The Flames Will Rise: The Arsenal of the Black Hand

Structures


How to read this page: The values for each structure were obtained from the 1.02 Kane's Wrath XML files. The armor percentages indicate the percentage of damage the structure takes from each damage type. Something with 75% cannon armor takes 75% damage from a weapon that deals cannon damage.

Build Time: N/A
Prerequisites: MCV
Tier: 1
Power: +10
Armor: 75% Cannon, 50% Rocket, 100% Grenade, 25% Gun, 1% Sniper
Health: 20000

The Construction Yard is the heart of the Black Hand base, constructing structures and providing ground control for placing them, as well as a radar. A Construction Yard can be packed up at any time and moved to a new location in the form of an MCV for redeployment. Selling a Construction Yard yields 1750 credits, a Saboteur and a Confessor Cabal Squad.

MCV expansion
Expanding by moving one's MCV is often safer and more efficient than using an Emissary.

Tier: 1
Power: +15
Armor: 75% Cannon, 50% Rocket, 100% Grenade, 25% Gun, 1% Sniper

Power Plants generate the energy needed by all Black Hand structures to function properly. Inexpensive and lightly armored, they are often targeted first, particularly in bases dependent on large amounts of turrets for defense.

Upgrades:
IPB Image
Liquid Tiberium Core: Available once an Operations Center is constructed, Liquid Tiberium Cores allow Power Plants to generate three times as much power for a small fee of $500. This upgrade must be applied individually to each Power Plant.

Tiberium Refineries process raw Tiberium harvested in the field, turning the crystals into valuable credits for use by the Black Hand. Expensive and power-hungry, they are nevertheless central to most Black Hand bases. Refineries can only hold a finite amount of Tiberium. Refineries return $500 when sold.

Selling your Hand of Nod in the early game after training a Saboteur for capturing a tech structure returns some early resources and a Confessor Cabal scout.

Hand of Nod Crushing

Tier: 4
Power: -15
Armor: 75% Cannon, 50% Rocket, 100% Grenade, 25% Gun, 1% Sniper
Health: 3000

Tiberium Chemical Plants, though fragile and expensive, allow the Black Hand to perform the necessary refinements and processes in order to truly wield the power of weaponized Tiberium.

Selling Tiberium Chemical Plants
When sold, the Tiberium Chemical Plant returns a Black Hand squad.

Provides support powers:

IPB Image
Catalyst Missile: The Catalyst Missile agitates any Tiberium in units and structures near the point of impact. The missile does 500 grenade damage with a 5000% scalar against Tiberium-based units and structures, as well as Refineries, Harvesters, Tiberium Silos, and Tiberium Chemical Plants. It can destroy Harvesters and Refineries with ease, and the grenade damage can be used as a last-resort defense against infantry. It costs $2000 and takes 5:00 to recharge.

Catalyst targets
The Catalyst Missile can also be used to target infantry and Scrin units with Tiberium inside, including Reaper Tripods with Tiberium inside, Devourer Tanks with Tiberium inside, Corrupters, and Mechapedes.

IPB Image
Tiberium Vein Detonation: Tiberium Vein Detonation is a truly insidious weapon that draws on the innate power of raw Tiberium. The affected Tiberium explodes with remarkable force, inflicting grievous damage on anything caught in the blast and destroying large quantities of the valuable resource as well. The initial trigger weapon that fires in the center does 10 cannon damage starting 3.2 seconds after activation. The next stage of the weapon defines 8 damage paths in different directions that inflict 3000 damage per second along their paths with a splash radius of 100 for 2 seconds. The damage paths each extend a distance of 200 away from the center. There is also an additional shock wave emanating from the center that does a maximum of 1000 cannon damage in a radius of 250. Units that are in overlapping damage paths will take damage from both paths, and units at the edge and center take significantly less damage. Tiberium Vein Detonation costs $4000 and takes 7:00 to recharge.

Tiberium Vein Detonation targeting
Units that were on top of the Tiberium field when the Detonation is triggered will still take damage even if they move off before all the damage paths ignite. Tiberium Vein Detonation can only be used in areas near a permanent Tiberium field.

Tiberium Vein Detonation price bug
Tiberium Vein Detonation is bugged and will subtract all your money, up to an additional $4000, a couple of seconds after the power finishes. To avoid this, try and keep your credit pile as close to $4000 as possible right before you drop the power.

IPB Image
Tiberium Vapor Bomb: An Armageddon Bomber swoops in to deliver a Tiberium Vapor Bomb characterized first by a toxic cloud of mist that rapidly detonates into a sizable blast. The Tiberium Vapor Bomb does 9000 grenade damage. It costs $3500 and takes 5:00 to cooldown.

IPB Image
Seed Tiberium: An Armageddon flies over, spraying an area with rapidly crystallizing Tiberium that can then be harvested. The net worth of the delivered Tiberium is $3150, an excellent return on a support power that costs $500 and takes 4:00 to cooldown.
