Once you’ve mastered how to win Mission 12, remaining battles with Kanbei are relatively easy. But his daughter, Sonja, is a whole different story. That’s why we need to find out how to win Mission 15 in Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp asap.
Why is Sonja such a difficult adversary? It’s because of her CO Power; Enhance Vision allows Sonja to see the battlefield in unique ways, ways which are going to hurt your Units.
Figuring out how to negate her ability is difficult, even more so because you can’t choose which Orange Star CO to use when battling her. That’s right, whether you like it or not, in this fight you have to use Max.
But never fear, I’m here with a way to win Mission 15. And despite Max struggling with distances, he can still devastate Sonja’s army if you take your time.
How To Win Mission 15 In Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp
To win Mission 15, you need to head to the enemy HQ, using your Recon to clear Fog of War patches. Move your Units up and across the map, ensuring you’re out of the enemy’s attack range.
Working out the attack range in this battle is tricky because Sonja’s Enhance Vision means she can see into forests (which usually provide cover), and all her Units gain an increased attack range of one space.
All in all, Sonja is the queen of Fog of War, and will use that prowess to annihilate you… if you let her.
The key to winning this mission is to move slowly, taking your time to access each area before moving any of your soldiers. You also want to move in two directions across the map, to allow multiple routes to the enemy HQ.
There’s no Factories here to replenish lost Units, meaning you have to make every move count.
Although distance isn’t Max’s strong point, he’s brilliant at head on combat – when the enemy is within range, use his CO Power and hit them where it hurts!
My plan of attack is by no means foolproof, but it’ll secure you another victory nonetheless. Now you know how to win Mission 15 in Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp, it’s time to put those skills to the test in Mission 16.
