Our central character initially known as C4-621 embarks on an extraordinary journey. After an unauthorized landing on Rubicon 3 C4-621 adopts the call sign of a fallen mercenary “Raven.” The promise of a fresh start and a chance at redemption entices Raven to take on dangerous mercenary missions.

The Synopsis of Armored Core 6

Raven’s journey is one of danger as they are smuggled onto Rubicon 3 by their handler Walter. On this planet, Raven assumes the identity of “Raven” and infiltrates a multi-faceted conflict. The battle lines are drawn between mega-corporations like Balam Industries and Arquebus Corp, the anti-corporation Rubicon Liberation Front (RLF), and the Planetary Closure Administration (PCA), all wanting control over the elusive Coral.

Throughout numerous battles, Raven forms unexpected alliances with fellow mercenaries Rusty and “Cinder” Carla. These relationships provide both assistance and camaraderie amidst the chaos. In an extraordinary twist, Raven makes contact with Ayre, a mysterious woman who can communicate directly with Raven’s mind.

As the plot thickens, Walter detects an unusual concentration of Coral at the Central Ice Field, hinting at a massive deposit hidden beneath. This discovery prompts Balam and Arquebus to unite against the common threat of the PCA. The ensuing battles involve military forces and Coral superweapons, plunging Rubicon 3 further into turmoil.
