All my parts only say junk, repaired, or DLC. I have never gotten a prompt for performance.

Having trouble S ranking Order 43. According to youtube, I am supposed to scan and tag him, then double fist him with thermal pile drivers. I'm using KO-4H2 TPDs that do 35,024 CE and can't get him to die. Oddly enough, sometimes I complete the mission and get no money or subquests. The end cinematic plays so I don't think I am failing.

Anyone able to do this and have any tips?

Edit: I was able to get this one S ranked using this build, the TPDs unlocked for me at level 49. I did not scan or tag the enemy AC, just boosted up to him and gave him the double pump. You could try bringing a reserve magazine instead of chaff (I didn't use it).

RA: KO-4H4/Mifeng (Thermal Pile Driver)
LA: KO-4H4/Mifeng (Thermal Pile Driver)

SU: Arroz OPC100 (Optical Chaff)

maybe the ammo has a very high cost or something?
if that's not the case it sounds like a glitch. i easily got both subquests in that mission. i remember laughing at how short that mission was..


and about post #31, you have to find a part (weapons only) that says "performance" instead of junk or w/e else. i know the USG23-H gatling gun has a performance bar, and so does the strekoza BR. they are both very useful regardless.

*facepalm*

That's what I said. I said it was REPLACING those words.

If english is your second language, I forgive you. If not, please go back to school. See here:

When you're looking in the store you will see certain weapons that have a performance bar where it would normally say "Junk" or "Repaired." It will [instead] say "Performance" and then have a little bar.

If you haven't ever seen one like that.....then I'm not sure what to tell you. You won't find it in your inventory right away, you must purchase one from the store. Make sure to look in all the stores. It may also be that you need to join a high ranking team (Team lvl 50+) in order for one to show up.

The word instead really does change the meaning of that sentence. I didn't get your original meaning either.

It's implied. Sheesh. ;P

I will concede. My baaad.

In my defense, though, saying "normally it says" implies that when it says "performance" that is something other than normal.

I blame english for being such an overly-complicated language.

Is 54 the one where you start out and have to go down the street, then left over the bridge?

If so, that one took me FOREVER to clear as well. Usually I'd do fine.....and then I'd have one guy I missed in the middle or something.

Yeah that's the one. I started playing online and it seems custom parts are online only for some reason. The performance buff made alot of difference and I also had a golden run where they weren't hiding on the edge of the map where I have to leave the engagement zone to shoot them.

Also, I haven't done extensive testing on this but it seems that hiring mercs does not affect your rank. I had more than a few order missions that I was able to S rank with a merc. Maybe splitting money is only story missions? Finished the order missions last night, starting on story missions tonight.

Yes hiring mercs for Order Missions affects your performance ranking a lot differently than it does in story. I don't think it's possible to get an S rank with more than 1 person, merc or not, in story mode.

Could be wrong on that, but that's what I've seen / been told.

When trying to get the Zodiac on Story Mission 01 I was able to get an A ranking while dragging my partners through the mission. I'd like to think it is possible with a dedicated partner spec'd for the mission. For the most part it felt like I was just doing the mission solo.

It's possible (and maybe even easier) to get the Zodiacs to appear with a partner, but as far as I know (and according to Ultima OXZ who was the first person to get the S rank achievement) it's basically impossible to S Rank a story mission when you aren't alone, as it's determined by money and having a partner splits your money in half.
