Becoming available on October 14th, Patch 1.04 fixes a series of minor and major bugs in Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon. These are mostly bugs that could only be triggered under certain conditions but would disrupt a players experience. Here is the breakdown of the improvements made with the Patch 1.04.
Patch 1.04 Improvements
- Fixed a bug that was preventing AC Data from being loaded when using a decal that has been deleted from the server.
- Fixed a bug with the WB-0000 BAD COOK when equipped to the right hand.
- Fixed a bug with the IB-CO3W2: WLT 101 in regards to its range and charge attack.
- Mitigated issues regarding frame rate changes would affect the accuracy and the rapid fire performance of some weapons.

- Fixed a bug with online matches where an opponent AC would not render if decals were applied.
- Fixed a bug in the mission “Escape” where some events failed to trigger.

The patch also makes corrections regarding the REPLAY MISSION tutorial text. The issue was that it did not properly explain the conditions for achieving an S-Rank rating. The text now reads as follows: “To achieve an S-Rank rating, you must complete the mission without retrying from a checkpoint, while also destroying a large number of enemy targets and minimizing incoming damage, time taken, and ammunition consumed.”
