AW2 Classic Campaign – Mission 1: Cleanup

A new enemy has planted its flag on Orange Star soil. Face off with Black Hole’s troops, and drive them all out!

Mission Strategy

This mission is your first mission against the Black Hole CO Flak. Flak’s units have a chance to deal up to 25% more to 10% less damage. This chance is based on a random number generator (RNG). Even if you play the mission exactly the same, the RNG will change the outcomes. He has no specific specialty units and not specific weakness.

His CO Power increases the RNG to a range of +50% to -20% while also giving his units a guaranteed +10 to offense and defense. His Super CO Power greatly increases the RNG to a range of +90% to -30% while still giving the same +10% offense and defense.

Defeat All Enemies: This is the easier and faster option. Be sure to check the range of the enemy units. Holding B over a direct-fire enemy unit will show you how far it can attack based on how far it can move. Holding B over an indirect-fire unit will show the unit’s attack range since it needs to not move in order to attack.

Check the attack range of Flak’s forces, and make sure you get the first hit when possible. Stay out of range of Flak’s Artillery and use your APC to pull enemies into the range of your Artillery and you’ll wipe out the enemy forces with ease.

HQ Capture: HQ capture is possible, but you will have to go past Flak’s forces anyway. Use your APC to speed up your Mech or Infantry. Be sure to not let the APC be destroyed while your unit is in it. Remember that since the enemy AI loves to attack APCs, you can use your APC to draw fire away from your capturer.
