Hello there. My name is Camon Valdez and I am an Armored Core 2 Fan to say the least. The purpose of this little guide is to help you soar through the rankings in the arena, and accomplish the many missions throughout the game as easily and efficiantly as possible. Enjoy. Table of Contents Section 1......................... Introduction Section 2......................... Building your robot Section 3......................... Maximizing your performance Section 4......................... Prepping for Missions Section 5......................... Legal Stuff Section1 Alright, so something called "The Great Destruction" has occurred on Earth in the future. People still live there but heck, why not go to Mars instead. Mercenaries called Ravens, pilot Huge combat perfromance enhancing "Battle Bots" Called Armored Cores.... AC for short. Anyway, now that people wanna be moving to Mars and all, they gotta have huge businesses handle things like altering the atmosphere and employing people right? Well that means that some businisses are gonna have some aggressive business with other businesses who are minding their own business right? In other words This game is about you being hired to fight for certain corporations in order for them to gain power on a planet that is new to Mankind. Got that? Good. Let's get started then. Section2 Now, the fun part. What more could you ask for than a chance to build your own robot and then use it to wreak havoc upon the weak and helpless? Well duh... money. If you don't have money on this game, you can't do shizzle. So go to the arena and win enough money to buy the double back weapon that "Launches verticle missles with multiple warheads". It is blue and it doesn't look all that great, but trust me, it does more damage than Godzilla in Tokyo. Now, you have three robots to build, but i suggest sticking with one for now until you become very wealthy. Custimize your AC for nothing but speed. Sell every part that you are not using and use the money to buy a pair of fast legs and very small arms. Buy a light Torso and ditch your right and left arm weapons, you won't be needing them. Section3 In order to maximize your performance, get some Viagra. In order to master handling your AC, read this. Your booster is your lifeline. You can get way better results if you just quickly tap the X button instead of holding it down. So, in order to "Maximize your performance", you're gonna need some cheese, money ,green, dead presidents. In order to get money, you need to win all the arena matches. No problem. Using the AC I described earlier, challenge somebody and go to "Etal Base" to fight them. As soon as the match starts, fly yourself up to one of the platforms way up in the air. Then lock on to the sitting duck with your back weapon that I also described earlier and empty it on the poor sucker. Actually, they will be dead within 3-4 hits depending on your rate of fire. Repeat this process until you are at number 1 in the arena. Then, Save your game and cut the system off, run outside and scream "WHO'S YOUR DADDY!!!" Trust me this technique works on every single challenger in the arena. Section4 Well, Now that you are the number 1 ranked Raven in the arena, you are also the richest dude on Mars and you can afford any weapon you want, except you could buy 50 of them if you wanted. So now you can build your 3 AC's with no problems. Now i suggest starting a mission after reading the breifing to see if it requires speed, endurance, or both. You should build 3 AC's, each with one of those characteristics. Build one big daddy, massive, bulky, butt kicking AC. Build a speedy little Micheal Johnson AC with formidable fire power. Then, build an AC that is just right like Goldy lox's pouridge. A balance between speed and power is what you always need to have with at least one of your AC's. So now you are ready for anything right? No, sit your cocky butt down. You are still gonna have to make some changes in order to beat this game. Just add a little more firepower, speed or durability to any of the AC's whenever a mission calls for it and your set. Section 5 Ok, this document is the work of Camon Valdez and nobody else.
