Resources are the fictional currency used in R.U.S.E., which represents the raw materials needed to construct buildings, assemble vehicles, and field units. Each faction starts with a finite amount of resources, and must construct certain buildings in order to acquire additional funds.

Ways of acquiring Resources include:

  • Supply Depots - Buildings which must be built on a Fuel Dump, and send supply convoys every 30 seconds.
  • Admin. Buildings - Fragile offices which generate a small amount of resources every four seconds.
  • Headquarters - Your first HQ generates a small amount of resources on its own, similar to an Admin. Building.

Defending your resources and attacking those of the enemy are of prime importance in the game.
