Up in Flames Mission Icon

Up in Flames is a mission in the third chapter of Armored Core 4.



  • Damage: 24000 AP (26000 AP on hard mode)
  • Ammo Use: N/A
  • Mission Time: 270 seconds


Let's confirm the mission.

The former MLF's surviving irregular NEXT, Asyut Minya, has taken over GA's Nasser Oil Refinery. It's up to you to evict him.

Preserving the refinery isn't a priority - stopping Minya is your only concern.

One-on-one, he's reportedly less of a threat than Amazigh, but backup forces' have been confirmed in the Nasser area. Watch your back.

Those are your orders. Careful out there.

Special Debriefing[]

You should get some rest now. Sleep well, soldier.


The mission begins with the player air-dropped into the combat area with the objective of stopping Asyut Minya. The mission objective is simply to neutralize the enemy NEXT, although the backup forces will harass the player with missile fire, potentially making the battle more difficult. The mission ends once Asyut Minya is defeated.

Hard Mode Difference: The mission differs little on hard mode, although there are a greater number of enemy support units.



Fiona Jarnefeldt:Your target is Asyut Minya. You can ignore any additional forces there. Stay safe.

Fiona Jarnefeldt:The enemy craft is loaded with firepower. Avoid a face to face shootout.

Sus:Hit you...again.

Fiona Jarnefeldt:It's too dangerous, avoid fighting it head-on!


Fiona Jarnefeldt:Asyut Minya Down. Enemy Next has ceased all activity. The mission was a success. Good work. Please head back.


  • It appears that there were intended to be one more support unit than appeared in the mission (four on normal mode, and eight on hard mode) although this extra unit appears to spawn below the map. This can be seen on the lower-right of the radar immediately after the mission begins.
  • Fatin translates to Fate in Albanian. This may indicate that Sus accepted the outcome of his battle with Anatolia's Mercenary.
