Rise of the Reds – or ROTR for short – improves upon the C&C Generals formula while also adding its own distinct elements to it. Most notably, the mod adds two completely new factions, the tank-heavy Russian Federation and the defence-oriented European Continental Alliance. In addition, the three original factions China, USA and GLA have been greatly expanded and redesigned in a variety of ways, with several new units, buildings, powers and abilities to explore and combine in your in-game tactics.
Recyclers can be upgraded with a more sizeable carrying space on their backs to hold a large amount of surplus scrap and spare parts.
In gameplay terms, this allows the Recycler to produce regular salvage crates for a small amount of money.
