Command & Conquer - Red Alert 2 Game Cheats
Build buildings far away from ur base:
Submitted by: George Tolmay
N.B: In Skirmish.
First make sure you have "MCV Repacks" on. Build ur power sources, then
click on ur Mobile Construction Yard and click anywere on the map. When
ur MCV can delploy, deploy it. Then build a power source then barracks
then war factory and play on. Now build the rest of your buildings.
The idea of this is, is that when you have super weopons and the enemy
has one to he will attack ur war factory first. Now this gives you a
chance to destroy his MCY, while his building a super weapon attack.

In multiplayer game(usually), use your chrono legionaire to protect
your structures. Make him attack your own building (ctrl-click)
protecting enemy airstrike. But hey stop him before your structure's
Also, if you're using soviet team(in skirmish game), make yuris and
once you can capture ifv's, load a crazy ivan and the unit becomes
something like a demolition truck.

when you build a war factory build it away from ur base then if you have
a iron curtain when the enemy attacks with a nuke or weatherstorm use the
iron curtain on your war factory it works like a charm.

PRISM TANK'S TRICK:(ALLIES):
Submitted by: Arsalan Mehdi
To destroy any building , just buid the choronosphere
and make it completely ready,before getting it ready
or after that build 3 to 4 prism tanks and then make
them stand closely and then send them to any where or
close to any buliding you wanna destroy then order the
prism tanks to only attack that bulding or structure ,
they will destroy with thier two or three fires.

If you playing allies you must to build Constrction Yard
Ore Refinery and Barracks. Then build 20-100 rockeeters
and go(fly) to enemy base and destroy soviet flaks or
allied missile launchers and then destroy enemy Construction
Yard and all other things.
Submitted by: MatSap
I dunno if other players can apply this cheat.
In skirmish mode, just after you start the game,
built power plant, ore refinery, barracks, and war
factory. STOP building structures. produce 2-4 miners
and min. 3 tanks. maybe you can build a couple (2-3)
pillboxes/sentry gun, but that's enough! figure out
where the heck you are in the map and the possible
attack from enemy. try to defend your base with only
tanks and anti-air units(IFV,rocketeers,flak trooper,
flak track). if you're an allies, build a repair vec.
(IFV+engineer).after each enemy attack, repair your
tanks.use the environment as your defense advantage
(I send 2-3 snipers under the tree,hehe). then, after
you successfully defend your base for several attacks,
build other structures. (oh, I forgot, after you produced
the miners, build radar. explore the map so you can see
where/when the enemy will attack). don't built prism/tesla
tower...waste of money and enerG.air defense structure
are acceptable.Instead, to!
"upgrade" your defense, build 6-8 mirage/apocalypse tanks
and place them in several strategic places to block the
enemy (I really Mirage tanks,very effective defensive units!).
After you have plenty of money(okay,actually 9000 is enough
to start), mass produce your primary assault units(prism tanks,
apocalyse tanks) and build another repair vec.(if you're an
allies) to cover the damage in the middle of attacks. producing
add. anti-air units are also useful here (if you built apocalypse,
you already have air defences!). then, start your attack. on my
experiences 1 good,planned attack can destroy even the brutaliest
(is that right?) enemy. practice this strategy, modified it to
your needs and finally you become the ultimate C&CRA2 strategist
(is that so?).I even tried it with 7 easy enemies,1 brutal and
2 medium enemies, even 2 brutal and 2 normal enemies and only
lose a couple (max. 19 units loss) in a battle.
The key strategies-plan your game, use your units(and special
units)! effectively, and be a "daredevil" in the battle (you
know what I mean...). email me if you have something to share...
protect against nukes - and bad weather:
Submitted by: Arabo Babakhani
when playing as allies (against computer) it is
important to build your war factory and barracks
away from the rest of your base. If the enemy launches
the nuke, their first target is your war factory and
then your barracks. You might also want to build a
backup and set the rally points out of the range of
the nukes. If you are playing as soviets, remember
that they can do the same with you wit the lightening

tesla tanks then be ready to attack plan ur attack on the
contruction yard have fun
Hints and Tips:
Submitted by: Matthew Phiong
Block the Bridges
To block a broken wooden bridge from being repair by
enemy, all you do is put a dolphin/squid/sub inside
the gap of a broken wooden bridge. This prevents the
enemy from repairing the bridge, and they (most of the
time) will not realise that your unit is preventing them
from doing so. This tactic works brilliantly on some maps.
So, if you block of their land forces you can concentrate
on aerial/naval attack..
Ultimate NUCLEAR Weapon !!
For an extremely potent nuclear weapon. Play as Libya and
build 4-5 demo trucks. Make sure your nuclear missile and
iron curtain are ready and position all the trucks just
outside the base. Use the iron curtain on as many as possible
and then drive them into the base, equally spreading them out
in a circle. THEN set your missile in the middle of the base
and if done right it should set off all the demo trucks for
ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION !!!
Good Base Defence (Urban Maps)
This is a good base defence for those who play in urban map.
Try to build as many GIs/Conscripts and garrison all the
buildings near your base. This will stop your enemy from
entering your base.
Cheap Demo Truck
For this tactic to work you need to have access to a
Crazy Ivan/Terrorist and an IFV. Put the Crazy Ivan/Terrorist
into the IFV and you got a nice cheap demo truck.
Soviet Tank Tactic
This tactic is good if you are Soviets. When you start
your game build 2 Refineries and then when you have Power
Plants and Barracks, build a War Factory. After that build
a few Ore Miners, then build about 15 tanks, after that just
attack them, I have won many games like that, it catches them
There are three ways to stop iron curtained units:
1 - Use Yuris or PSI Commandos to take them over
2 - Use Chrono Legionnaires to freeze them
3 - Use the Chronosphere to pick them up and then deposit
them in the water or on cliffs
This is common sense really - But the easiest way to beat
the computer on brutal is to get a spy into one of their
Refinerys - You will get from 15k to even 80k!! This will
allow you to build a lot of tanks and other units - which
should ensure victory without doubt.
How to Beat Brutals Easily
If you are playing against more than one Brutal enemy you
should first build defenses and then Engineers. If the
enemy is the opposite for example your Soviet and there
Allie than capture the construction yard after the rest
off the base is destroyed by using Prizm Tanks. Re-pack
the MCV and breing it to your base or just build anywhere.
Now you can be Allie and Soviet at the same time.
Take over some cows or cars with a Yuri then control them
go next to you enemys base then make a Crazy Ivan put the
bomb on the cow or car. Walk it up next to your enemy bulding
and BOOM !! Destroying or damaging the building.
The easiest way to destroy your enemy harvester - Rocket
Wait until you have paradrops AND a building ready to be
placed on the map, then click on paradrops icon in the
sidebar (but don't deploy them yet!), then click on your
building (the one that's ready). Now simply use the mini
map in the lower right corner to deploy your building.

When you are playing on islands with brutal Soviet
enemies, they will atack you with 2 or 3 Kirov Airships.
If you build large air defence system you can destroy
airships.Also if you are playing versus brutal Allied
enemies they will atack you with harriers (3 or 4).
Invincible jets (as the Allies):
Submitted by: j. van wageningen
When your jets are about to take off, select guard and
they will attempt to land. However, instruct the planes
to attack as they are in the process of landing.
When the enemy attacks them, they will be invincible.
Invincible demolition trucks:
Construct five or six demolition trucks and have a fully
charged iron curtain at ready. Move the trucks into an
enemy base and activate the iron curtain around them
before the enemy attacks. The trucks won't blow up until
they reach their target.
The Trojan bus:
Playing as the Soviets and use Yuri to take over a school
bus with mind control. Load the bus with five infantry
units and drive straight into an enemy base. The Allies
will not fire on the "innocent" looking school bus.
Defeat The Soviets with Ease:
Bibhash Nandi, Submitted the following Information:
Build at least 10-12 Harriers and keep them ready for use.
Now, create a Weather Storm and make sure that you blow
up enough Power Stations to knock out all the bases defense
systems i.e, flak cannons, tesla coils etc. After the storm,
all the flak cannons should be inactivated. Immediately use
your Harrier aircrafts to blow up his Construction Yard
(or any other vital structure) before power is restored.
With all the flak cannons knocked out, your aircrafts will
blow up his Construction Yard and the rest you can easily
figure out. :-)
Note: You can use this to blow up his Nuke Silo too.

defence is still weak.
When playing as allies, at "Deep Sea" Operation, move all
your carriers and destroyers to the left side of the map,
protect the carriers with destroyers, when the base island
on the top of the map destroyed, move your carriers and
destroyers to that island, and you'll find low defended
base, use your carriers to attack Cons Yard.

use your Nuke Silo effectively! On weathered alliance, your
nuke will be usefull.
Attack the island using Apocalypse's and conquer the all!
Send an engineer and make sure your nuke available. After
that, capture the Batttle Lab, and wait until the map enlarge,
then use you nuke on the Weather Control Device. Have fun!
Soviet Super Attack 2:

Strategy for Soviets:
When playing as the Soviets against the Allies.
Quickly build the Construction Yard, Refinery,
Barracks, Radar, and War Factory. Then Build a
Battle Lab. After that build one Kirov Airship.
Then send the airship to the enemies base and bomb
all the important stuff especially the Construction
Yard. Then you are free to do what ever you want from
Excellent base defense:
Submitted by: rickHH
1.Make 10-12 yuris and place them all around your base.
2.put them as team1 (ctrl+1) then when an enemy attacks
use the yurys 2nd attack. this should destroy most of
the attacking force.
Good Use of the V3:
If you play as the soviets, one of the best way to use the
V3 Rocket is to have about 3 Rhino tanks for each V3 Rocket
to protect them. If you have about 5 V3 Rockets and 12 - 15
Rhino tanks you can take out a medium base! One of the reasons
is that the V3 Rocket fire very long!
The Magic School Bus (Soviet):
Take a Yuri and mind control a school bus (if they're on the map).
You can put five infantry into the Bus and drive it into an enemy
base, they won't fire on it.
Build five or six demolition trucks. Make sure you have a
fully charged Iron Curtain. Send the Trucks into an enemy base,
before they come in range of their weapons, cast the Iron Curtain
on them. They'll be invincible until they reach their target, at
which point they'll still explode even with the Curtain on.
Chrono Legionnaire (1):
Put one Chrono Legionnaire inside an Infantry Fighting
Vehicle (IFV) to make a Chrono Fighting Vehicle.
Chrono Legionnaire (2):
Chrono Legionnaires packed together can zap an enemy building
out of time, try it. Ten Legionnaires and above give the maximum
Want to have some fun with the enemy player? Charge up the
Cronosphere and use it on the enemy unit, then drop it in the
water. Watch the war miner go down to the bottom! Bye bye.
Also try it on ships and drop them on land. Killing an entire
infantry group is fun since infantry can die under the effects
of the Chronosphere. Go ahead, try it!
message: In Multiplayer or skirmish mode, use spies to infiltrate
all enemy battle labs. This is to train new units like the physic
commando (he can use the mind control and plant C-4 on buildings).
Later, if you capture the base completely (meaning all buildings)
you will get the Yuri Prime.
Build a tesler and then put as many tesler troopers around it as
you can aford.The more you have the larger range and power it has.
Therefore if you have 20-30 it will be almost invincible!!
to get crono commando just send a spy into an allied Battle
To get PSi commando send a spy into a soviet Battle Lab
To get Uri Prime you must be An Allied team send a spy into a
Soviet battle lab and capture a soviet mcv and build a soviet
To get crono crazy ivan its the same just but instead of
sending a spy into a soviet send him into an allied
Note: to get a spy to work you must select him am press on the
enemy troop you want to disguise as.
This hint will make any attack with the ALLIES 100% effective.
(1) Build x amount of dogs.
(2) Build half amount of soldiers (any type except Rocketeers)
(3) Build the same amount of tanks as soldiers. (any type)
Now set 2 dogs to guard a soldier and each soldier to guard a
tank. Send the tanks to attack a base and they will be
completely guarded. If someone attacks a soldier, the dog
will tear him to bits, and if an attack on a tank is made,
soldiers will take care of the problem.
Secret infantry units:
If you send spies into your enemy's Barracks, Battle
Lab and War Factory you can unlock secret infantry units
and will be able to build tanks and other units already
promoted with one stripe. For example, in battle with the
Soviets the Yuri Prime, Chrono Ivan, Chrono Commando, Psi
Commando can be unlocked.
Prism Tower creep:
Use the following trick to overrun any CPU controlled Soviet
base as the Allies. It is especially useful in the second to
last Allies mission, where you are pitted against a heavily
defended base with three nuke silos which must be defeated in
order to claim victory. First, create a very heavily fortified
main northern base. Abandon the far northern mineral field and
sell the ore factory there. The most important things in this
part of the strategy are to create a reasonably well protected
beachhead to the south of this base with Prism Towers and
Patriot Missile Launchers. The second item involves some use
of the Prism Tower creep strategy. First, build a Power Plant
to the outside of your base in the direction of where you want
to defend or attack. Then, build Prism Towers as far as possible
in the direction you want to go. Finally, build another Power
Plant next to the Prism Towers you just built -- thereby
extending your range of building Prism Towers and also increasing
your power supply in the process. Continue doing this and adding
extra Towers where needed to create a solid line of access
between Towers, and amplify the damage. Do this on the bridge
just north of your base and blow it out so the enemy cannot cross.
Fortify the Towers there with all the extra GIs you have around
your base. Now that your northern base is well defended, proceed
to the second step. Create an MCV and Transport Hovercraft and
put the MCV into it. Next, go to the far right of the screen with
the Hovercraft, and then straight down. This is the safest ship
lane on the map. While you are moving south with the Hovercraft,
have a Barracks and a Prism Tower building. Also watch the bridge
by the northern base to make sure nobody has managed to sneak
through your defenses. As soon as you land the Hovercraft on the
far southern island, deploy the MCV and build your Barracks and
Prism Tower. Then quickly build another Prism Tower and a Power
Plant. When you have that base defended well enough, build
another Ore Refinery on the southern island in case the nukes
manage to take out the one on the main island and you are low
on money. Employ the Prism Tower creep method mentioned before
with a little more caution when building in range of Telsa Coils.
You should be able to wipe out their base easily. Make sure that
if they launch nukes, you repair or replace all buildings hit by
them, especially those needed to build Prism Towers, as well as
Powerplants. Another useful thing about having a base on the
right side of the southern island is that this is where most of
the enemy planes fly through. You can build Patriot Missile
Launchers which will slow down or halt most of the enemy
paratrooper activity on the northern island. Most of the time,
the enemy will launch his nukes at either your ship building
capabilities or the middle of your main base. Keep a spare MCV
around in case it is taken out. This is not necessary, but is
a precaution in case they figure out to attack the southern
base via nukes. This strategy will allow you to complete the
mission in near half of par time in easy mode.
Defeating the Allies in a skirmish:
Quickly make a Barracks, Battle Lab, and War Factory.
Build one Kuscov airship and send it to the enemy's base,
and bomb it. Bomb the construction site first so they cannot
build, as well as ground to air missile turrets.
Submitted by: Rodrique
it only work in the skirmish mode.
when you are loading the game you just type
slowly ''dollarday''.than you will have 10000000 money.
Create four or five well-spaced power plants right off
the bat in Skirmish or multiplayer games to bring up
your power bar on the right-hand side of the screen,
and then keep your eye on it.
Be sure to garrison your troops into civilian buildings
for extra cover while fighting the enemy; when the building
starts to break down due to firepower, send in an engineer
to repair it.
Speaking of engineers...not only can they repair broken
bridges or partially destroyed buildings, but they can
also penetrate an enemy base and convert their structures.
Create many "Tanyas" (Allied), or "Crazy Ivans" and "Yuris"
(Soviet) in multiplayer games. They're the most versatile
and skilled infantry units available for their respective sides.
Although it's expensive, build an Ore Purifier to help
squeeze more credits out of your mining expeditions.
Submitted by: arsalaan
This is a very easy game. I finished it in just 2 days. It needs a little
concentration and not like that of command and conquer generals. in this
game you should always try to make the defence first. Then create at least
three mine sweepers.
then Make warfactory and all the other buildings. Make a lot of infantry
and hide them in the buildings that come in the way when someone try to
reach your base. In this way your infantry will become better then tanks.
Super Tesla Coil:
Submitted by: G4ceBoy
To have a good base defense build 4-5 Tesla Coil when you have
sufficient money. Then recruit 5 Tesla Troopers (with Cloning
Vats 10 Troopers) and "attack" with 2 each Tesla Coil. It will
result in a further range and damage for the Tesla.(2 troopers
on a Coil it`s maximum, 3 or more it`s a waste of money). They
can also repower a "dead" Tesla Coil.
Submitted by: G4ceBoy
Although you think Soviet Tesla Reactor is cheaper, 600 $, it
provide less power than a Allied Power Plant, which costs 800 $.
(the Power Plant gives you 200, Tesla Reactor only 150).Anyway,
the Nuclear Reactor is the biggest power producer, but you must
protect him at all costs because he can "irradiate" your base.

ATTACK AND DEFENSE:
Submitted by: dj
When playing as allie,one of the best way to attack your enemy, soviet or
allie,is to make 8 or more mirage tanks, 5 or more prism tanks. Number
you're mirage as 2 and prism tanks as 1. Mirage tanks are good in destroying
tanks and other units while prism tanks can easily destroy enemy buildings.
While the prism tanks are destroying the buildings of you're enemy, the
mirage tanks will be the one to protect the prism tanks from any attacks
of you're enemy. In attacking bring also a couple of IFV's if in case you
were attack by rocketeers.
Or simply make 15 or more (elite or not) rocketeers, move you're rocketeers
close to the enemy base (not close enough to the base) then get a spy,
infiltrate the enemy's power plant. Destroy first any anti-air attack units
then destroy all power plants then the enemy will be low powered, then
destroy the construction yard and all that is left with you're enemy.

While playing the game (Generally in the skimrish)sometimes some boxes (on land)

you will get some special powers I.E your that machine.But it has no effects on
cars controlled by the yuri and by the blasting vehicles or persons.
A good strategi is:
First make your base(power plant,ore refinery,barracks and war factory).
Make 5 engineers and one transport helicopter.Put the engineers in the
helicopter and take them to the enemy base.Conquer the construction yard
with one of the engineers(take 5 so if one dyes you can replace him).
Then take the construction yard to your base(not with the transport
helicopter,move it to the base).Then just put the construction yard
somewhere and have the enemy tehnologies and it will be more easy to
