For other iterations of this structure, see Hand of Nod.

The Hand of Nod is a signature structure of Nod, serving as the barracks.


This creates elite infantry units for the Brotherhood of Nod. Building multiple barracks will decrease the time necessary to train a soldier.
- Command & Conquer (1995) manual

It is perhaps one of Nod's most recognizable and distinct buildings, integrating the shape of a human hand into the architecture. This reflects the Brotherhood's use of symbolism. In this case, the infantry trained are the "hands" of Nod, changing the world according to Kane's will.

Game building[]

The Hand of Nod is a production structure essential for training infantry, only one unit may be trained at a time in the build queue. It is also a prerequisite for other, more advanced structures. The more Hands of Nod that are controlled by a commander the faster infantry units will be trained.
