Christmas Map Pack 2022 by Kartal

Hack of Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising


This Christmas map pack features reworked/reimagined/AI improved/harder (at least 1 of those apply) versions of Advance Wars 2 maps, and Advance Wars 1’s The Final Battle map with Advance Wars 2 COs selectable (each having a custom pre-deployed army).

The AI improvement in general entails:

  • MdTanks and Subs attack first instead of last
  • Evasive air units (won’t always suicide move into your attack range)
  • Better unit deployment priorities
  • Maps arranged to help the AI (neutral properties not placed in a way to lead the AI away from the important zones, etc.)

The maps reworked are:

  • Jet-Black Forest (The Final Battle)
  • Orange Dawn
  • Toy Box
  • Silo Scramble
  • To The Rescue (now a Sonja map in fog, replacing Showstopper)
  • Sea Fortress (with Drake’s navy vs Hawke’s air force and navy)

The maps are accessible from Campaign mode. A very special bonus mission unlocks after beating all other maps.

Update 1.1: A tiny mistake on the bonus map was fixed.
