To garrison a unit, it must be infantry. Simply select it, and bring it to a garrisonable structure, signified by an arrow pointing down into three circles. Garrisoned structures will fire upon any enemies in range with their respective weapons. There is normally room forthree squads within a garrison, and a well balanced one will destroy all but the largest armies. I try to garrison a sniper squad as soon as there is room available, because they will take out two thirds of an infantry unit right away if they even decide to venture near them. I follow that up with either missle squads or Zone troopers, to fend off any vehicular attacks, then a riflemen squad, in case the garrison is swarmed by enemy infantry. But still, a garrison can be absolutely annhilated by large groups of enemy aircraft or tanks. However, this is a tactical advantage for YOU now. What happens when you have a dozen tanks focusing on only three of your infantry units? You've distracted the enemy to the point where you can get a decisive win right there. Flank the enemy tanks with some of your's, or better yet, call in the aircraft, and decimate any opposition. A dozen tanks take a lot of resources to build, and now your enemy should be scrambling to muster together another army. Skip down to the blitzkrieg section to figure out how to win the rest of this battle. > Building Hopping Building Hopping uses garrisoning to quickly clear occupied cities. Let's start a scenario, say NOD has occupied a large section of a city ahead, all garrisoned with enemy troops. How the heck are you going to clear that out, or better yet take it over. You could always send in a bomber squad, but that would just level the city, and you would have no buildings to take for yourself. This tactic quickly eradicates any enemy troops in a city while barely damaging any of the structures. Think of it as a poison gas or a Halo ring. To start off, build a Grenade squad. Send them into an unoccupied building somewhere in the city, but be careful to keep them out of sight from the buildings with enemies garrisoned inside them. For a visual representation, let's start with a street made out of...er... backslashes and lines. /======\ l l l NOD l - Building garrisoned by NOD forces l l \======/ /======\ l l l NOD l - Building garrisoned by NOD forces l l \======/ /======\ l l l emptyl - Ungarrisoned building l l \======/ Start out by garrisoning your grenadier squad in the empty building /======\ l l l NOD l - Building garrisoned by NOD forces l l \======/ /======\ l l l NOD l - Building garrisoned by NOD forces l l \======/ /======\ l l l GDI l - Building garrisoned by GDI grenadiers. l l \======/ They will immediately proceed to throw grenades at the NOD occupied buildings, in one toss, they will completely clear it of enemies /======\ l l l NOD l - Building garrisoned by NOD forces l l \======/ /======\ l l l emptyl - Ungarrisoned building l l \======/ /======\ l l l GDI l - Building garrisoned by GDI grenadiers. l l \======/ Now, take your units into this now empty building.

Blitzkreig focused on Lightning warfare, or warfare which basically eliminated any opposition before it could defend itself. It led off with bombing raids from the air, then followed up with tank columns, and the infantry ran in to mop up the rest. What you do for this is simple. Bomb the crap out of the enemy's defenses. Their turrets and tanks should be destroyed right where they stand, and just do this for a while. Eventually, the enemy will try to get smart and build some anti-air defenses. What wins in a battle when there are three anti-air buggy's fighting a pair of mammoth tanks. You guessed it. Keep the assault going with the tanks, then bring in the riflemen to flood the area. You should be able to rapidly take out enemy structures and entire bases just with this tactic. > Raiding Raiding is a very simple, yet effective way to defeat the enemy. The enemy will have to respond very quickly if they even want to stop your raid, and if not, it will cripple their economy and ability to produce units for a while. One of the drawbacks to the Command and Conquer series in my opinion is the presence of only one resource. While in other RTS's, if you could not gather one resource, you could easily use one of three or so other resources to compensate for that lack. However, here, every single race is entirely dependent on Tiberium. You can use this for your advantage however. With one well placed artillery strike, coordinated with an air offensive, you can destroy the players refinery or harvester. He will no longer gain income, and if he had been massing units at the time, some will not be built, and he may go bankrupt because of it. It is because of this same principle that I recommend targeting this area whenever you have an Ion Cannon or other weapon of Mass Destruction at your disposal. > Attrition Occasionally, the battle will become a stalemate. Both sides are on defense, and they're simply waiting for the other side to attack just so they can counterrattack. They probably have numerous defense systems set up and traps ready to be set off. You are one of these. What do you do? Imagine a perfectly balanced army facing you. No matter what you throw at them, they are set up for. This is a war of Attrition, WWI style, the side that lets up first even a little bit will win. The best solution for this is an ion cannon right into the middle of their army, but if that's unavailable, you may need to pursue different means. Make sure all of your forces are set to "defensive", and all of your infantry is garrisoned if possible. You want to make your enemy leave his defenses. For this, you need something that will make him want to attack you. An AI opponet will not get riled up, but a human enemy will become frustrated while you put a Juggernaut- just out of reach of any of his weapons. Just keep slowly wearing him down, until you get them out of formation. Then charge with your own army and quickly mass more to keep him from building more. Never get into this situation while you're NOD. Chapter /===================\ /=======\ GDI WALKTHROUGH \ | 4.00 \===================/ \=========\=================/ Prologue /======\ 4.01 /========================\ GDIW \====/ North Carolina Badlands/ ======================================/ Briefing /=========================/ ==========/==========================\ "Recent satellite intelligence points to a suspicious level of activity in the North Carolina Badlands. InOps is concerned that the Brotherhood of Nod may be setting up shop there. Your mission is to investigate and report back as soon as possible. An abandoned GDI training facility is located nearby - use that as your base of operations in the area." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Determine the status of the abandoned GDI outpost > Build a Barracks and 3 GDI Riflemen squads > Build a Power Plant > Repair the Command Post > Eliminate the Nod Outpost > Repair the Bridge > Construct an Airfield > Eliminate Remaining Nod Presence in the Area Secondary > Construct a Watchtower > Construct a second Infantry Queue > Build a Tiberium Silo > Capture a NOD Building > Capture the Tiberium Spike =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ Don't be fooled by its label as the first mission of the game. This is the normal RTS introductory mission that's been in almost every game of the genre ever. This one is executed pretty well, so get cracking on it so you can get to the really fun stuff. You start out with a small squad of riflemen, but it will be plenty to take into the base in the East and annhilate the NOD infantry that oppose you. You can even garrison them in the tower if you want. Your Mobile Construction Vehicle will arrive shortly and unpack itself. Build a barracks, followed by three riflemen squads, and build the watchtower that you're told to build. Build a second barracks to get the second secondary objective, and you'll get some missle soldiers. Bolster your ranks with some more infantry from the barracks, then assault the NOD outpost. After mopping up the NOD forces there, make sure not to destroy the power plant. You will recieve two engineers, use one to repair the bridge and waste the other capturing the NOD building and thus fulfilling another secondary objective. Sell said NOD building for yet another, and build a Tiberium Silo to keep racking them up. Just North of the bridge is a spire-ish object aptly called a Tiberium spike. These are nuetral structures which can be captured by engineers from either side. Capturing this with an engineer is also the last secondary objective you need. The rest of the war is a war of Attrition, but you can use Raiding to your advantage when you're told to build an Airfield. When you can convince High command that the battle is a stalemate through repeated offensives, they'll authorize the Ion cannon. Aim it for the middle of the base and watch the sparks fly! Act 1 ======\ 4.02 /========================\ GDIW \====/ The Pentagon \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/=========================== "The Philadelphia is gone, Reykjavik has been overrun, and Nod forces are now attacking the only remaining GDI world command hub in the Pentagon. If we lose the Pentagon, GDI will be thrown into chaos and the war will be lost. Your mission is to defend this vital installation. The first priority is restoring power to the building defenses and systems so you can repel the main Nod attack. Then you'll need to get an engineer into the Pentagon to reestablish the command and control system links. Your final objective is to counter-attack and drive Nod out of the area." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Bring the Pentagon's Defensive Power system online > Capture the Pentagon > Garrison all four watchtowers and defend from the NOD assault > Eliminate the NOD central HQ Secondary > Eliminate the small base to the North > Clear four garrisoned buildings =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ You'll start out this mission with plenty of engineers and plenty of Riflemen. Immediately march your riflemen to the east and destroy the NOD infantry, who are too busy pumping rounds into the power plants to notice your army shooting them. When the coast is clear, send in the engineers to retake the power plants and another to retake the pentagon itself once you are told. As soon as you've done that, all of your watchtowers will be destroyed in one NOD bombing run. Looks like you'll have to do this the old fasioned way. Send a rifleman squad or two to garrison inside each of the watchtowers. As soon as you finish off the opposition, you'll get a present, a formation of APC's and some Grenadiers. You should now be working on the bonus objective to destroy clear four garrisoned buildings. And what better tactic to use then building hopping? Send your grenadiers into the city, and guide them on a path of destruction as they eradicate all the NOD's in the area. There's a small NOD base to the North which you only kinda need to destroy, but with all of your forces, you should simply annhilate them. The NOD base is up the stairs behind the highway. Sneak some Grenadiers into one of the buildings, and hop your way until you're a stone's (or a grenade's) throw away from the base. Quickly flood the area with Riflemen loaded APC's afterwards. The missions still aren't difficult... for now. /======\ 4.03 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Langley Air Force Base \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Nod forces have overrun all of the major GDI air fields in the region. Your mission is to retake Langley Air Force Base, home of the Air Combat Command. A small GDI outpost near the coast might be useful as a base of operations. We'll drop your team off nearby. Once the outpost is secure, take back our airfields, get some Orca scout aircraft in the air, and then drive Nod out of the area." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Capture the base on the shore > Reclaim the GDI Airfields >Destroy remaining NOD presence Secondary > Capture the Tiberium Refinery in the city > Rescue all four snipers =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ You'll be making a beach landing for this mission, so be sure you've brought your barf bag. The GDI base on the shore is besieged and if you take it, you'll be able to use it for the rest of the mission. As soon as you've cleared the base, load up some riflemen and missle soldiers into the nearby bunkers for base defense. The Tiberium Refinery is in the Southwest corner of the city, further West down the road which you landed adjacent to. If you can, send a lot of grenadiers, bolstered by riflemen as cannon fodder, to head towards the refinery. There are numerous garrisoned buildings nearby - A perfect opportunity to building hop. Send a missle squad to take out the turret, making it safe for your engineer to move into the refinery. You may as well clear the entire section of that city - you'll find two sniper squads. There is also a very small section of the city just across the street from where you landed. Use the grenadiers to clear the section, freeing up your last two sniper squads needed. Only one thing stands in your way from continuing into the base - A rather well defended turret cluster. This will be pointed out to you, but I'll state it anyway. Select the battleship in the water, and bombard the hub of the turret cluster with it. Quickly send some sniper and missle squad units to garrison in the structures in the center, and they'll pick off any enemy that ventures out of NOD's base of operations. Use APC's to clear out the raised platform where the Airfields are, and use these airfields to make yourself some Orcas. Spam as many Orcas as possible, and they should be able to finish the rest of the mission on their own. Just keep raiding their base, which is on a raised platform at the North part of the map, and finish them off. If you're really fancy, you can use blitzkrieg tactics. /======\ 4.04 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Hampton Roads \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Cut off the Nod reinforcements flowing into Hampton Roads by disrupting their port operations. You'll do this from the inside, infiltrating an elite GDI commando into the facility. Take their radar offline by destroying the Nod Operations Center. Once they're blind, take out their nearby stealth bomber base. As soon as Nod's bombers are out of action, we'll send in a fleet of battleships and you can use sniper units to spot targets for the big guns." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Destroy the Nod Operations Center > Destroy the Stealth Bomber airfield > Destroy even more NOD crap Secondary > Complete the Mission using only the Commando =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ Your Commando is a flat out animal when it comes to destroying NOD things. He is the definition of an army of one, and you can see that as he single-handedly cuts through an enemy squad of riflemen like a hot knife through butter as the scene opens. Jump jet towards your first objective, and destroy the enemies there as well. This entire mission is basically the Commando running around destroying stuff. Remember to pick up the yellow flashing crates along the way, and that the Commando can detonate an enemy structure in a matter of a second or two. When you reach the last base, a flame tank may come at you. Be prepared to run, Jump jet away, and shoot the arbitrarily scattered fuel barrels in its path. This shouldn't be anything harder than a cakewalk. Act II /======\ 4.05 /========================\ GDIW \====/ The White House \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "GDI morale sagged when Nod troops unfurled their red banners over the White House. Now you'll turn the tide by retaking this powerful symbol. Since Nod has a staging area nearby, you'll also get a chance to wipe out a large stockpile of high-end Nod weapons. Start with a small force to take out Nod's air defenses. A Firehawk squadron from Langley AFB will turn Nod's parked military hardware to burning junk. Then attack the Nod base right outside the White House itself." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Destroy the Nod Air Defenses > Use your Firehawk Airstrike power on Nod's artillery outpost. > Destroy the surrounding Nod base to reclaim the White House. Secondary > Suppress the Nod infantry advances by putting Snipers into the designated buildings. > Destroy the Power Plants > Destroy the Secret Shrine =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ In order to get yourself some reinforcements, you'll need to destroy the Air defenses Nod has set up. Using missle squads, aim for the hubs of the turrets, it should look like a small ball with three turrets connected to it by wires. As soon as that happens, go into your powers menu and turn on the "Firehawk Airstrike" on the target marked for you. This will take out the entire base. As soon as reinforcements arrive, build up your base quickly. Remember to build a refinery, infantry and vehicle producing structures, and most important, an armory. As soon as that's done, send a sniper squad and a rifleman squad into the little marked building east of the Tiberium. This will fulfill the first bonus objective, and you'll be well on your way to defending your harvester, since NOD should only send Infantry. *Note - It is important to do this as soon as possible, if NOD destroys your harvester during a crucial moment, you may spend a lot of time trying to rebuild your economy. I learned this the hard way. Build the support structures neccesary to defend the North side of your base, and get ready for some blitzkreig. Load up some missle squads into some APC's, and get some predator tanks if neccesary. Bring them all to the East side of the map, around where you're being attacked, and then swing up North. Your objective is the secret shrine which allows NOD to build stealthed units. Afterwards, garrison all of your infantry in the buildings overlooking their base, and send some predators to demolish whatever is left. Once the battlefield has been turned into a wasteland, it's mission accomplished. /======\ 4.06 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Casabad \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "InOps flagged an irrigation plant in Casabad as a possible chemical weapons factory. A GDI forward base was established nearby in preparation for a raid, but we've since lost contact with the base. We've also lost contact with a team of Zone Troopers sent to investigate. Get in there, secure the base, and then find out what's going on in that factory." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Secure the barracks > Destroy the Weapons research lab > Destroy the War factories Secondary > Capture all three Tiberium spikes > Destroy the NOD Outpost =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ For this mission, you'll get nothing but Infantry. It's a shame, but a real man can do it, so why can't you? You'll start with a few zone troopers and some riflemen, which you should immediately use to take the base to your North. Send an engineer to take over the Tiberium spike which is right INSIDE the base. You'll be getting some money from this transaction, so use the extra funds to build yourself some extra zone troopers and maybe another engineer. The troops that you started with should be sent North to what will become a constant battery of Attack Bikes. Send another engineer to capture the spike to the North. This spike will allow you to rake in the dough and buy whatever you want. Send another engineer, flanked by some riflemen or zone troopers, to take the spike to the east. This spike will become immediately attacked, so spam a bunch of Zone troopers. You should have more than you'll ever need once the tiberium spikes start to rack up the dough. When you feel ready, send some zone troopers, a few missile squads, and some riflemen to act as cannon fodder to the East side of the map. Destroy the Weapons research spike first, and look out for the Flame tank. Then, send them all North towards the cliff. Send you riflemen up the ramp to distract the tanks and get wiped out, then jump jet your Zone troopers around to the West side and flank the enemy. /======\ 4.07 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Alexandria \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Nod is using the port of Alexandria to export nuclear and chemical weapons. Your mission is simple: Shut this operation down. Destroy the loading cranes to cripple their port operations, sink their ships to block the docks, wipe out their administration and control centers, and obliterate any military units and structures nearby. You'll have Mammoth Tanks at your disposal. Roll over them, Commander." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Destroy the loading dock cranes > Destroy all NOD Port Authority Buildings Secondary > Destroy all NOD ships parked at port > Capture the EMP Control Center in the city > Deploy a surveyor at the Northern Tiberium Field =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ This mission may seem familiar, and that's because it was in the demo, if you played it. This is the first mission where you get to use your friendly neighborhood Mammoth Tanks, and it's also one of the most open missions in the game. Make sure you build some watchtowers, as they will detect stealth and many NOD advances will feature this. While you defend your base, utilizing Zone troopers, watchtowers, and some bunkers that your riflemen can build, build a War Factory and a Tech Center. Having both of these buildings will allow you to use Mammoth Tanks. Make sure you upgrade them with Rail Guns at the tech center. To build a surveyor, use your support tab. Then send the thing up to the field and use the power "Deploy" on the field. Once you have a few more Mammoths, send them up North to defend the surveyor, and you may even want to build an entire new base there. Send an engineer, flanked by Mammoth tanks, east to the EMP Control Center. Build an airfield, and you should be able to make some Orcas which will fly virtually untouched all the way through, destroying all of the cranes and all of the ships in the port. However, the rest of the base has far too many anti-air defenses to bomb. However, the base still isn't a match for ten mammoth tanks. Hell, four will cut a swath of destruction throughout the entire base. /======\ 4.07 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Cairo \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Your mission is to take out a massive Nod nuclear weapons facility in northern Cairo, the same base that was used to launch the strike on the Philidelphia. This is now the highest priority GDI target worldwide. Time is of the essence: Nod is likely to launch everything they have if they think you're getting too close." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Destroy the NOD Headquarters > Destroy the NOD Nuke Facility Secondary > Destroy the NOD Power Plants > Eliminate ALL NOD Structures =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ Uh oh, this mission is giving you a countdown, so you don't have much time. You're going to have to speed build, which isn't the best tactic for GDI. But let's put things in perspective. That cliffside with all of the NOD equipment on it?, it's fortified to the teeth with anti-air, anti-armor, and especially anti-infantry. Those power plants behind the equipment?. You'll need to destroy one of those in eighteen minutes. Following this strategy right here, you should be able to stop the countdown in five minutes. Start off by building a War Factory and Tech Center. Send the units you got at the start to the North side of your base, and flank them with some Watchtowers to see any stealth that my come up. When your War Factory is done, build a Harvester first. Turn to the Tech Center and research the Rail Gun upgrade. Build an engineer from your barracks and an airfield chock full of Orcas. You're now ready for a daring raid. Towards the West side of the base, there's a cliff. Have your engineer call for transport and take this route all the way to the NorthWest where there's a Tiberium Spike. Consider this a practice run. Follow that with your Orcas. This time however, take them East when you reach the end of the line. There's a turret hub of SAM's that you should take out, then try to take out the Power Plant next to them. When they're done, immediately recall them back to your airfield. With any luck, one or two may survive, but best of all, the Countdown will be reset and paused for awhile. The countdown may restart soon, but that doesn't matter, just repeat the process you did to stop the last one. In the meantime, spam Mammoth Tanks. If you can, and you should be able to with enough Silos, build a dozen. When they're completed send them North, where they will batter down the gate and destroy everything in their path. Make sure to destroy every last structure and getting the "Objective Complete" sticker before going to the North-East and finishing them off. /======\ 4.08 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Croatia \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "GDI has a forward operating base in Croatia, but it's been cut off from supply lines and is under heavy attack by Nod forces. Their power is low, their construction yard has been destroyed, and they don't have much in the way of firepower. You need to take command of that base and hold out long enough for us to send in a reinforcement convoy." ==================/ Objectives List / ================/ Primary > Secure GDI Base until reinforcements arrive > Send aid to reinforcement team > Escort the MCV safely back to GDI base > Destroy Southwest NOD base > Destroy North-East NOD Base > Destroy the South East NOD base Secondary > All base defenses survive > Return MCV to base unharmed The first thing that you should do for this base, is to repair EVERYTHING. The person who built this base decided not to give it enough power and apparently couldn't figure out that watchtowers could be built from behind walls. Basically, you'll be blocked from creating anything, and will soon be assaulted by NOD forces and you won't have enough power. This is a situation that can only be explained in bad ASCII ________G G______ l l l A A l l l W l l G W l l G l l l A A l l______ ______l W W G=Guardian Cannons W=Watchtowers A=Air Batteries Luckily, you'll have plenty of support in the form of a few Predator tanks and some assorted Infantry. Power up the following structures to start out - The South Watchtower on the west side. The West watchtower on the South side, and all four Guardian Cannons. Move one Predator to the North Side, and two to the East side. Have your riflemen build Pillboxes (Dig in ability) right in the doorways in between the watchtowers. Keep on the lookout for aircraft, and have your pitbull take them down as neccesary. After you're given a new objective, wait for the remains of NOD's forces to throw themselves upon you, and then build yourself some APC's and a few Predators. Fill up the APC's with riflemen and one with missile squads and send them across the bridge to the Southwest. Steer them through the city, staying clear of the base and destroying garrisoned buildings as you go by. Eventually, you'll reach the clearing with the buildings in them, and from there simply destroy the turret hub and surrounding buildings with your Predators. You'll get control of the MCV now... Lead with your APC's, and form a protective barrier around the path of the MCV. There are two parallel streets, so just keep your APC column in between the MCV and the base. Remember to destroy the garrisoned buildings too. If your MCV is damaged, it's likely from Fanatic attacks, so watch out for those by keeping an APC nearby at all times. Once you bring your MCV back, it will deploy, and hopefully you'll earn the bonus objective. Build a Tech Center and research Rail Guns, and spam a lot of Predators. Mammoth Tanks aren't effective nor neccesary for this mission. Send your Predators North-East first, and you'll get rid of that pesky vehicle problem if you destroy all of the buildings. Next, airlift them to the cliff on the South-East edge to take care of those damned Venoms. Finally, group them with your APC's and charge the Southwestern base. It shouldn't be hard, as you'll only find infantry. /======\ 4.09 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Albania \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Recent sat-surveillance confirms a significant build-up of armored vehicles and weapons at a large Nod logistics base in Albania. The sat images show row upon row of Stealth, Scorpion, and Flame tanks waiting to be deployed in defense of Kane's Temple Prime in Sarajevo. Your mission is about destroying this arsenal before it is used against you in combat. You'll start with a small force to clear the way, then we'll send you Firehawk attack jets to finish the job." =================/ Objectives List / ===============/ Primary > Clear NOD Border defenses > Infiltrate NOD supply depot > Eliminate NOD Rocket bunkers > Capture East Ridge reinforcement bay > Destroy NOD supply depot Secondary > Survive defenses unharmed > Capture airfield reinforcement bay > Capture motorpool reinforcement bay > Arm a firehawk with a missile to destroy a NOD venom This will be one of those covert, only get a few units to start with mission that are more common with NOD, but GDI can do it too. You'll start out with a pair of Grenadier squads and a pair of riflemen squad. You are in a desert square that is blocked by an invisible black wall of death. You need to get your squads to destroy all of this unharmed. That's three turrets and a riflemen squad. Start out by sneaking around the far-right turret. The lasers will fire at you, but they're meant for vehicles and won't do anything. Have your riflemen kill theirs and then take out the turret hub. Finish it off with the barracks and accomplish your firt primary as well as your first secondary objective. You'll receive a few friendly Predators/APC's as well as a friendly Rig. Deploy your rig right under the bridge, and send your predators up to the cliff to destroy the NOD Rocket bunkers. Have them return and heal, and you'll receive five engineers. Now let's do the math. You have four engineers, you need one to capture the bridge, and three to complete every objective, you can't afford to lose them. Before you rebuild the bridge, plant your Predators on the other side to destroy anything that might come across. Send the four predators across the bridge to destroy the defensive hub, then follow it with your rig, which you should then have deploy. Load up two APC's with Missile squads, one with riflemen. Leave the rest of the infantry to the south. Build yourself a mini wall around the rig with (starting from left), an APC filled with Riflemen, an APC with a Missile squad, a Pillbox filled with riflemen, two Predator tanks. Put your pitbull just nearby where your riflemen have dug in, and the remainder of your squad will be left to take out all of the NOD forces. Sounds fun right? Start off by sending them along the cliffside to the East, staying way clear of the base and the big mean scary obelisks. You're looking for the reinforcement bay to the south, you'll probably need a couple go's at it. I would save before you send your units out. Lead with the predators so they can barge their way in and destroy the turrets, then bring up your APC behind them. Keep your pitbull out of harms way for now, in fact, just leave it behind until you see aircraft. When your units get too damaged, feel free to retreat back to the warm confines of your rig for a minute or so. Eventually, your units will gain levels and reach veterancy, which will allow them to heal on their own. Anyway, when you level the base (except for the reinforcement bay), retreat your units back to your rig to repair, and replace the missile squad in the APC with an engineer. Drop the engineer off to capture the bay, and you'll get a nifty Mammoth tank and two airfields filled with firehawks. Arm four firehawks with missiles and send them to the North-west, where they'll likely find a Venom and accomplish a bonus objective. Arm the other four with bombs and level the base just under the cliff, then send in your tanks to establish ground control. Retreat back with your APC to grab an engineer and claim the base for yourself. You'll get a pair of predators and a Rig, though the rig is kinda useless. You may as well deploy it here to heal your units. Don't let it get too close to the obelisks or it'll be even more useless. Take an APC around and destroy all of the dormant vehicles which are... everywhere. Meanwhile, send your firehawks to level the base to the North-west too. Eventually, lead your assault force, which should be bolstered by everything you got from your reinforcement bays. When you capture it, make sure you send a pitbull out too. There are probably stealthed units there which are just waiting for your engineer to get out of the APC. Once you capture this, destroy everything. Have your firehawks take out the obelisks and then move in your assault force to take out all of the production buildings, which will complete the mission. Go you. /======\ 4.10 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Sareajevo \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "Kane is making his last stand at Temple Prime in Sarajevo. Your mission is to take out his defending forces, destroy the surrounding compound, and disable the ion disruption towers protecting the temple complex from energy weapons. Knocking out the disruption towers will open up options for GDI Central Command now that the Ion Cannons are nearly back online. However, be aware that Kane and his Science Ministers have been working on a Liquid Tiberium device of considerable destructive power within Temple Prime. It is imperative that you do not use the Ion Cannon on Temple Prime yourself without authorization. An Ion Cannon strike could detonate the Liquid Tiberium in the Temple and set off a chain reaction in the large Tiberium fields found throughout this Yellow Zone - the resulting blast would be massively destructive and may kill millions. This is a decision that will have to be made at the highest levels of the GDI command structure." =================/ Objectives List / ===============/ Primary > Destroy Ion Cannon Disruptor Field generator #1 > Destroy Ion Cannon Disruptor Field generator #2 > Destroy Ion Cannon Disruptor Field generator #3 > Build an Ion Cannon control center (combo breaker) > Destroy Temple Prime with the Ion Cannon Secondary > Capture NOD's Science ministry buildings > Capture the Mutant Hovel > Capture the Liquid Tiberium factory > Destroy an Avatar with the commando =================/ Walkthrough / ===============/ Use your infantry as a barrier for this mission, they'll be good for destroying the enemy infantry coming at you. Park your favorite mobile defense platform to the North, and put all of your vehicles around it. Build everything neccesary to create a successful base. You'll want to build yourself a Commando, and some Mammoth Tanks too. Purchase the rail gun upgrade, and make sure your base is completely lined with watchtowers. Build a pair of firehawks, and use it to take out the obelisks which are... everywhere. Some avatars will come at you in the later stages, distract them with your mammoths and have a Commando jump jet behind them to destroy them and accomplish a secondary objective. The Mutant Hovel is on a cliff on the southwest. Train an engineer (you might want to train a few), and transport him up there to accomplish yet another bonus objective. As soon as possible, you'll want to expand your base towards the North. Send a rig, flanked by Mammoth Tanks, (lots of 'em) and park them just above the ramp going down towards the NOD base. Make sure you've destroyed the obelisks with Firehawks first. Just park your Mammoths there, and if you need some bait, send some Juggernauts up to the cliffside. NOD will start sending everything they've got, and your Mammoths will have no problem completing their veterancy. Once they do, just ease them into the NOD base, they'll obliterate everything in their path. Feel free to fly in reinforcements, and engineers. The engineers will capture the two bonus objectives, and you'll be in good shape. Once your Mammoth Tanks have destroyed the three disruption towers, you'll get the order to use the Ion Cannon. Use it, and open up an entirely new chapter in the story. ACT IV /======\ 4.11 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Munich \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "The savage, unexpected attack on Munich by the invaders has taken the city's garrisoned GDI forces completely by surprise. The battle was over before it began. As the invaders ruthlessly wipe Munich from the face of the Earth, you must marshal the surviving GDI forces and fight a desperate rearguard action, holding off the enemy just long enough to allow the GDI F-T Lab engineers to escape in armored transports. These engineers have key information about our new enemy, and must reach safety." ================/ Objectives / ==============/ Primary > Protect the civilian transports Secondary > Capture the GDI Lab > Capture the Power Plant This mission is epic, chaotic, but very easy. You have more than enough firepower to take down all of the enemies, even though some don't even register. Just keep your forces on top of the trucks the entire time and they'll take down anything that comes to close. Eventually, you'll get some engineers. When you get them, just use 'em to take control of the two buildings. (The engineers should be untouched). You only need one truck to survive, thank god. Once you activate the power plants, the mission will get much easier, as it will activate the Sonic Emitters, which completely annhilate all of the Scrin ground forces. /======\ 4.12 /========================\ GDIW \====/ Stuttgart \ =======================================/ Briefing /==========================/ ==========/===========================\ "While Stuttgart is ostensibly under complete alien control, GDI has received several distorted transmissions from within the city indicating there are survivors either in hiding or pinned down by alien forces. One of these surviving units - an elite Commando - has managed to evade his attackers. You will work with this Commando to round up as many other surviving units as possible, then use the resulting force to take out the alien base dominating the city. Keep an eye out for a GDI combat engineering team - they are capable of reactivating both GDI's Stuttgart base and the city's defensive grid, which would make the mission far easier." ================/ Objectives / ==============/ Primary > Capture or Destroy Alien Structure > Rescue Engineers > Chapter /==========================\ /=======\ Contact Info/Legal Stuff \ | 5.00 \==========================/ \=========\========================/ Thanks for reading; if you would like to contact me on gameFAQ's I can normally be found on the Gears board, the Oblivion board, the Halo 3 board, the Two Worlds board, and the Mass Effect board.
