How to Use Jetpack Build in Armored Core 6?

The jetpack build in Armored Core 6 is all about maintaining your distance from your enemies. Because you have an almost endless supply of boost and can hover forever, your opponents are at a disadvantage. Combined with a long-range FCS and snipers for weapons, you should have no trouble outlasting the competition. Furthermore, thanks to the extra amount of AP you get from your legs even if the enemy decides to rush you, you’ll have more than enough health and boost to reposition yourself for a counterattack.

However, if you’re dealing with a fast-moving enemy that renders your snipers useless, consider swapping to some standard kinetic rifles in your hands, and a few missile launchers for your shoulders. And for some bosses later in the game, this switch-up might be a necessity. But hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And if you’re decimating any ACs you see on the battlefield or arena with this build, you might even be able to liberate Rubicon with it.
