AC Longspear[]

Longspear is a heavyweight two-legged AC equipped with an OB core, dual back magazines, a bazooka, a laser blade, and energy anti missile extensions.


When fighting Deathgrip, first try to comprehend the situation. What is it, where is it, and how will it affect you? It's slow, it will mostly stay on the ground, and as long as you hop up and down strafing left and right at mid-range - the bazooka should never hit you. He doesn't typically use his OB or actually close in with his laser blade. Once you have learned the timing to dodge the bazooka shots, Deathgrip will pose little threat.

Just be careful that Deathgrip's missed shots don't hit the solar panels, as he sometimes stands close to them. To avoid this contingency, do not attack while either you or him are positioned near the panels, or move the fight towards the central structure (remember to not stray too far into the open field, as the operational area is rather limited). Fighting on the roof of the structure is not recommended as its surface is a little too limited for dodging Longspear's bazooka comfortably.

Lastly, if you do not want to fight Deathgrip head on, you can just wait him out until the facility's defences are brought online. Once they are activated, lure Deathgrip to the center of the roof. The laser cannons will make a short work of him.
