AC Dark Night[]

AC Dark Knight

AC Dark Night

Dark Night is a lightweight two-legged AC equipped with the KARASAWA plasma rifle, the MOONLIGHT laser blade and a dual missile launcher double back weapon. Due to the Human PLUS enhancements of the pilot the unit can fire blade waves. The unit is also capable of ignoring weight restrictions.


Shadow is definitely not an opponent you will want to mess around with, he doesn't hesitate in blasting you shot after shot at you with his Karasawa and this can spell serious trouble for you as this attack can take off loads of AP from you within seconds. A good way to avert this is to use a map with plenty of cover or using an AC with high mobility to avoid his Karasawa shots. After a while, when he has fired a significant number rounds from his sawa or he's out of energy, he will then switch to his missiles. Again, this attack can be averted by either using plenty of cover on a map, or the other way by predicting the trajectory of his missiles and moving out of the way. His most notably dangerous weapon besides the sawa, is obviously his Moonlight blade. He also won't hesitate to fire highly damaging blade waves from his Moonlight when an opening presents itself, often doing so when he's grounded. Make sure to avoid this attack at all costs as one hit from that can easily strip off 4k-5k health, which can mean instant death if you have already taken quite a lot of damage earlier in the fight.

Since he's a lightweight AC, his frame is rather fragile and easy to crack. You can just wait until he has run out of energy and he's grounded and hammer away at him, it is usually at this time where he frequently fire blade waves at you, and doing so often causes him to stall for a few seconds and he's bound to take loads of damage.
