Strategy To Defeat The PCA Enforcement Squad At The End

(PCA) Planetary Closure Administration Enforcement Squad is a modern military body that supports ground troops and deploys drones, warships, and special forces into the battlefield.

The PCA is more technologically advanced than the Armored Cores you use.

Some points to consider for defeating the PCA are as follows,

1. Strong Armor Build

To defeat the PCA enforcement squad, you must build strong armor.

The stronger the armor, the better your chance to win the game. 

Armored Core offers a wide variety of customizable builds.

The players can use those builds to customize a strong head, arms, legs, etc. for their in-game body.

2. Weakness Of The LCs

LCs are PCA frontline troops who hover in the air like wasps, often working in a team.

 Steal the survey data has a maximum of three LC deployments.

If the LCs are alarmed about your presence, they will dodge many attacks.

Several indirect attacks, like grenades and napalm, are also rendered useless.

Despite all these difficulties, there is a way to defeat the LCs. You have to use their weakness against them.

LCs are vulnerable to ACS build-up, mainly from shotguns.

A solid blow from a gun will drop the LC on the ground where it is weak and open to attacks.

Besides, use your chance to attack it with your well-built weapon.

Furthermore, attacking from a region far from their sight is recommended to defeat the LC.

LCs are only able to dodge attacks that they can see.

3. Heavy Warship

The heavy warship is a sudden addition to the enemies in the game.

Furthermore, it only appears after the defeat of other enemies. Therefore, it is the last enemy of this mission.

Likewise, to move forward to other missions in Chapter 3, you should defeat the warship. Otherwise, you can not proceed forward.

In stealing the survey data, the heavy warship releases drones to assault the player directly.

Whenever the drones appear, you should shoot all of them down.

After defeating the drones, you have to attack the unshielded warship. It means that you can attack the warship.

Another way to destroy the warship is to attack the ship’s bridge area.

Objective Of The Mission

The objective of completing this mission is as follows,

  1. Gather survey data about Coral Convergence collected by the drones.
  2. Attack the Arquebus Survey camp.
  3. Prevent the further delivery of data.
  4. Defeat the PCA enforcement Squad.

Reward After Completing Steal The Survey Data In AC6

The reward for completing Steal the Survey Data mission is 100,000 COAM.

COAM is AC6’s primary source of exchange.

You can use COAM to purchase powerful weapons and parts to customize your Armored Core. A strong armored core is necessary to fight the enemy.

Access to different parts of an AC makes it easier to switch gears as per the requirement.

The Bottom Line

Stealing the survey is a mission in chapter 3 of Armored Core 6, where your main goal is to attain the survey data about Coral Convergence.

The battle in this mission is impossible to win after the first try due to the sudden appearance of a warship.

 It will take more than two to three tries to complete the mission.

Therefore, keep trying, upgrade your armor, and eventually, you will complete the mission.
