"Destroy Megalis" is a mission in Chapter 3 of Armored Core: For Answer.

Briefing[]

This will be your mission

The client is Omer Science Technology. Your objective is to destroy the Line Ark power recycling plant, Megalis.

The Line Ark insurgents have deployed a number of heavy anti-aircraft guns in a circle around the installation. It's a simple but highly effective system.

The client therefore recommends the use of a VOB unit. You should be able to penetrate the front line at high speed. Once through the Megalis defenses themselves will give you little trouble. It's a brilliant plan.

That is all.

Omer Science Technology is very eager to accomplish this mission. If you do, you can expect a large reward.

Enemies[]

  • Several Anti-Aircraft Laser Cannons
  • Several GA Solarwind Normals
  • Megalis

Dialogue[]

Serene Haze:Commence mission. Your target is Megalis, the lifeline of Line Ark. Your VOB will allow you to quickly close in on Megalis.


Serene Haze:(Hard Mode) Something's wrong with the VOB! Damn that incompetent repair crew! The VOB is extremely unstable. A single hit may cause an explosion! Take evasive action, now!


Serene Haze:(Hard Mode) You're taking hits, this is serious!


Serene Haze:(Hard Mode) Careful! We can't hold out much longer! Dodge their fire!


Serene Haze:VOB nearly depleted. Prepare for normal battle maneuvers! VOB depleted. Purging!


Serene Haze:Megalis is within visual range. Blow it to hell.


Serene Haze:Confirmed. Megalis has been destroyed. Mission complete. This is the end for Line Ark. Hmph. As long as you're aware of your actions. Skilled work.

Armored Core For Answer Destroy Megalis

The player's job is to take out the massive power recycling plant, Megalis, Line Ark's last resource now that White Glint has disappeared after his defeat.

The player is allowed to use a VOB unit to approach the target but he has to avoid the laser anti-aircraft cannons during his path; these cannons will produce an energy sphere who block the player's path.

If you crash through these spheres your PA will be degraded and you will get damaged, even if the damage itself isn't so high.

When you can clearly see Megalis, your AC will disengage from the VOB. Use Overboost and land on the top of the power plant but try to dodge the lasers: they can deal a surprising amount of damage. Once you've reached the top of the structure, simply fire near your feet with an assault rifle or a laser rifle. Megalis will be destroyed in few shots.

You obtain extra cash if you take out the cannons that surround Megalis and the normals Before destroying the plant itself.

Although enjoyable, this is a questionable choice, in fact you will take a serious amount of damage before all targets are destroyed, so the amount of money you have to spend for repairing your craft will be higher.

Depending on your craft performance, you can either try to destroy Megalis by fighting next to it, or you can jump inside the hole on the very top of the structure and have the enemy cannons do the work for you.. this is the fastest way to end the mission.
