Armored Core Raven's Test

This mission is incredibly easy, but is largely hampered due to the limited mobility of the starting AC. You can also survive for the three minute timer to complete the mission as well. They're not hard enemies but they move around fairly regularly and if you're new to the controls, it could be challenging. However it's designed to be a very easy mission and fighting them isn't that hard. Simply dodge the attacks of the Storches and destroy them in turn. 


  • This mission is impossible to skip.
  • This mission cannot be repeated. Although the AC test is basically the same as this mission.
  • You pass by destroying all enemy forces or by surviving for 3 minutes.
  • You do not have to pay for AC repairs and ammunition costs.
  • There are minor differences between the "Raven Test" mission, and the AC Test option. In Raven Test, music (Circulation) plays in the background, and the Storches are in slightly different locations compared to AC Test.
  • Despite what the briefing said, there is no opponent AC.
