Ace Combat 7 Mission 3 Two Pronged Strategy
You jump right into the action as soon as the mission starts. According to your commander, Golem Squadron and the others are already engaged. Your goal? Wipe out the hostile force and maintain air superiority. Your boss on the AWACS Sky Keeper tells you that we already have the upper hand in the fight, so everything should go smoothly. right?
When you arrive at the fight, things look fairly even. That doesn’t last for long. Enemy reinforcements are on their way and you are quickly outnumbered. You will be targeted immediately so be ready to start dodging missiles.
Despite being outnumbered, you can make quick work of these hostiles. Don’t forget to use chaff if you are in a spot where you can’t avoid missiles. Also, be aware there is quite a bit of cloud cover. If you aren’t sure how that can affect you, check out our Ace Combat 7 Clouds Guide.
Oddly, the hostiles fight to their last man instead of breaking off. You quickly learn why.
A Large Aircraft Approaches
As your team enjoys their victory, a missile comes out of nowhere. You’ll quickly realize it came form monstrous Arsenal Bird.
The Arsenal Bird is a large mothership of sorts. It launches a fleet of drones that are a step above those you have fought so far. The drones are too much for your crew, so you’ll need to try and down the Arsenal Bird.
To kill the Arsenal Bird, you’ll need to target the large rotors that power the beast. Approach it from the back and take out each rotor one by one. The rotors are highlighted by target boxes, as if they were individual hostiles.
Unfortunately, expect to be overwhelmed before you can finish the Arsenal Bird off. You are given the order to extract, and many of your friends won’t make it out. Fight your way to freedom to complete the mission.
