Recover Capsules is a mission in Armored Core.


Requested by: Chrome

Advance: 0

Upon success: 30000

Theater of operations: Murakumo Human Plus Lab

Enemy forces: Fighting Machines

Conditions for success: Recover the capsules


We want you to break into an abandoned facility that was used by Murakumo in the initial stages of their Human Plus development. It was left after a fire several years ago.

The Human Plus technologies were supposedly developed by Murakumo but nothing has been released publicly about the initial stages of research, so many mysteries remain.

Our surveys so far have not turned up much information. However, we received strange reports from a survey team recently dispatched to the abandoned facility.

Parts of the facility are said to be operating even now and strange capsules have been placed in the furthest most room.

Upon trying to recover the capsules, the team was attacked by fighting machines that they had never seen before. They could not fight back and failed to recover the capsules.

Your mission is to recover those capsules. We have no idea about their significance, but they might give us an advantage over Murakumo. We are counting on you.



Announcement: Emergency announcement: intruder confirmed inside the facility, security forces prepare to engage.



Armored Core Recover Capsules

The capsule is located in the deepest part of the facility. The area consists of narrow tunnels with occasionally open rooms.

Continue straight forward at the first four-way insterection, as the paths to the left and right are dead ends. The will be an MT lurking in an open room that will fire from the right before reaching the next two branches in the path. The forward path leads to dead ends, the righthand path leads to a long pitfall that will place the Raven in the immediate vicinity of four MTs, but is the only way to advance.

Another pitfall soonafter will result in the Raven landing near 4-5 MTs in a long hallway. Following the path straight and downward leads to a four-way split with only the righthand path leading deeper into the facility. After the path leads down a couple of ramps and doubles back on itself, a room with the target objective will be on the left.

When standing in front of the capsule, movement may result in the AC swinging its laserblade instead of grabbing the capsule, destroying it. Remain still while using O to grab the capsule.
