Mission: 30 Battle Tactics
You can, w/ relative ease, annihilate the
hovering AC guarding the "Security System" @ the
commencement of Mission: 30 w/ little or no
damage. The moment you begin the mission,
you'll find your AC on an elevated catwalk. The
enemy AC is @ the very bottom level guarding the
access point to the primary objective. DO NOT
just jump from the catwalk to rapidly reach the
bottom for a "Faceoff w/ the guard; as he/she
will unload an armor-piercing staccato of fire
upon you before you ever reach the bottom.
Instead, @ two varying points; there are
platforms....Use these to safely "Turbo-Hop"
your descent to the enemy. Afterward, position
yourself to execute one final Turbo Boost to
swiftly arrive @ the access point. W/O giving
the enemy time to consider your actions, open
the door; get inside & allow them to close
behind you. While you are repositioning
yourself to face the doors, the enemy AC will be
continuously darting back & forth in front of
the doors on the outside. This is merely a ploy
to waste your ammunition stores....DON'T fall
for it! Here's the deal. After you've unlocked
the doors, just continue to move close enough to
them to keep them from resealing. Eventually,
the enemy AC will pass through the opening in an
attempt to eliminate the threat....YOU! Move
quickly back from the doors so that they'll
close entirely. Now you have the enemy AC right
where you want him....In close-quarters. The
confinement restricts the enemy AC's ability to
jet about & evade your assult. Now switch to
your strongest weapon & destroy the foe! I
accomplished this w/ my shoulder-mounted grenade
launcher that I brought over w/ me from AC2
through the data conversion option offered @
the onset of loading AC2:AA.
Mission: 32 - Tactics
This one's way simplified. Immediately upon being jettison from the helo's transport area. Ignite & maintain FULL Overboost. NOTE: Do Not wait to hit the ground. Execute full thrust as soon as your free-fall begins! This will propel your AC to the perimeter of the engagement zone where you can pick off the enemy one-by-one as they approach your 20 (i.e.; your position).
Hidden Part 1
Area: Horwick Mountains. Mission: Attack the Airbase. Fly over the first mountain, do this pretty quick so as not too take to much damage
from the flying MT's. Look down in between the first and second mountain, you will see
a landing pad with with lights on it and a door on the side of the second mountain. Fly
to it as best you can, but watch your energy. Enter the door, and go through to the
elevator. Once you reach the top look about 10 degrees to your left, you will see two
boxes in a corner, the part should be in one of those.
To return to the default view, pause the game, then press Start to resume the game.
(when using the fixed camera view or first person)
Hidden Part 5
Area: Colnart Bay City. Mission: Probe Balena's Defenses. You must stick around until the operator says the "I'll let you determine..." phrase. If that doesn't work try to stick around till ya get 50 kills or around 100k Reward.
Hidden Part 4
Area: Rapture. Mission: Destroy Security Detail. Destroy every enemy and then finally destroy the flying MT in the last room, thats were the part can be found.
Hidden Part 3
Area: Eyelet City. Mission: Test New MT Model. You must do this mission REALLY fast. My best suggestion is the missle pack that
shoots off 4 missle packs, get to the top of the building and launch em off toward the
enemies, hop down and finish off whats left real quick. Fast legs help too. You will
know you got it when the radio person says "We have an extra bonus for your efforts."
Or something like that.
Hidden Part 2
Area: Scissors Forest. Mission: Escort AC Parts Transport. You just weaken the transport quite a bit, destroy the enemy AC, and while the dialogue box is up quickly destroy the transport and swipe the part. It only took me a few tries.
Destroy an enemy AC during a mission to unlock
its emblem in emblem edit mode.
Successfully complete the game, save your data,
then load the saved data. You can now access
three new high-paying missions where you face
Stinger in his AC (from Armored Core: Project
Phantasma), Phantasma (who Stinger had merged
with), and Final Nine-Ball (from Armored Core:
Master Of Arena). All three new missions are very
tough. However, you can go overweight for all
these missions. After defeating all three, you
will get some very fast hover legs, and
an "Inside" orbit cannon.
