Survival is a gamemode in Advance Wars: Dual Strike. In this gamemode, you have a limit that you must not exceed to survive.

There are three survival modes: Money, Turn, and Time, each having 11 maps. The Basic Course of each goes through all maps once, while the Champion Course has an infinite number of maps, unlocked after clearing the Basic Course. They each cost 1000 points.

Note: The ranks are not quite accurate, so this is an estimation.
