"Many like you have tried to best me, but all have failed!"
— Rim Fire

Rim Fire is an independent Raven in Armored Core: Nexus and Armored Core: Last Raven.


Rim Fire is the son of the Nexus Raven Pin Fire, and the successor and inheritor of the AC Bullet Life. Like his father, Rim Fire is cold, cunning, and extremely arrogant. Among all the Ravens, Rim Fire is considered one of the most dangerous. He has been hunting down other pilots without any regard for which side they belong to, simply for the purpose of gaining their bounties and advancing his own reputation as a skilled Raven, which he tends to boast of.

Rim Fire operates on his own most of the time, but has been known to help out various warlords on occasion. He is later recruited by Zuben El Genubi and depending on what route the player takes, either faces Zuben and Rim Fire or just Rim Fire alone while searching for Evangel. He is killed in most endings, either by the Raven or Zinaida presumably.

Rim Fire can be encountered in Nexus, if he kills his father, Pin Fire. He will challenge the Raven in the Arena, piloting an AC nearly identical to his father's AC, save for the core & missile launchers.

I don't know how you figured out that it was a trap. I guess you're smarter than I gave you credit for.

Enjoy your life while you can, I'm not the only one who wants to see you dead.

AC Bullet Life Edit

Mid to heavyweight Quad-leg AC model with unique tan on black camouflage that has impressive close-range damage potential. Attacks launched by both machine guns simultaneously are truly devastating; its only true weakness is its lack of ammo, but the pilots skill makes up for this. He utilizes a large amount of ballistic weaponry, his most notable being twin FINGER hand mounted machine guns on either AC arm to release a phalanx burst of rounds to shred opponents. The AC is also capable of mid range combat with its chain gun and micro missiles. Ordinarily, Bullet Life would overheat in seconds with its GULL-KUJAKU combination, but the OP-INTENSIFY abilities render this a nonissue. Balanced defense rounds out this unit and makes it a very dangerous foe in close quarters combat.


Ensure that you stay away from Rim Fire at all costs; the twin FINGERs will shred any AC that gets close. Sure they only have 250 rounds each, but their combined attack power is insurmountable. He also likes to attack with micro missiles plus extensions at longer ranges but these can be dodged. He also has twin SYLPH machine guns as a hanger part meaning that the punishment continues. Typically if one of the FINGERs runs out he'll switch over to the chain gun.

While it is possible to take him out in a tank, the FINGERs are hard to beat in a damage race. Grenade Launchers, Laser Canons and an EO core are a must to win. He's also very agile meaning that you need to be quick on the draw to be able to defeat him. A better option is to try and out flank him. Missiles like the CENTAUR are good as they're harder to intercept. Stay at longer ranges and he'll become less of a threat.

It is also possible to defeat him using all TITAN weapons. This was only attempted in the 2 on 1 fight in Last Raven along with an EO core but it does make it laughable of a challenge. Note this took a few tries due to his and his partner's dodging ability but it still was funny. You should try saving a Linear Cannon or Rifle for him due to their stun. He won't be able to shoot you with the twin FINGER machine guns. He will resort to mid-range and use his chain gun instead.



Armored Core: Last Raven PortableEdit


  • Rim Fire actually makes his debut in Armored Core: Nexus after the player kills his father, Pin Fire.
  • In Armored Core Last Raven he has the third highest bounty at 85,000. Also with his skill level he could be a potential Dominant.
  • If the player does not take the mission "Eliminate the Enemy AC" on certain paths, Rim Fire will send a threatening letter implying that the player was the specific target of the trap set.
  • AC Bullet life is one of the only two ACs in Last Raven to use the Camouflage paint pattern; the other is Omega.
