Armored Core 6 Arena [All To Know]

This guide will cover everything you need to know about using the Arena in Armored Core 6, including all the Opponents and Rewards.

Armored Core 6 Arena

The Arena is a Combat Training Program designed by the A.I. System in Armored Core 6, ALLMIND. Moreover, this Program contains battle simulations against all the key Armored Cores you have faced in the Story. Participating in the Arena will grant you OST Chips, COAM, Emblems, and other Rewards to customize your Armored Core.

You can replay Arena Matches repeatedly to quickly get COAM if you are confident in your combat ability. However, you can’t farm other rewards like OST Chips as they are unique to each mission. The same goes for Emblems and Enemy Armored Core Data Presets.

Key Takeaways

  • You can access the Arena from the Garage to fight against the Armored Cores you defeated before for COAM, OST Chips, Emblems, and Armored Core Data Presets.
  • There are 29 Arena Matches with the Ranks S, A, B, C, D, E, and F.
  • You can unlock the VVC-700LD Laser Drone Weapon to complete all the Arena Matches.
  • You can access 12 more ‘Analysis‘ Arena Matches in NG+ and NG++.
  • You unlock the HC-2000/BC SHADE EYE Head Part for completing all the NG+ Arena Matches. You also unlock a new Part for each new Arena Match you complete in NG++.

Analysis Matches

After you start NG+ and progress through the game, you can open the Arena in Armored Core 6 again to see the change in U.I. All the previous 29 Arena Match Encounters are under the ‘Records’ Tab. At the same time, a newly introduced tab called ‘Analysis.’ ‘Analysis’ is the NG+ variant of the Arena and uses Greek Letters and Numbers to represent the new Matches.

This is unlike the English Alphabet and Numbers used for the Arena Matches in NG+. You will be rewarded with the HC-2000/BC SHADE EYE Head Part if you complete all these Arena Matches.

Here is a list of all the ‘Analysis’ Arena Matches and how to unlock them.

My Experience With Arena Mode

Personally, I think that the Arena Mode is a great way for you to exercise your attacking strategies on training mechs so that you are ready on the battlefield. Additionally, you can get new weapons and mech parts by completing Arena missions. Therefore, I strictly advise you to complete all Arena missions and extend your collection, as some collectibles are useful in the long run.
