Completing Loghunt Missions in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon
Completing missions is essential in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, and for mercenaries, it’s the bread and butter of their profession. However, there are special encounters and enemies hiding Combat Logs, adding a layer of difficulty to the assignments. If you’re up for the challenge, collecting all Combat Logs and increasing your Hunter Class rank should be your goal. Not only will hunting these special targets test your skills as a pilot and honor, but it also comes with enticing rewards.
In this article, we will provide the locations for all Combat Log enemies to assist you in completing the Loghunt missions and collect all the Combat Logs.
How Loghunts Work in Armored Core 6
The Loghunt Program is a part of the side content in Armored Core 6. It involves hunting for collectibles called Combat Logs, which can be obtained by defeating specific targets during missions. These targets are marked with the sign of a Combat Log when you aim at them. To check which missions have enemies with Combat Logs, refer to the Replay Mission menu.
There are four types of Combat Logs – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum – each increasing your rank by a certain amount. While collecting Combat Logs is not mandatory, it is highly recommended as it allows your Hunter Class to rank up, rewarding you with exclusive parts for your mech that can only be obtained through the Loghunt program.
It’s important to note that Combat Logs are only registered and used to rank you up if you destroy the target and complete the mission. You cannot simply defeat the target and quit the mission. Armored Core 6 requires dedication.
Chapter 1 – Destroy the Transport Helicopters
Location: The tetrapod unit can be found in the last section of the mission. After destroying the second helicopter, head to a higher section of the map and fight the remaining enemies near the third and last helicopter. That’s where you’ll find the tetrapod. It has gap-closer moves and a cannon, but both attacks can be avoided by staying airborne and constantly moving.
Chapter 1 – Destroy the Tester AC
Target: Enemy Armored Core
Location: The enemy Armored Core can be found in the main area of the map. You can’t miss it because the mission objective is to destroy it. It’s easily spotted in the area where you start. This enemy is faster than the previous target, so a close-range dual-weapon build might be more effective to cause stress and stagger it.
Chapter 1 – Attack the Dam Complex
Location: The unit is in an area to the right of the second generator. It utilizes a cannon and a small gun to attack you, and it may also jump and attack with its pulse blade. The strategy to fight it is similar to the previous tetrapod unit. Keep moving and take advantage of its inability to fly. Before the fight, make sure to eliminate the two mechs at the top of the wall.
Chapter 1 – Operation Wallclimber
Target: Three Enemy Mechs
Location: The left section of the initial area, before infiltrating the wall. There are two ways to reach the area where you’ll find the three units. The first one is by following the steps to destroy the gatling cannons and clear most of the area. Alternatively, you can try flying over the left side of the wall, but be cautious as there are cannons in the area that can hit you from a distance.
Chapter 1 – Retrieve Combat Logs
Target: Yue Yu/ Little Ziyi
Location: They can be found in the lower part of the map. At the start of the mission, proceed straight ahead until you reach an open area with huge debris. Jump into it to locate Little Ziyi. The main challenge is to defeat them quickly so that you have enough time to retrieve the logs spread throughout the map before the clock runs out.
Chapter 1 – Attack the Watchpoint
Location: Sulla is the miniboss you must fight to progress through the mission. Sulla has a fast AC unit, so depending on your build, it can be quite challenging. Focus on dealing constant damage using missiles or close-range weapons. Slower builds might have trouble facing this enemy.
Chapter 2 – Infiltrate Grid 086
Target: “Invencible” Rummy
Location: You encounter Rummy in the initial sections of the mission. To defeat Rummy easily, learn how to use its attacks against it. When Rummy performs a melee attack, it becomes momentarily motionless. The best strategy is to stay close to Rummy, baiting it into using the melee attack, and then use your missiles or heavy weapons to counter.
Chapter 2 – Infiltrate Grid 086
Target: Three Light MT Units
Location: The units are located on the right side before reaching the center of Grid 086’s lower level. When you’re about 500 meters away from the mission’s designated location, you’ll see a gate with a yellow sign. Turn right and go to the lower part of the platform to find the Light MT units. Be cautious and avoid getting too close to them.
Chapter 2 – Ocean Crossing
Target: 4x Flying Units
Location: Two are on the right side before leaving the first part of the initial area, while the other two are found at the end of the path after the first duo. As soon as the mission starts and you exit the elevator, jump into a hole on the lower level. Follow the short corridor and destroy the targets along the way. Continue to the wall and jump over the edge to find the remaining two flying units.
Chapter 3 – Steal the Survey Data
Target: Heavy MT Unit
Location: In the middle section of the mission. From the starting point, follow the road on the right. Destroy the first group of units you encounter. In the next part of the area, you’ll find the Heavy MT unit carrying the Combat Log.
Chapter 3 – Attack the Refueling Base
Target: LC Unit
Location: Under a bridge in the middle section of the mission. After completing the first section, where you fight some units…
