We present searches for massive top and bottom quark partners at CMS using data collected at √s = 7 and 8 TeV. Such partners are incorporated in 4th generation models, or can be found in other models, able to solve the Hierarchy problem and stabilize the Higgs mass. Other searches presented here focus on excited states of composite heavy objects that decay to top quarks and jets. The searches span a range of final states, from multi-leptonic to entirely hadronic, and limits are set on mass and production cross sections as a function of branching ratios.
