AC GauntletEdit

AC Gauntlet

AC Gauntlet

Gauntlet is a heavyweight AC equipped with an overboost core, side shield extensions, back mounted pursuit missile launchers, a machine gun and spread howitzer. A heavily armored AC, Gauntlet is designed primarily for keeping its opponents at medium range where it could deal optimal damage. Its LANZAR missiles can end many battles before they even start. The AC's one downfall is its lack of mobility.



In-Game InformationEdit

Known for his spectacular boost charges, which are accompanied by constant volleys from both arms weapons. The pursuit missiles on the back of his AC serve him well and though some claim he is just lucky, his actions prove otherwise.


Bison will sometimes use his LANZAR pursuit missiles but will rely mostly upon his machine gun at medium range and spread howitzer at close range. Given his lack of turning ability, most ACs will be able to outflank him quite easily. Rather than boosting away while turning, Bison will slowly turn and seek out his opponents. During this movement, he's quite susceptible to attacks.

The KEBT-TB-UN5 is particularly useful in this fight given that it allows for ACs to swiftly flank Bison.
