If you’re confused by how to use the Weapon Bay in Armored Core 6, this guide will break down everything you need to know about how you can access it as well as how you can use it, and why it is necessary in the game. This is one of the main areas you’ll be spending your time in if you are customising your mech and need to change up your weapons.
How to use the Weapons Bay in Armored Core 6
Some of the systems aren’t very well explained in Armored Core 6, and they can often leave you to fend for yourself in the game. The Weapons Bay is first and foremost something that you purchase. This is called an OST chip. These are things that you purchase in order to upgrade your AC. The Weapons Bay also allows you to upgrade your shoulder weapons into extra handguns if you want to, which, depending on what enemies or bosses you are fighting, can be incredibly useful.
The Weapons Bay is a part of your garage, and here you can change the weapons that you use, and decide whether they are right for your mech. As you are changing your weapons, you want to make sure that you are keeping an eye on how much your mech weighs, as you don’t want to make yourself overburdened. When you are in the weapons menu, you’ll then be able to add handguns as shoulder weapons.
This OST chip is a very useful item and can be upgraded further to offer you more options throughout the game if that is what you want. This can be obtained by completing Arena Missions. By upgrading your Weapons Bay, you can fine-tune your controls, your aim, and your boost. So, if these are things that you find yourself struggling with, consider undertaking the Arena Missions in order to get that OST chip upgraded.
That’s everything you need to know about the Weapons Bay in Armored Core 6.
