Like other From Software games, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is a layered experience full of systems to master. If you're looking to gain a tactical advantage in the newly released game, then you may want to grab a hardcover copy of the official Armored Core 6 strategy guide, which is available to preorder at Amazon at a discounted price of $30.89 (normally $45) ahead of its November 30 publication date.
The Armored Core 6 Pilot's Manual is full of useful information and battleground intel, and this book is a chunky 432-page hardcover that doubles as a neat collectible. Inside, you'll find combat training to help you master your mech and a guide to each of the 100+ specs that affect your performance, a gigantic list of parts and upgrades to acquire and install, a deep look at how every part works, and the knowledge to build the perfect mechanized suit.
This guide also includes a comprehensive look at each of the game's 59 missions across 200 pages of step-by-step walkthroughs, with detailed maps showing optimal routes and where to find valuable items. If you're looking to go toe-to-toe with elite independent mercenaries, this guide has you covered with tactics regarding the behavior, attacks, and weaknesses of these powerful operatives. Anyone looking to master the game can even read through a dedicated 50-page S Rank guide that is loaded with unique route maps, assembly recommendations, progression charts, combat log lists, and how to unlock every trophy/achievement.

Physical guidebooks are pretty uncommon these days, but when publishers do release official strategy guides, the books tend to be handsome pieces of physical memorabilia. The Armored Core 6 Pilot's Manual is the latest example, and it would look great on the shelf next to other From Software guides, including Elden Ring's massive two-volume set: The Lands Between and Shards of the Shattering.
