Yeah, I'm around chapter 4 now, and I pretty much have your builds.

It was basically a matter of figuring out what types of weapons the model numbers in your guide were referring to. A little research at gamefaqs allowed me to find lower-grade substitutes until the right part was available in the game.

The builds are quite helpful at this point. Thanks!

Just start over, pick the starting AC that has most of those parts already. You will have to complete a few chapters to unlock all the weapons anyway.

Pfc Hoskins - At the end of each chapter you get some FRS points (it says "You get X FRS points or something like that). If you are on chapter 3 you should have about 50 (I think). You can spend these on the last mech customization screen to improve certain aspects fo your mech. Click "manual" and tweak it however you want.

There aren't many points available in the beginning of the game, but towards the end you get tons, plus points for every data pack completed, plus 1 point for every hard mission you get an S on... so you end up with around 300 points, enough to max out a bunch of attributes.

AND, as deathbypig suggested on the first page, tweaking where your points are (once you have a lot of them) can make the difference between an A and an S rank.

Hope this helps.

If I did the last mission of a Chapter without completing all the missions, will I need to go back to do those missions that I didn't complete in order to unlock the normal playthrough achievement?

Yes. Personally, I unlocked "Complete Chapter 6" (the last chapter) 2 days before I got the normal playthrough achievement.

Is there any way to tell if I completed a mission or not?

I'm pretty sure that if you hit RB/LB on the mission select screen you can replay missions. I also believe that after you finish it reorganizes all the missions in a big chart and tells you the ranking (if any) that you got on each mission, so it's really easy to tell.

Sorry I'm not sure, but I don't have it anymore. I am 100% sure that at some point it's easy to tell, though.

2 cents

I'd like to throw my 2 cents in and point out that for the mission Internal Purge(hard), I had an easier time with the BurnMoon schematic. It seems the Next that appears in the end doesn't really shoot at you if you hover next to her and slash her with Moonblades.

The build I used for was Madness arms, 047AN05, and a single OGOTO. Max out Lock Speed and Radar Refresh. Get cover and pop up and shoot the snipers with the OGOTO until they are all dead, then use the madness arms on the NEXTs. Just don't miss. Dunno if you've been using the Madness Arms, but 2 hits pretty much kill everything... I found them fantastic against all the annoying, evasive bosses.

Hope this helps!

I'll have to try this when I get my xbox back. My daughter broke my brand new 360 with Kinect today.

How am I supposed to get an S rank on Icebreaker Defense?

I've done it close to 10 times now, and I can never get over an A.

Alright! Just completed the game! This guide was a giant help, I doubt I could have completed this game without it!

Thanks!

White lance is much easier just to use two Moonblades and a quick mech to boost past everything and blade the white ship. It took me less than 30 seconds to complete the mission with almost no damage taken on hard.

Also the SIRIUS cannons are much better for fighting the fast-moving mechs on a few stages than the OGOTOs as suggested here.

This guide was extraordinarily helpful, though it took me a while to unlock the SIRIUS energy weapons. I think it's unlocked after passing Chapter 4 or so but I cannot be sure.

Whether you're still around or not, I thank you for creating this guide Despised Icon. It's gotten me out of a few tight jams.
