    The Advance Wars series that Americans have known to love 
    has a far longer history in Japan, where it originated. 
    FAMICOM WARS (1988) by Intelligent Systems - The first game 
    in the Wars series came on the Japanese version of the 
    Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), the Famicom system. It 
    utilized a similar play style to Advance Wars but featured 
    just two armies, Red Star and Blue Moon, fewer maps, and 
    obviously not as good graphics. It was a Japan-only 
    GAME BOY WARS (1991) by Intelligent Systems - Game Boy Wars 
    released as the second Wars game, and unlike Famicom Wars, 
    it uses an unusual diagonal grid system rather than a 
    straight up grid. It still has two armies and unlike Famicom 
    Wars, plays in black and white since Game Boy Color would 
    not be released for a good several years. It was a 
    Japan-only release. 
    GAME BOY WARS TURBO (1997) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft took 
    over the reigns of the Game Boy Wars series, and added a few 
    more maps to the original version. Like the first two games, 
    it was a Japan-only release. 
    GAME BOY WARS 2 (1998) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft creates 
    the Game Boy Wars series in color for the first time, with 
    the release of Game Boy Color. It was a Japan-only release. 
    SUPER FAMICOM WARS (1998) by Intelligent Systems - The most 
    well-known of the pre-Advance Wars games, it is the closest 
    to the Advance Wars series and features four armies, though 
    still no campaign mode, and was released on May 1st, 1998. 
    There are a lot of units, including many that don't have a 
    counterpart until the release of Advance Wars: Dual Strike 
    (like four types of tanks), and many of its maps are shown 
    on the Advance Wars game pack. It was a Japan-only release. 
    64 WARS by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft originally wanted to 
    make a N64 version of its Game Boy Wars series and make it 
    compatible with Game Boy Wars 2 but the plan fell through 
    and the game was cancelled. 
    GAME BOY WARS 3 (2001) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft improves 
    the graphics of the Game Boy Wars series even further on the 
    Game Boy Color. It was a Japan-only release. 
    ADVANCE WARS (2001) by Intelligent Systems - Advance Wars 
    for the Game Boy Advance system went into stock in stores on 
    September 9th, 2001 in the United States and was released to 
    the public on September 11th, 2001, and was nearly pulled 
    off the shelves because of the terrorist attack on America 
    the same day. However, it did make it to the USA, and was 
    the first of the series from Japan to reach America. It 
    released in Europe four months later, on January 11th, 2002, 
    and was pulled off the shelves in Japan. It is the first to 
    include a campaign mode and follows the Orange Star Army as 
    they fight across Wars World to defend their homeland. Japan 
    would not get the game until Game Boy Wars Advance 1+2 was 
    released in 2004. 
    ADVANCE WARS 2: BLACK HOLE RISING (2003) by Intelligent 
    Systems - The Advance Wars sequel continues on Advance Wars' 
    storyline, as Black Hole returns to take revenge on the 
    Allied Nations and conquer their territories. It was 
    released on June 23rd, 2003 in the US and followed in Europe 
    on October 3rd of the same year. It was never released in 
    Japan because they did not get Advance Wars prior to this. 
    GAME BOY WARS ADVANCE 1+2 (2004) by Intelligent Systems - 
    Japan decided to pull off Advance Wars off their shelves on 
    September 12th, 2001 after the terrorist attacks on the 
    United States, and did not get Advance Wars or its sequel. 
    Three years later, on November 25th, 2004, Intelligent 
    Systems released a combination game of both Advance Wars and 
    Advance Wars 2, with both campaign modes intact. Users may 
    then switch between AW and AW2 modes. It was a Japan-only 
    ADVANCE WARS: DUAL STRIKE (2005) by Intelligent Systems - 
    Known as Famicom Wars DS in Japan, AWDS features yet another 
    Black Hole invasion, with the Allied Nations trying to fight 
    the invaders. It was released on June 23rd, 2005 in Japan, 
    and will be released on August 22nd in the US, and September 
    30th in Europe. It will become the first game in the entire 
    series to be released universally. 
    The Advance Wars series is like chess played to a global 
    scale. With a compelling story, various commanding officers 
    and terrific music add to the reason why you'd want this 
    game.  As the advisor of a fighting force,  you maneuver 
    allied units into position, capture cities and bases, and 
    attack the enemy units while avoiding threats like the Black 
    Cannon and carrying  your plan to eliminate the enemies. 
    Every unit under your control have weaknesses  and strengths 
    with movement, hit points, attack restrictions, ammunition 
    and fuel that you must monitor often in order to defeat your 
    enemy. You can repair and supply battle units, deploy new 
    units, and use the special powers  of your commanding 
    officer to gain the upper hand on the enemy. Every mission 
    is an epic struggle that requires a firm grasp of the battle 
    tactics to win. 
    ---- 5 > GAME CONTROLS ----
    A: Use A to confirm a selection, select a unit on the map, 
    or activate the menu when it's not on a unit. 
    B: Use B to cancel a selection. Holding B while the cursor 
    is over a unit or a Black Hole structure (cannon, etc) will 
    show its attack range, or will make all the units 
    transparent (so you can see the battlefield) if the cursor 
    is not over any of the above. 
    L: This will move to the next that still can move.
    R: Use R to check information of your units and terrains.
    Start: Press Start after a mission briefing to enter a 
    Campaign Mission. This shows a mini-map in battle and when 
    designing maps, and also skips dialogue in Campaign Mode. 
    Select: Activate the menu.
    This section is composed of various mini-sections containing 
    basic information about the game. It goes from explanation 
    of the Mode Select Menu to info on the armies to the 
    different is calculated to explanation of what each score 
    (power/technique/speed) means. Reading it is a step closer 
    to becoming an Advance Wars: Dual Strike expert! 
    For advanced techniques, go to (m18).
    What's New?
    Since Advance Wars 2, the AI has gotten smarter and utilizes 
    its CO Powers better. It will also stop attacking transport 
    units indiscriminately, preferring to attack them only when 
    necessary. Also, the AI is now affected by Fog of War just 
    like the human player is. 
    Mode Select Menu
    VS. Mode: The versus mode allows you to battle against your 
    friends and/or the computer. You will take turns using the 
    same DS, so you'll need to pass it around. 
    Link Mode: The linking mode allows you to battle against 
    your friends where you use a Link Cable to link up your 2-4 
    DS, and allows for quicker battles. If the other players do 
    not have AWDS, then they can play a few limited maps, but if 
    they have the full version game, anything can be played. 
    Campaign Mode: You can't go without this mode. Campaign mode 
    plays out the storyline of Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and 
    you can save up to three slots. If you beat Normal Campaign 
    mode, you will be able to access Hard Campaign mode. After 
    each mission, you will get coins in which you can buy maps 
    from Battle Maps. 
    War Room Mode: Want a challenge? War Room's got it, and AWDS 
    has brought brand new maps to the mix! From easy 1v1 to hard 
    1v3 maps, you will be tested, given a score, and given coins 
    for your efforts. 
    Combat Mode: Fight in real time, real time strategy style!
    Survival Mode: Enough strategy for today? Try some puzzle 
      - Money Survival Mode: You are given a limited amount of 
    funds and forced to defend yourself with the units you 
      - Turn Limit Survival Mode: You're given a limit in the 
    number of turns you can move units. Defeat the enemy as soon 
    as you can. 
      - Time Limit Survival Mode: Similarly, you have a time 
    limit to destroy your enemies. 
    Design Room: Contains Design Maps and Design CO modes.
      - Design Maps Mode: Design Maps mode lets you create your 
    own map, and as usual, there's a limit of 60 properties. The 
    maximum size the map can be is 20x30, like the old games. 
    Have fun! You have three save slots that you can also name. 
    Design Maps Controls:
      A - Use A to choose and place a unit or terrain on a 
    certain square. 
      B - Use B to cancel your selection of the unit or 
      L - Use L to open the unit selection menu.
      R - Use R to open the terrain selection menu.
      Start - Display overhead map. Press again to close it.
      Select - Displays the Design Maps menu.
      - Design CO Mode: Like in Advance Wars 2, you can edit the 
    colors of your favorite (or least favorite) COs.  
    Design Maps Menu:
      - File: Use File to load, save, or name your design maps.
      - Help: Use Help to enter a Help screen for Design Maps, 
    if you need it. 
      - Intel: Use Intel to show how many properties and units 
    are already on the map for each army. 
      - Fill: Use Fill to fill up the entire design map with a 
    specific terrain. 
      - End : Use End to exit Design Maps mode.
    Battle Maps Mode: You might be asking...what do you do with 
    those coins you get in Campaign and War Room modes? Enter 
    Battle Maps mode to buy maps, COs, and edits with your 
    History Mode: Here you can view statistics of your gameplay 
    Sound Room Mode: Unlocked near the end, this gives you full 
    access to all the music AWDS has to offer.

    to the Northeastern city with an 
    Artillery as back-up. Use the Artillery to weaken the MD

    - Northern Mech 2N
    - Build Tank from Northern base.
    Day 2:
    - Hit the Recon sitting on your city with Northern Mech.
    - Move Tank 1N 4E
    - Build Artillery from Northern base
    - Build Infantry from Southern base
    Day 3:
    - Move Tank onto Northern City to attack Anti-Air
    - Move Northern Mech 1S
    - Move Artillery 1N 4E
    - Move Southern Infantry 3E
    - Build Tank from Northern base
    Day 4:

    - Move Infantry 2N to capture the neutral base.
    - Move Southern Mech 2E and hit the Tank.
    - Send Infantry from your base to capture the neutral city 
    Northeast of it. 
    - Build tank from Nothern Base.
    From here on out things will have gotten too random to 
    follow the day by day guide. In the North your going to want 
    to continue advancing tanks into Black Hole's territory. 
    Make sure to hit the units that can hurt you the most first, 
    even if it means waiting a turn to kill some of his weaker 
    units. Save the Artillery for last. If your Super CO power 
    charges, by all means use it. It'll speed matters up 
    In the South, continue to capture the base with your injured 
    Infantry. Use your Mech to finish off his Tank, and then 
    move it North to capture the neutral city (you may not have 
    a chance to finish capturing it before the end of the 
    Mission 6: The Ocean Blue (by The Roses Thorn)

    this day to day guide perfectly, but if you do the steps on

    Mission 7: Fog Rolls In (by FoGo)
    Day 1:
    - Move your Infantry 2E to reveal Koal's Artillery. Proceed 
    to attack it with your Recon and your Battle Copter. Move 
    your indirect units as far forward along the road as 
    possible, and then do the same with your non-infantry direct 
    - Finally load your Mech into your APC and move it 3N 3E.
    Day 2:
    - Send your Battle Copter to attack the BH Tank from the 
    Eastern side. You should reveal an APC just North of where 
    you attack from. 
    - Your Rocket should be able to move into two forests. Send 
    it into the Northern one. 
    - If you failed to kill his Artillery, it will have most 
    likely moved into the forest south of where it started. 
    Reveal it with your own Artillery and then crush it with 
    your Anti-air. 
    - Move your recon 1N.
    - Move your APC just North of your Rocket.
    - Move your Tank just above the BH recon and attack it.
    - Move your Infantry East to capture the neutral city.
    - If you didn't use your Artillery and your Anti-air to 
    finish BH's Artillery, move your Anti-air to finish the 
    enemy's Recon. Move you Artillery just behind it. 
    Day 3:
    - Use your Rocket to finish the BH Tank.
    - Send your Artillery North so that it can fire on the 
    Lander in the reef. 
    - Use your Tank to hit the APC revealed by your Battle 
    - Move your Battle Copter 2E 3N 1E and attack the Mech 
    capturing your city. You should reveal an Artillery in the 
    forest North of your Battle Copter. 
    - Move Recon 3N 1E to reveal the Lander hidden in the reef.
    - Move your Anti-air just under your Recon.
    - Move your APC into the forest 5E.
    - Finish capturing the city with your Infantry.
    Day 4, and for the rest of the mission:
    Make sure you finish off BH's Tank, as it is their last 
    direct unit capable of causing significant damage. You 
    should also be able to kill off one of his Infantry and at 
    least damage his Lander with your Rocket. That leaves him 
    with an Artillery, two injured transportation units, and an 
    Infantry. You should be able to finish his Artillery and 
    Infantry on day 5. On Day 6, all you need to do is mop up a 
    couple transports, and your done.

    into the APC, and move the APC onto the bridge, unloading 
    the Infantry onto the neutral base. 
    - Move Tank by the pipes 5E.
    - Move Infantry just built from the base farthest East 2E 1N 
    to capture the neutral city.

    - Build a Tank from the base near the pipes.
    - Build Infantry from Northeastern base.
    Day 8 and beyond:
    From Day 8 on out things should be pretty easy going. Finish 
    capturing the airport, and get Infantry in position to 
    capture the other two cities sharing the island with the 
    airport on the next day. Advance Tanks down the West side of 
    the map while you advance B-Copters down the East side of 
    the maps. Continue to capture the base in the middle. 
    Try and get your Tanks in position so that you can use them 
    to block off Black Hole's Western base by turn 10. On turn 
    11 you should be able to block off his Eastern Base as well. 
    Black Hole will use their tag power on Day 11, but they will 
    have so few units by then that it shouldn't make a 
    difference. Finish off your opponents remaining troops on 
    Day 12 for the win. 
    Mission 9: Victory or Death! (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Jake/Max
    Pick Jake first so he gets control of the bottom map.
    The AI follows a basically set pattern, but you really only 
    need the first day or 2 to be the same. After that just 
    follow the general strategy listed below (don’t worry, it’s 
    Day 1:
    • Send all air units except for the fighter 2N of the HQ to 
    the top screen. 
    • Move the bottom mech 2E
    • Move the top mech 1W 1S and begin to capture the city
    • Move both infantry 2E and begin to capture the properties 
    at those locations. 
    • Move the tank 2E
    Day 2:
    • Finish capturing everything, and move the bottom mech 1E 
    and start to capture that. 
    • Move tank 2N 1E and attack recon for 6
    • Move fighter 2N 4E
    After that attack the AA with your tank, continue to 
    capture, build an AA at your bottom base. Use your fighter 
    to kill the north B-copter. Use the newly built AA gun to 
    kill the southern b-copter that kills your mech. Send the 
    fighter to the top screen. Build a bomber, and get it within 
    14 spaces of the black crystal, but be careful not to enter 
    the fighter, AA gun, or black ark’s range. When the black 
    ark has been destroyed, Max will come down and have almost 
    all of his power meter filled. Swap to max and fill his 
    meter the rest of the way. As soon as it’s full, swap to 
    Jake. The next turn, use your Tag and move the bomber 
    towards the black crystal with Jake. Swap to Max who uses 
    his 190% attack power to obliterate the crystal. You should 
    be able to finish in 9 days with perfect power and technique 
    for the 300 point S rank. 
    Mission 10: Black Boats Ahoy! (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Max/Jake
    Select Max first so he gets the first turn.
    Day 1:
    • Move recon 6E and attack artillery for 4
    • Move bottom mech 1S and load onto the APC.
    • Move lander 1N.
    • Load APC onto lander
    • Move sub 5E and dive.
    • Move northern tank 5E
    • Move other tank 5E
    • Move AA 5E
    • Move artillery 5E
    • Move mech 1E
    • Move northern infantry 2E
    • Move southern infantry 3E
    Basically what you want to do, is load the mech in an APC on 
    the lander, and send them at the island with the HQ. You 
    want to capture the first neutral city (nearest you) as it 
    contains a lab map for black boats (which are ever so 
    handy). Aside from that, use your sub to take out 1 black 
    boat, then the b-ship, then the other black boat to 
    obliterate Kindle’s navy. If she’s about to use her COP get 
    off of cities, if she’s saving up for her SCOP you want to 
    kill as much stuff as possible beforehand. Have Max go first 
    by selecting him first, and attack the artillery with the 
    recon, and then advance on her position. Your forces are 
    larger and should be able to take over that island, just 
    don’t let her attack you from a city. That 140% offense 
    hurts. When the lander gets to the island unload the APC, 
    and then move the APC and drop the mech off right in front 
    of the artillery, he can’t attack the mech, only the APC, 
    and the mech will proceed to kill the artillery. 
    Mission 11: The Long March (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Jake/Rachel Sasha/Colin
    You do want to select the COs in that order so they get the 
    turns first, so select Jake and Sasha first for their 
    respective teams. This map relies heavily on Sasha’s use of 
    Market Crash. You need to delay or stop their tag for as 
    long as possible. That means don’t always do as much damage 
    as you possibly can with Jake/Rachel. 
    Day 1: OS
    • Rocket attacks Neotank for 6 damage.
    • Artillery attacks black boat for 6 damage
    • Artillery kills black boat
    • Rocket sinks sub
    • Move recon on city 2S onto the forest
    • Move recon 1N 3E onto forest
    • Move infantry 1N onto mountain
    • Move mech 1W and load onto APC
    • Move APC 1N 4E
    • Move tank 2N 4E
    • Move Md. Tank 2S 3E
    • Move Artillery 1S 2E
    • Swap to Rachel
    Day 1: BM
    • Western B-chip does 5 to full health Neotank
    • Other B-ship does 5 to Md. Tank
    • Infantry 1S 2E and capture
    • Build infantry at eastern base
    • Move sub 4N 1E and dive
    From here on out be very careful. You do not under any 
    circumstances want to give them their tag break without 
    charging Market crash at the same time. You might want to 
    take out the tank at 2hp though, as you will be able to get 
    Market Crash next turn after what is shown above, I didn’t 
    in my game though, so its fine, just stop attacking as OS a 
    bit early. Send that APC with the tank escort and the recon 
    spotter to the neutral cities and bases and capture a base. 
    You will use this APC and mech to capture the lab. You will 
    want to reveal as much of their army as possible for Sasha 
    to hit with b-ships, and you will want to kill the black 
    boat with your sub, which in turn will get killed letting 
    you use market crash again later. If it dies while you 
    aren’t gain9ing anything from your power being active, no 
    worries, it doesn’t hurt a thing. Also, do not concentrate 
    your damage, spread it out amongst the big units, doing 5 to 
    both neotanks or 5 to both Md.s. gets them to join them, 
    effectively cutting down 1 neotank from their army, but also 
    forcing them to not be able to move that neotank that turn. 
    Try and get the OS tag break, as even if you just got hit by 
    theirs after slipping as BM, if you’ve still got a good 
    amount of your units left, Rachel’s SCOP can decimate their 
    forces for Jake to clean up, and you can still win. There is 
    artillery on the lab, and a tank nearby. 
    Try and win around turn 8 for the 300pt. S rank.
    Mission 12: Lightning Strikes (by The Rose's Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Rachel/Max
    Day by Day:
    Day 1: Rachel
    • Move AA 1S 1W and send it to the top screen.
    • Move mech 2W
    • Build APC at base by HQ
    • Build infantry at other base
    Day 1: Max
    • Move infantry 1S and load onto APC
    • Move eastern recon 1SMove AA 1S 1E
    • Move tank that’s below artillery 1E
    • Move artillery 1S 1W
    • Move recon 1S 1E
    Day 2: Rachel
    • Move mech 2W
    • Move APC 4N
    • Move infantry 1N 1E and capture city
    • Build an artillery at the base that is NOT by your HQ
    Day 2: Max
    • Do nothing
    Day 3: Rachel
    • Kill infantry with artillery.
    • Continue to capture
    • Move mech 2N and load onto APC
    • Move APC 5N and unload N
    • Build an infantry at the base by your HQ
    Day 3: Max
    • Do nothing
    Day 4: Rachel
    • Finish capturing the city
    • Move artillery 1E
    • Move mech 1N and capture airport
    • Move infantry 3N
    • Move APC 3S
    • Build AA gun at base by HQ
    Day 4: Max
    • Do nothing
    Day 5: Rachel
    • If he moved the infantry down and started to capture, 
    don’t touch the artillery and move the infantry 1W 2N, if he 
    moved towards you, blow that sucka outta the water with the 
    art followed by the infantry. 
    • Move the AA 1S 1E and send it to the top map
    • Finish capturing with the mech
    • Move the 10 hp infantry 3N and load onto the APC
    • Build a tank at the base that is NOT next to your HQ
    • Move APC 3E
    Day 5: Max
    • Move 7hp recon 2S 1E and join
    • Take out the top 2 b-copters with AA guns
    • Join the 3 hp tank in the west with the one in the east 
    (move the western one) 
    • Move artillery 1E
    From here on out the AI plays differently, in general, what 
    you want to do is this: 
    Use the artillery to hold off any mechs or infantry that try 
    to come over the river (it’s probably been hit with a 
    missile strike, and is at 7 hp. Deal with the mech, build an 
    infantry at that base to help out, then get it on the base 
    to heal. Capture the city with the mech first before using 
    the missile. Build lots of tanks and b-copters. Also, you 
    want them to be regular old tanks, not Md. Tanks, and not 
    Neotanks. I cannot stress that enough. You will want a few 
    more tanks than b-copters but you will need a lot of tanks 
    and b-copters…again build a lot of tanks, and 2-3 b-copters. 
    The tanks will deal with AA and other ground units, and the 
    b-copters will help with ground units a bit more. Don’t 
    build too many more tanks than b-copters though, or he’ll 
    build b-copters of his own, which will be hard to impossible 
    to destroy while winning on the turn Max comes down with the 
    tag break. If he builds 1 or 2 b-copters you should be okay. 
    If he starts to build b-copters, build your own, they’ll be 
    what can deal with them on the tag break. Do not build any 
    more AA for the top front, your goal up there is to 
    eliminate the copters, and keep the APC with the infantry in 
    it alive. Move the APC down to his HQ after the b-copters 
    are dead, and capture it. During that on the bottom front 
    you should use your tanks and b-copters to take the center 
    island. You should have the center island, and an infantry 
    or mech on 2 of the missiles there a few turns before the 
    time Max captures Sensei’s HQ. 
    You do have a bunch of tanks and b-copters by now, right? 
    Well here we go. Once Max comes down (you should have taken 
    the center island from the tanks and b-copters a few turns 
    ago and are within striking distance of his units) use your 
    tag break. Following that, launch the missiles you can with 
    infantry. Now he should have taken a ton of damage, Kill as 
    much as you can and swap over to max who should be able to 
    kill the last few easily. 
    Try and finish around day 13 for the 300 point S rank (it’s 
    not as hard as it seems, just have a good mix of tanks and 
    b-copters that’ll be able to mop up their super weakened 
    forces the turn you get the tag break) 
    Mission 13: Frozen Fortress (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: (OS) Sensei/Grimm (BM) Colin/Sasha
    No skills used
    NOTE: This map contains the lab map for black bombs. It’s in 
    the NE city that’s blocked off by mountains, so it shouldn’t 
    be too hard to get it without harassment. 
    The reasoning behind the teams are as such (will help you 
    understand the general strategy if you read it). You should 
    choose the COs in the order listed so that the proper COs 
    get the first turn. 
    Sensei/Grimm: When you capture the 3 communication towers in 
    your area, Grimm’s rockets become 160/80 day to day, and can 
    fire on Jugger/Kindle’s bases, crippling or OHKOing anything 
    they touch. Sensei gives you stronger infantry at the very 
    beginning, faster transports, and the 1 star tag affinity 
    for 5% luck on Grimm. 
    Colin/Sasha: The increased income/cheaper units allow you to 
    build a decent force despite having few properties. Add in 
    GR and MC you can out produce them and prevent them from 
    tagging, leaving them with little to do (already can’t build 
    from the rockets of Grimm/Sensei). The 3 star tag affinity 
    also gives them a nice 15% luck boost, which is quite 
    Day by Day:
    Day 1: OS
    • Build 3 infantry
    Day 1: BM
    • Build 2 infantry
    Day 2: OS
    • Take your 2 further back infantry and start to capture the 
    cities that are within their reach. 
    • Move the middle infantry 1S 2E and start to capture the 
    • Build 3 infantry
    Day 2: BM
    • Move northern infantry 1N and begin to capture.
    • Move southern infantry 1N 2W and begin to capture.
    • Build 2 infantry
    • Swap to Sasha
    Day 3: OS
    • Continue capturing with everything
    • Move middle infantry out (no specifics as the infantry 
    will hit you on varying sides) and attack the infantry 
    taking it down to 2, and you to 9. 
    • Move top infantry 1S 2E
    • Move remaining infantry 1S 2E
    • Build infantry at top base
    • Build APC at middle base.
    Day 3: BM
    • Finish capturing both cities.
    • Move northern infantry 3W
    • Move southern infantry 3N
    • Swap back to Colin.
    Day 4: OS
    • Continue capturing neutral base
    • Move northern most infantry 2S and load onto APC
    • Move APC 2S 5E and unload E
    • Basically continue to capture out that starting section
    • Build an APC at the western base, and an infantry at the 
    middle one. 
    Day 4: BM
    • Move southern infantry 2W 1N and begin to capture the 
    • Move easternmost infantry 3W and begin to capture the 
    • Move your western of the 2 infantry left 1W
    • Move the remaining infantry 2N
    • Build a tank at the top base
    Day 5: OS
    • Continue capturing everywhere, and move your infantry 
    except for the newly built one so that they can capture next 
    turn, or start capturing. 
    • Move your Eastern APC such that it can load an infantry 
    next turn to carry over to the Eastern side of the map. 
    • Move your remaining infantry (newly built) 2W and load it 
    onto the APC 
    • Move APC 5S
    Day 5: BM
    • Continue capturing everywhere.
    • Move your northern infantry 2N and begin to capture that 
    • Move infantry on mountain 1W and join it into the 
    capturing infantry. 
    • Move your tank 1N 5W and attack the capturing infantry
    • Build an Md. Tank at the top base
    • Swap to Sasha
    Ok, from here on out the AI starts to do other things. So 
    general strategy time! You want to finish capturing up OS’s 
    starting position, and then place rockets at the tips that 
    can fire on BH’s 2 bases. Get your first rocket by taking 
    the 6 hp infantry off the base, but within range of one of 
    your further back ones and joining them for the small boost 
    to cash you need. Then build the rocket at the newly 
    captured base. Once you have the rockets swap to Grimm so he 
    can use the dandy 160/80 units to shred anything they try 
    and build. You also want to take the NE base and the SW base 
    to build more units to support BM. Meanwhile, as Colin/Sasha 
    you want to take that infantry that’s going to capture the 
    base to march up and take the city that’s blocked off by 
    mountains from BH’s position. It contains the lab map for 
    black bombs. You have their bases covered with rocket fire 
    from Grimm, and you can deny them a tag with Market Crash. 
    Just eliminate what remains of BH by making good use of Md. 
    Tanks, and the support given by Grimm. If you manage to take 
    the airport, a bomber can help, though often more Md. Tanks 
    work just as well if not better. 
    You should win around day 11 for the 300 point S rank 
    (remember to use Md. Tanks, support BM with tanks from the 
    NE and SW bases, and to eliminate anything they try to build 
    with rocket fire and it will be a breeze). 
    Mission 14: Lash’s Test (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Jake/Rachel
    Once again, select them in that order so Jake goes first.
    Day by Day:
    Day 1:
    • Move B-copter 1W 5N
    • Move Neotank 6W
    • Move infantry 2E and load onto the APC
    • Move APC with infantry 6W and drop W
    • Move APC 6W
    • Move bottom mech 1S 1W and load onto APC
    • Move top mech 2W
    • Move AA 4W 2N
    • Move Western tank 4W 1N
    • Move remaining tank 4W 1N
    • Move top Md. Tank 4W
    • Move remaining Md. Tank 3W 2N
    • Move Western Artillery 5W
    • Move top artillery 5W
    • Move remaining artillery 5W
    • Move rocket 1N 4W
    Day 2:
    • Move B-copter 1W 2N and attack the pipe seam
    • Move infantry 1S 2W and begin to capture the tower.
    • Move APC with mech in it 1S 5W and unload W.
    • Move Western tank 4W 2N
    • Move remaining tank 6 W
    • Move top Md. Tank 1N 4W
    • Move rocket 4W 1N
    • Move Neotank 2W 4N
    • Move remaining Md. Tank 2W 3N
    • Move AA 3W 2N and attack the pipe seam
    • Move remaining APC 2E 4N
    • Move mech 1N 1W
    • Move Eastern artillery 2W 3N
    • Move top artillery 1W 4N
    • Move remaining artillery 3N
    Once again the AI starts to play differently here, so on to 
    the general strategy! This map should actually be pretty 
    easy. Keep busting at the eastern pipe seam with the 
    b-copter, and you’ll eventually get the black bombs out, get 
    an APC ready to refuel them. You want to blow the pipe seams 
    in the west too to let those ones out…and get a nifty 10 
    points for each one you destroy. Once you have both towers, 
    your forces are about even, with them being slightly 
    stronger, but you have 6 freaking black bombs. Just mass 
    detonate on them and clean up the mess. Use your indirect 
    both to deal with the first wave of attackers, and to 
    quickly destroy the seams. Beat Down (Jake’s COP) is your 
    friend as it gives him both increased movement, but 
    increased range, and extra damage on plains. After they’ve 
    been weakened with the black bomb, most to 1 health, just 
    about anything kills them and cleaning up shouldn’t be too 
    much of an issue, just attack as much as you can. The key to 
    the mission is getting all 6 black bombs before their fuel 
    runs out, but the ones on the mainland shouldn’t be a 
    problem, and the ones on the island can be freed in time by 
    the b-copter. Just be sure to have an APC ready for when you 
    free the island ones. 
    If you try and destroy all the pipe seams for extra points 
    you should finish around day 8 for the 320 point S rank (5 
    extra per pipe seam). 
    Mission 15: Verdant Hills (by The Roses Thorn)
    Suggested COs: (OS) Colin/Rachel (BM) Grimm/Sensei
    Select the COs in that order so the right COs get the first 
    There are 2 ways to win with the 300 point S rank, both will 
    be covered later, they have the same day to day start off. 
    Day by day:
    Day 1: OS
    • Build 2 infantry
    • Move recon 3S
    • Move tank 4S
    Day 1: BM
    • Move NW mech 1N onto the mountain
    • Move NE mech 1N 1W onto the mountain
    • Move NE rocket 1W into the forest
    • Move furthest east in the SE mech 2N onto the mountain
    • Kill Javier’s eastern artillery with fire from both of 
    your artillery 
    • Move western most mech 1N onto the mountain
    • Attack his AA gun for 5 with your artillery
    • Move remaining mech in the SW corner 2W
    • Move SW APC 2N 1W
    • Attack Javier’s western Md. Tank with your western rocket 
    for 3 
    • Attack Javier’s eastern Md. Tank with your eastern rocket 
    for 3 
    • Move remaining SE mech 2E
    • Move SE APC 4N
    • Move SE recon 1N 4W
    Day 2: OS
    • Move western infantry 2W and begin to capture
    • Move eastern infantry 2E and begin to capture
    • Move recon 1S
    Day 2: BM
    Day by day no longer works.
    Starting at Day 2 BM for general strategy: Attack as much as 
    you can with your indirects. 
    Focus on high defense units first as when they go back to 
    Javier these will be a pain to deal with. Also, go after her 
    own indirects as a high priority too, as only they can get 
    at your indirects right now, and as Grimm your units aren’t 
    too hardy. Move both extreme 1 side mechs (far east far 
    west) 2N and into their respective APCs which will carry 
    them up to the tower and drop them off 1 space below them. 
    You want to capture these as they lower Javier’s stats by 
    20/20 and give you +20/0, making for a nice power change. Go 
    ahead and move the SW mech 2E and attack Jess’s AA if she 
    moved it to that space, as it will most likely turn out 8-2 
    in your favor. After that turn, the strategy becomes this. 
    Build a Md. Tank with Colin, and swap to Rachel, who will be 
    playing OS for the rest of the game. Her SCOP if charged 
    will cut Jess/Javier’s units down to nothing rapidly. 
    Well before Rachel’s SCOP should be charged (probably the 
    turn right after their first tag break), you should send a 
    mech towards their HQ, most likely it’s the mech on the SE 
    side. Also, using Grimm’s SCOP you can do a ton of damage to 
    the GE army with those indirects when they are mostly in a 
    position to attack their units. 
    Try and constantly be building units as Rachel, maybe a tank 
    and an infantry, or even 2 infantry, this will help your 
    technique immensely (previously I tried using a 
    Rachel/Sensei team for technique with his powers and that 
    turned out nicely with another 300 point S rank, but the 5% 
    luck addition to Grimm and fast Md. Tank with Colin is too 
    much more of an advantage). Indirects also help for her when 
    she can get her Md. Tank on the city. 
    You should either destroy all units or capture their HQ 
    around day 8, you may never get Rachel’s SCOP from all the 
    damage inflicted by Grimm’s beefed up indirects, and in 
    fact, it is likely you won’t, but so long as you keep 
    building with her and clog that city with her Md. Tank you 
    should be good technique wise. Speed isn’t really an issue 
    for this mission, and neither is power, as you don’t really 
    need to destroy that many on one turn. 
    300 point S rank
    Mission 16: Snow Hunters (by The Rose's Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Grimm/Sensei
    NOTE: This map contains the lab map for the piperunner. To 
    get access to the piperunner mission you must capture the 
    city on the SE island. 
    Day by day:
    Day 1:
    • Move missile 1N 2W
    • Move lander 3W 1N
    • Move mech 1S 1E and load it onto the lander
    • Rocket on HQ attacks western pipe seam for 71%
    • Move eastern tank 3W and attack pipe seam for 19%
    • Remaining rocket attacks northern pipe seam for 71%
    • Move remaining tank 5N and attack pipe seam for 19%
    • Move western Md. Tank 2N 2W
    • Move western AA 3W
    • Move eastern AA 5W 1N and attack pipe seam for 13%
    • Move remaining Md. Tank 3W 2N
    • Move northern artillery 1W 4N
    • Move remaining artillery 4N
    • Move infantry 1N 1E and load onto the APC
    • Move APC 4S 2W
    Day 2:
    • Destroy the western and northern pipes with the tanks that 
    are next to them 
    • Destroy the bomber with your missiles
    • Move lander 4S 2E
    • Move northern AA 3S 2W and kill the infantry
    • Move APC 4W and drop S
    • Move northern artillery 1E 1N
    • Move both rockets 3N
    • Move remaining artillery 1E 3N
    • Move remaining AA 1S 2W
    • Move eastern Md. Tank 1N 3W
    • Move remaining Md. Tank 3N 1W and attack pipe seam for 
    • Move mech 1N
    Day 3:
    • Use missiles to kill the b-copter N of your AAs.
    • Kill the remaining b-copter with the AA 1E of it
    • Move southern Md. Tank 5W
    • Launch missile silo centered on Hawke’s western Neotank
    • Blow up the infantry above the neutral base with a 
    • Move remaining AA 1N 5W and attack the mini cannon for 
    • Move lander 4E (not 5…I do mean 4)
    • Move western tank 2W 2N and blow up the pipe seam
    • Move remaining Md. Tank 2S 1W
    • Move remaining tank 1S 1E
    From here on out what you want to do is this: Pummel all of 
    Hawke’s units that try and get through the north pipe seam. 
    Move the lander 1E and unload E, you want to take the city, 
    not the tower, but the city over the next 2 days. Continue 
    to destroy the mini cannons, but don’t destroy the last one 
    until you’ve captured that city and gotten the lab map, and 
    you should go ahead and use your COP or SCOP on a turn that 
    you’ll be able to destroy a lot of stuff for power, but be 
    very careful you don’t give Hawke another black wave or you 
    won’t be able to capture the lab map in time. 
    I suggest taking out the tank with the artillery and a mech, 
    then moving the tank in front of the mech or your indirects 
    will take a beating, and you want to be dishing it out, not 
    the other way around. 
    You should win around day 6 with a 345 point S rank.
    Mission 17: Spiral Garden (by The Rose's Thorn)
    Suggested COs: Sensei/Javier
    Sensei’s faster transports will help you to capture faster,

    • Move full health artillery 1S 4W
    • Move 6 hp artillery 4W 1N
    • Build an AA at the top base by your HQ
    For the most part day by day ends here. You want to finish 
    off the piperunners. Load the mech onto the APC and carry it 
    up toe the neutral city. Use AA and the tanks on the left to 
    take out that side, and support it with another tank 
    soon…you do not want to lose that neutral city. Use 
    artillery to deal with the Md. Tank on the right. Also build 
    an artillery on the inside of the pipe base. Later just 
    destroy random pipe seams with that artillery for extra 
    points. Don’t use megatanks on this mission; they’re too 
    slow. Keep taking cities. If you take all the neutral cities 
    except for the base up in the NE corner, and the BH ones 
    that are on your side of the pipe you will only need to take 
    1 of her base ones, which will be rather easy when you use a 
    tag break, not to mention all those mechs will help your 
    technique if you got careless. Transports are very important 
    for this map. Once you capture the airport, launch the 
    missile next to it, and then create a t-copter so you can 
    take the BH city quickly, and when you take the SW city move 
    the APC so that it’s 3 spaces above it so you can load the 
    infantry onto it, and carry it to the next BH city in one 
    turn. She will often take out the infantry capturing the BH 
    city on the east side with an artillery. To counter this 
    build an infantry at the base you have just inside the 
    pipes, and get a t-copter 3 spaces from it. Carry the 
    infantry to within 3 spaces of the city. That way when you 
    use your tag break to capture the one in her area you can 
    also take the piped in city. Sometimes she will ignore it 
    and move on, and sometimes she’ll stay and destroy the 
    infantry. If she does the latter you are screwed. A bomber 
    does a great job of breaking killing whatever unit is on the 
    other side of the pipe when you’re ready to tag capture one 
    of her cities when used alongside an artillery, so you will 
    want to buy a bomber too. On the tag break destroy as much 
    as you can for power 
    With blowing up random pipe seams you should win around day 
    14 for a 335 point S rank.

    BH Day 3:
    - Use Dual Strike (Tag Power)
    - Attack a whole lot of units, including destruction of OS 
    General Strategy (Days 4-11) : By this point, things will 
    have gotten random. Keep taking cities and destroying the 
    units near you that you've already discovered. You'll find 
    that facing BM about 5 squares to the left of the HQ are two 
    medium tanks, a mech, an APC, and an Oozium, so watch out 
    and stay at the tower or left of it and prepare your 
    indirects before you attack those. You should also capture 
    the tower while you're preparing, with the bottom mech. 
    Place the BM recon on the forest square to the 1S 1E of the 
    tower to spot the bottom medium tank's range, because if 
    you're unaware it can also hit your OS units when you 
    advance. You'll find little resistance to the south: just a 
    mech and a recon, but be aware that the northern BH units 
    can hit OS units at the bottom too. 
    When you feel like you're ready, advance! You now have far 
    more units, and far stronger units, than Kindle/Lash has. 
    You can lure a medium tank or two with an extremely injured 
    unit, since you'll need to lose a unit anyway. Advance those 
    tanks and indirects, and finish off those last two mechs, 
    APCs, and medium tanks. Lure the Oozium south so you can 
    destroy it with a combined tank force from all sides. It'll 
    be around where the mountain range ends, near the HQ. You'll 
    also find a Neotank on the HQ and another Neotank nearby, so 
    use your big tanks for those after you take out the Oozium. 
    Don't forget that you can use the missiles and/or your CO 
    powers if you feel that it's necessary, but I didn't need 
    it. Take Black Hole out by 11 days with brute force at the

    powerful unit. Keep hitting their units with both OS and BM, 
    and fire the two missiles nearby to keep their HPs low, and 
    keep capturing the towers. Just keeping attack. HP is on 
    your side, even if unit number isn't, so advance by taking 
    out everything in your area, plus use your 
    Megatank/bomber/Neotank/medium tank/stealth to attack the 
    black crystals. Use Super CO Powers when you get them too; 
    don't wait for your Tag powers. You should get them by Day 
    4. Don't worry about destroying every unit after you're down

    - Move top left mech 2N
    - Move left artillery 2S 1E

    - Move bottom artillery 1N
    - Move right artillery 2S 1W
    - Move mech above that 2N
    BH Day 1:
    - Units move
    General Strategy beyond Day 1 (Days 2-11): Finish capturing 
    the towers and help take the neutral airport with the inner 
    ring APC. Continue attacking units inside the volcanic 
    center with indirects. Move rockets up towards the volcanic 
    middle on Day 2 so you can have better aim against the other 
    units, and move right artillery 2S 1E this turn to aim for 
    outer ring BH units. As long as you can aim at anything in 
    the outer ring with a rocket or artillery from the inner 
    ring, do so. Aim missiles at the megatank and surrounding 
    units. Make sure to hit as many Neotanks/medium tanks along 
    with it as you can. The point is to try to kill as many 
    units from the outside as you can with indirects (inside is 
    second priority, since there are less units). Tag Power from 
    winning the top front should help sweep up the remaining 
    units, since Black Hole can't build very fast. 
    Bottom Front, Outer Ring:
    - Top mech 1N to capture city
    - Top infantry 1S to capture city
    - Bottom infantry 2E to capture city
    - Bottom mech 1N 1W to capture city

    General Strategy beyond Day 1 (Days 2-11): Finish capturing 
    cities and prepare to take the neutral base. After you grab 
    the airport, build as many bombers as you can to eliminate 
    the eastern front and the center. Continue destroying units 
    within the inner ring. Keep building bombers till you take 
    out the entire front! Tag Power from winning the top front 
    should help. 
    Top Front:
    - Start capturing towers with the two mechs
    - Move all other units towards the volcano but not within 
    the volcanic square area 
    General Strategy Day 1 and beyond: Advance battle copters 
    and A-Air, and the rocket to near the mountain range. Use 
    the mechs to capture the towers, and do not advance to the 
    volcanic center. Let the battle copters and Neotank get into 
    your range. They'll arrive Day 2, so then you send in your 
    A-Air and battle copters to wipe out most of the BH air 
    force in one day. You might also want to surround the 
    Neotank so it doesn't run from your rocket's range. After 
    you rid the Neotank and battle copters, take out the mechs 
    in the middle OUTSIDE of the plains in the middle (use shoal 
    or cities so you won't get hit by the volcano), and then 
    march towards the rocket. After you take it out (about Day 
    10), you've got a Tag Power down below! 
    That was easy!
