Be Quick or Be Dead is a side challenge for Commander's Challenge.


Despite the thirty-seven victories by FutureTech, their Commander is sent to Zaire to attack three bases and steal Takara Sato's Rocket Angel from her compound. She, Oleg Vodnik of the Soviets and Douglas Hill of the Allies are hoping to take down the Futuretech Commander before searching for a dreaded facility belonging to the victors. The Commander manages to crush the three bases and stole Takara's Rocket Angel before the enemies retreated from Zaire. Their mission to locate the facility was entirely abandoned.

Strategies and Notes

  • Your base is pre-built with a Barracks, Warfactory, Powerplants, Airfield (No airfield if you are the Empire), Base Defenses, and a Naval Yard
  • You have instant access to both Superweapons depending on which faction you decide to play as regardless of current unlocks
  • Your base is vulnerable from the rear. 
  • The enemies build fairly quickly, so get ready.
