With Armored Core 6 launching in a few days, players, old and new, have been wondering how the game would be in terms of gameplay, and lore, and to see what it looks like when battling out with other players in the PVP mode.

This Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown is divided into three parts just like the Showcase Livestream:

What can fans of the Franchise expect from Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon?

For Old Fans, there hasn’t been a new Armored Core for almost 10 years. Changes are gonna be apparent from graphical fidelity, combat, and the customization and assembly of their own Armored Core.

Players can still change their mech on a such deep level that recognition of the specs involved can help them have a leg up against the competition.

New Fans of the franchise might find the game overwhelming at first. Armored Core is a vastly different game compared to Elden Ring, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls.

It still retains a feeling that this is a FromSoftware game so it is going to be challenging to play, but respects your time and effort, and the tools that you need to succeed are given.

In this Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown, Armored Core/Mech Customization is featured, from switching different parts of the Armored Core to suit your playstyle to colors and decals you can equip.

Starting from decals and colors, you can pick colors to choose from and you can also change colors on specific parts of the Armored Core. Change the materials of the parts, make them shine or rusty, and add patterns.

A notable feature in Armored Core 6 is that players can also share their Armored Core builds. Players can help other players who are struggling like lacking mobility, or firepower to a specific boss or level. It is also a way to showcase your own Armored Core to other players.

One thing to look after is the Legs part of the Armored Core. It changes the gameplay entirely, it would feel like playing an entirely different game compared to the previous parts you equipped.

There are different types of leg parts. From Bipedal, which are the standard Armored Core/Mech legs that let the players move quickly across the battlefield. Reverse Joint Legs make the Armored Core jump really high. Quad legs or Tetrapods as it is called allow for an Armored Core to hover in the air. And the Tank Legs which give a literal tank approach and tremendous firepower setups.

Tips to consider for players reading this Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown who are not used to the 360-degree movement. Leg types behave differently. Reverse joint legs give players vertical mobility, Tetrapods can hover, and Tanks lack mobility but can take more damage. Try out different Armored Core parts and find what works for you, the player. If you are struggling with a level, you can switch out some parts and try again. The cycle of mixing and matching parts to finish a mission gives a lot of fun and enjoyment to players, the possibilities are endless and that is given to the players.

Weapon variety is also a thing to pay attention to. There are different weapons to choose from in this Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown.

The Linear Rifle can be charged to do extra damage and deal with enemies at long distances.

The Gatling Gun is for multiple, weaker targets, and it also gives a stagger to enemies so your damage output is consistent, not to mention a lot of bullets going down range.

Missle Launchers can give tremendous amounts of damage and can lock on to targets.

Pile Bunkers can dish out a staggering amount of damage in the melee range of combat.

There are a ton of weapon options and Armored Core Parts to choose from to make an Armored Core suited to your needs.

Balancing the equipment load, energy output, and weight in customization helps to know what parts to choose and what parts to consider to have a balance in aspects of mobility, firepower, and toughness.

On the side of gameplay in the Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown, don’t be discouraged when your Armored Core explodes or dies. You can restart the whole mission or you can restart from a recent checkpoint that you encountered before dying. It gives the player all of the ammunition and restores your Armored Core to full. It is a game where if you fall or fail a mission, you can get back up and try again.

If you want to change your Armored Core, or parts of your Armored Core like your weapons after dying to a difficult part of a mission or a boss fight, you can change that by going to the Assembly. Adapting and changing an Armored Core is a huge aspect of Armored Core 6.

Terrain is also helpful if you get stuck on a part of a mission. You can use the environment to your advantage such as fuel canisters or explosives scattered throughout an industrial complex level.

Chests are also scattered around levels. Similar to the older games of the franchise, you can find chests in certain levels that contain Armored Core parts to items that you can’t buy in the shop.

Areas before a boss battle, you can locate a ‘Supply Sherpa’. It gives the player all of the Armored Core’s ammunition and repairs it as well to full.

Boss battles are difficult, but not impossible, adapting and learning where the weak spots are and the movement of the enemy is also crucial. If the boss or an enemy is dangerous on the melee range, you can switch your Armored Core to focus on ranged firepower and mobility to dwindle it down. Having knowledge of weak spots also helps players how to deal with enemies. Hitting a weak spot on a boss can cause significant damage that makes the boss encounter much easier.

In this Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown, Players will be able to participate in PvP combat in either 1v1 or 3v3, with battles lasting five minutes and the team that causes the most damage winning. Players that are killed during a match can respawn.

Players fight over a variety of areas in PvP. From wide, open areas of warehouses, and underground complexes, to close-quarters city areas with buildings and skyscrapers. Fighting players on a wide selection of maps can bring out the strengths and flaws of each Armored Core, from leg parts to weapons. And using the terrain to your advantage can also help turn the tide from losing to winning.

A tip to players in this Complete Armored Core 6 Showcase Breakdown for PvP is to communicate or coordinate with your teammates. Having good coordination with your teammates can help you focus fire on a difficult Armored Core opponent, to know if you are straying too far away from the team and might be in danger of enemy fire, or if you are staying too far behind that you are not giving the necessary fire support your team needs.

Another tip in general is to have a control scheme that is comfortable for you, the player. From using the presets to doing a custom one. Having a control scheme that is comfortable to you where every button is specifically tied to something you would use can make a difference.
