Tesla Coil's defense

An excellent defense plan for the Soviets is to build a layer of concrete wall (or even two layers) and have it wrap around a Tesla Coil(s), SAM Site(s) and a few Rocket Launchers. Also place a few V2 Rockets behind it as well.

Transport soldiers with Chronosphere

Take a civilian and make it force fire on the soldier that you want to transport. When the soldier lies down, take the Chronosphere and zip it while avoiding the civilians bullets. This works because the armor gets higher when the soldier lies down. Use this to send a spy or a thief into the enemy base.

Soviets hints

  • Make a Shipyard and then a Tech Center. Start making Cruisers until you have five to ten of them. Then, start bombarding your enemies from the coasts.

  • While playing the Allies against the Soviets in a skirmish game, use airplanes to destroy the Flamethrower Cannons. Attack the base with 20 or more soldiers, 2 medics, and at least 7 strong vehicles. When they attack you, dominate them with your vehicles. Then send the airplanes to destroy their Construction Yard. After a few shots, it should be destroyed and the enemies will no longer be able to build things.

Unlock everything

When starting a skirmish game, build everything you can see on the right-side menu to be able to build new things. Keep doing this until everything is unlocked. But make sure you build an Ore Refinery first, so you can get money easily.

Build far away

Build a line of ore silos to however far away as desired. Build what you want next to the last silo. Therefore, MCVs are not needed as much.

Building anywhere

Either be Team America and have paratroopers, or capture an air force base and get Paradrop. If you have an air force base, it will work with Soviets and Allies. Once you have one of these, wait until you can drop your troops. Do not drop them yet. Instead, construct the building you wish to place. Once it is done, click on the building you want to place while keeping your mouse pointer on the menu. Go to the Paradrop icon (you can change menu items while doing this). Click the Paradrop icon. Once you have done this, move your pointer up to the little mini-map above the menu. Your pointer should change to the "drop troops" pointer. Click the mini map on the position where you want your building. It takes some practice to get used to where the pointer is aimed at. It helps if you have the entire map revealed. However, it should still work in the shrouded area; you will just not be able to see where it is going. If it does not work the first time (for example, you tried to place it in water), right click to cancel and try again.

Playing as Tanya

If you are currently playing as the Allies on the mission to destroy all the bridges with Tanya, first head down and destroy the Soviet soldiers. A medic will soon help you out. If you wish to eliminate a bridge, let the medic go first in the other side of the bridge far away from it. After that, set your target on the bridge and it will explode. This way, when Tanya gets hurt, the medic will still be alive and can cure you easily. Do this every time in this case.

Easy wins in skirmish mode

  • Create about a dozen or more Allied Cruisers and send them into the shores of the enemy. Have them destroy Construction Yards (to stop them from making new buildings), Barracks (to stop them from making infantry), Sub Pens or Naval Yards (to stop them from making subs or boats.), defenses (Tesla Coils, Turrets, etc.), and finally War Factories (so they cannot make Tanks, etc.). After that, leave them to destroy the rest or send in ground units. To make this even easier, destroy their Helipads and Landing Strips. Note: This can also be done with the Soviet Missile Subs.

  • As the Soviets, make seven or eight airstrips. Then, build MiGs for them. Attack with these MiGs in a group at the enemy base. Target their Construction Yard first, then their War Factory followed by their Barracks. Then, sell all your unneeded buildings and launch an all out attack. Note: The War Factory will take two strikes.

  • Make a map and have a river run through the middle. Make sure the river is three squares wide. Then, put about three squares of ore on one side and a lot of ore and mostly gems on the other side. Next, add whatever objects desired and play the map. Make sure you start on the right side with a lot of ore and gems and build. You can make a lot of things while the CPU can barely make anything. Use the river for sneak attacks with a lot of transports.

  • Start a Skirmish with at least four bots and set it to easy with no starting credits and no starting units. When the game starts, deploy your MCV then sell it. You should get three or four Infantry and an Enginee. If this did not happen, restart and try again. Use the Infantry to attack an enemy base until the health bar turns red. After that, send the Engineer in to take control of it and use the credits from your last Construction Yard to build a Power Plant and Barracks. Train an Engineer and take over another Construction Yard by using the same technique. Sell the new Construction Yard and make another Engineer. Take over and sell one more Construction Yard and you should have enough credits to make an Ore Refinery. You will then have constant cash flow and none of the CPU players will attack you or build anything.

How to destroy enemy ore trucks

The Allied mine layer is possibly the best weapon against enemy ore trucks. First, determine where the enemy ore trucks are passing. They usually stick to the sides of trees, shores and ridges. Bring your mine layers to the proper location and lay a lot of mines onto the exact path of the truck. Get out once the mines have been laid. Be careful not to let the mine layers get claimed by enemy forces.

Mine Layer defense

When fighting on a island and enemy transports keep landing, get your Mine Layers and set them right on the beach as far to the water as possible. The transports will be stuck there, and will not be able to open. Note: If the mines blocking them explode, they will release their contents.

Spying hints

  • Even though you think your spy is safe because dogs are present, tanks are still dangerous. They will not shoot at your spy, but will instead try to crush him.

  • If you have sent a spy to go to the enemy base, never get close to the attack dogs. They will kill you if you do so.

Defeating Allies hints

  • While playing the Soviets and attacking an enemy base with many tanks and the base has cannons, flamethrowers etc. make at least five riflemen and send them in before your main attack. The enemies defense will focus their fire on the infantry and not your tanks.

  • As the Soviets, build a Missile Silo and an Iron Curtain. When both the Atom Bomb and the Iron Curtain are charged, send a tank into the enemy base. When all of their troops come out to attack it, use the Iron Curtain on it to give the tank invincibility. When the enemies gather around the tank, fire the Atom Bomb directly on top of it. If timed correctly, the missile will hit when the tank still has the effect of the Iron Curtain. This will destroy everything around the tank, but leave the tank unharmed and allow you to infiltrate the enemy base.

Easy completion of Soviet mission 3

Get the Grenadiers to blow up the church by clicking to toss the grenade near them. When they are about to throw, click on the church. They will throw long to the church. Keep doing this until the church explodes, then blow up the bunker (pillbox) or barrels. The spy will appear on the road to the south where you found your squad. Kill him to complete the mission.

Island Hoppers level

As the Soviets in the skirmish level "Island Hoppers", put one or two Tesla Coils at the sides of the entrances of the islands. There are three entrances, but only one is generally used. If you get a wall up between these Tesla Coils, then it will be very difficult for the enemy to penetrate your defenses. Also, building up a strong air force is good. Launching constant air raids is a quick and easy way to pummel your opponent into submission.

Low power strategy

When you have low power, your defense (Turret, Flame Tower, Pillbox, etc.) can still function. However, structures such as Tesla Coils, AA Guns, and Radar Domes will go offline. Your radar will not appear until the power is back to normal. However, your other structures will still build or repair depending on how much power is available to you; the less power, the slower the construction.

Killing multiple grenadiers/flamethrowers

  • When attacked by several flamethrowers or grenadiers, just kill a few of them to set off a chain reaction that will kill the rest.

  • If you many grenadiers in an enemy base, charge a Chronoshift and teleport one of your own Grenadiers by them. They will explode along with your grenadier.

Flamethrower warning

While using the infantry rush strategy, do not include flamethrowers into the mix. They will toastboth you and the enemy. You should, however, have a Tanya or two in the back of the line to assist if anything goes very wrong.

Personnel cannot be Chronoshifted

Send a M.A.D. tank to your enemy's base with the Iron Curtain over it, then activate the M.A.D. tank, and as soon as the curtain stops, it will blow up instantly. By doing this it will not get blow up as soon as it gets attacked. The enemy never builds
a Navy or sends Chronotanks.

Easy defense as Allies

When playing as any Allied team on a skirmish game, create many Rifle Soldiers. Put at least eight of them in one path to block the enemy and the others in another. Put four tanks at each path. When the enemy attacks, you can block them away from the base and defeat them. Also, get two medics on each path.

Scare enemy base

Make about ten Tanya soldiers and about thirty Rocket Soldiers, then make an Atom Bomb and a couple planes or choppers. Send your Rocket Soldiers down near the enemy base. Send your Tanya Soldiers near the Rocket Soldiers for back up. While the Rocket Soldiers attack the base, send your Tanyas in to attack one building after another. When the Tanyas die, attack with an Atom Bomb and follow that with some planes or choppers. After this attack, the remaining enemies will not attack too much. They will use only their weakest men and remain at their bases ruins, allowing you to repeat this tactic.

Air Force vs. Submarines

A great recommendation is to use air units to destroy subs since they have no air defense. If you do not want your air units to go past an enemy's base, you can direct them a path that avoids an enemy base, even if it displays a "no entry" cursor.

Less power consumption

It is possible for both Allies and Soviets to build high-tech units and structures without the presence of a tech center. Simply build a tech center, then sell it. High tech units/structures can still be built. However, this is not a good idea for the Allies because the GPS Satellite would not be available.

Suicide attacks

If you cannot see your enemy's entire base, but ore trucks are plowing through your base, this is usually an indicator of possibly two. The first is that the enemies are defeated, and a mass of infantry will soon follow this truck in. The second is that the enemy is out of ore, in which case, block it in somehow, then make a concrete wall around it to trap it. If you destroy it, they may launch an all-out attack on you.

Blackhole Lightning storm (Vortex) on the ground

  • Make a Chronoshere and use it many times. If you have done it enough times, you will see a circle that appears as if it is sucking up the ground. Stay far away from it, as it shoots out powerful lightning bolts.

  • Note: This is a Vortex. Einstein warns that this may happen if the Chronosphere is used. You can edit the rules.ini file to change the chances of a Vortex occuring.

  • Use the Chronoshift on the enemy's base only. Repeatedly use it by moving a few feet away from where you started. The Vortex will start in your opponent's base.

Rule the war

Design your own map with the map editor, then save it and exit. Go to "Skirmish" on Red Alert and select your settings. First, pick the map name that you created (it will be at the bottom), then set it on "Easy" and "Al players-8". To make sure you will win, place (with the map editor) a lot of gold where your future base will be located. After that, put ridges around it so no one can get to your base. Build it close to a shore so in case of emergency you will have an "exit". To make sure you will get the correct starting location on the map you have to put little flags when designing your map. They will be located at the bottom with a flag. Finally, all you have to do is build your base (and plenty of tanks).

Fire anywhere

With Tanya (like grenadiers) it is possible to fire anywhere on the map. Ask Tanya to force fire somewhere then just as she is about to fire another round, aim for an enemy. It is very tricky but it is easier to do if the game speed is set to slow.

Easy kill with Chronoshpere

Chronoshift a rifleman at the farthest place where the enemy can reach. Many of their units should go to attack that rifleman. When they kill the rifleman, the enemy's units should stay where the rifleman was located. Send a team of eight to ten Apaches over to attack the Power Plants. Repeat this process as needed.
