AC TyrantEdit

AC Tyrant

AC Tyrant

Tyrant is a heavyweight reverse joint AC equipped with an overboost core, anti-missile extensions, a triple rocket launcher, a grenade launcher, a spread bazooka and a laser blade. An interesting note on AC Tyrant is that it is one of the only ACs in Armored Core 3 to enter battle overweight. However it is still deceptively quick, so a slower AC is likely to be pounded by rockets if not up to the task of evasion. Due to the unit being equipped with OP-INTENSIFY it can fire blade waves and use the back mounted grenade launcher while moving.



In-Game InformationEdit

Even among the A-ranked Ravens he's known for being extremely aggressive. He believes in taking a fight to a high pitch from the get go, in order to bring his opponents to their knees and ensure victory. He's not above cheating to accomplish this.


BB's strategy mainly consists of moving slowly and trying to out-damage you. The best way to beat him is to just equip a fast AC with a machine gun and constantly strafe him. Defeating him within the first minute or so is recommended because it is usually around that time that BB will switch to using his grenade launcher which will more often then not, turn the tide of the battle. However, beware that while BB's midair game and all around piloting is slow, his close range blade work is some of the best in the arena. BB can make amazing come from behind victories out of no where if he gets the opportunity to pin you near a wall, breaking into your AC with a relentless and almost ridiculously quick series of powerful blows. While he is possibly the least challenging of the A ranked pilots, do not forget he is still an A ranked pilot.



The name Tyrant refers to a cruel and oppressive ruler who's rule is absolute, unrestrained by law. Most Tyrants usurp power, taking it by force. The name of BB's AC reflects his own aggressive personality.
