Best Weapons Against Pusle Shield 

Some of the energy weapons that serve as a weakness against Pulse Sheild in AC6 are:

  • HI-32: BU- TT/A Pulse Blade
  • IA- CO1W2: Moonlight
  • Vvc-760PR Plasma Rifle
  • HI-32: BU-TT/A Pulse Blade

To identify these or any other energy weapon, look for words like Plasma, Pulse, or Lasers in the menu or the description. If you do not have any plasma guns in your arsenal, you can use shotguns to destroy the shields. They are less effective than laser guns but will do the job.

These odd-looking energy weapons have a low fire rate but exhibit excellent range. Secondly, they don’t have a direct hit bonus; neither do they possess solid impact damage. However, having a balanced arsenal with charged energy weaponry will benefit from Armored Core 6 Pulse Shield weakness.
