CNCTW Secret Shrine Cameo

The Secret Shrine is a Nod infantry technology center, similar to the GDI Armory, appearing in Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.


It is a large structure composed entirely of red stained glass walls with an exhaust vent in the middle and a small entrance on the side. The building itself houses the living quarters of Nod Confessors, as well as Tiberium infusion facililities, disruption tower control equipment, and a vast armory of infantry weapons.

It is from this facility that Commanders are able to call for a Shadow strike team.

The Black Hand subfaction uses this structure for the religious teaching of Black Disciples and distribution of the purifying flame fuel.

The Marked of Kane however perform cybernetic legs operations on Awakened, saboteurs, Tiberium troopers and the Enlightened in this structure.

Unlike the GDI armouries, it does not contain an infirmary for healing infantry.


Building a Secret Shrine unlocks the Tiberium Infusion upgrade to both the general force of Nod and the Marked of Kane.

It unlocks the Black Disciples and Purifying Flame upgrades to the Black Hand subfaction.

Additionally, the Confessors upgrade is made available to the general force of Nod, and the Cybernetic Legs upgrade may be purchased by the Marked of Kane.

Support Powers

The Secret Shrine sole support power is that it allows a Shadow Strike Team to be deployed by the general force of Nod and that of the Marked of Kane. However, it is not available to the Black Hand subfaction, considering their disdain for stealth.
