Armored Core 6 EN Shortfall [Expert’s Take]

This guide will explain how to prevent an EN Shortfall in Armored Core 6 so you never have a hiccup when beginning a Sortie.

Armored Core 6 EN Shortfall

EN Shortfall is a condition in Armored Core 6 that can prevent you from beginning a Sortie. i will explain in This guide everything you need to know about EN Shortfalls and how to prevent it.

Key Takeaways

  • EN Shortfall is a condition in Armored Core 6 that can prevent you from a Mission Sortie.
  • EN Shortfall is caused by having a Current EN Load that exceeds the threshold of your Maximum EN Load.
  • Your Current EN Load can be reduced by equipping different Unit Parts, Frame Parts, or Inner Parts.
  • The Best Way to prevent EN Shortfall is by using a more powerful Generator, such as the VP-20D, which increases your Maximum EN Load Threshold.
  • Keep an eye out for Weight Overload alongside EN Shortfall, as you need to manage both variables to Sortie.

Insufficient EN causes EN Shortfall. Moreover, this happens because there is insufficient EN to support your Armored Core’s functions. Furthermore, when your Current EN Load exceeds the threshold of your Maximum EN Load, it can prevent you from Sorties. Consequently, In my experience after spending good number of hours in Armored Core 6 I can confirm you can’t progress the story or offline campaign without lowering your Current EN Load.

This mechanic may be annoying at first sight, as it was for me to , but it helps to balance out the loadout you equip when starting a mission. I recommend  Equipping a combination of the best gear without EN Overload which can hamper the otherwise specially crafted gameplay experience FromSoftware has intended. As Armored Core 6 has no difficulty settings, EN Shortfall is a vital balance mechanic.

How To Fix EN Shortfall

EN Shortfall in Armored Core 6 can be fixed relatively easily. Changing your Unit Parts, Frame Parts or a few Inner Parts is the first way. However, these parts don’t affect your EN Load as significantly as your Generator Inner Part. This brings us to the second and  way the way I prefer of increasing your EN Load: Changing your Generator.

You can quickly gain more flexibility and choices with your parts if you can access a quality Generator part such as the VP-20D. The Arquebus Corporation made this Generator and boasted a vast EN capacity, as suggested by its Part Info:

“Circulating-current Generator by Arquebus. Designed with a focus on EN capacity and output to support Arquebus energy weapons, it supplies more raw power than any other corporate product on the market.”

However, the VP-20D Generator is relatively heavier than standard Generators according to my experiance of this game . So even if you manage to circumvent the EN Shortfall, you may Overload your Weight, which also won’t let you be able to Sortie. So you’ll have to spend an extra few minutes in the Garage before a Sortie to ensure your Armored Core is appropriately optimized to complete the upcoming Mission.

My Thoughts On Shortfall Mission

It is highly encouraged from myside to use EN shortfall to prevent obstacles like mission sortie in armor core 6 and in order to get the best experience out of it , try to change your generator while fixing your EN as mentioned above .
