Comeback (known in Japanese as Party Play, パーテイープレイ, Pati-Purei) is a Raven appearing in Armored Core 3. He is affiliated with Global Cortex and ranked D-1 in the Arena. He is partnered with Caller in the Extra Arena and they hold the title of the fifth highest ranked team.

Biography[]

Comeback was one of the many Ravens contracted by Union to help destroy the generators of the Crest's Data Storage Facility. The strike included him, Flying Fix, Royal Mist, Twinhead-W, Yellow Boat, Valkyrie and The Raven. Once they reached the facility, the Ravens split up to clear out the different sectors of the facility in search of the generators. Comeback was able to clear out sectors S-04, S-16, and C-13. He started off slow at S-04 before picking up the pace. Comeback survived the mission and began to take on more significant and dangerous missions alongside The Raven.

In-Game Information[]

A slow starter, it's not that often that he finds his rhythm before the tide turns against him. Every now and then though, something clicks and he's able to regain lost ground. He's earned a loyal following by keeping spectators on edge.

Strategy[]

Comeback will start off by idly moving toward you while shooting missiles or rockets. As his description states, he is indeed slow out of the gate; he usually won't begin boosting until he sustains some damage, at which point he will start flying or use overboost. But even then, it's the least of your concern. Unless you're standing still or moving idly like he does, his rockets and missiles will not pose any threat, as he has poor targeting accuracy with them. If you're engaging him from a distance, it's unlikely he'll even get a chance to use his blade, so you don't even need to bother with this. Armor and AP-wise, Joker lacks in both departments, and is prone to being staggered or stunned like most hover ACs. Hit him as hard as you can, and if done right, he won't even get a chance to boost or overboost if you're able to kill him quick enough.
