Mission pathsEdit

The game has three storyline branches, each resulting in a different ending. As per the Xbox 360 achievement names, these branches are identified as Ending 1, Ending 2, and Ending 3. Reaching these endings on Xbox 360 will unlock their corresponding eponymous achievements.

This is the second time an Armored Core game has multiple endings, the first instance being Armored Core: Last Raven.

Ending 1Edit

Ending 1 is permanently set at the end of Chapter 3 when the player chooses to take "Defend Arteria Carpals", which is unlocked regardless of prior mission choices. Here, the player supports the League of Ruling Companies against the anti-establishment group ORCA during Chapter 4. Following "Defend Arteria Carpals", there will be three missions to choose from, although all of these are in support of the League and all lead to the same ending: "Defend Cradle 03", "Defeat ORCA's Special AF Unit", and "Attack Anti-Satellite Cannons". Taking any one of these missions and completing them will unlock "Defeat the Main ORCA Forces". Completing that mission leads to the final level, "Defend Arteria Cranium".

Ending 2Edit

The Ending 2 path involves the player supporting ORCA over the League during their war. This path starts with "Attack on Arteria Carpals" which, like "Defend Arteria Carpals", is unlocked regardless of prior mission choice. Afterwards, there will be two missions available: "Destroy Cradle 03" and "Defend Anti-Satellite Cannons"; the former will lead to the Ending 3 branch whereas the latter continues the Ending 2 path. Completing "Defend Anti-Satellite Cannons" will take the player to "Defeat AF Answerer" followed by the final mission, "Attack on Arteria Cranium".

Ending 3Edit

In Ending 3, the player allies with the terrorist Old King rather than the League or ORCA. It is the shortest path, consisting of only two missions. It starts when the player takes "Destroy Cradle 03" instead of "Defend Anti-Satellite Cannons" while pursuing Ending 2, and ends immediately afterwards with "Occupation of Arteria Carpals".
