How To Enable Attack-Move In Command and Conquer Remastered

Command and Conquer Remastered brought a fresh new life to the RTS giant, but die-hard fans have been waiting to know if there is an attack-move option available in the game. If you are one such fan then you should read the rest of the guide to know.

How To Use Attack-Move In Command and Conquer Remastered


Well, the bad news is that the developers haven’t added the attack-move in the game, this means that your troops won’t automatically attack enemies while approaching them.

You will have to manually assign the attack command to your troops in the game for this effect to take place.

Though attack-move isn’t available, fans should keep in mind that there is another option that works a bit differently but might come in handy.


While you are moving your troops you can press ctrl+alt+click, this is a targetted area defense, and your troops will quickly gather around and defend the specific spot pointed out by you.

While this isn’t ideally what you want, this is far better than your troops being ambushed and not doing anything. Additionally, you can also start an attack guard by pressing G.

Command and Conquer has been on the top of the RTS genre for a long time and while the attack-move option is available in most games in this genre it has alluded the die-hard fans of Command and Conquer forever.


But in Command and Conquer, players can hold Q and then click around the area to order their troops to attack and move. This is by far the only alternative that we could find in the game and it looks like the developers are keeping the original game’s value and not bringing in a key to initiate attack-move.

While this would have been an ideal feature in an RTS game, the developers have stayed away from it, this allows the players to be more creative in their plays and not let things be delegated to automation.

There is a sense of accomplishment while you’re constantly engaged in battle and this though annoying at times will help you come up with better strategies and plans for your next attack.
