Advance Wars: Dual Strike
War Room Guide

Map 32: Rabbit Island



Score achieved: 300 pts, 9 days
100-pt. time limit: 22 days
Player CO: Anyone except Max or Kanbei
Enemy CO(s): Drake, Eagle
Skills: none
Mode: 2.5x EXP

Overview: Send 2 loaded APCs towards Drake's and Eagle's HQs. Damage Drake's units in order to drain his funds through repairs so that he can't build units that can threaten your HQ capture.

Sensei can finish this map 1 day earlier because of his transport boost. Follow the walkthrough except for APC movements. Move your APCs as far as they can go every day. You will be able to reach Eagle's HQ at the same time that you reach Drake's HQ. Move the Infantry onto the mountains next turn.

On Day 8, if you haven't destroyed 3 units yet, you must destroy Drake's Mech and Artillery BEFORE capturing his HQ. If you capture his HQ first, those targets will disappear.

For full Power, you need to destroy 3 units in 1 day. This can be accomplished with most bland COs on Day 7, but it will require a lot of luck. COs which get a boost for their Artilleries and Rockets can get Power on Day 7, but without luck abuse, other COs will get Power on Day 8 instead.

For full Technique, you can lose up to 2 units, but you should not lose any units at all.

Kanbei cannot follow this guide because of higher deployment costs. Max cannot follow this guide because of his reduced indirect range.
