Dune II Atreides

The Atreides are the House which is for peace, but they find warfare can be the only path to success.


To use Fremen effectively you need to build as many palaces as you can afford, generate Fremen as often as possible, and overwhelm the enemy with sheer numbers of them. They are very useful for mapping out the enemy base, but as you can’t control their movement, it makes the mapping somewhat erratic. In the unpatched version, Rocket Turrets don’t fire on them, only vehicles that are being attacked. In the patched version (version available on this site) they are fired upon by rocket turrets.

Dune II: Fremen

Sonic Tank

Sonic Tanks are most effective against foot units, which they can destroy in two hits. They are also very useful against Rocket Turrets, provided you put the Game Speed to Fast/Fastest, as this is a bug which increases their range.
