Details of the structure that should to be hacked is provided before you start the mission.

For Hacking the structure and transmitting the data to HQ, you will be provided with a Special CnC Vehicle. Only this special CnC will be able to perform the hack on the specified structure. Normal CnC cannot perform this task.

Hacking the wrong building will not initiate the hack protocol.

Remember, during subsequent attempts the specific instance of the structure housing the hack data may be changed.

Destroy the target structure to successfully complete the mission.

Q: What do I have to do in Mission Objective “DESTROY STRONGHOLDS”?
A: In mission Objective “Destroy Stronghold”, your objective is to destroy the enemy’s stronghold 100%, achieving a 3-Star victory.

All the structures in enemy’s strongholds will have powerful compared to their normal counterparts. Defensive structures will have higher health and their attacks will do more damage.

Since the Stronghold base are more powerful than normal bases, they will require multiple attacks to destroy completely. Stronghold carry ‘persistent damage’. That means any damage done to the stronghold will sustain during the next attack.

But remember, if the player does not attack the Stronghold again within 30 minutes, the damaged structures will start regenerating health over time.

Moreover, all the Rally Flag units and the Omega Unit will be re-stationed during every attack.

The player has limited number of attacks until the Stronghold regenerates completely to 100%. Until you hit the limit, the Stronghold will carry persistent damage and will regenerate over time. Post limit, the number of attacks reset and Stronghold is restored to 100%.

Q: How do structures regenerate health or rebuild entirely?
A: If the stronghold is not attacked within 30 minutes of the previous attack, the structures will start regenerating health. They will regenerate some portion of health every 30 minutes if they are not re-attacked.

Moreover, a destroyed structure will be rebuilt in 6 hrs. if the base is not attacked. Post rebuild, they will start regenerating health every 30 minutes.

To stop regeneration structures, attack the stronghold within 30 minutes from the previous attack.
