AC Pincer | Bloody Horn[]

Bad Brain's AC Pincer (Bloody Horn in Japanese, ブラッデーホルン) is a heavy reverse-joint AC equipped with several heat-damage weapons. They include inside napalm rockets, a small missile launcher and a vertical missile launcher, energy side shield extensions, a plasma rifle and a flamethrower. While it does sport an odd, if somewhat laughable weapon configuration, it can deal serious damage to unsuspecting foes at close range.

In-Game Information[]

Prefers using weapons like flame throwers and napalm to ravage an opponent's AC. One of his favorite ploys is to lull unsuspecting pilots into believing he's made a fatal error, only to realize too late that they've been setup.


Bad Brain will start off by shooting either his rockets or his plasma rifle, which can be avoided easily. Due to him being decked out with many heavy weapons, Bad Brain is a lumbering target that will haplessly boost around the battlefield while attempting to get a clear shot at you. However, it's generally ill-advised to get close to him, as he will employ his napalm rockets and flamethrower which can cause serious overheating problems.

Beating Bad Brain is simply a matter of outwitting and outsmarting him. Dodging his plasma rifle is essential as that can deal a lot of damage, and staying out of range of his flamethrower will render it useless. His rocket accuracy isn't too great, but still be careful of it. He rarely uses his back weapons so you need not pay attention to those. Dealing with Bad Brain swiftly would require some powerful weapons, as he does have a good amount of AP. Because of his slow mobility, getting behind him and blowing him apart is also viable, though you have to make sure he doesn't turn quick enough to face you.
