How to Defeat Balteus in Armored Core 6: A Comprehensive Guide

Are you struggling to defeat Balteus, the challenging boss in Armored Core 6? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. As someone who has successfully beaten Balteus, I’m here to share my top strategy for taking down this formidable enemy. Without wasting any more time, let’s dive into the best approach to defeat Balteus in AC6.

Note: To overcome Balteus, it’s crucial to equip yourself with the best weapons available in AC6. Take the time to experiment with different weapons and builds between defeats to discover the most effective strategies against Balteus.

Preparing for the Battle: Essential Tips

Before engaging in combat with Balteus, I have two important tips:

  1. Don’t be afraid to quit the mission, upgrade your parts, and try again. It’s worth restarting the mission and defeating the AC preceding Balteus to build a winning loadout, rather than continuously struggling against an insurmountable obstacle. Take a look at my recommendations for the best builds in Armored Core 6 to increase your chances of victory.
  2. Invest in the ACS – Dynamic Deflection Control Tuning and Pulse Armor OS Tuning upgrades. While acquiring the other top OS Tuning upgrades will certainly aid you, these two modifications are essential. They reduce the damage you endure, allowing you to remain in the battle for longer periods and ultimately emerge triumphant against Balteus.

The Winning Strategy: Defeating Balteus in Armored Core 6

To conquer Balteus in Armored Core 6, I discovered that opting for a sturdy bipedal build with decent mobility and above-average health proved to be the best approach. After futile attempts using a reverse joint build, I found that the versatility of the bipedal setup allowed me to equip heavier weapons, endure more hits, and maintain satisfactory mobility throughout the battle.

When it comes to weaponry, using a kinetic weapon that inflicts consistent damage is highly effective against Balteus. Additionally, including at least two explosive weapons, such as grenade launchers and cannons, will help destabilize Balteus quickly.

To evade the overwhelming missile barrage that can stagger and damage you, employ a strategy of dashing forward and maintaining proximity with Balteus. Utilize your explosive weapons during Balteus’ missile attack periods. Seize the opportunity to relentlessly assail Balteus when it’s staggered, maximizing the damage inflicted.

At the midpoint of the battle, Balteus initiates a massive explosive attack. As soon as you bring Balteus down to 50% health, rapidly create distance. Prepare yourself for Balteus’ subsequent devastating flame sword strikes. To evade the initial swing, execute a high jump. To dodge the second swing, dash repeatedly in a rightward direction.

Once you successfully avoid the flame sword swings, focus primarily on relentlessly assaulting Balteus. Utilize your Pulse Armor and Repair Kits wisely to sustain yourself during the encounter.

Be cautious, as Balteus will employ the two flame sword swing attacks again. Additionally, it may remain stationary and unleash a ground-based flame attack. To dodge this attack, utilize your dash ability while airborne, moving either to the right or left.

With a consistent strategy, precise dodging, and relentless damage output during Balteus’ vulnerable moments, victory is within your grasp. Once you defeat Balteus, you’ll emerge as the ultimate champion. Take the valuable combat lessons learned during this battle and channel them into your future PvP endeavors.
