The Armored Core series is best known for its in-depth
customization. Here are some ACs that can achieve a "Great"
Rating. I use these ACs, some maybe they can help you.
Note: These cost about 1Mil each, so its best to save up.
Default Name: Patriarch
Default Color: Base, Detail and Joint color: Blue 200, Green
100. Optional and Aid color- White.
Back Units- MWC-LQ/15(L)
Arm Unit R- MWG-MG/1000
Arm Unit L- MLB-MOONLIGHT
This is a Heavy AC, specializing in Defense AND Offense.
This is my Personal Core.
Default Name: Poltergeist
Default Color- Head and Left Arm- Black. Legs and Right Arm-
75 Red (For all). Core- Just mix them up.
Back Units- MWC-LQ/15(x2)
Arm Unit R- None
Arm Unit L- None
This is great for those mobility lovers. It excels in its
speed, but lacks defense. The SAMURAI2 arms take off a lot
Default Name: Catalyst
Default Color- Grey(100 Blue, Red, Green) for everything.
Back Units- MWC-LQ/15(R)
Arm Unit R- MWG-RF/300
Arm Unit L- MLB-HALBERD
This AC is very balanced, both quick and tough, it tackles
the missions that require both skill and strength.
Note- You can change any part, or name, or color. These are
Defeating 3 ACs.:
Okay, there's (in my opinion) a very tough mission, in which
you need to fight 3 ranking ACs without a break. The first
AC, you fight alone, so he's not that tough, but its on an
elevator, and you start out on the bottom, while he starts
on top. Get the height advantage and he'll be a pushover.
The next two are very tough, because you need to fight them
together. I had a little plan of my own, tough.
Buy a Chain gun for your back weapon (for either side or
both), and get into the nearest corner. The corner may not
seem like such a nice place, but since one AC comes in the
fight slightly later, and from the back, it can prove VERY
effective. It proves effective, because the strategy for
most computer ACs is to get behind you and attack.
In the corner, you can see AND attack everything.
Defeating the Mystery AC:
In one of the last levels, you'll encounter an AC that
doesn't look like an AC at all. It looks like some sort of
Winged-Metal Angel. An angel is the last thing you'll
consider it after seeing what it can do. With unheard of
power and agility, it can leave opponents devastated. A good
hint on beating it is to NOT RUN SHORT ON FUEL. Don't use EO
cores, because oncew you run out, you're a sitting duck. He
uses swords, so for those who think they're quick enough to
dodge it, think again!
Defeating the super ACs.:
Okay, there will be a few mission where you wll encounter
some giant-sized AC, with an enormous gun. These are pretty
hard to defeat, but some tips can make him much easier.
1- When he shoots at you with his semi-auto rocket launcher,
stafle in any clear direction. If you have any speed at all,
you should barely outrun it, without getting hurt. Shoot him
while you're stafling to inflict major damage.
2- Despite his size and strength, these super ACs are very
fast, so Beam Sabers aren't very effective unless they come
3- Don't let his size intimidate you. He may be big, but
Defend Lawdas Factory mission: Hidden part:
When the big laser destroys the missile in the center of the
map, jump down and look for the part. The part is an
Defend Mirage HQ mission: Hidden part:
When the mission starts, turn around and boost towards the
helicopter landing site. Look around the landing site to
find the back stealth missile, MWM-SM36.
Defend Solar Power Plant mission: Hidden Part:
After you defeat all the enemies on the outside of the power
plant, you should get a notice about enemies inside the
plant after you enter. Clear the first floor. When you go
down the ramp at the end of the first part, you will see a
fork. Go to the left. There should be the part at the end of
the room. The room is on fire. The hidden part is the
Destroy AI Prototype mission: Hidden part:
On the ground in a small room closed off by destroyable
gates is the left arm part KSS-SS/707A.
Destroy Cargo Transport mission: Hidden part:
Use a very fast AC for this mission. When you see the first
intersection, instead of turning right with the transport,
turn left and jump behind the middle barricade and get the
part. It is the inside floating mine, CWI-FMHS-30.
Easy Arena wins:
Select the Trene City area. When the battle begins, there is
a big building directly in the middle of the Arena floor.
Boost up to the top of the building and pummel the opponent
AC full of rockets or other types of ammunition that can
lock on. If you are unable to boost up the entire way, there
is a ledge halfway up. Rest there momentarily, then boost
the rest of the way. Weapons that are the most effective are
the small rockets and/or vertical missiles. There are some
enemies that are too fast to do this to; they move to much
to get a lock on. If this happens, when you start, boost
West and position yourself in between two buildings very
close to the border. Most of the enemy ACs will not go
behind because they will lose. They will just move back and
forth trying to get a fix, but will not approach you if you
are very close to the border. Pop in and out from behind the
building and shoot various rockets and missiles as the ACs
are moving around. It is slightly time consuming, but a very
easy way to boost ranks early. Take your opponent to the
Arena stage. Have Hectos Rockets and the left hand grenade
launcher equipped. When the battle starts, start stepping
backwards, making sure not to turn or alter where the aimer
is pointed. Switch weapons to the Hectos Rockets and keep
firing those with the grenade launchers. The opponent will
just follow your steps, and will not move from the line of
fire. If they get too close, start to fight normally; they
will have low AP at this point.
Find any mission that has an advance payment. Start the
mission and immediately abort it. After this is done, you
will see your earnings displayed in two boxes. One box is
for your new money amount that was earned and one for the
deductions for repairs, ammunition, and the special
deduction in the event that something was destroyed that was
not supposed to. Note that there is no deduction, and you
will get the amount that was promised to you in advance.
Make sure to save your game before you do this, as the game
will end if this is done too many times.
Eliminate Bio Weapon mission: Hidden part:
At the first room, turn left and keep shooting all over the
wall. When you reveal a secret passage, follow it to the
part. It is a PRAYYING BLADE.
Eliminate Rioters mission: Hidden part:
When you reach the most top level and enter, a box will be
destroyed by enemies. On the floor is the inside part
Explore Unexplored Region mission: Hidden part:
Go into the crater to find a plane. Shoot the back end of
the plane to destroy that section. Inside the plane is the
back part MWC-OC/30.
Infiltrate New Base mission: Hidden part:
In a cave in the middle of the map is the extension part
Go to the first door, unlock the control panel, then search
for the second one. In the room where there is a ventilation
duct, shoot the duct. Fly up, then go down into the other
room it leads to. Destroy all the boxes to find the left arm
Protect Part Transport mission: Hidden parts:
Wait until the plane lands, then get behind the it. Shoot
the back end until the door explodes. Press Circle next to
the part to get the right arm part CWG-ARF-180. When the
mission starts, turn around and go to the left storage room.
Go inside and get the part. It is the left grenade rifle
If you use a certain type of leg part (light weight leg,
middle weight leg, hover, etc.) for enough missions, a
"prototype" part will be unlocked in the shop. The
prototypes are usually good. This may also be the case with
other parts as well.
Search Vilius Laboratory mission: Hidden part:
Search the bottom of the deepest pit to find a part guarded
by a MT. It is the left arm part MWG-KPL/150.
Secure Fortress NK-432 mission: Hidden parts:
Find the room filled with lots of boxes. Do not destroy any
boxes with red triangles or any boxes on top of red triangle
boxes (the top box destroys the one under it, etc.). The
right arm part MWG-GS/80 can now be found on the ground. Use
your map near the first target to find a secret passage
behind the wall. Destroy that part of the wall and follow
the secret passage until you reach a room with one box.
Destroy the box to find the head part MHD-MX/BEE
Here are some tips that can help you wallet and AC do
1- Don't be stingy. You can sell parts back for as high as
you bought them, even if used.
2- The best stuff doesn't always cost the most! The cheapest
heavy leg type is better than the most expensive in most
3- The best weapons and parts don't come til a new stock, or
some arena advancements, so don't use the AI until they've
These can really help any new AC3SL player.
Takeover New Fortress mission: Hidden part:
When you battle against the two ACs fly up into the giant
hole in the ceiling. When you look up, there should be a
pipe that runs from one side to the other. On top of the
pipe is the FCS part PLS-SRA02.
When you get your first payment, don't go spending it on
some cheap, slightly better part. The first thing any pilot
needs to buy is the gun of his/her choice. Trust me, I use
everything from Machine Guns to Rocket Launchers. The
starting rifel is basically useless, so get rid of it ASAP.
Warnings and Tips:
There are some things your AC may need to be aware of at any
time during a mission or Arena battle.
1- If you have an Exceed Orbit (EO) core, launching the pods
can increase your heat, so if your AC is not good with heat,
use this wisely.
2- Never equip a vertical missle and a missle canceller.
Once you launch the missle, it'll just blow up.
3- OB-INTENSIFY may increase all abilities, but damage will
4- On certain arena battles, Trene City is not the answer.
If someone relies on a vertical missle, or anything that
requires height, use the parking lot arena to your
advantage. (Ex- Carom)
5- Your opponent can actually shoot your weapon out of your
hand, so look out.
6- In the Arena, if small missles annoy you, go to Trene
City, and rather than scaling the huge building, climb on
top of one of the walkways leading to one of the smaller
buildings and stay there. You will still at times get hit,
but not nearly enough to kill you.
Almost all weapon arms can be used in two ways.
ex: SAMURAI2 can be used not only as a sword, but as a wave
ex: Certain guns can switch from rapid fire mode to heavy
fire mode, which launches a more powerful, bigger, slower
