Secrets[edit]

Fair Play Multiplayer Honor[edit]

To get the multiplayer honor for Fair Play, you must win, lose, surrender, or exit using normal game channels at a 90% win rate for at least ten games, total.

5 minute Blitz Badge[edit]

The regular Blitz Badge is for beating a skirmish in under 10 minutes. However, you can get the same badge with a five on it instead of a 10 if you beat it in 5 minutes.

Multiple Strategy Centers[edit]

Normally when you are the USA, you can only build one strategy center. But there is a way to get more than one. For this trick to work you must be either the GLA or China. Also, there must be at least one USA team on hard or brutal. You need to build a barracks and get the capture building upgrade. Wait until the USA team builds a strategy center. Make sure it is not destroyed. Before you capture it, capture their command center. Then, build a construction dozer. Begin to capture the strategy center now, and at the same time begin building another one with your new construction dozer. They will both be usable to you once they are finished, so you can use multiple strategies.

Scud Bug[edit]

This cheat allows you to launch the scudstorm repeatedly without having to wait 5 minutes. You start by building a scudstorm with the GLA (note: it does not have to be fully constructed to use this cheat; e.g. at 15% completion) next select the scud storm and press Q. Press and hold Ctrl and select where you want it to fire and it will not stop until you tell it to.

Acquire all badges by editing a game file[edit]

This involves editing a game file, so make a back-up of the file before proceeding.

Locate the Command & Conquer: Generals data folder. It can be found in "C:\Users\Users\My Documents" or "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator" (Windows XP). Locate and use Notepad (or a similar text editor) to open skirmishstats.ini. You need to copy over the contents of the entire file with the following:
