AC Firefly[]

AC Firefly

AC Firefly

Firefly is a heavyweight bipedal AC equipped with an overboost core, a back mounted missile launcher, back mounted radar, shotgun and laser blade. The unit is built for close-range combat.



In-Game Information[]

While he has no defining traits in either his setup of combat style, he pilots a well rounded unit and adapts easily to various battlefield conditions. His fights are usually uneventful, but every once in a while he puts on a good show.


Vice will boost and hop around the battlefield while shooting with either his shotgun or missiles, neither of which pack a punch. Even for a heavy AC, he does demonstrate rather decent mobility, so keep an eye on him. He does have good durability so it's better to use weapons that have good damage and punch. But even without it, Vice is by no means difficult. He is only moderate talent at best, and can be easily flanked by quicker, more agile enemies.

Overall, Vice presents himself as a durable, somewhat mobile target, who is only marginally threatening.



The name Vice refers to a practice, behavior, or habit generally considered immoral, sinful, depraved, or degrading in the associated society.

The name Firefly refers to winged beetles commonly called fireflies or lightning bugs known for their conspicuous crepuscular use of bioluminescence to attract mates or prey.
