Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon Lets Players Throw Punches Instead of Bullets!

Armored Core fans are taking bullet dodging to the next level in the upcoming sixth installment, Fires of Rubicon, by resorting to a punch-only playthrough. If you thought the Souls series was tough, get ready for the ultimate challenge in this mechanized world of punishment and mayhem. FromSoftware enthusiasts have always found creative ways to intensify the gameplay, like completing Dark Souls with just their feet or conquering Elden Ring without leveling up. Now, they’re eager to bring that same spirit to Armored Core and leave their guns behind when Fires of Rubicon finally arrives next month.

The Armored Core subreddit is abuzz with excitement as user GreaterLiarbird shared a video showcasing the ability to use a powerful right-arm punch when out of ammo in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. This revelation has sparked a frenzy among players, all clamoring to partake in a punch-only run. “Someone will eventually give weapons the boot and start delivering knockout blows to bosses,” said one determined player. “It might take some time, but it can be done!” Another exclaimed, “Barefist challenge accepted,” while a third gleefully announced, “Finally, a chance for a badass melee-only adventure!”

Let’s be real here, though. The enemies in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon are tough as nails, and you’ll be doing pitiful damage with just your fist. This challenge won’t be a walk in the park. However, based on the ingenious ways fans have overcome obstacles in previous FromSoftware titles, it wouldn’t be surprising if some dedicated players manage to rise to the occasion.

Mark your calendars for the launch of Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon on August 25th! Word on the street is that the game is a staggering 50 to 60 hours long, making it not only five times lengthier than its predecessor but also bigger than all five previous core games combined. Get ready to dive into an experience that promises moments of impact within an expanded yet occasionally bland storyline.

Check out the footage that sparked the punch-only frenzy on Reddit! Get your mechanical fists ready, folks. Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is about to redefine the meaning of “punching above your weight class.” Let the carnage and hilarity commence!
