Renegade X is a free first-person shooter developed by Totem Arts. The aim of the project is to recreate and modernize Westwood Studios' Command and Conquer: Renegade multiplayer experience. Originally envisioned as a remake of the game in Unreal Engine 3, Renegade-X has evolved into more of a spiritual successor. Featuring updated gameplay, improved balance, enhanced graphics, intricate strategic depth, and a new approach to map design, Renegade-X aims to improve upon the original.


In September 2009, Renegade-X beta 0.55 was publicly released as a multiplayer-only modification for Unreal Tournament 3. After this version, the mod is no longer being developed as a modification for UT3, but as a free standalone game using Unreal Development Kit (UDK). As a result, the 0.55 beta is still available from the site, but no longer supported or patched by the development team.

On 28 January 2012, Totem Arts released a singleplayer demo called Renegade X: Black Dawn, a short standalone singleplayer game. The multiplayer version was first released on 26 February 2014 as an open beta, with Black Dawn missions excluded.

New Features

While most the gameplay and unit roster and design were left intact and easily recognizable, the creators of Renegade X wanted to improve the original Renegade gameplay by adding many new features as well.

Aim Down The Sight (ADS)

While still keeping the arcade-shooter feel of fast-action, low-recoil, drawn-out gunfights from the original C&C Renegade, many weapons now have the ability to aim down sights just like modern shooters, which improve the accuracy and effective range of many weapons.

Capturable Tech Buildings

Structures in the mid-field can be captured by repairing their Master Control Terminal (MCT) instead of destroyed, granting your team a bonus (e.g. Tiberium silos increase income).

Building Armor

Structures have an armour and health bar. In total, it is equivalent to 120% of the building health in the original Renegade, 60% in armor and 60% in health. However, only armour can be repaired. Any damage over 61% to the structure is dealt to health, and cannot be repaired, leaving the building permanently damaged.

Infantry Specialization

Each infantry class has a specialized load-out with a different Secondary Weapon, Abilities, Type of Armor and more!

Purchable Items

You can buy additional items for your infantry class to carry: Super-Weapon Beacons ( Ion Cannon Beacon / Nuclear Strike Beacon ), Airstrike Binoculars ( A-10 Warthhog / AC-130 Gunship ) or a Repair Tool.

Improved Crate System

In maps you'll encounter floating boxes that appear as a Mystery Crate. You can receive rewards from these crates such as a different Infantry Class, A GDI or Nod Vehicle, an enemy Infantry Class, Veterancy Points and more!

Be aware that these crates can also give you a 'less nicer' reward such as a Nuclear Warhead, an Alien abduction and more!

Veterancy System

A major C&C feature introduced in Renegade X! During a match you'll receive Veterancy Points through various ways. These points will fill up your meter to make your way up from Recruit to Heroic! Each rank will modify the statistics of your infantry class and vehicle such as Increased Damage, Rate of Fire, Movement Speed and more!

Commander System

In each game, players can choose a team commander that will gain access to various abilities only the Commander can take use of. As a Commander, you can give your team orders, Start and Stop the Tiberium Harvester, Use unique weapons like a Cruise Missile to knock out an area full of enemies!
