Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon Unveils Update 1.06 with Significant Changes
Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon has rolled out its latest update, patch 1.06, introducing a plethora of balance adjustments and bug fixes. This marks the first update for Armored Core 6 since the release of patch 1.05.
The December update for Armored Core 6 brought in a ranked matchmaking system along with new frame parts, weapons, and nameplates. Despite garnering positive reviews from fans and critics upon its August 2023 launch, the mech-based action game faced challenges in maintaining a robust player base. Currently, the game has an average of just under 2,000 Steam players in the last 30 days, significantly lower than its peak of 156,000 players at launch. The predominantly single-player nature of Armored Core 6, focused on PvE content, led many players to move on after completing the game. Nonetheless, there is optimism among fans that solid updates can rejuvenate the player base..
On February 5, Armored Core 6 released patch 1.06, bringing about balance changes across various weapon units, frame parts, and inner parts. Notable alterations include nerfs to the Viento needle gun and LCB laser cannon, coupled with buffs to the WLT FCS and Kasuar reverse joint. In total, 21 weapon units, 19 frame parts, and 8 inner parts underwent rebalancing, promising a substantial impact on Armored Core 6’s prevailing meta. Additionally, the update addressed several bugs, such as tank legs causing a shorter hit stun incorrectly and back weapons firing improperly after reloading.
The patch is now accessible on all platforms, with Armored Core 6 recommending users apply the update before engaging in online play. Despite Armored Core 6 primarily being a single-player PvE experience, its PvP multiplayer component offers a high skill ceiling for dedicated players. The community has responded positively to the latest balance changes, appreciating the adjustments to both popular and less-utilized tools. Fans are optimistic that these modifications will further accentuate Armored Core 6’s outstanding combat dynamics.
