Armored Core 6: How To Unlock & Play PvP Multiplayer

Wondering what the Armored Core 6 Multiplayer looks like? Here's our guide that shows how to unlock and play PvP in AC6.

Armored Core 6 is out but does it have a Multiplayer or Co-op feature? Although the Fires of Rubicon are burning brightly, one of the most sought-after questions is whether there is any way you can play Multiplayer. Fortunately, there is an option to do so. However, players will have to unlock Multiplayer if they want to play it in AC6. In this guide, we will explain how multiplayer works in the game and how players can get access to it.

How does Armored Core 6 Multiplayer Work?

How to Unlock Multiplayer in AC6

Once you launch AC6, you won’t be able to find any particular section for PvP, Co-op, or split screen. While most players would think that you will have to play the game solo, that’s not the case. Armored Core 6 players will have to unlock the Multiplayer option to play the reputed PvP mode of the game. However, that is all there is to it whilst multiplayer is concerned. Although unlocking multiplayer sounds quite easy, it is hardly so.

How to Unlock Multiplayer in AC6

You need to complete Chapter 2 and beat Ocean Crossing, the 14th mission in Armored Core 6 in order to unlock Multiplayer. Once you complete the mission, you will get a notification from Ayre about a special mercenary support program. Now that you have received this message, head to the Garage menu and look for the NEST online battle simulator. You can head to 1v1 or 3v3 PvP multiplayer gameplay from here in AC6.

Can you Co-op or Split Screen in Armored Core 6?

No, multiplayer is only limited to PvP in Armored Core 6 and currently, there is no form of co-op gameplay. If you are looking to jump into the mech with your friend, it’s best if you try out the 3v3 PvP to play with them. Or you can even battle against them in the 1v1 Multiplayer and get the bragging rights.
