This guide will assist players who are having issues with the instructional mission’s boss in ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON.
How to beat it:
Here are some things I’ve discovered that are very helpful:
1. Act assertively. The chopper can’t handle you at close range very well (especially if you’re not in front of it). Close in to use your sword frequently. Keep moving while on the ground, and as soon as you can, return to the air and close range.2. Continue adding stagger to the enemy. Keep pressure on the boss so the stagger gauge doesn’t drop too much (it will drop quickly otherwise). Prioritize getting at least one sword in when you have filled the stagger bar.3. If your missile launcher and guns are both not on cooldown, you can fire several weapons simultaneously. You’re not forced to shoot each one separately.
I had to try eight times before I finally succeeded, but after learning these three lessons, I was able to complete the job the first time.
