Armored Core 2 Another Age Recover Research Materials

First off, the briefing is but a manufactured one. You don't actually need to recover the materials. You simply need to destroy all of the bio-weapons that appear in the mission.

Second, since you are dealing with bio weapons, having a head with a bio sensor is a must. Otherwise, you won't be able to lock on to the enemies.

Lastly, usually any weapon works against them. Just be careful not to miss too many shots as the enemies can abruptly jump in between turns to evade your fire. They are also quite durable so hard-hitting weapons will be effective against them.

Another thing is that, the shots the enemies fire can deal an insane amount of heat if you get hit several times. Be sure to avoid their fire as well.


  • You should equip a head with a bio sensor for this mission.
  • Despite the mission briefing, you do not actually need to recover any of the materials. All you need to do is simply destroy all of the bio-weapons in the mission itself.
