Piloting an AC requires as much battlefield-specific knowledge as you can get your hands on. To truly get to grips with these complex machines, you’ll need to learn the finer points of EN management, target acquisition, direct hits, ricochets and many other systems. We break everything down and provide full explanations of each of the 100+ specs that affect your performance.
With a gigantic list of AC parts and upgrades to acquire and install, the wealth of options can overwhelm even experienced pilots. Each weapon and part comes with its own array of specs, and the potential for customization is almost endless. Learn exactly how every part works and gain the knowledge to build your ideal AC.
We’ve laid each of the game’s 59 missions bare across 200 pages of step-by-step walkthroughs, with detailed maps showing optimal routes and anything of value clearly highlighted. Our recommended builds cater for all playstyles; whether you’re sneakily scavenging or attempting a full-on assault, we’ll get you through unscathed.
If you hope to outmaneuver corporate hit squads and go toe-to-toe with elite independent mercenaries, your survival will depend on knowing your opponent’s capabilities. Learn their behavior, attacks and weaknesses then adjust your AC’s loadout and tactics according to the battle at hand.
