S ranking Elimination on normal
 
I've been having some problems with S ranking Elimination on normal. I have S ranked hard mode and every time I try normal, I only get an A rank.

I have done several methods listed on various sites and my own methods. I have bladed the mission, received 1002 damage and made it in 83 seconds and still got an A. I have done twin 0200, received no damage and have a result of 5700 for ammo and I can't remember the time limit but it is faster than when I bladed for a result of A rank. The most I have earned during the mission is slightly over 131,000 and that was when I bladed.

I just want to know from people who have played the game extensively if I have a glitched mission.

Use laser rifles and AS Missiles (missiles that home in on targets). Go for time and minimum damage. You may need to adjust your total AP so that the value goes up.

The strategy I used was very similar to this:


Laser rifles may be ER-0200 or LR01-ANTARES and missiles BM03-MEDUSA or BM05-LAMIA

I thank you for trying to help though, but I need to see a normal video so I can see post game stats to use as a goal. I have watched every S rank video and as I stated that I have done hard mode with an S rank. I have also listed some of my post game stats. It just seems that the mission is bugged especially when I have only done a result of 5700 for use ammo, no damage and made it within the time limit specified.

It's not bugged. Try lowering your AP. If you have to, use the PA mech parts. I will try to play this one this weekend and try get back to you Monday. Add me if you want. Include a message about AC4 and x360a.org.

I realize that you need help with normal and not hard, but the difference between the two aren't drastic.

Low AP
 
I just did a run with AP of 26488
I used a blade for all the guys in the first area and then finished off the normals with the 0200. I did not take any damage and had an ammo result of 2530 and a time result of 124 seconds. I earned 148270 C with a rank of A. I don't know how much more I can squeeze out of this mission.

I just went through this one on Normal. I fired alternating, not tied (both at once). I also tested taking lots of damage, taking a long time, and wasting ammo and I got a C rank so it does change. I was also using the latest patch and regulation file.

Thank you
 
Thank you for your help. I decided to try out the build but only got an A rank. I noticed that you completed it in under 60 seconds and when I tried a speed run, I did it in 53 seconds earning an S rank. Your post mission stats helped out a lot.

I will say this, it does seem harder to get S rank in this game then Armored Core For Answer
