Moving on, now that you know what the boss is, you will need to defeat it, which can be quite a tedious task. 

As you start the Intercept The Redguns Mission, there will be a wave of enemies that will continue to fire out missile after missile toward you, and Armored Core 6 G1 Michigan will cause the first wave of enemies to continue to shoot at you. Still, with some maneuvering, these enemies shouldn’t be difficult to dodge. 

  • One thing to note is that the first wave of enemies will be pretty scattered. Therefore, players must move around to aim and fire at them. 
  • After this, there will be a total of 2 more waves that will resemble the first ones, including a range of different mechs.

Players will need a proper AC6 G1 Michigan Build to defeat the boss.

Now, when it comes to the overall attack patterns for Armored Core 6 G1 Michigan, some players might look towards using the AC6 Flamethrower to take it out faster, but the strategy is what matters here more than anything else. 

  • Bulletstorm Barrage: The boss will continue to launch out shot after shot from the rifle, and you can simply go towards the side to dodge the attack. 
  • Detonating Missile Payload: It can launch out a missile with a payload, and it will detonate into smaller missiles that can hit you, and you can dodge it by dodging towards the end where it is about to attack you. 
  • Explosive Blast: It will cast a projectile towards the player that will explode, and you can go ahead and quickly boost your way out of this one. 
  • Missile Salvo: It will launch missile after missile, and you will need to either Quick Boost or dodge to the side. 
  • Sidewinder Attack: G1 will instantly dash towards the player, and you can quickly boost to get away from it.
