Stopping sieges with Minitowers as Atreides

The Atreides Minitower unit (huge four-turreted mech) is incredibly powerful. To stop the AI's siege with those Minitowers, get many cheap AA units and an Advanced Carryall unit to pick up the Minitowers, which the AI never escorts. Place them carefully near the AA troops. That will keep the troops from hitting your Advanced Carryall. The Minitower will not be able to fire. This works best for the Ordos. If your Carryall is hit, it will repair itself.

Easy win against the CPU as Harkonnen

Build four or more Harkonnen Devastators and for to eight Advanced Carryalls. You might need to build more then 4 when fist attempting this trick -- for beginners start with eight to twelve. Number the Devastators group "1" and each Carryall a number after that (such as 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). Collect all your Devastators and then Transport them to best location in the enemy's base. If they don't have a weak point, you can attack by way of the front door or make a suicide run for the Construction Yard and Factory. If you take the front door approach, simply keep your team close, and concentrate firepower on one unit at a time. Remember to take out Laser Tanks and missile-type enemies first. You may go full force, but the CPU is stupid and will send all units to attack -- don't worry, they will be slapped down with ease. If you take the suicide approach, just go for the Construction Yard and then the Factory. Better yet, if the Refineries are close to each other, take them both out and the CPU will sell all structures 90% of the time. After that, all you have to deal with is the last of their units.

Enemy invasions defense strategy

During the solo campaigns, each player (Atreides, Ordos and Harkonnen) has one turn to attack. After attacking, the enemies can fight each other, or some can turn to invade your territory. When the battle begins, because you are domestic, you will already have a base and most likely some veteran units for protection. Make a few scouts and send them to find an enemy base. You will see that it is barely deployed, and may not even have a Harvester Station. Set your waypoints from both Infantry Barracks and Vehicle Factory to place near the CPU's base. Try striking it with everything you have at your disposal and render your enemy helpless before his AI manages to make Turrets and Barracks for protection. In case this does not work out, you can simultaneously build Harvester Stations and Turrets to protect your base, and keep your enemy busy as you gather resources to reinforce your constant attacks.

Countering infantry offense as Ordos

An easy way to take out any infantry offense is just a few Mortar infantry. Deploy them at the top of the ramp, out of range of the Kindjal and snipers. They will get a height advantage and will kill the enemy infantry in a couple seconds.

Infantry offense and defense as Ordos

Atreides style Infantry defense can also be done with Ordos. Use Mortars and the Freman Subhouse instead. The Freman warriors have equal range as snipers and can cloak.

How to destroy powerful enemy units

f
The CPU always has something powerful available, and sends at least eight to ten powerful units at a time. It is important to keep the way enemy units get into your base blocked. To do so, either block it with many infantry, a good amount of vehicles, or a decent amount of both. Note: Do not use these units to invade enemy territory; make a certain area where you put those units.

Steal Harvesters as Harkonnen

Get some Advanced Carryalls so that you can steal the enemy's Harvesters. Avoid getting too close to your own forces. If you do, then your own Carryall may be damaged or destroyed as your own units try to kill the Harvester. In this way you can keep them out of the game without alerting the enemy that a unit has been lost (if playing human player). The CPU may or may not make a new one, and in this way you can slow them down. This trick also works for stealing any other unit, however it is dangerous because it will not pick the unit up right away. It takes a couple seconds to become airborne, and while on the ground any weak unit can take a pot shot at you.

Leeches hints

-When you pick up any enemy Tank with an Advanced Carryall, drop it next to Tleixau Leeches in your base. You will get a free Leech without worrying about them dying because your other forces will attack the enemy Tank.

-Leech enemy harvesters, but don't destroy the Harvesters. You will find out where the enemy base is located and, if you are lucky, enemy units will be leeched.

Invulnerability

When you enter the black border in all maps, your unit becomes invisible to the enemy, thus granting you invulnerability. This is a great trick for an Air Drone base camp to destroy any enemy aircraft that come out from a Hangar that is built near this black border. You can also use other units to base camp. For example a Harkonnen Air Defense can destroy enemy structures, forcing them to not build near the black border. To find the border, check around the map and notice the black area that cannot be revealed. You can enter this black border only a short distance.

Sub-House recommendations for multi-player mode

Saradaukar and Fremen - Make as many of their units as possible. Fremen are invisible and hold much firepower. Use them to sneak and attack your opponent's base. Use the Saradaukar to give more firepower to your troops and for anti-air defense.
Guild and Teilaxu - The Guild can transport their NIAB tanks from one point to another. When in massive groups, they can be used to erase buildings in seconds. The Teilaxu have units that infect other units. This will help you to raise your units in numbers.

House recommendations

Every house has traits that work well with certain tactics:

-Atreides are the noble house and thus have good specific units and the ability to fix or heal units wounded in battle.

-The Ordos are sneaky and devious, thus faster and sneakier. Their tanks will regenerate.

-The Harkonnen are brute force and evil, allowing their units to act at full capacity even if wounded.

Creeper tank as Atreides

Build five Engineers and an APC, then put the Engineers into the APC. Park the APC in front of your opponent's base. Once it cloaks, slowly creep it forward and keep it cloaked. Once the APC is deep enough without being seen, unload it and take over five buildings. Sell them to get infantry and money.

Infantry defense as Atreides

House Atreides is the best for defense, with the Machine Gun Tower and the Missile Turret. It is easy to defend with simple infantry. First, find the entrance. When you can, find the main one. Build ten Kindjal Units and ten Snipers. Place five Kindjal and five Snipers on either side of the entrance. Deploy the Kindjal to take out tanks and the snipers to take out infantry.

Building faster

A factory will create a unit in 100% unit-time-build, while two factories will create a unit 150% faster. Three of them will build 175% faster. More factories that that are useless. The same is true for barracks, construction yards, and palaces.

Extra resources

When lacking some cash, send a couple units to search for wrecked vehicles such as Sandcrawlers, Harvesters, and Dune Buggies. Have your units destroy these. Each one you destroy will drop a crate that is worth $2000.

Attacking bases hints

-During an attack on any base, destroy the Construction Yard followed by the Refinery. That will take out their money supply and there units. They cannot rebuild the two buildings because they are co-joined. If you destroy the Construction Yard, the Factory will make a MCV that can rebuild it. If you destroy the Factory first, then the Construction Yard can make another one. However, if they have a hanger, destroy that as well.

-When launching an attack on an enemy base, regardless of your House or what forces you use, destroy (or take over with Engineers) any enemy Turrets. It will make it easy to attack the rest of the base. In your next attack, destroy (or take over) any Construction Yards, MCVs, Factories, or Starports. This way the enemy cannot rebuild the building you destroy. Since you destroy the Starport and Factory, MCVs can no longer be produced. Without MCVs or Construction Yards, no buildings can be built. An additional bonus to this is that no more Tanks can be produced. If you can, after doing these things, you should destroy the Barracks. You should now focus on destroying the rest of the base. As the Harkonnen, you can send Defense Platforms to the enemy base to attack any remaining troops. This seems odd, but works well. With any House, you can take any Tank capable of running over Infantry to destroy the rest of the base.

Emperor Worm strategies

-Build the Construction Yard and Vehicle Factory, then build Robots and Toxic Car. After that, build the Plane Factory then build the Carriers to take the Robot to the Emperor Worm. Beware of cannons and troops.

-When the last mission starts, move the Duplicator in front of the Emperor Worm. Duplicate a couple Sonic Tanks, then move the Sonic Tanks away from the Duplicator. Otherwise, they will be hit by the Super-canon. Now take position before attacking the Emperor Worm. Do not let the tanks cluster together because of the Super-canon.

Sniper offense as Atreides

Create six snipers. If there are barrels around the buildings of the base, that is all you will need. If not, add six Mongooses and eight Bikes. Add stronger units as the difficulty goes up. This should work when there are two entrances. Bring the snipers around the rear and start picking off infantry or barrels]. All their units should come after the snipers. After that, fly the Bikes into the middle of the base to take out the defenses and the units from behind. Finally have the Mongooses destroy the base.

All House units as Harkonnen

Capture a Construction Yard of a different House, then make sure you have a Advanced Carryall near and select the Construction Yard. Select somewhere else on the map. The Construction Yard will undeploy and turn back into an MCV. At this point you can grab it with the Advanced Carryall and take it back to your base, where you can then redeploy it and build the entire army of your enemy. In this manner you can have every unit (except SubHouse) in one game. With this flexibility you can have the best army.

Overwhelming force as Ix Sub-House

-With any House and the Ix Subhouse, build a Duplicator and one of your strongest units (for Ordos the Deviator, Harkonnan the Devastator, and Atredies the Sonic Tank). Build two Advanced Carryalls and drop them near a base on rock. Deploy the Duplicator, then duplicate the unit you brought with it and send those units in and not the actual one. You will get a free supply of strong units that are built in seconds.

-Alternatively, use on the Ordos is to duplicate the enemies laser tanks. The duplicate laser tank will shoot the shields, refracting and blowing both of them up. The laser tank is also nice to mass produce because it is fast and will move away so that you can make more.

Answer from alexninja2010

Only way is to try it while using compatibility mode. I'm running this particular game right now so I know this one works on Vista.
