Combat Logs serve as a form of collectibles within Armored Core 6. These precious records of battle are more than just trophies – they’re the key to enhancing your arsenal and climbing the ranks in the fierce Loghunt program in Armored Core 6. These valuable Combat Logs are possessed by specific adversaries. Overcoming these foes in battle will result in the acquisition of their corresponding log.
What Is Loghunt In Armored Core 6?
Once you finish Operation Wallclimber in Chapter 1 of your initial playthrough, you’ll be greeted with a notification introducing you to Loghunt, a mercenary support initiative by ALLMIND.
After this point, specific adversaries will be marked in several of the upcoming missions. When you locate and defeat these targets, you’ll acquire a Combat Log. As you gather these Combat Logs, your tally will grow, leading to an elevation in your rank within the Loghunt program. This progression will grant you access to additional Parts for your AC with each advancement in levels.
Discovering Combat Logs
To unearth Combat Logs, your priority is to identify levels featuring enemies carrying these valuable logs. On your initial playthrough of a level, it might not be evident, but you can make use of the Mission Replay feature.
A prudent approach involves visiting the Replay Mission section each time you complete a new level during your first playthrough. Here, you can delve into the mission description and find clues under the Battle Log subsection. You’ll come across three possibilities:
- No Content (Blank): This indicates that the level does NOT house any Combat Logs.
- PENDING: If you encounter this status, it means there are adversaries you haven’t yet defeated within the level, and they possess Combat Logs.
- COMPLETE: Here, you’ve triumphed over all designated enemies, and there are no more Combat Logs awaiting collection.
A distinct marker adjacent to the health and stagger indicators will appear when you’ve come across an enemy holding a Combat Log. These logs are categorized into different tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, each contributing varying amounts to your Loghunt progression.
Armored Core 6 Loghunt Locations In The First Ending
Throughout this playthrough, you’ll encounter what are referred to as Decision Missions. These missions have been highlighted with the (DECISION) tag in the Chapter-wise tables. To achieve the first ending, it’s advisable to consistently opt for the top mission choice during the first playthrough. Then, on your second playthrough, make a point of selecting the bottom choice for these missions.
