Handler Walter has no phases, but can heal himself twice. Watch out for charged attacks from the Coral Rifle and Coral Oscillator.

Boss Strategy

  • Single-phase fight
  • Avoid charged attacks by quick boosting or assault boosting away
  • Stagger the boss with plasma or high-impact weapons
  • Be agile and use mid to long-range tactics
  • Use VP-20C or VP-20D FCS to track the boss from a distance

Once you defeat Handler Walter, you'll experience the Liberator of Rubicon ending and gain access to the HAL 826 frame. It's a tough fight, but with the right build and strategy, you'll come out victorious in Armored Core 6.
