Command and Conquer: Remastered Collection Cheats

Welcome back, Commander! Looking for Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection cheats on PC? Here we’ll list Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection cheat codes and unlockables with tips for Westwood’s RTS game 4K remaster.

Here we will show you how to unlock all Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection codes with a cheats list that’s valid for the PC version (where available).

Take a look at the cheats below… Luckily there are still working PC cheats! Despite the fact that the developers have said that “cheats will NOT be formally in the game” (but that may have been a reference to the console-version’s cheat codes) and they have also fixed a lot of old glitches.

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection Cheats List

Switch Between The Classic 1990’s & New 2020 4K Graphics

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection – Real-Time Graphics Switching Classic to 4K UHD

How to switch between the original and remastered graphics: Press the Spacebar key on your keyboard during any singleplayer campaign mission (and in solo Skirmish matches as well) to see the graphics switch in real-time from the remastered new 4K graphics back to the classic 1995 & 1996 graphics of the originals. You can play whichever way you prefer.

Toggle the graphics from old to new and back by pressing the Spacebar key again and again. It’s great for whenever you’ve had enough of the redone high-res 1440p 4K graphics and are feeling nostalgic for that 1990’s retro 320×200 resolution! (Originally made for 640×480 monitors.)

Note that this toggle also changes the music and sound effects from the original to the remastered versions!

Unlockable Bonus Gallery Content

How to unlock bonus gallery content: Each singleplayer campaign mission you complete in the Command & Conquer and Red Alert remasters, will unlock behind-the-scenes content for you to view in the Bonus Gallery.

The Bonus Gallery includes over 4 hours of B-roll footage, making-of photos, and unreleased music tracks.

Some of these will be never-before-seen behind-the-scenes FMV footage like this old beta cam tape video with Kane from the C&C NOD good ending:

Access New Console-Exclusive & Expansion Pack Missions Immediately

How to play the New Console-Exclusive & Expansion Pack Missions right away: You can access the Expansion Pack & Console-Exclusive Missions from the Main Menu, by going to Mission Select, selecting the extra missions tab (click on the goggles & gaming controller icons), and then you can choose what mission from the Nintendo 64 C&C and PlayStation 1 Red Alert versions or the 1 C&C and 2 Red Alert Expansion Packs you want to play!

That’s right, from Console to PC, you can now experience the original console missions now on PC. They even included the original console cinematic videos for you to watch on PC, featuring community favorite General Carville.

Jukebox Mix of C&C and Red Alert Music

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection – Jukebox Music Player (Games Playlist Mixer)

When you pause the game, you can adjust the in-game music that plays through the new enhanced Jukebox feature. It actually lets you customize your entire soundtrack with playlist support. What this means is that you can play the over 7 hours of remastered music, including 20 music tracks re-recorded live by original composer Frank Klepacki and the Tiberian Sons. — This beautifully remixed soundtrack is available in full in both games, so you can play C&C music in Red Alert and Red Alert music in C&C! Make sure you add the Bonus Tracks as they are previously unreleased music tracks made at the time of the original games and included for the first time in this collection.

Camera Zoom

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection – Camera Zoom

How to zoom in on the battlefield: Another neat little extra feature in the Remastered Collection is that you can scroll your mouse wheel up and down to zoom the camera between the legacy DOS and Gold Windows ’95 version distances for a better look at the battlefield. So you can zoom in on the action.

Command & Conquer Remastered Cheats

No Base Damage from Air Strikes, Ion Cannon Blasts & Nukes

In the NOD campaign: The GDI computer player will send many A-10s with Air Strikes to your North-most base building or field unit (and in later missions many Ion Cannon blasts as well). Instead of building expensive SAM Sites* to stop the Air Strikes, you can either build a Turret or other cheap building a safe distance North-West above your base and keep rebuilding it OR send a cheap Minigunner soldier far enough North of your base over and over again, so that the Air Strikes never hit your main base / army.

Do note that enemy units that are coming to attack your base will also try to kill whatever soldier is most North of all your units / buildings.

*Similarly, all enemy units will go for the most-North building. You can abuse this even further by actually building a SAM Site with a few defenses under or to the right of it, because even enemy Engineers will go into the SAM Site to take try to it over, but instead no damage will be done to it (nothing happens haha). Plus it’s such a strong building, it can take a punch, even a Nuke.

In the GDI campaign: The NOD computer player does the same thing and in later missions will keep launching Nuclear Missiles to your most-North building. Once again, you can build a Turret or another cheap building a safe distance North-West above your base and keep rebuilding it. This will save you a lot of expensive-to-repair damage during a time where Tiberium expense management is key to your victory.

Sandbagging Glitch To Box In The Enemy

How to make hard missions easier with sandbagging: In the singleplayer campaign, when you build the Sandbags (or any kind of build-able walls) they do not get recognized as an enemy target by computer players, but rather just as an environment object they ignore.

You can exploit this glitch to box the enemy in its own base, by building a wall around it, leaving them unable to attack you any further. A simpler exploit is to box in the enemy Harvester(s) with a Sandbag wall, so they run out of money and cannot attack you any more.

Unlock The Funpark Dinosaur Missions

How to unlock the hidden singleplayer Dinosaur Missions: [unconfirmed] Completing either the GDI or NOD singleplayer campaign of the main game (or all of the Covert Operations missions?) will unlock extra missions for you to play involving a dinosaur invasion.

You can access the Dinosaur Missions from the Main Menu, by going to Mission Select, selecting the Dino Logo tab, and then you can choose what mission from the “Funpark Campaign” you want to play!

In the original C&C: Covert Operations expansion you had to start the game by typing “c&c funpark” to start a new game with special dinosaur missions. But of course that won’t work anymore in the remake.

Please comment below if you found an easy trick to unlock them right away. As listed next, the Red Alert secret Ant Missions can be unlocked at the Main Menu. Hopefully C&C has a similar cheat.

Unlock The Ant Missions

How to unlock the hidden singleplayer Ant Missions: While you’re on Red Alert’s Main Menu, move your mouse to hover over the top-right side of the Main Menu where you see a speaker in the background. Next, hold the SHIFT key on your keyboard and at the same time left-click with your mouse on the speaker to immediately access the secret Ant Missions.

Next time you play Red Alert, you can access it more easily from the Main Menu, by going to Mission Select, selecting the Ant Logo tab, and then you can choose what mission from the “IT CAME FROM! Ant Campaign” you want to play!

Nuke Silo Selling Glitch To Gain Free Gold & Infantry

How to get free money and infantry units:

  • Step 1: When you play as the Soviet or Allies, build a Tech Center to get access to advanced building like the Missile Silo that sends out an Atom Bomb. Now wait for your Nuclear Bomb to get READY by switching the right-side building menu to the Superweapons Tab.
  • Step 2: Then the Game Speed can be adjusted from the Options menu by pausing the game with the Esc key and selecting Options and then setting the Game Speed to its slowest (move the slider all the way to the left).
  • Step 3: Once done, go back to resume the game and put the Missile Silo and the mini-map side-by-side on your screen, so you have to move your mouse as little as possible in the next steps.
  • Step 4: Press the SHIFT & S keys at the same time to more quickly go in & out of selling mode, or you can find the selling $-button for it in the right-side building menu (use whichever is easier for you). Now you are ready to use the Nuke Silo Selling Glitch.
  • Step 5: With the Atom Bomb ready, sell your Missile Silo, exit selling mode, and immediately select & fire the Atom Bomb at your enemy via the mini-map (since time is of the essence). Because you fired an Atom Bomb after selling, the Missile Silo sale will automatically be CANCELLED! But it will still partially sell… giving you part of its selling price and 5 random infantry units for free, while still firing a Nuke!

You can use this selling glitch as many times as you like, you just have to wait for the Nuke to be ready to be fired. 🙂

Regenerate Ore Every Mission

[Couldn’t get this old cheat to work anymore] In the singleplayer campaign, whenever you find yourself running out of ore, save the game and then reload it. The ore will have fully respawned and you’ll have as much to delve for cash as you had at the start of the mission.

[Work-In-Progress: We’ll update this page after launch to better reflect the remaster’s changes!]

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection Tips and Tricks

Gameplay Basics

On most missions, your aim is the same—build Structures, Infantry, and Vehicles and take total control of the map by destroying the other team and all their Structures. 

Building costs Credits, so you’ll need a source of income. Use Harvesters to collect Tiberium and bring it to your Refinery to earn more. But remember, the other side wants that Tiberium too, so get ready to fight for it.

Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection – How To Play

Quick tips

  • Left-click and drag a box to select Infantry and Vehicles, then left-click on the map to move them.
  • Move them into unrevealed terrain to make it visible.
  • Click on an enemy to attack, or hold CTRL and left-click the map to attack an area.
  • Hover near the edge of the screen to move the map, or use the direction keys. 
  • Double-click on a Mobile Construction Vehicle (MCV) to deploy it and get access to Structures.
  • You can only build one Structure at a time. Right-click on a Structure to put it On Hold and right-click again to cancel building it.
