    Introduction
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    This is the first guide up on Gamefaqs for CNC3: Kane's Wrath, and all of the 
    strategies were tested on Hard Difficulty, so they should work no matter what 
    difficulty you play on, though they might seem very conservative on Easy 
    Difficulty. For every mission I'll have the new units, the briefing, the intel
    items you can get in the mission and how, the objectives, and, of course, the
    walkthrough.
    
    If you wish to send me any strategies or point out any errors in my guide,
    send an email to cnckwguide AT hotmail DOT com. One thing I'm sure there will
    be errors in is the Intelligence Database, as I don't have the official guide
    so knowing what the conditions are for some intel items is pure guesswork.

    Mission 1: Rio Insurrection [M1]
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    The slums of Rio seethe with anger, anger against GDI. It would take but a
    single act to spur the disenfranchsied masses into open insurrection.
    
    An act you must perform.
    
    Tear down GDI's authoritarian edifices, the symbols of their autocracy. Seize
    the radio stations and flood the airwaves with the Prophet's message.
    
    Incite rebellion.
    
    Rio will burn, and in the flames, Kane's army shall be reborn.
    
    =========
    New Units
    =========
    
    Militant
    Cost: 200
    Build Time: 2
    
    Description: A slow unit with very low fire power. Can take out enemy infantry 
    in numbers, and functions well as a meat shield.
    
    Militant Rocket Squad
    Cost: 400
    Build Time: 4
    
    Description: A militant with an RPG instead of a machine gun. Can take out 
    enemy tanks, buildings, and aircraft in numbers. Extremely vunerable to enemy 
    infantry.
    
    Attack Bike
    Cost: 600
    Build Time: 6
    
    Description: A very fast unit with low health and low damage. Can kill light 
    vehicles and aircraft without trouble much trouble, though tanks and heavy 
    infantry can kill one of these in two or three hits.
    
    Raider Buggey
    Cost: 400
    Build Time: 4
    
    Description: Your light anti-infantry vehicle. Fast and cheap with a decent 
    amount of health and a weak machine gun, this unit is useless alone but when 
    massed is very powerful against other T1 units (except for tanks).

    Primary Objectives:
    
    1. Destroy GDI Administration Centers.
    2. Destroy Splinter Faction Construction Yard.
    
    Bonus Objectives:
    
    1. Capture GDI Radio Stations.
    2. Defend Captured Radio Stations.
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    This mission is pretty easy and is almost impossible to fail. Start off by 
    building a crane and an emissary from your Con Yard and queue up a harvester, 
    a raider buggy, and four attack bikes. When your emissary is finished, start 
    building another one then send it and your harvester to the southeast. Start 
    building two refineries and set up your emissary on the bottom tibierium field.
    
    Once you place your refineries, a few APCs will show up. Have your buggies 
    act as a meat shield while your six attack bikes destroy the APCs. Set up 
    your emissary on the eastern tibierum field, and build three refineries on 
    each as well as another harvester.
    
    When your economy is set up, you can begin building your army. Build two war 
    factories and one barrack, then spam Raider Buggies and Militant Rocket Squads. 
    Send them around the map destroying the GDI Administration centers, but save 
    the one in the west for now. Build four engineers and send them into the 
    radio stations. Pomyu informed me that you only need to have one surviving
    radio station in order to fulfill the bonus objectives, basically meaning that
    you don't have to defend them if you rush the Construction Yard, which is
    what we are doing. Cancel your queues, gather your rocket troops in 
    the northwest, and send only your raider buggies to take out the GDI
    Administration Center.
    
    As soon as it is destroyed, the map will expand and you'll be told that you 
    have to take out a splinter faction. Send all of your rocket troops and raider 
    buggies to the northwest and destroy the stealth generators there. Activate 
    Power Signature Scan and focus on the Construction Yard.
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    Mission 2: What is Rightfully Ours [M2]
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    Nod is resurgent, but remains weak in the face of GDI's vast technological
    superiority. The Brotherhood Archives were all but destroyed in the aftermath 
    of the Second Tiberium War, leaving Kane without access to his centuries of
    research.
    
    Paradoxically, our friends at GDI have provided a most convenient solution.
    An exact duplicate of our stealth databank, origin unknown, is under analysis
    at a covert GDI research Facility on the Australian coast.
    
    Reclaim what is ours.
    
    =========
    New Units
    =========
    
    Fanatics
    Cost: 800
    Build Time: 8
    
    Description: These units are almost useless without the Tiberium Infusion 
    upgrade, and even with it they don't do much. They run at your enemy and 
    explode. I don't use these much.
    
    Scorpion Tank
    Cost: 800
    Build Time: 8
    
    Description: Your average tier one tank. Has a good amount of health, is 
    pretty fast, and deals okay damage. When upgraded with Dozer Blades can run 
    over all infantry. Very good when spammed. 
    
    Venom
    Cost: 900
    Build Time: 9
    
    Description: Think of this as a raider buggy with a rotor with a little less 
    health. That's pretty much what this unit is. Deals low damage against 
    vehicles and buildings, but kills infantry quickly.

    9. GDI Behemoth
    
    At the end of the mission:
    10. Kane - Awakening
    
    
    ==========
    Objectives
    ==========
    
    Primary Objectives:
    1. Capture Covert GDI Research Laboratory.
    2. Hold laboratory until Upload completes.
    
    Bonus Objectives:
    1. GDI Research Facility takes less than 50% damage.
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    Immediately queue up four Saboteurs and send them to the four Tiberium spikes 
    located across the map. Send your militant and one rocket troop to the hill 
    northwest of your base and one rocket troop a little north of your base to 
    scout. Build a Crane and place it towards your tiberium field, then begin 
    building a Refinery and a War Factory. When the War factory finishes, build 
    two harvesters from it. Build another refinery. Start building another War 
    Factory and tech to an Air Tower with your Crane. Upgrade Dozer Blades and 
    being spamming Scorpion Tanks and 10 venoms.
    
    You probably won't have two Scorpion Tanks made by the time you get a cutscene
    with a GDI guy insulting you. When the cut scene finishes, an enemy force 
    will attack you. It seems like the force is random, and can come from north, 
    west, or either ramp on the hill. Generally there'll be some infantry, titans, 
    and wolverines with threeish hammerheads. Since you sent out your 
    militant+rocket troops to scout, you should see it coming with ample time. 
    Use a mine drop in front of the ground army (if there is one) to kill the 
    infantry and severely weaken the titans and use your venoms to kill the 
    hammerheads. Send Scorpions to mop up the walkers.
    
    Now that that's taken care of, pack up your MCV and set it up west of your 
    base while building a refinery with your Crane. The enemy will probably send a 
    few more titans and infantry at you, but if you continue to use the Mine Drop 
    power they won't cause problems. Place three refineries at that tiberium 
    field, and then send your scorpions to take out the base north of yours. 
    Destroy the war factories first, then the barracks. I suggest putting your
    Scorpions in the little pocket to the east of the two War Factories right
    by the border of the map so you can safely focus on the War Factories.
    It'll probably take two waves, but once the base is destroyed the mission is 
    all but finished.
    
    Build another War Factory and send your MCV to the two tibierum fields in the 
    east. Set up some refineries and steam roll the GDI base surrounding the GDI 
    Research Lab. Capture it and then you'll have to defend it for four minutes. 
    There is  a little hole on the northern border of the map with two tiberium 
    spikes inside of it. Put all of your tanks immediately left of it, as that is 
    the spawn point for the ground units. The spawn point for the aerial units is
    on the western border where the wall of the GDI base meets the black. Place
    your venoms there. Wait four minutes, and you've won.

    Mission 3: Persuade Him... [M3]
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    The Brotherhood continues to grow and prosper, but the Prophet cannot risk
    revealing his existence lest he draw GDI's unwanted attention.
    
    A figurehead must be found to rule in his stead.
    
    Kane, in his infinite wisdom, has decreed the renegade heretic Brother Marcion
    to be the most fitting candidate. There is but one problem with this
    initiative - the devout Marcion considers Kane to be a heretic himself.
    
    Convince the good Brother otherwise.
    
    =========
    New Units
    =========
    
    Beam Cannon
    Cost: 1000
    Build Time: 10
    
    Description: These units become exponentially more powerful the more of them
    there are. Alone they take ages to destroy anything, but in groups of 10, they
    can destroy even Construction Yards in a few seconds. Still, they are very
    weak. You can put a Cloaking Field on these, but in the campaign there are a
    lot of stealth detecting units. Overall, not very useful.
    
    Stealth Tank
    Cost: 1800
    Build Time: 18
    
    Description: Automatically stealthed with high damage and the ability to attack
    air with Nod's signature speed, these units are powerful. the main problem
    with them is that their anti-infantry is lacking, and since there are quite
    a lot of infantry in this mission, well...

    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    Build a crane and send an emissary to the blue tiberium field immediately
    northwest of your base. Build three refineries at the tiberium field at your
    base and two at the blue tiberium field. Build a War Factory and make two 
    harvesters for the green field and one for the blue. Get an operations center
    and a tech center. Upgrade Dozer Blades and Laser Capacitors, then make
    three more war factories. Make as many Scorpion Tanks as your economy allows.
    
    Send a stealth tank around and activate all the transmitters. If a transmitter
    is activated once, it can't be activated again, and the enemy forces might run
    into enemy patrols, meaning your army won't have to deal with them later. Once
    the transmitters are all activated, airlift four Saboteurs into the southwest
    corner of the map to capture the tiberium spikes.
    
    Send your tanks to the northeast corner of the map. There's a heavily defended
    base here, and it creates most of the patrols that go around. Kill the turrets,
    run over the infantry, and take out the barracks and War Factory. After this 
    base is destroyed, the mission is easy. 
    
    Take out the transmitters and patrols with your remaining troops, then send 
    emissaries to the blue tiberium field in the middle of the map and the blue 
    tiberium field in the base you just took out. Make more war factories and 
    tanks, then flood the northeast base. Destroy the statues, ignore the 
    buildings, and focus on the Stronghold, as it has very little health. When
    you destroy the Stronghold, a small convoy will pop out. Retreat your tanks
    and destroy the convoy, then move the transport to the evacuation point.
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    Mission 4: A Grand Gesture... [M4]
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    With Marcion returned to the fold, Nod approaches resurrection. All Kane
    requires now is a sign, an act, a message to the faithful that the Brotherhood
    has returned.
    
    In central Australia, a GDI research team struggles to harness the raw,
    untamed power of liquid Tiberium. Should their experiments be destabilized,
    the results would be quite...catastrophic.
    
    Soon, all the world shall bear witness to Nod's violent rebirth.
    
    =========
    New Units
    =========
    
    Black Hand
    Cost: 800
    Build Time: 8
    
    Description: This infantry unit has low range and is slow, but deals very high
    damage to enemy infantry and structures and has an insane amount of health.
    
    Purifier
    Cost: 3000
    Build Time: 30
    
    Description: This is one of the most powerful units in the game. It has a lot
    of health and its flame thrower deals an incredible amount of damage. It's
    better to run into the enemy so that they're in range of the flame thrower
    and so that you can crush them than it is to stand and fire with the laser.
    
    Mantis
    Cost: 1200
    Build Time: 12
    
    Description: By far one of the most powerful anti-air units in the game. With
    the tiberium core missiles upgrade, a few of these will keep your army
    protected from all but fifty Planetary Assault Carriers.

    1. Destroy GDI Liquid Tiberium Research Lab.
    
    Bonus Objectives:
    1. Knock out Research Complex Power Station.
    2. Capture Purifier Husks.
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    You have no time to waste in this one. Build a Crane, then a Barracks and a
    Refinery. Queue up seven Saboteurs and set a way point to the tiberium spikes
    north of your base. Capture the five Purifiers and send them back as you
    capture them, and get the spikes last. Build another refinery and a war
    factory to repair your Purifiers. Build a Shredder Turret if you need to.
    Get a Secret Shrine and an Operation Center for the Purifying Flame upgrade
    and powerful anti-air units. Set up two SAM Turrets and get two Mantises, as 
    the enemy will send fleets of Orcas at you.
    
    You'll have to fight for a minute or two, repairing your Purifiers and
    recapturing them with Saboteurs. Once the enemy stops sending so many titans
    and wolverines and infantry at you, expand with an emissary to the tiberium
    field north of your base and build a War factory there to repair the defending
    Purifier. Build a barracks at your expansion so you can train Saboteurs close
    to the purifier husks. Take those over and base crawl to the green tiberium
    field.
    
    With the extra money, upgrade Dozer Blades and begin spamming Scorpion Tanks.
    Once you have a few you can send them out to guard the remaining group of
    Purifier husks so your engineers can safely take them. Repair the purifiers, 
    thensend them and your army of scorpion tanks to destroy the power plants, 
    then finally swarm the base.

    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    While you slumbered, Nod has grown and evolved, assuming control of the
    planet's newly established yellow zones while remaining dormant in the eyes
    of our enemies. 
    
    All the while, GDI has grown complacent, lazy, their dependence on the global 
    Ion Cannon network rednering them far weaker than the council could possibly
    imagine.
    
    Now is the time to act.
    
    We must raid GDI's Johannesburg research facility, for there we shall find
    the plans for Ion Cannon network - and the means to its undoing.

    instantly. The only problem is that she doesn't have much health.
    
    Shadow Teams
    Cost: 800
    Build Time: 8
    
    Description: Like the Commando, kills infantry very quickly. The satchel
    charge can destroy power plants, barracks, and cranes in twos.
    
    Reckoner
    Cost: 900
    Build Time: 9
    
    Description: Weak transport that can hold two troops. When deployed, gains
    health, carries an extra troop, unts can shoot out of it, and can't move.

    1. Destroy GDI Network Communications Center
    2. Destroy GDI Ion Cannon Uplink
    3. Capture the Network Research Centers before the Ion Cannon re-aligns.
    
    Bonus Objectives:
    1. Capture Network Research Centers 2 minutes prior to Ion Cannon re-alignment
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    Send your starting units east and kill the rifleman patrol. Run in and let
    your commando take out everything. Have your shadow teams fly over and plant
    a charge on one of the power plants, then have them fly out. Send in your
    Commando and, again, take out everything, save the Ion Cannon Control Center.
    Fly in your Shadow Teams and, one by one, plant a charge on the same section
    of the bridge to destroy it. Wait until the cool down on the explosives is
    almost up, then fly them up again. Destroy the Ion Cannon Control Center with
    your Commando. This is a good time to save.
    
    When the map expands, there are a few things you have to do. First, send your
    Commando and Reckoners northwest to the bridge with the Watchtowers and
    Barracks. Deploy your Reckoners and let your Commando take out infantry.
    Use the Reckoners to destroy the Barracks and Watchtower, then to hold the
    bridge. While this is happening, fly your Shadow Teams east of the Ion Cannon
    Uplink and destroy the bridge north of the eastern reasearch center to cut 
    off enemy reinforcements there. There are two rigs gaurding this research
    center, and it takes three satchel charges to take one down.
    
    Build a crane and set up your base, with three refineries, three war
    factories, and a barracks. Have your shadow teams take out the rigs and send
    a Saboteur to take the research center. Send your MCV east so you can build
    refineries by the other tiberium field. Make three more Saboteurs and put them
    in two Reckoners, then spam Scorpion Tanks with Dozer Blades. Once you have
    about 40 Scorpion Tanks and 10 Raider Buggies, go out and capture the three
    remaining Control Centers.

    The Prophet has the Space Station Philadelphia - and the Ion Cannon Network

    GDI council.
    
    There is one council member, however, who must survive - Redmond Boyle, GDI's
    craven treasurer. As strange as it sounds, this incompetent politician is
    essential to Kane's plan. He must live, so he may become the GDI
    president...and fall right into the Prophet's trap.
    
    We have dispatched an infiltration team to the GDI Treasury. Destroy it and

    Keep one shadow team in the forest to the west from where they start off, as
    you only need one for this part and the other can only do bad. Send your
    shadow team north, avoiding the hammerhead that hovers near the entrance.
    As soon as you make it up the hill, take a sharp left into the forest, as
    a group of infantry are coming near. Run to the nearest power plant and place
    your beacon, then place the beacon at the power plant right next to it.
    Run east across the bridge and plant a beacon at that power plant. Plant a
    beacon at the airfield for later and run south across the bridge and place
    a beacon at the last power plant.
    
    Remember that beacon I told you to place at the airfield? Use it now. Use the
    Bombard ability to destroy it, then begin to destroy the base to the right of
    your starting position. Move your Specters close to the cliff wall and watch
    to see the pattern of the Pitbull patrol. Destroy the war factories with the
    Specters and then force fire (ctrl+click) on one of the stopping points of the
    pitbulls to destroy them, using your Stealth Tanks to take out the
    hammerheads. There's another group of pitbulls in here, so do the same thing
    with those. Once they're all dead, send in your shadow team to get the crates.
    The other gold bullions are next to the tiberium spikes near the northern
    border of the map.
    
    Repeat the same thing with the base on the bottom right corner to destroy
    that building. Stealth tanks to take out hammerheads, specters to kill
    pitbulls, then destroy the GDI Communications Center with your specters.
    When that's destroyed, move your army north. Go right up the ramp and destroy
    the two hammerheads with your Stealth Tanks, then attack the last building
    with your Specters and send your Stealth Tanks in to damage it faster.

    Briefing
    ========
    
    Dr. Alphonse Giraud, GDI's leading Liquid Tiberium research scientist, has
    become an impediment. He must disappear before he can enlighten the fool
    Boyle, or Kane's plan will be endangered.
    
    Giraud's facilities are located in Blue Zone 8, in the same Chilean spaceport
    formerly used to staff and maintain the Philadelphia.
    
    The Prophet requires Giraud alive - he believes the good doctor can be
    converted to our cause.
    
    Do not fail him.

    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    You can't waste any time at the start of this mission. Immediately send your
    flame tanks up the hill to the north west and build a barracks. Send the
    flame tanks to the blue tiberium field surrounded by the GDI base and destroy
    it. When your barracks is built, make two Saboteurs, one Confessor CABAL, and
    four Militant Rocket Squads and place the rally point at the tiberium silos.
    
    Build a crane and then an Command Outpost and a war factory, then a refinery 
    when the outpost is finished. Place the war factory and refinery at the
    blue tiberium field (the silos give a large build radius) and build a
    reckoner, a barracks, and two more war factories, then two more refineries
    at your expansion. Put your rocket troops in the reckoner, then make a few
    Shredder Turrets.
    
    Send three engineers to the two tiberium silos and tiberium spike near the
    easter corner of the dock. Spam Scorpion Tanks and Shredder Turrets 
    while you tech up. The enemy will send a small force of infantry and Predator 
    Tanks to your main base. A few Militant Rocket Squads and a shredder turret 
    or two will counter it. When you're teched up, upgrade Charged Particle
    Beams, Purifying Flame and maybe Quad Turrets if you feel you need the extra
    boost. Spam out Purifiers now and place shredder turrets and SAM turrets at
    your expansion to fend off attacks.
    
    As soon as you feel like your expansion is relatively safe, send a Purifier
    to the northwest corner of the map. There's a small GDI base there, and your
    single Purifier should be able to burn it down. With that destroyed, your
    expansion won't be flanked while you take out the main GDI base. Just walk
    your Purifiers in in two groups, put them on agressive mode, and let their
    flame throwers take care of the rest. Send a Purifier into the city to clear
    the garrisons, then capture the Space Port with a Saboteur.
    
    When you capture Doctor Giraud, he'll enter an air transport and you'll have
    to escort it to the battleship. The enemy units fly in at the dock, so move
    your Purifiers there and make some Mantises to counter Hammerheads and Ox
    transports. The ground units come up onto the dock on the ramp in a transport,
    so put your Purifiers there. Mantises should go everywhere else on the dock.
    Wait for the transport to get to the evac point, and you win.

    Mission 8: MARV Rising [M8]
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    ========
    Briefing
    ========
    
    Nod central command has received disturbing reports from the African Red Zone.
    ZOCOM, GDI's elite anti-Tiberium task force, have commenced reclamation
    efforts.
    
    While this is disturbing, even more unsettling is the news that ZOCOM deployed
    a new weapon in their war against the crystal - the Mammoth Armed Reclamation
    Vehicle, or MARV.
    
    This massive Mammoth/Harvester hybrid has already decimated several scout
    patrols, and we as of yet lack an appropriate counter. You must track down
    the MARV, locate the ZOCOM base where it is maintained and learn how it is
    built.
    
    Only then can we construct an appropriate response.

    Bonus Objectives:
    1. Destroy ZOCOM's reinforcement MARV's
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    Begin by upgrading EMP Coils from the Tech Center and Disruption Pods from your
    Air Tower. Assemble a Raider Buggy and a Vertigo Bomber and build a Crane, 
    then two more refineries at each tiberium field. Send your stealth tanks off 
    to the side and wait for the MARV to come. Place a disruption pod on your 
    raider buggies to stealth them and then run them up to the MARV and activate
    EMP Coils while your Stealth Tanks flank the MARV and your Specters+Purifiers
    attack it head on.
    
    Make a Secret Shrine, use the Shadow Team support power, and make two more.
    Fly them over the hills on the western or eastern border into the back of the
    enemy base. Use your satchel charges on the Airfields that are full of Orcas.
    It takes two satchel charges to take out an airfield.
    
    Upgrade Tiberium Core Missiles and Laser Capacitors. Being spamming Militant
    Rocket Squads, Venoms, and Avatars. When you have a decently sized army, send
    them at the enemy base and destroy it. You can use your Shadow Teams to take
    out the rigs; it takes three satchel charges to do so.
    
    Once the base is destroyed, send in a Saboteur and capture the Reclamator
    Hub. It gives you a build radius, so make two War Factories by it so you
    can heal your Avatars. Make a few refineries by the tiberium field and wait
    for the time to expire. The enemy really doesn't send out much during this
    time.
    
    When the time is up, two MARVs will appear. Build a Redeemer Engineering
    Facility and begin constructing a Reddemer. Send your armies back to your base
    to destroy the MARVs, then send your army to one of the enemy Construction
    Yards and just steam roll the base. Garrison two Black Hands in your Redeemer
    and use it to destroy the other base. ezmode.

    5. Reach Evac Point
    
    Bonus Objectives:
    1. Saboteur reaches Evac Point unharmed.
    
    ===========
    Walkthrough
    ===========
    
    Don't try to do a crazy strategy with your commando where you attack and kill
    a single rifleman squad, then stealth, then come back again and kill another
    one, etc. It's unneeded and doesn't work in this mission. That's not to say
    you should attack a group of 10 riflemen, but you should keep a happy medium.
    Destroy the riflemen gaurding the first anti aircraft turret, then destroy
    the power plant and barracks. With the watch towers offline, you can just walk
    up and take out the other two anti air turrets. If your Commando dies during
    this, just restart and try again. 
    
    You'll now get an MCV and a small force. It doesn't really matter what you do
    with this, as your allies will destroy the GDI base with plenty of time to
    spare. Make a crane and three refineries with two extra harvesters, then spam
    flame tanks and throw them at the GDI base. When the GDI base is destroyed,
    you lose all your units and buildings, so throw your units at it.
    
    When the base is destroyed, the mission is extremely linear. Kill the enemy
    militants with your Commando and follow your Commando with your Saboteur. When
    the third laser fence is destroyed, move your Saboteur back and wait with your
    Commando for an enemy patrol to come by. Destroy it, and then make a left
    and take out the power plants. Go back, and take the right path and destroy
    those power plants as well. Destroy the laser fence and then capture the
    building with your Saboteur. Take a healing crate with your Commando, then
    get out of there. Move your Commando in front of your bike again and take
    out enemy infantry before moving your bike in. Once you get out of the base,
    you can just make a straight path to the evac point.

    your Raider Buggy to kill the Southern group of Cultists, and build two
    refineries to place at your main base. Place your Shredder Turret at the
    northern entrance to your base, near the eastern border of the map. Begin
    building a War Factory and an Outpost and basecrawl with your buildings to
    the blue tiberium field.
    
    Make a SAM turret as soon as your Outpost is built. Assemble two Scorpion
    Tanks at your War Factory and then queue up three harvesters. Build three
    Refineries at the blue tiberium field to get your economy up, then get a
    Tech Center. Upgrade Laser Capacitors and being spamming Avatars from your
    War Factory, then make a few Obelisks by the blue tiberium field, with a 
    Shredder for support. Make four Air Towers and fill them with Vertigos, then
    spam Venoms.
    
    Send all of your Vertigos to take out a Drone Ship. When it's destroyed, a
    Heroic Eradicator will appear. Cancel your Venoms and build a Redeemer. Your
    Redeemer can't take out a Heroic Eradicator by itself, so you're going to need
    some support. It takes 32 bombs from a Vertigo to kill one, and you have 16 
    Vertigos. You know what to do.
    
    Once you've bombed the Eradicator to smithereens, send out your Venoms and
    kill the groups of Cultists that are spread out around the map. Destroy the
    last two Drone Ships with your Vertigos. If one lifts off, chase it with your
    Venoms and it'll die within a few seconds.

    Note that this mission is buggy in game version 1.00.
    
    GhOsT_828 says:
    "After you capture the Con Yard, undeploy it, and then simply use the cloaking 
    support power on it. I sent it to the objective point alone, and it wasn't 
    even detected."
    
    We'll definitely use this tip when going through this mission. Make a crane
    and build three harvesters from your War Factory. Build three or four more
    refineries and send your Attack Bikes to the eastern side of the map, by the
    docks. Attack the MCV when it gets close to the docks with them, then retreat.
    Tech up to a Tiberium Chemical Plant and then build two more War Factories and
    use the Tiberium Vein Detonation ability, and then use it again and yet again
    when it recharges. Upgrade Laser Capacitors and Dozer Blades and begin 
    spamming Scorpion tanks. Put a Saboteur in a Reckoner.
    
    When you have about twenty tanks, send them east and then north  with your
    Reckoner to destroy the MCV escort, running over Zone Raiders. Capture the MCV
    and cast Cloaking Field on it. Move it towards the southwest, but don't get
    too close to the evac point. When the enemy Scrin come, send out your army
    of tanks and destroy a Ravager, a Shard Walker, and a Reaper Tripod. Finally,
    send your GDI MCV to the evac zone.

    ===========
    
    This mission is easy if you do it right. I shouldn't have to give you many
    details on building up your base, for we've been bff for twelve whole
    missions. Make a crane, build a few harvesters, build a few refineries, tech
    up. Upgrade Supercharged Particle Beams and build five Air Towers. Send an
    engineer west and capture the silo, then build a barracks there and capture
    the spikes. Make a few Shredder Turrets to guard the pass.
    
    When you have about twenty Venomus, send them North along the eastern border
    and destroy the two powerplants on the island. Then send them east along
    the southern border, and then north along the western border and destroy
    those power plants as well. When that's done, the base defenses around the
    Communication Centers will be powered offline.
    
    Take your army of venoms (should be around sixty) and go around destroying GDI
    bases and units. When everything but the base in the northwest is destroyed,
    you can stop making Venoms. Put some Engineers in the silos around the map.
    Spend your money on a few MCVs and put one by each Communications Center and
    one in the mountain pass in the northeast. Build shredder turrets and SAM
    turrets in that pass so reinforcements die as soon as they appear. Put an
    engineer in each Communications Center and use your Venoms for defense. Put an
    engineer in a Reckoner and spam Venoms again.
    
    When the shield wall is down, go in and destroy all you can with your venoms.
    Do this again when the inner shield is down as well, and then send in your
    Reckoner with a Saboteur. Victory!
