A formidable mech in Armored Core 6 takes time and strategic upgrades. One of the most impactful ways to enhance your mech is through OS Tuning in the Garage. It allows you to optimize your mech’s operating system to gain critical advantages in combat. However, OS Tuning requires the scarce resource of OST Chips. With limited chips, you need to spend them wisely to get the most significant boosts for your mech. Here are the best OS Tuning upgrades in Armored Core 6 (AC6).
Best OS Tuning in AC6
Boost Kick – Mobility Attacks
The Boost Kick OS Tuning unlocks a new melee attack during your Assault Boosts. You’ll kick nearby enemies for solid damage and increased stagger buildup. The Boost Kick opens up new offensive options.
Explosive Weapons – Fuse Control Tuning
Your heavy explosives, like missiles and grenade launchers, are key to taking down large foes. The Explosive Weapons increases their damage output significantly. Each upgrade level boosts explosive damage by 3%. Stack a few of these upgrades, and your rockets will shred through enemy armor. It’s ideal against bosses, turrets, and clusters of weaker enemies.
Melee Weapon – Drive Control Tuning
Equipping an arm blade, hammer, or pile driver can be highly effective. The Melee Weapons makes them even deadlier by increasing melee damage by 5% per upgrade. Melee attacks conserve ammo, build stagger quickly, and exploit close openings. This is a must-have Tuning.
Direct Hit Modifier – Damage Tuning
Direct Hit Damage is an excellent choice for players looking to maximize damage against Staggered enemies. When initially purchased for two OS Tuning Chips, this boosts Direct Hit Damage by 5%.
Repair Kit – Optimization
Repair Kits automatically restore health during missions and boss fights, with a limit of three Kits at any given time. This Tuning increases the healing done by each Repair Kit, allowing players to recover larger chunks of health. However, it’s important to note that the three-kit limit remains in place during boss battles.
