All That Glitters is the sixth mission in Kane's Wrath.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

The annual energy summit is taking place aboard the GDSS Philadelphia consisting of GDI's highest ranking officials. As the Third Tiberium War draws near, Kane sees this as an opportunity to shape GDI's future. He sees the GDI treasurer Redmond Boyle as a half-wit and suitable replacement for the director of GDI. He then deploys LEGION in command of Specter Artillery Units, Stealth Tanks and Shadow teams.

Events[edit | edit source]

The Treasury Building

Since the Specters are unable to enter the treasury complex without being detected, two Shadow teams flew into the complex and placed artillery beacons at four power plants within the complex, allowing the Specters to destroy them from afar. With the power plants destroyed, the defense structures guarding the complex lost their power, allowing the Specters as well as several Stealth tanks to safely enter.

The strike team then destroyed the Communications Center, cutting off access to the Ion cannon network and leaving the treasury building completely defenseless. The treasury building itself was levelled soon after.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

The attack on the GDI Treasury dealt billions worth of damage to the GDI, and successfully stalled Redmond Boyle, preventing him from dying aboard the Philadelphia. GDI, on the other hand, is completely unaware of Nod's involvement, and believed the attack was conducted by a mutant separatist group called the Sons of Umagon.[2]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Valuable assets[edit | edit source]

There are several Veterancy crates and Healing crates around the Treasury complex. Also, there are many Resource crates near a Tiberium Spike and in a corner on the southern plateau. These crates have to be collected in order to complete the "Steal Gold Bullion" bonus objective.
