The Barracks is the Epsilon's infantry production structure.
The Epsilon Barracks is a shrine dedicated to Yuri's vision, even so far as to be built in his likeness as Yuri's voice constantly echoes through the structure,[note 1] bringing confidence and bravery to those who serve him. With the Epsilon Barracks, a commander can train basic and advanced Epsilon infantry. The more Barracks a commander has on the field, the faster infantries are trained.

Like all Barracks, the Epsilon Barracks is one of three buildings that are available by default once the Epsilon Construction Yard is deployed. Therefore, unlike in the vanilla Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge, it is encouraged to build this structure first, so that the proselyte can churn out Spooks for reconnaissance, Engineers for capturing of vital tech structures, and Initiates for offense and garrisoning of civilian structures as soon as possible, and build appropriate defenses (like the Gatling Cannon) when needed.
The Epsilon Barracks trains the following infantry:
|Basic Infantry. Strong vs. Infantry.
|Basic Infantry. Strong vs. Armor, Aircraft.
|Scout Creature. Strong vs. Infantry.
|Utility Infantry. Unarmed.
|Suicide Creature. Strong vs. Infantry, Structures.
|Heavy Infantry. Strong vs. Ground Targets.
|Advanced Infantry. Strong vs. Infantry, Structures.
| Mind Control Infantry.
| Mind Control Infantry.
|Espionage Agent. Unarmed.
|Sabotage Infantry. Unarmed.|
|Elite Infantry. Strong vs. Armor.|
|Elite Heavy Infantry. Strong vs. Structures.|
|Elite Infantry. Strong vs. Infantry.
|Hero. Strong vs. Everything.
Only one Libra may be trained at a time.
|Hero. Strong vs. Infantry, Armor.
Only one Malver may be trained at a time.
|Heavy Infantry Hero. Strong vs. Ground Targets.
Only one Rahn may be trained at a time.
The AI follows its behavior from the original game and will only build a Barracks after building a Bio Reactor in the early game.
The AI will build a second Barracks if they have built a Pandora Hub.
If Mental AI Boost is enabled, the AI will build a certain amount of Barracks that do not require a Pandora Hub, depending on the difficulty (1 max for Easy, 2 max for Normal and Hard). Combined with the Barracks that requires a Pandora Hub, a Hard AI with Mental AI Boost can own up to 3 Barracks.
