The liquid Tiberium core was an upgrade avaliable to all Nod commanders and subfaction commanders in both Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.

Game Effect[]

It is, in effect, identical to the GDI power plant's Advanced Turbines and the Scrin reactor's Fusion Core upgrades.

Once the upgrade completes, the selected power plant will output three times the amount of power it previously did.

However, this comes with a drawback. Like the other two factions' power counterparts, this makes each power plant a more valuable target. Additionally, an issue unique to the Nod version is created: a vulnerability to Tiberium-related abilities, such as the Tiberium vibration scan (which will reveal any Tiberium-related structures) and the Scrin Ravager's Tiberium agitation ability (which can damage Tiberium-related structures, though the Ravager only appears in Kane's Wrath).

A Nod power plant will never leave behind Tiberium crystals when destroyed, upgraded or not, despite the visual addition of a Tiberium container.

It is worth noting that, unlike many other upgrades, each power plant is upgraded individually instead of globally, and thus the commander would have to upgrade each of them one-by-one.


  • Tiberium Wars patch 1.09: fixed an error that caused upgraded power plants and reactors to continue providing power for several seconds after being destroyed
