For the Tiberian Dawn variant, see Barracks (Tiberian Dawn).

The Infantry Barracks was a GDI facility specialized for infantry training during the First Tiberium War. It was the GDI equivalent of the Hand of Nod.


In the tutorial, the GDI Barracks is different from the multiplayer model in that the tutorial model has a door located at the left-back corner leading to a shooting range, a lack of a beacon pedistal, an elevator located on the left side that leads to the basement floor that houses the MCT along with some health and ammo, and some health and armour packs to the side of the elevator that may be used to replenish armour and health from the previous "tutorial" segment with Sydney Mobius.


In the multiplayer C&C mode, players could change their default character to a different infantry class via purchase terminals within any GDI building, as long as the Barracks was active. Should the Barracks be destroyed, only the Minigunner, Shotgun Trooper, Rocket Soldier, and Engineer can be purchased.


The Barracks allows the following infantry to be purchased (known as characters in the purchase terminal):
