COMMAND AND CONQUER:
RED ALERT 2

In the following mission walkthroughs, I'll provide strategies that worked for
version 1.002 and the normal difficulty setting. For the most part, the focus
walkthroughs will be to finish each mission as quickly as possible, rather than
to provide the
full flavor of the game. So, for example, you won't hear me suggest that you

Mission 1 (Lone Guardian)
-- Destroy the Soviet dreadnought fleet.
-- Make contact with Fort Bradley.
-- Keep Tanya alive.
-- Destroy the Soviet supply base.

Take control of Tanya and immediately have her sink the four dreadnoughts.

There are two crates in the northwestern part of the map: one for improved fire,

destroy all of
the sentry guns. You should also have Tanya destroy the gate on the western
of the base.
Now you need to plan your offense and defense. For defense, start building some
tanks, and just let them sit in the middle of your base. Also bring in your two

was. Put Tanya
For offense, send your rocketeers north and then east. They'll discover the
unguarded back of
the Soviet base. Have the rocketeers destroy the two tesla reactors, then the
yard, and finally the last two tesla reactors. This will completely power down
base, and it will also cause several Soviet units – including their only two
tracks – to
attack your base.
Nothing inside the Soviet base can now even touch your rocketeers, so just have

GI's against the Soviet attack. For the most part, the Soviet units will target
and they should be easy to kill while they're thus distracted.
Also of Note:
There is a money crate in the northwestern corner of the map, guarded by a
conscript and an
attack dog. You can also get several more crates by destroying the civilian
buildings on the

south of the
northwestern Soviet base are four GI's and a grizzly tank. The cows are the

Mission 6 (Liberty)
-- Reinforce and assume command of Allied forces at the Pentagon.
-- Destroy all Soviet forces in Washington.
-- 50 minutes
It's difficult but not impossible to keep all of your prism towers intact during
the first few
attacks by the Soviets. You'll have to be quick to repair them, and you'll have
target them so they attack tanks rather than infantry, but it can be done. It's
to sell the wall segments behind the eastern pillbox so it can fire at infantry
units that get
behind it, and so other pillboxes aren't obstructed.
Once your forces arrive, move your MCV down the ramp west of your base and
it on the
coast next to the resource patch. Then set up one refinery there and another
southwest of the
Pentagon near the resources there. Move half the infantry you receive into a
building next to
your construction yard, and move the other half to help defend the eastern part
of your base.
Almost every attack will come from the east.
Once your base is set up and you're happy with your eastern defenses (don't

you) once the
buildings are gone.

There is a tech outpost along the western edge of the map. If you capture it,
you can put an
ore refinery next to it to take advantage of the nearby resource patch.
Mission 11 (Fallout)
-- Build a chronoshpere.
-- Neutralize the Soviet nuclear threat in Cuba.
-- 80 minutes
This mission is a little bit annoying because your base is all over the place,
and you need to
do a lot of things at once so that you can defend it. As soon as you gain
control, do the
following as quickly as possible:
1. Start building destroyers. Squids and subs, not to mention scorpions, are
going to visit
you quickly, and you'll need to be prepared.
2. Send 10 GI's east of your base to the easternmost building, and garrison it.
If you don't,
the Soviets will airdrop in some conscripts, and they'll garrison the building
3. Train a seal, and send him and five GI's southwest over the bridge to protect
Put the GI's in the light tower, and let the seal stand next to it.
4. Train another seal and camp him along the southern edge of your main base. A
dreadnoughts will visit after a few minutes, and a seal is the easiest way to
kill them. You
might also want to put 2-3 patriot missile embankments along the southern edge
your base to
protect against dreadnought missiles.
5. Build a pillbox and place it north of the pillbox already guarding your
refinery. Then build a barracks and place it southeast of the refinery.
Finally, train a
half dozen or so GI's and deploy them around the two pillboxes. One of the
the Soviets will be five terror drones in the resource patch north of the
refinery, and you
need the pillboxes and GI's the protect the miner. Also, when you see the

nuclear silos that you need to destroy. It's possible to disable the nukes
before the Soviets
can fire, but it's better to be safe with your war factory rather than sorry.
Once you have a sizeable force of destroyers and dolphins, send them south to
claim the sea.
Start at the western side of the enemy coast and proceed east. While you're
enemy squids, subs, and scorpions, start cranking out aircraft carriers, and
them to the
western coast where they should be safe. Once you've cleared the sea, and once
you have three
aircraft carriers, it's time to make some air strikes.
First target the nuclear reactor in the southwestern corner of the map. It has
cannons next to it, but enough of your planes will get through to eventually
destroy it. Then
target the barrels on the western side of the Soviet base. There won't be any
flak cannons in
that area, so the attack run should go smoothly. When the barrels blow, they'll
other nuclear reactor out with them (plus a lot of the Soviet base) and the
countdown will freeze.
In fact, the Soviet base will now be without power, so you just need to target
nuclear silos to finish the threat. And, oh yes, at some point you should build
chronoshpere. You can use the chronosphere if you want, but it's much easier to
strikes since you have to build a fleet anyway.
Also of Note:
There are two oil derricks along the western edge of your island. You have to
quick in order to capture them, because the Soviets will eventually destroy the
if they're unclaimed. If you decide to make the effort, take about a dozen GI's
and walk them
carefully to the area. You'll find lots of crocodiles along the way, and it's
best to clear
them all out so you can just tell units to walk to the oil derricks rather than
manually around the crocodiles.

-- Clear the area so chrono reinforcements can arrive.
-- Eliminate Romanov's Elite Black Guard around the Kremlin.

IFV's, and 4
prism tanks. Deploy the MCV in the center of the base where the reactor was,

construction yard so you
have more land to build on.
Don't use the seals to destroy the leftover tesla coils. It's quicker to use
instead use GI's. Start with the GI's you can free in the northern part of the
base, and then
add to them after you build a barracks. When a GI destroys a tesla coil, it'll
jump to elite status, and you can get several elite GI's for free this way.

of your IFV's next to your construction yard. Every so often the Soviets will
send a kirov
airship to attack your construction yard, and you'll need to intercept it before
there. You might want to sprinkle some patriot missile embankments around also.
As soon as you have a barracks, train two engineers and use them plus your
engineers to capture the four oil derricks in your base. With those four
derricks plus a
refinery with two miners, you'll have plenty of credits to play with. When
you're ready to
build a war factory, first build a power plant and place it a couple squares
north of your
construction yard, and then place the war factory north of that so the war

northern corner of the base all by itself. You're going to have to face at

are going to target, as soon as they launch a nuke, immediately sell your war

has two tesla

good news is
that the attacks are scripted and will always take place at the same times, with
units, and in the same places. Once you've seen where the attacks will come
from, it's not
too hard to defend against them.

quite a few
enemy buildings (but not quite reach the chronoshpere).
Nuke the enemy patriot missile embankments.
2. While you do the above, keep building kirov airships. If you get bored, and
if you have
some extra apocalypse tanks around, you can send them northeast. They'll find
buildings with almost no defenses around. Eventually they'll arrive at the
corner of the island, and there they'll find an airport – and, more importantly,
receive three kirov airships in reinforcements.
Once you've decimated as many enemy patriot missile embankments as you think
in several airships and have them target the chronosphere. Airships are lethal
structures, and you only need one to get to the chronosphere to destroy it.
