Extra Arena

Twinhead-W is a Raven appearing in Armored Core 3. He is ranked E-1 in the Arena. He is partnered with Twinhead-B in the Extra Arena and they hold the title of the twenty-second highest ranked team.


Twinhead-W was one of the many Ravens contracted by Union to disable the Crest's Data Storage Facility generators. The strike team included Comeback, Flying Fix, Royal Mist, Valkyrie, Yellow Boat, and The Raven. During the mission, he was ordered to clear Sector S-31 (Possibly S-30 as well). It was here where he began encountering heavy enemy resistance with his AC taking the brunt of the incoming fire. He requested assistance which The Raven offered to provide. While he was able to withstand the attacks for a fair amount of time, he died shortly before The Raven was able to reach him at sector S-31. He was the first and only Raven to fall during the mission. While his death impacted the mission's progress, the rest of the group was successfully able to disable the facility. His death appeared to have an impact on Twinhead-B who viewed The Raven as having been partially responsible.


AC AnimalEdit

AC Animal

AC Animal

Animal is a middleweight quadruped AC equipped with an exceed orbit core, multi booster extensions, dual missile launchers, a pulse rifle and energy shield.

While it would appear that AC Animal is a threat with the back mounted missile launchers, this AC is far from it. For a quick mover the missile launchers do little more than serve as a means to keep Twinhead-W from using other forms of weaponry. He is incredibly unlikely to use his launchers even after having exhausted his pulse rifle ammo.



In-Game InformationEdit

Younger brother of Twinhead-B, he is most often accompanied by his sister when participating in missions. His role in this deadly duo is as a "closer," stepping in at the last possible moment to finish the job. He enjoys combat and shows a lot of potential.


AC Animal is not heavily armored and Twinhead-W is a little more threatening than his sister. Simply attack with any number of weapons and as long as you can aim well enough to keep up with his sometimes sporadic movement, you should triumph with little difficulty.



  • It is possible with some effort and speed to eliminate the enemies attacking him and "save" him in "Assault Crest Facility." No reward or thanks is given for his death as it is expected, scripted and nearly impossible to prevent.
