Stomping on Holy Ground is the twelfth and final mission of Command & Conquer: Renegade.[1]


As the smoke clears from the Ion Cannon strike, Sakura informs Havoc that Sydney Mobius is held inside the Temple of Nod, deep within the lowest levels. Havoc, despite Locke's worries of lack of radio contact once he enters, walks into the still-burning ruins and descends into the Temple. Inside, he makes his way down into the depths of the Temple, shadowed by Kane through the security system and his EVA unit, all while Nod's best soldiers, from Black Hand to Templars, attempts to stop him, only to be slain by the commando.

In the Temple, Havoc confirms numerous intelligence reports about what laid inside the Temples, and fights the main Templar legion stationed within the main ReGenesis lab. One of the more curious discoveries is Abel's tomb, a place referred to by Kane as the site of the original Temple of Nod.

Havoc manages to reach the core of the Temple, where the altered Elena Petrova is performing forced Tiberium augmentation on Sydney Mobius. After rejecting her offer to join the Black Hand as a next generation human, Parker manages to defeat her in a long duel, interrupted regularly by Black Hand soldiers, and freed doctor Mobius.

In retaliation, Kane orders a nuclear missile launched from the Temple's silo against GDI command. This threat is alleviated by Mobius, who narrowly manages to engage the locking clamps on the missile and close the silo doors, despite being under fire from Black Hand soldiers. Their job done, Havoc and Doctor Mobius escape the Temple before detonation.

As the sun rose on the battlefield, Havoc and Sydney made their way to the ruined Nod airstrip, where General Locke arrives with Ignatio Mobius, who ran out to embrace his daughter. Locke asks Havoc, "mission accomplished?", to which he responds:

Could've done it left-handed!

Dr. Sydney Mobius must be protected as you attempt to reach the surface. Escort her safely to the top of the missile silo.
Ren POG M11 1 04 Sabotage Nuclear Missile
Escort Dr. Sydney Mobius to the missile control center, so she can properly lock down the launch clamps. This will cause the missile to destruct within the Temple housing.

New weapons[]


  • A prototype of CABAL can be heard over the intercom in the lower levels of the Temple. As it took damage from the ion cannon strike, it is constantly repeating warning messages and even nonsensical, humorous phrases such as:
    • All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
    • Intruder alert! Alert cancelled! Intruder alert! Alert cancelled! Intruder alert! Intruder cancelled! All intruders, please report to the detention center.
    • Warning: ask not what what your country can do for you, for a toil today is a lesson tomorrow.
  • There is a bug where the two Initiates drinking from the washroom toilets will then appear to "moonwalk" out of the room.
