Command And Conquer (PC)
Begin building a structure without enough money for completion. Press R to surrender before construction stops due to lack of money, but do not complete the surrender command. Wait a few minutes, then select the "Cancel" option. The structure will be half-completed. Note: This only works in versions earlier than v1.22p.
Use the following procedure to sell the indicated buildings
for free minigunners. For the GDI missions, sell a Guard Tower
or Advanced Guard Tower. For the NOD missions, sell a SAM site
or Obelisk Guard Tower (Obelisk of Light). First, select the "Sell"
button in the Sidebar. Use the Left Mouse Button to sell
the building. Use the Right Mouse Button to activate the
selection cursor. Use the Left Mouse Button to select the
building and press S. Note: This only works in versions
earlier than v1.22p.
Start the game with the c&c funpark command
line with the NOD disc. Choose to a new game and select NOD. This
will start the game in dinosaur mode. You will play three missions
against the dinosaurs and then three other missions where you
control the dinosaurs. Note: If you save your game, it will resume
in the regular game and not in Funpark mode.
Controlling air units
Note: This trick works for both the GDI and NOD. To
control air units in midair, simply give the helicopter a team
number. This allows you to give multi strikes without reloading.
If you want to protect a certain units (for example,
an ore truck) select a vehicle then hold [Ctrl] + [Alt]
then click on the unit you wish to protect. It will follow it
around for protection.
This trick requires a Construction Yard, a high enough tech level to at least build Sandbags, and decent amount of money (depending on where your base is located). Build Sandbags/Fences/Concrete Walls to close up entrances to your base. Make sure the walls are not too close to your base, because the enemy will just shoot over it. The enemy AI is too dumb to know that they can "tear" down walls and they will just stop when they get to the wall.
Build a "wall" around Tiberium when playing
against the CPU. Make sure to also close up the entrances to your
base. Then, press R to display the surrender option. Do
not press anything else and wait for some length of time. Then,
choose the "Cancel" option. The Tiberium amount should
have increased on the map. Note: make sure the Tiberium is "regenerateable".
Train free civilian
Build a silo, then sell it. one civilian will appear.
Destroying the Temple of NOD
Surprisingly, the CPU NOD usually keeps its Temple
in a small second base, apart from its main base. This base is
also usually very poorly defended. There will usually be only
one Obelisk guarding it, however they also usually fill it with
SAM sites making an air attack futile. Also, the CPU will not
use the Nuclear Missile until the Temple is attacked, and for
good reason -- there is only one nuke attack allowed per game
per player. First, build a second base large enough that you can
still fight if your first one, or it, is destroyed. Then, get
a large army and mass it outside the base close, but far enough
away to be out of range of the enemy's Obelisk. Get an Ion Cannon
shot ready and use it to attack the Temple. It will fire its nuke
at one of your bases, destroying it. However, now they have used
up their only nuke and you do not have to worry about it anymore.
Order your army to swarm the base, first taking out Obelisk, then
any Turrets, then everything else except for one building. Take
over the building, barricade the base with walls, then build walls
or buildings over where they had buildings so they cannot rebuild
Disable Obelisks Of Light
Each Obelisk takes a lot of power to operate. Go into
the NOD base and destroy one or two of their Power Plants. They
now should not have enough power to use the Obelisks. After they
are disabled, attack them. The CPU will usually sell them before
they are destroyed. Make sure you destroy all of their Power Plants
before trying to take over their base. If you destroy buildings
before the Power Plants are gone, they will be able to use the
When you build a Nuclear Reactor ($1000), your power
bar will be full of green with very little yellow and red. This
means you do not need to build Power Plants, Tesla Reactors, or
Bio Reactors, as long as the Nuclear Reactor is still in use.
When you build a Nuclear Reactor, you can sell all your other
Power Plants and get extra money and still have near maximum power.
Be extremely careful when it is under attack. If it is at low
health, immediately repair it with the Wrench. The Nuclear Reactor
explodes just like the super weapon "Nuclear Missile",
and leaves a circle of green toxic mist for a certain amount time.
When you get super weapons, you will also get Force Shield. When
you notice the Psychic Dominator, Nuclear Missile, or Weather
Storm used on you, use the Force Shield. Once you use this on
the Nuclear Reactor and other buildings, they cannot harm you
Easy win on final NOD mission
Build all the way along your tech tree and send a Cyborg
Comando to one of the small bases with a Construction Yard. Secure
the area and build three Carry-Alls. Pick up the three Missile
Launchers and bring them directly to the beacons. Note: You might
want to send some troops to the top-most beacon, as it is guarded
by a RPG launcher.
How the CPU cheats
The CPU cheats in the following ways:
- It starts with more money.
- It can rebuild their buildings even when they have no buildings nearby.
- It can rebuild their Construction Yard without an MCV.
You can easily get around the last two, however, by taking out
all their Construction Yards. With no Construction Yards, they
cannot rebuild without an MCV. Destroy all their Airstrips and/or
War Factories to keep them from getting more MCVs.
