The Barracks is the Epsilon's infantry production structure.

Official description

The Epsilon Barracks is a shrine dedicated to Yuri's vision, going so far as to be built in his likeness as Yuri's voice constantly echoes through the structure, instilling 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 infantry units are trained.[1]


Like all Barracks, the Epsilon Barracks is one of three buildings that are available by default once the Construction Yard is deployed. Therefore, unlike in the original Red Alert 2 and its expansion, 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:
