Code Name: Pendulum

Client: Old Gal BOC

Opponent: Zio Matrix

Place: Irina Mine

Weather: Fair Weather

Mission Start Time: 6:30

Estimated Success Rate: 60%


Unbelievably, forces employed by Zio Matrix have once again invaded
the Irina Mine, even though their first attempt was successfully

It's unclear what they are after, but these repeated incursions will
not be tolerated. Remove all hostile forces occupying the mine.

The intruders are monitoring the mine's main entrance, therefore you
will be required to launch a surprise attack via the underground.

The invading force has also disabled the mine's power supply and we
assume that the primary elevators are out of service.

It's quite possible that an AC with inadequate boosters will not be
able to access all areas of the mine, so prepare your AC accordingly.
Good luck.



Operator: "Enemy forces are present in the upper levels as well. The power supply has been cut and the lifts disabled. Ascend the mine shafts and destroy the intruders."



Armored Core 2 Another Age Intercept Mine Intruders

This is actually pretty straightforward but can also be tricky. Straightforward in the aspect that you just need to destroy all enemies in the level to complete the mission, but tricky in the way that you have to go about doing so. Why is it tricky? Because the level requires you boost/ascend the shafts while taking down the enemies. If you don't have an adequate booster setup or you are using parts with too high of energy drain, you will have issues ascending the shafts. It's very much impossible to ascend the shaft in one go (even with Limiter Release), which is why there're holed platforms on some levels of the shafts. Make use of those holed platforms to recover energy before ascending again. Take note that some enemies are not all on the same level in the shaft (some are located higher), which will require you to use the holed platforms as the ground.


  • You should have good boosting capabilities for this mission, otherwise this will be a long mission.
