    In order to stagger enemies in Armored Core 6, you have to fill their impact meter. This meter is similar to that in Sekiro, fans familiar with that game will feel at home here. An enemy’s impact bar lets a player know when the enemy is going to let their guard down and will become susceptible to unblockable attacks.

    The Impact meter is yellow and is a different bar from their health bar so that players can identify it. In order for players to stagger enemies in the game, you need to fully deplete the Impact Meter. You need to use whatever damage and combos you can in order to deal enough damage so that their Impact meter empties, and you are capable of staggering them.
