Armored Core Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

More Weapon Locations

There is a laser sword in the "defeat struggle leader". In that level there is a booby trap that makes you fall really far. At the end of the tunnel, there is a laser sword. It's stronger then any of the other ones. There is a generator in the "destroy plus escapee" mission. As your coming up the elevator,there are ledges to the left, and to the right. Jump on to the one on the right. Jump down to the ledge below it. There it is.

Weapon Locations

-When you can choose from the first two levels choose the one that is $13000 
jump behind the tanks that are behind you. There should be a rocket launcer 
(without the lock on function)

-At the "Destroy the fuel depot" mission, at the very end, there is a place where 
there are a lot of fuel tanks. When you destroy them at the right corner there is 
the kawasaki gun (a very valuable, strong and good gun with 50 shot that doesn't 
cost you a buck)

-At the "Guard Fright Train" mission there are a lot of crates( shouldn't be hard 
to find). In one of the crates is a head. (the same that nine-ball uses)

-In the "Retake air cleaner" look in the hallways that are located in the 
ceiling. There are gates blocking you but you can destroy those gates with one 
shot. At the end of one of those hallways you'll find a dual missle shooter. (it 
has a ammo count of 60 but shoots 6 at one time but is still pretty good)

-At the mission where you have to guard the radar. When it starts turn backwards
(180 degrees). Shoot open the door and you'll have a radar( decent radar but it 
will abort the mission)


An easy way to defeat Nine-ball is to wait. When you make it to the hole in the floor run up to it and when Nine-ball says his lines move back and wait. It takes awhile but he'll show. He is easier to defeat this way than to just run out like a moron and fight him.

Good Ac

Here is an description of two ac I really like.

No 1

Overall a good ac except when there are a lot of (little) enemies. But good speed 
and manouverability and good against strong enemies like ravens and other ac's.

HD-ONE          A HEAD
XCL-01          A CORE
AN-25           THE ARMS
QX-9009         FCS
B-V-VR-33       BOOSTER
XCS-9900        BACK WEAPONS

No 2
Also an overall ac but also for a lot of enemies but sometimes difficult against 
really strong enemies like ravens or other ac. Because of it's lack of 

HD-ONE                      A HEAD
XCL-01                      A CORE
AN-25                       THE ARMS
LC-MOS4545                  THE LEGS
GBG-XR                      THE GENERATOR
QX-9009                     FCS
WG-B2180                    RIGHT ARM WEAPON

Death Bonuses

Intentionally die with less than -50,000 credits. Then, the game will restart from the first level with all items gained in the previous game. If done correctly, your pilot name will change to "Rebel" followed by three random numbers. The first time this is done, the radar will become a grid system and will detect incoming missiles. The fourth time this is done, the rear weapon may be fired while in motion. The sixth time that this is done, available energy will be doubled. Additionally, a ball may be fired from the laserblade by firing the blade, then pressing Jump.

No Limit Bonus

Complete over 100 sorties with a greater than 90% win record and an over all rating of 98% or more. Then, unlimited leg weight points, core weight points, and generator output points will be allowed. Note: Ignore the overweight warning.

Return To Default View

To return to the default view, pause the game, then press Start to resume the game. For the Japanese version of the game, press Select instead of Start.

After You Win

After you beat the game you will be asked to save. Do this but if you didn't defeat nine-ball twice you'd better not overwrite your prevous game or you will never become raven number one. When you load the game again you will have acces to all the levels in the game. The last ac battle is a real money maker if you use the kawasaki gun.
