Mental Omega Wiki

Infantry Only is a game mode specially designed for pure infantry combat. Based on the Tech Share mode, it disables all vehicles (barring miners), ships and aircrafts. Some technology are combined and adjusted for balance reasons. Introduced in 3.3 and balanced throughout the patches, the Infantry Only mode has attained reasonable balance suitable for multiplayer games. It offers a chess-like playstyle much different from either standard Mental Omega skirmish or original Red Alert 2.


Global settings

  • Player gains access to all subfactions' technology, similar to in Tech Share. Thus there's no difference among the three subfactions in the same faction.
  • All War Factories, Airfields, Shipyards and Eco-boosters removed (For Allies' tier 2 tech provider check below). No Naval Combat and Limited MCV enforced by the client.
  • Refinery cost reduced by $500 (Allies/Soviets/Epsilon $2000 => $1500, Foehn $1400 => 900). Sell price decreased to $50 from $300.
  • Stolen Tech prohibited by the client. Cyborg Commando is not trainable in any way.
  • Bonus Crates no longer spawn units. Veteran Crate probability increased to 10 from 8.
  • AI builds less defenses (42/22/14 => 22/12/8 hard/medium/easy).





Tech Buildings


Due to the subfactions' tech are generally shared to the whole faction, some factions can play with mixed infantry types.

The Sovicon.png Soviet Union has a great advantage in this mode. For the Soviet players, large amount of Gyrocopters is considerable, along with Eradicators, Flak Troopers and Morales.

For the Allicon.png Allied Nations, spamming Riot Troopers and Rocketeers is also a good choice.

Foeicon.png Foehn Revolt can spam Duplicant and Zorbtrotter/Zorbfloater, and make good use of Fin.
