Yuri wants to restart the Psychic Amplifier project, with one of them newly built in the desolated area of Chicago. With nowhere to run, the Soviets race with the American rebels to capture the device before it is activated and the conquered grounds are completely lost.
- Mission description

Firewalking is the fourth mission in the Act Two Soviet campaign. Catastrophe Tank and Drakuv Prison Vehicle make their first appearance in this mission.


Following his successful mission to rescue Morales from the Epsilon clutch, the General looked on his reports on a female Epsilon soldier that are being held in the Rio human experimentation facility for weeks with the personnel keep saying that they "missed the deadline" and are afraid of Yuri's wrath. The Soviet investigation went into a dead end when the tank where the female soldier was locked in was destroyed by a nuclear warhead.

The General recalled the moment early in the Third World War where the Soviets attempted to control the North American populace by deploying two Psychic Beacons, using a Psychic Amplifier deployed in Chicago to enhance their powers. Unfortunately, the Beacons and the Amplifier were destroyed by the American forces, forcing the Soviets to use a MIDAS ICBM to annihilate Chicago and American forces in the city, turning it into an uninhabitable wasteland. However, it turned out that Yuri had fabricated the reports which mentioned that the ruins of Chicago had become a hazardous area in order to cover up the construction of a new Psychic Amplifier there.

This Amplifier, if activated, will threaten the Soviet's hold over the S.S.A., so the General know that he must seize the device to make sure that North America remains under Soviet control as a key territory for their next move. Unfortunately, the American remnants have also noticed Yuri's machinations, and also move in to secure the Amplifier for themselves. The situation essentially escalated into a three-way battle, or a Mexican standoff.


Landing in the heated fight

Soviet Forces had arrived in the city, landing to the same place which the Latin Confederation base used to be there. There they saw both of the Americans and the Epsilon forces clashing in. However, rather than wasting the lives of his men in facing them both, he decided to let his men watch the fight until either side won with only few survivors.

When that happened, he ordered his men to clean up the remainder of either side and quickly establish a base.

Defending from both oppositions

After the General built his base there, he soon received a warm welcome from the Americans whom are very angry to see him. His forces manage to beat them off which afterwards the Epsilon forces arrived to do the same thing, which his forces thwart them back as well.

There are occurrences that both sides appeared heading to his base, his forces simply defended against the combine attack which instead turn into a Mêlée à Trois. However the Soviet General knew he couldn't let this go on, as this will delay his chances of capturing the Amplifier.

Capturing the Amplifier

After thwarting both enemies, he continue to gather enough forces for a swift attack into the Epsilon Base. He also keep left some of his men to defense the base from unsuspecting American attacks which he decided to ignore them.

A combination of Ground and Aerial attacks swiftly thinned down the Epsilon forces there, leaving nothing but only the Amplifier intact which soon an escorted Engineer seized it and afterwards the Amplifier is re-tuned for the Soviet's cause.


With the Chicago Amplifier in our hands, we can delay Yuri's conquest of the United States territory, regroup and assesses the damage done and plan for a counterattack. With the loss of the homeland however, we might require help of unexpected allies.
- Battlefield report

With the capture of the Amplifier, the Soviets secured a base of operations and delayed Yuri's plans to conquer the country. However, they still need to reclaim Mother Russia from Yuri's hands whom making a use of the brainwashed Russian forces to attack across the continent.

This made them decide to conduct a meeting with a former ally whom also suffered from a similar problem...


Despite the mission description and briefing, the American forces will never attempt to capture the Psychic Amplifier; instead they will likely focus on the player's base, which makes the situation a 2v1 battle. If the player does not have enough defenses against both sides, they will soon get overwhelmed before they even commence the attack on the Epsilon base.
