper activity on the northern island. Most of the time, the enemy will launch his nukes at either your ship building capabilities or the middle of your main base. Keep a spare MCV around in case it is taken out. This is not necessary, but is a precaution in case they figure out to attack the southern base via nukes. This strategy allows you to complete the mission in near half of par time in easy mode.

  • Build around 15 or 20 Prism Tanks, 5 IFVs, and one Engineer. Get the Engineer in one of the IFVs and send the entire group to an enemy base. Once near the base, the Prism Tanks will destroy anything that moves and the IFVs will provide some air cover and repair.

  • During a multi-player skirmish, build up to 10 Airforce Command Centers, each with four Harriers. Train five spies and infiltrate the enemy base as following: one spy near a power plant, one spy near war factory, one spy near barracks, one spy near the wall around tech center, and the last spy near an ore refinery. Insert the first spy in the power plant, so power goes down. At that moment, command one group of Harriers to destroy a corner point of the wall around the tech center so a spy can enter. Use your other Harriers (as long as their power is down) to attack the other power plants and your spies to infiltrate the nearest building, stealing technologies and money.

  • These tips work best in "A Path Beyond 2". Deploy your MCV and send one or two GIs to other side on the map, so you know where they are. Build a Powerplant, Refinery, Barracks and maybe a new Powerplant. Then, build a Radar. Build 20 to 30 rocketeers. Have some defend your base, send the others to the enemy base and destroy it, They cannot attack you because they have not built any air defenses yet. If you attack the Soviets, you will need more rocketeers because they have some Flak Troopers. Build your base fast, build the rocketeers, and find the enemy base ASAP.

  • Make a Chronosphere, 3 IFVs, and 3 Chrono Legionnaires. Place the Chrono Leggionnaires in the IFVs, Chronosphere near the enemy base, and start deconstructing.

  • The Grand Cannon is an excellent defensive weapon, but it is also a very good assault weapon. Deploy your MCV fast, build a Power Plant, a Barrack or a Refinery (depending on the map), a Radar, then the Grand Cannon. Do not place it on your base. Have a IVF ready with a engineer on it. Use it to find the enemy base. Go to the inner side of the base because it almost has no defense there. Undeploy the IVF and capture a building, then place the Grand Cannon on the enemy base. The enemy has no chance to destroy the Cannon. Destroy the War Factory first, so they cannot build Tanks and attack your Cannon. Also build some Pillboxes to help the Cannon. After destroying half of the base, most of people will surrender. This works well in multi-player mode, but is not too effective against the CPU.

  • Play with superweapons on, then use Aegis as air defense and GIs as ground defense. Build a Chronospere. Build 3 Prism tanks, 3 Mirage tanks, 3 IFVs and an engineer. Place the engineer in one IFV. Chronoshift the whole lot into the back of the enemy's base. Use Mirages on infantry and tanks (make sure they cover the Prism tanks), Prisms on structures, IFVs for air cover and repair. Burn your way through the base and by the end you'll have a promoted attack force and can move onto bigger fish. By this time, the Chronospere is ready again.

  • To defeat the CPU in Skirmish mode, make two Snipers and two IFVs as soon as possible. Give every Sniper their own vehicle, then rush them to the tip of the enemy's base. Snipe as many troops as possible. Then, act as if you are about to attack an important building. The remaining units (Tanks) will come after you. Luckily, the IFVs can outrun the Tanks, just as long as you can see them coming. The Tanks will follow you to their death. After that, run the IFVs back through the base and unload the Snipers to guard the IFVs from infantry. Eventually the IFVs will become promoted all the way and be very deadly. Take out the enemies base or run them dry. Beat up everything except for the Construction Yard and repeat the process to get more points to show off.

  • To capture an enemy Construction Yard, build 10 to 15 tanks, 10 GI and at least 6 Engineers. Send the tanks followed by send the GI and Engineers. Have the GI defend the Engineers all the way to the enemy base. Send the an Engineer into the Construction Yard then the rest of the Engineers into the Tesla Reactors. Have everyone leave including the enemy Construction Yard. Note: The remaining Conscripts, Tanks, etc. will destroy the Tesla Reactors and you will win instantly.

  • If you are alone on an island with only a bridge to get to your aggressive opponent's base, get a lot of money. Then, build 16 IFVs, 8 Engineers, and 4 GIs. Put the GIs and Engineers into 12 of the IFVs. Put a Rocket IFV at the left side of the bridge, but directly in front of it, and then back it up with an Engineer IFV. Put a Machine Gun IFV behind the Engineer IFV and back that up with an Engineer IFV. To the right of the Rocket IFV, put a Machine Gun IFV with an Engineer IFV behind it, a Rocket IFV behind that, and another Engineer IFV at the back. Repeat the steps to have the perfect bridge defense. The engineer IFVs will repair the other IFVs and each other.

  • Use the following trick for easily defending your base. This only works on levels with bridges leading into your base. To defend your base, you need 2 Prism Tanks, 4 Tanks, 3 IFVs, and 1 Engineer for every bridge leading into your base. Take the Engineer and put him in an IFV. It is now a repair IFV. Take 3 Tanks and line them up at the start of the bridge, but not so far that if the bridge gets destroyed your troops will fall in the water. After that, put the 2 Prism tanks directly under the left and right Tanks. Put the repair IFV between them. Now put the final Tank under the repair IFV and the 2 regular IFVs on each side of that. With the repair IFV in the middle anything damaged will be repaired automatically. The set up should appear as follows, with T indicating a Tank, P for a Prism Tank, R your repair IFV, and I your IFV.

  • To put your own Spy in your Battle Lab to get a new unit, first have an Engineer, Spy, and any unit that can do damage. Make the unit attack your Battle Lab. Then, stop it and select both the Engineer and the Spy. Click the "Way Point" button on the control panel. Make one way point toward it, then one on the building. The Spy and Engineer will both go in. You can then build Chrono Commanders.

  • On the final Allied mission, build two to four Chrono Legionaries and tell them to deconstruct all the nuclear power plants. After that, move on to everything else (Red power plants first).

  • To take out Soviet Demolition Tucks easily, get an EMP Tank and keep shooting at them. They will disappear eventually and there will be no nuclear explosion. Note: If you stop "paralyzing" the Demolition Truck by attacking something else or moving, then it will continue moving as normal.

  • For a new type of unit, build your Battle Lab and use any unit to damage the building. Select an Engineer and a Spy, then use waypoint mode to make the units enter the building. The Engineer will enter the building to fix it and the Spy will follow him. The Spy will steal technology from it and you will be able to purchase a unit that can kill enemy units using one bullet, and destroy buildings. He is also very fast.

  • To take out any building, build the Choronosphere and make it completely ready. Before getting it ready or after that, build three or four Prism Tanks. Have them together closely then send them anywhere or close to any building you want to destroy. Order the Prism Tanks to only attack that building or structure. They will destroy it with two or three hits.

  • When playing the Allies, make a Construction Yard, Ore Refinery, and Barracks. Then, build 20 to 100 Rocketeers. Fly to the enemy base and destroy soviet Flaks or Allied Missile Launchers, then destroy the enemy Construction Yard and all other things.

  • Put GIs in IFV trucks, allowing them to fire machine gun bullets. It can take up to 60 men down.

  • Make about a dozen Harriers and have them ready for use, then create a Weather Storm and make sure that you blow up enough Power Stations to knock out all the bases defense systems (for example, Flak Cannons, Tesla Coils, etc.), After the storm, all the Flak Cannons will be deactivated. IMMEDIATELY use your Harrier aircraft to blow up the enemy Construction Yard (or any other vital structure) before power is restored. Note: You can also use this strategy to destroy the enemy Nuke Silo.

  • Make a large group of dogs, then build half that amount of soldiers (any type except Rocketeers). Build the same amount of any tanks as soldiers. Set two dogs to guard a soldier, and each soldier to guard a tank. Send the tanks to attack a base and they will be completely guarded. If someone attacks a soldier, the dog will tear him to pieces. If an attack on a tank is made, soldiers will take care of the problem.

  • Build your defenses up to the maximum then make a Construction Yard. Get near the base and unpack it, then build a Power Plant, then a Grand Cannon Turret near it. Keep doing this around the undefended parts of the base. Your enemy's base will be destroyed.

  • To counter a nuclear threat, make two or three IFVs and the same number of Tanyas. Load the Tanya into the IFV and Chronsphere them very near to the side of the nuclear silo. Ungarrison the Tanyas and destroy the nuclear silo. You can also make things easier by infiltrating a power station with a Spy. This will shut down the enemy power station. You can also use this tactic during an air raid.

  • Make a Chronosphere, IFV, Engineer, and eight to ten Prism Tanks. Make Repair IFV (IFV and Engineer) and teleport it and Prism Tanks by Chronosphere to the enemy base. Attack all buildings to easily win.

  • Don't build anything other than at least sixteen to twenty Harriers. Have them target the main enemy building. Once it is destroyed, all the other buildings will be converted to men and they will all attack your base. Build four or five tanks and a dozen men to defend and they will kill all enemies.

  • Capture a Soviet base and train a Tesla Trooper and an IFV. Put the Tesla Trooper in the IFV to create a Tesla Tank. Build lots of them and attack.

Soviet strategies

  • Make a Barracks, Battle Lab, and War Factory as fast as possible. Build one Kuscov airship and send it to the enemy's base, and bomb it. Bomb the construction site first so they cannot build, as well as ground to air missile turrets.

  • While playing the Soviets, build a Cloning Vat. Build about a huge amount of Conscripts, then charge them at your opponent's base. If the opponent has Deselators, destroy them first with either Kirovs, V3's, or Dreadnoughts. Unless his base is very well defended (or you did not build enough conscripts) there should be simply too many conscripts for the enemy units and the defensive structures to kill. Destroy their Power Plants first so you do not need to worry about defensive structures.

  • When playing as the Soviets, you can send much more Infantry into the Amphibious Transport then you think. Usually you can only send 12 Infantry, but if you put Infantry into Flak Tracks first, you can have up to 20, plus the 4 Flak Tracks, inside the Transport.

  • The Soviets can use Paradrop like the Allies. Deploy an Engineer, then find a Heliport (or something like that) and capture it. Click on a "defense tab" a tab that builds defensive weapons (for example, Tesla Coil, Flak Cannon, etc.). After you click the tab, you will find "Paradrop" in the list. Use that for reinforcements. The paratroopers are Conscripts.

  • Use a Yuri to mind control a school bus, then load five Infantry units into the bus and drive it inside an enemy base. The Allies will not fire on the bus.

  • Take control of the Soviet side. When you make your MCV, build an Ore Refinery and Barracks. After that, build a War Factory. Create more Terror Drones and send all of them to enemy's War Miner or Chrono Miner. When the enemy loses all of his War Miner or Chrono Miner his economy will fail.

  • For aggressive Soviet player that want to rush the enemy, first build the Power Plant followed by the Refinery, Barracks, Radar, and War Factory in order. When everything is built, click on the Miner next to Rhino Tanks. Get three or four Tesla Tanks and get ready to attack plan your attack on the Construction Yard.

  • When starting the game, first build two Refineries. When you have Power Plants and Barracks, build a War Factory. After that, build a few Ore Miners. Next, build about 15 tanks. After that, just attack.

  • Your Conscripts are cheap and an excellent troop type. On early levels, use them to conquer enemies. Make about 40 to 100 Conscripts and attack.

  • When facing the Allies while playing as the Soviets, quickly build the Construction Yard, Refinery, Barracks, Radar, and War Factory. After that, build a Battle Lab. After that, build one Kirov Airship. Send the airship to the enemy base and bomb all the important buildings, especially the Construction Yard. You are then free to do whatever desired from there.

  • Make ten to twelve Yuris and place them all around your base. Set them as Team 1 (CTRL+ 1). When an enemy attacks, use the Yuris second attack. This should destroy most of the attacking force.

  • To use the V3 Rocket effectively, have about three Rhino tanks for each V3 Rocket to protect them. If you have about five V3 Rockets and twelve to fifteen Rhino tanks, you can take out a medium base. One of the reasons is because the V3 Rocket fire is very long.

  • Make a big number of Terror Drones and invade your enemys base with them. All of your enemy's infantry and veichles will be destroyed.

  • Build as many as Oil Refineries as you can to have money which you can spend for more Barracks and Warships.

  • Use a Yuri or Yuri Prime and mind control an enemy Desolator and deploy it (near their barracks recommended). Remove the mind control by holding CTRL and firing at the ground with the Yuri. The Desolator is now under CPU control, but will not be undeployed. It will damage all nearby units with its radiation.

Potent nuclear weapon

Play as Libya and build four or five Demolition Trucks, making sure your Nuclear Missile and Iron Curtain are ready. Position all the trucks just outside the base. Use the Iron Curtain on as many of them as possible, then drive them into the base, equally spreading them out in a circle. After that, set your missile in the middle of the base. If done correctly, it should set off all the Demolition Trucks for ultimate destruction.

Save your buildings from the nuke

When the Soviets send the nukes at you, send a Chrono Legionnaire and have him force fire on your important buildings (Construction Yard, War Factory, etc.). The nuke will hit and kill the units, but the buildings will remain unharmed. Be careful -- if the nukes hit a different part of the base, order the legionnaire to stop before the building is removed.

Easy wins hints

  • Once you start Skirmish mode, built a Power Plant, Ore Refinery, Barracks, and War Factory. Stop building the structures, then produce two to four Miners and a minimum of three tanks. You can also build two or three Pillboxes or Sentry Guns. Build Radar and explore the map so you can see where and when the enemy will attack. Try to defend your base with only tanks and anti-air units (IFV, Rocketeers, Flak Trooper, Flak Track). If playing as the Allies, build a repair vehicle (IFV and Engineer). After each enemy attack, repair your tanks and use the environment as a defense advantage. For example, send two or three Snipers under a tree. After successfully defending your base from several attacks, build other structures. Do not build a Prism or Tesla Tower, as it is a waste of money and energy. Air defense structures are acceptable. To "upgrade" your defense, build six to eight Mirage or Apocalypse Tanks and place them in several strategic places to block the enemy. Once you have about 9,000 money, mass produce your primary assault units (Prism Tanks or Apocalypse Tanks) and build another repair vehicle (if playing as the Allies) to cover the damage in the middle of attacks. Producing additional anti-air units is also useful. Note: If you built the Apocalypse Tank you already have air defenses. Finally, start your attack. One good, planned attack can destroy even the most brutal enemy. Practice this strategy and modify it to your needs.

  • When playing as the Allies against the CPU, you must build your War Factory and Barracks away from the rest of your base. If the enemy launches the nuke, their first target is your War Factory, and then your Barracks. You may also want to build a backup and set the rally points out of the range of the nukes. If you are playing as Soviets, remember that they can do the same with you with the Lightning Storm.

  • The easiest way of defeating the CPU under the Brutal difficulty setting is to get a Spy into one of their Refineries. You will get between 15,000 to 80,000 in cash. This allows you to build a lot of tanks and other units, which should ensure victory.

  • When playing against more than one Brutal enemy, first build defenses and then Engineers. For example, if the enemy is the opposite (you are the Soviets and they are the Allies), capture the Construction Yard after the rest of the base is destroyed by Prism Tanks. Re-pack the MCV and bring it to your base, or just build anywhere. You can now be Allied and Soviet at the same time.

  • When you are playing on islands with Brutal Soviet enemies, they usually attack you with two or three Kirov Airships. If you build a large air defense system you can destroy airships. Also, if you are playing versus Brutal Allied enemies they will attack you with three or four Harriers.

  • When playing Skirmish mode games with Super Weapons, always build your War Factory a long away from you base. The CPU will always use a Nuclear Bomb or Weather Storm on it.

  • Make four or five well-spaced power plants as soon as you can in Skirmish or Multi-player mode to bring up your power bar on the right-hand side of the screen, then watch it. Garrison your troops into civilian buildings for extra cover while fighting the enemy. When the building starts to break down due to firepower, send in an Engineer to repair it. Engineers are also able to penetrate an enemy base and convert their structures. Create many Tanyas (as the Allies) or Crazy Ivans and Yuris (as the Soviets) in Multi-player games. They are the most versatile and skilled infantry units available for their respective sides.

  • Though it is expensive, build an Ore Purifier to help get more credits out of your mining expeditions.

  • Try making your defense first, then create at least three mine sweepers. Next, make a War Factory and all the other buildings. Make plenty of infantry and hide them in the buildings that are in the way when someone tries to reach your base. By doing this, your infantry will become better then tanks.

  • No matter who you play, try to make eight or more Mirage Tanks and five or more Prism Tanks. Number your Mirage Tanks as "2" and Prism Tanks as "1". Mirage Tanks are effective at destroying tanks and other units, while Prism Tanks can easily destroy enemy buildings. While the Prism Tanks are destroying the your enemy's buildings, the Mirage Tanks will be protecting them from any enemy attacks. While attacking, also bring some IFVs in case you are attack by Rocketeers.

  • Make at least fifteen (Elite or not) Rocketeers, then move them near (but not too close) to the enemy base. Get a Spy and infiltrate the enemy's power plant. First destroy any anti-air attack units, then destroy all power plants. The enemy will now be low powered. Then, destroy the Construction Yard and all that remains of your enemy.

  • Create your base (Power Plant, Ore Refinery, Barracks and War Factory), then make five Engineers and one Transport Helicopter. Put the Engineers in the helicopter and take them to the enemy base. Take over the Construction Yard with one of the engineers. Note: The extra Engineers are to replace him if he dies. Then, take the Construction Yard to your base (not with the Transport Helicopter). Place the Construction Yard somewhere and you will have the enemy technologies and it will be easier to win.

Chronosphere Glitch

This glitch allows any Allied player who has the Chronosphere to use it repeatedly after the first charge:

  • 1. Make a Chrono Legionnaire and a Chronosphere.

  • 2. Once the Chronosphere is ready, activate Way-Point-Mode. Now, command the Chrono Legionnaire to freeze your Chronosphere, but don't commence the waypoint process yet.

  • 3. Select a group of units to be teleported with the Chronospehre, but don't teleport them yet; only select them.

  • 4. Now, after having your group of units selected and ready to teleport, activate your way-point-path. Your Chronosphere will now become frozen in time. (This is a good thing for the sake of the glitch)

  • 5. Right after you freeze your Chronosphere select where you'd like to tele your units. Despite the fact that the Chronosphere is frozen, you will still be able to teleport the already selected group of units.

  • 6. As soon as you have teleported your units with the frozen Chronosphere move your Chrono Legionnaire, unfreezing the building. As soon as the building unfreezes it will say "Chronospehre ready!"

Easy money hints

  • As the Allies, build a spy and get it near the enemy Ore Refinery. If you are low on money send the spy into it and you will get the last 10,000.

  • Have an Allied barrack, a Soviet cloning va,t and about 1,000 Credits. Train Spies or Tanyas ($1000 each). Sell them at Cloning Vats for the following amounts.

1 Spy for $900
1 Tanya for $900
1 Veteran Tanya for $1000 (by entering Spies to enemy's Barrack)

  • With Cloning Vats, when you train one Spy, you instead get two Spies. For example, using a Spy and Tanya , 900 Credits + 900 Credits = 1,800 Credits, which after your 1000 Credits investment is a 800 Credits profit for each Spy or Tanya you trained. With a Veteran Tanya, the profit is 1,000 Credits. Note: This trick is useful for every Allied unit (GIs, etc.). They will be sold at high price (almost as much as they cost).

Make two to three Ore Refineries, a Barracks and a War Factory, then build over ten GIs (Conscripts if Soviet), five Grizzly Tanks (Rhinos if Soviets), and one Engineer, and one IFV. Place the engineer into the IFV and keep him at your base. Group the Grizzly Tanks and GIs together and send them into the enemy base early in the mission. Have the group of units take out the base's defenses and then send the "Engineer IFV" into the now unprotected enemy base. Have the GIs deployed and guarding outside the enemy's Barracks and have your tanks guarding outside the enemy's War Factory to prevent an enemy attack on the IFV. By this time you should have built good base defenses at your own base. Have the IFV deploy outside the enemy's Construction Yard and get your engineer in there. Move your new Construction Yard back to your own base. You can now build along both tech trees. Note: Send more units to help the Construction Yard get back to your base safely. This way, the new units will protect the new Construction Yard from being attacked from straggling enemy units.

Self-infiltrate

Play as the Allies and build your base as usual. Build an Ore Refinery, a Barracks, and a Battle Lab, then build a Engineer and a Spy. Damage one of your own buildings by selecting a unit and holding CTRL. While still holding CTRL, use the unit to attack your Battle Lab, Refinery, or Barracks. Do not destroy the building -- just damage it. After that, select your Spy and Engineer. Enter waypoint mode and put one waypoint anywhere, and set the second way point is on the damaged Refinery, Barracks or Battle Lab. Exit way point mode and wait. If done correctly, once the pair reach the building, the "New technology acquired" message will appear.

Build no defenses

When playing as Great Britain and you have locked yourself on an island (destroyed all bridges going to it), do the following. Build an IFV. Train a sniper. Put the sniper into the IFV. Roll the "Snipe IFV" to the center of the bridge. Repeat this as many times as needed. Note: You cannot move tanks and troops to other islands.

Defending bases

  • This base defense requires quite a lot of money. Start with four Tesla Coils or Prism Towers placed side by side. Next, place four Flak Cannons or IFV Rockets behind them. Finally, make a perimeter around all eight items with Sentry Guns or Pillboxes.

  • In Skirmish mode make sure you have "MCV Repacks" on. Build your power sources, then click on your Mobile Construction Yard. Click anywhere on the map. When your MCV can deploy, do so and then build a power source. Next build barracks, then War Factory and continue to play. Build the rest of your buildings. When you have super weapons and the enemy also has one, he will usually attack your War Factory first. This gives you a chance to destroy his Mobile Construction Yard while his building a super weapon attack.

  • In Multi-player mode, use your Chrono Legionnaire to protect your structures. Have him attack your own building CTRL + CLICK to protect against an enemy airstrike. Stop him before your structure is gone. Also, if you are the Soviet side in a Skirmish game, make Yuris. Once you can capture IFVs, load a Crazy Ivan and the unit becomes something similar to a Demolition Truck.

  • When building a War Factory, place it away from your base. If you have an Iron Curtain when the enemy attacks with a nuke or Weather Storm, use the Iron Curtain on your War Factory.

  • The following is a base defense for urban maps. Try building as many GIs or Conscripts and garrison all the buildings near your base. This will stop your enemy from entering your base.

Destroying bases

When destroying bases, usually a person would aim for all defensive structures to "paralyze" their defense. However, instead of aiming for defenses, use some air units (for example, Rocketeers or Harriers) or some burst damage tanks (for example, Prism Tanks or Apocalypses) to take out almost all their Power Plants, Nuclear Reactors (if playing campaign), or Tesla Reactors. You must be fast though because both CPU and human opponents do not leave their power down for long. The best way to do it would be to gather all your units at a reasonable distance from the enemy's base. Take out their power with those units, then attack the base, leaving all defensive structures except Pillboxes and Sentry Guns (because they do not work off power) for last. Destroy War Factories and Barracks first. Try to avoid destroying Ore Refineries because War Miners take too much to kill (if the base is Soviet). Also, miners take up time that the CPU remakes power. Destroy or capture the Construction Yard afterwards, then set out to destroy their Radar System(s), Battle Labs, Ore Refineries and finally power consuming defensive structures. This tactic may seem difficult against France but the work added in taking out their power will be very useful because you will not have five cannons killing five men on each shot from each cannon. Note: This tactic has seemed most useful against brutal enemies and multi-player against France because they rely mostly on their defensive structures and not on their men, considering brutal enemies also attack early in the game.

Rambo Attack

Send a spy into an allied Control center when playing as the Allies, then build one or two Chrono Commandos. Find an enemy whose base is not well defended and send you Chrono Commandos behind it, but not too far. Once they fully reappear, order them to destroy anything and everything that is not too close to a Sentry Gun, Pillbox, Tesla Coil, Prism Tower, or unit that endangers them. If you want to destroy near a defensive structure or a vehicle, order some Harriers to destroy the defenders.

Easy technology hints

  • Make a Battle Lab, then shoot at it until it catches on fire. Hire an Engineer and a Spy. Put the Engineer close to the lab and the Spy further away. Select both people and make a waypoint between them, then into the lab. A message will appear stating that your action was canceled, but ignore this. When the Engineer and the Spy go into the lab, it will be fixed. You will have your technology updated without leaving your base.

  • Ally with your desired player. Once allied (preferably with an opponent of the opposite side), have you and your ally build an MCV. Place the MCV near your ally's base and deploy it when they are ready. Take an engineer close to the Construction Yard and cancel the alliance. Take the Construction Yard and re-ally. You will both now have the technology of the opposing side.

Get rid of the Soviet Black Elite Guard around the Kremlin

  • The most frustrating part of any mission in the game is when the enemy stations tanks as guards. To get rid of them, build a Chronosphere. This strategy is most effective against the Black Guard. First, build a Chronosphere, then find a target (in this case a Black Guard tank). Once the Chronoshift is ready, select a vehicle that is stationary. Activate the first part of the Chronoshift, then scroll over to the lake and activate the second part of the Chronoshift over the water. The tank, in this case a Black Guard Apocalypse, will appear in the water and sink into the lake and never return. This reserves your tanks for a future attack.

  • If playing as the Allies on the final mission, there are four 3-Stripe Apocalypse Tanks as the last line of defense. These can easily destroy any attacks from normal troops. Get about four Spies and go to the top right corner. You will find a base with Telsa Defenses. Get a few Harriers to the Nuke Power Station just below and across from that base to put them down. There may be some Dogs; put in a couple Grizzlies to kill them. Put a Spy into the Barracks, War Factory and Soviet Battle Lab. Also, put a Spy into one of their Ore Refineries below to steal many credits. Get a couple Psychic Commandos, another Spy, and Mirage and Prism Tanks outside the last base. Send the Spy into the closest Power Station or Nuclear Power Station and the Telsas will be down. Crush the Red Soviets, but you should find that even your veteran units (due to the Spies going into the War Factories and Barracks) are no match. Get the Psychic Commandos to take them over and help you take out the rest of the forces.

Multiple special units

Use the following trick to get two Tanya. After using the "You and an ally have the same things" type of trick, buy a Cloning Vat and purchase any special unit desired. If you use the special characters from sending a Spy into an enemy Battle Lab, this trick is very helpful in a quick hit and run, or even a rush.
