Ayre moves quite fast, so your shots need to be on target. Since it regenerates its shields, you need to damage it fast and in quick succession.

Boss Strategy

  • Stay Aggressive
    • Constantly apply pressure
    • Use your weapons and stay close, dodging forward when necessary.
  • Use Your Stun Needle Launchers
    • Stun Needle Launchers can stagger Ayre or break her shields
    • Shoot them in quick succession to ensure at least one hits
    • Save them for staggering or combine them with Gatling Gun shots for more damage
  • Phase 2: More Speed
    • When Ayre's health drops to 50%, she becomes faster and more aggressive.
    • Even clones appear, making tracking difficult.
    • Keep up the aggression.
    • She starts vulnerable, so hit her with Stun Needle Launchers before her shield recovers.
    • Keep dodging and shooting.

With determination and the right build, you'll take down Ayre and finish the challenging boss fight in Armored Core 6.
