General

Flak (Known as Kong 「コング」 in the original and Helmut in European version of the game) is a Black Hole CO. First appearing in Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, where he is ordered to take out Orange Star. He was originally a low ranking soldier, but was promoted to his current rank by Hawke from private. Flak's helmet is based off German helmets and Max calls him an ape man. Flak's ability and CO powers focus on taking the chance to deal more damage, but at the risk of also dealing less damage than normal. This is called Dispersion. At first appearance, he resembles Jugger a lot, because they have the similar abilities, and their CO power and even their Super CO power are almost identical. Flak's abilities rely solely on luck, so it might be advisable to equip him with the Luck-Skill.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising

CO abilities

His Units have high Dispersion range. They can do up to 15% extra damage or 10% less damage.

CO power

Brute Force - Further increases Dispersion range. His Units can do up to 40% more damage, or they might do 20% less damage. His Units also gets a 10% bonus to defence.

Super CO power

Barbaric Blow - Greatly increases Dispersion. His Units are able to do up to 80% bonus damage or they may end up with 30% damage reduction. His Units also gets a 10% bonus to defence.

Advance Wars: Dual Strike

CO abilities

His Units have high Dispersion range. They can do as much as 25% more damage or they can do 10% less damage.

CO power

Brute Force - Further increases Dispersion range. His Units can do up to 50% more damage, or they might do 20% less damage. Additionally, his Units get a 10% Offence and Defence.

Super CO power

Barbaric Blow - Greatly increases Dispersion. His Units are able to do up to 90% bonus damage or they may end up with 40% damage reduction. Also a 10% bonus to offence and defence.

Tag Breaks

Flak has Tag Breaks with the following COs:

  • Lash, 110%, "Bruise Cruise" (1 star)
  • Adder, 105%

Tactics

In both games, he is inferior to Nell. His day to day abilities, on average, have higher risk than Nell's yet yield little advantage in Dual Strike and no advantage in Advance Wars 2.

His Super CO Power (even before it was buffed in Dual Strike) doesn't provide as much of a damage bonus as Nell's and it comes with a potential damage penalty that Nell does not have.

Generally, he faces the same problem as the other luck-based CO's do in competitive play ; combat-based powers are situational as they do not affect units which aren't engaged in combat that turn.
