One half of an AC team known as Hell Fire. They're said to be invincible when paired, but don't seem to fare as well in one-on-one Arena combat.

AC Longitude (US)/Vertical Fire (JP)[]

Longitude is a middleweight four-legged AC equipped witha multi missile launcher double back weapon, a machine gun, an energy shield and an overboost core.


The primary threat to this AC is his multi missile launcher; multi missiles can be very deadly to ACs without proper countermeasures. The BEX-BAMS-287 is the best anti missile extension part to deal with missiles like this. Outside of that, to effectively avoid multi missiles, one should stay close to him as the AI rarely uses multi missiles at closer ranges. However, this also has the disadvantage of him using his machine gun, and being a quad, he has decent mobility. However, machine guns have only average DPS, and the machine gun is far less dangerous to deal with than his dual multi missiles. Use weapons with good close range DPS to outpace his machine gun and effectively deal with him.
