The Threat Meter is a special measure in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising.



The Threat Meter is a higly-scientific measure of chaos and destruction over time. A higher threat level accelerates the speed at which Security points are granted and also causes units to gain veterancy faster.

For every enemy unit destroyed, the commander gains threat points equal to 75% of the price of the destroyed unit. For every unit lost, the commander gains threat points equal to 300% of the price of the lost unit.

Threat points decrease constantly, with the rate of decrease increasing as the threat level rises.

Threat Level Threat Points Veterancy Bonus Security Point Bonus Rate of Decrease (per second)
Yellow (1x) 0-12499 None None 50 points
Orange (2x) 12500-37499 50% 50% 150 points
Red (3x) 37500-50000 100% 100% 300 points

Security point counter

Next to the Threat Meter is circle-counter, with a number in the middle that shows the number of Security points a player has. Once the circle-counter is filled, a security point is granted. The Top Secret Protocols menu can be accessed through the central button.
