Strategy[]

This guy is probably the first real difficult fight in the Arena because of him being the first OP-I user, and also the fact that his combat style surpasses that of any previous AI rankers. Be prepared for a serious difficulty spike.

No. 2448 is both fairly mobile and armed to the teeth with powerful weapons, making him an especially challenging opponent. He can constantly pressure you, seeking close range combat tirelessly while dishing out considerable punishment with his linear weapons, EO and missiles. Although having equipped missile decoys, he is shown to hardly use them, but this doesn't mean that he is completely unprotected, he still tends to evade the missiles in a funny way which makes him completely lose sight of you, and that is your best moment to attack.

His most dangerous weapons are his linear rifle, linear gun, missiles and EO, as these weapon combinations can easily catch opponents off guard and deal substantial damage at the same time, which is why mobility is important for you to avoid as much of his attacks as possible. His two linear guns can incur lots of stagger along with heat stress, which might easily lead you to end up in a stunlock with a depleted generator if your are unlucky, in which case you will be hard pressed to turn the match around. To make matters worse, due to being an OP-I build Crow Predator can fire the linear cannon on the move, enabling it to strike at any time and any angle. Unless you can dish out tons of damage fast or stay far away to avoid the linear shots, you are not going to outlast his barrages (especially as both of his guns have considerable ammo stores). Finally, No. 2448 also has the deadly MOONLIGHT blade which he will use if you get too close to him, so keeping a distance from him will help greatly.

His AC is also very well-rounded in defenses, so bring weapons that can deal a good amount of damage to him. Recommended weapons include rifles, machine guns, missiles, bazookas, or even his own linear rifle. An EO type Core can also help. The KRSW laser rifle works too, but be mindful that he is rather mobile and has a tendency to fly too, so use your ammo wisely. Crow Predator has plenty of speed and ammo reserves, so outranging or outlasting its weapons is not a good strategy. Instead, overpowering it with more powerful offence and defence of your own has a better chance of success.

Overall, he is on a scale of 1 to 10 of difficulty, an 8 or even 9. It is recommended to advance through the story first to obtain better parts to face him if you are playing the game for the first time, or if you are using a transfer save file from previous games, the good parts you already obtained can also be used to defeat him. It all comes down to experimenting with different strategies to fight him, until he is eventually blown to bits.

Trivia[]

  • Crow Predator is an exact replica of Evangel's AC Oracle in Armored Core: Nexus.
  • It is possible that the name "2448" is a play on the "elite" word in "1337speak", "1337". If the number were separated into 4 independent numbers, just subtract 1 from each number, and you'll get "1337"
