CC-9699 was first commissioned during the First Battle of Geonosis, when he and his squadmates were entrusted with capturing the Glantorin Spire, which had become a Separatist hotspot. They were succesful in infiltrating through the spire's airducts, and they utilized probe droids to make up for where they lacked in men. They were able to complete the mission without any loss of life, and, after completely seizing the spire, called in reinforcements. Flash Squad then went onto the battle field to join the rest of the troops. CC-0888 was called away when Commander Jock got shot in the chest.
