Nest in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is the PvP area where players can fight against each other using their own customized mechs. The PvP experience in Armored Core 6 promises to be both rewarding and invigorating for participants. During the recent showcase, they've shown only the tip of the iceberg, as players were only limited to using only Chapter 1 Parts for their mechs. Obviously, this will all change upon full release, and we'll get to see stronger parts and builds that everyone will have access to eventually. The showcase also featured 1v1 and 3v3 battles. Currently, the PvP only has Create Lobby and Join Lobby, and that's the only part of the menu they've revealed so far during the showcase. They've also confirmed that if there are major balance issues upon full release, they will be releasing regulation patches.

Mech Customization

The greatest strength of the Armored Core series is giving its player base immense and unimaginable freedom in customizing their Armored Cores. Players are able to express their own playstyles by customizing their own ACs. They will have the option to choose from a vast array of weapon selections and parts. The weapons that we can expect from the game are ranging from handguns, rifles, missile launchers, blades, shields, cannons, ammo packs, pile bunkers, and more deadly weapons. Note that these are just types, each of the weapons I stated has its own variants such as weapons that fire solid or laser-typed rounds. Other parts such as the head unit to the leg part are interchangeable as well to match any kind of playstyle. It is worth noting on the other hand that each setup or loadout has its plus and drawbacks. With this, one of the most important things to note when customizing a mech in PvP is the legs.

The Legs will ultimately change your gameplay and how your mech will maneuver on the battlefield. There are a couple of different types of legs such as the Bipedal, which are the standard mech legs that let you move quickly. The Reverse Joint legs let you jump higher than you normally would. There are also the Tetrapod legs, these legs allow you to hover in the air and let you unleash a barrage of attacks on your enemies. The Tank legs, as the name suggests, resemble the treads of a tank. Tanks are the slowest leg types but ideal for heavily armored-focused mechs.

Player Matches in Armored Core 6

It was shown during the showcase that there were 1v1 and 3v3 player matches that players can participate in when playing PvP. In 1v1, players get to pit their customized mechs against each other in a one-on-one battle. It will be a best-of-3 or first-to-2 match, after destroying your opponent's AC, you'll get 1 point, and there will be 2 minutes per round. The first player to get 2 points will win the match.

For 3v3, two teams of three players each get to face off against each other and each player can pilot their own customized mechs. The match will start with a 5-minute timer time limit, and teams will earn points for each mech they destroy on the opposing team. Once a mech is destroyed, players can respawn after a cooldown, and they will also have the option to reassemble their parts if they think their build isn't doing well for the current matchup. The team with the highest points when the timer expires will emerge victorious.
