How to save a loadout in Armored Core 6

Once you've perfected your mech design in Armored Core 6, you can save your loadout as a preset with the following steps:

  1. Exit out of the Assembly screen.
  2. In the Garage, navigate to AC Design -> AC Data.
  3. Click on a blank save slot in the AC Data screen.
  4. Give your loadout a name and click Confirm.

The AC Data screen is split into four User tabs, as well as a Preset tab containing the builds of various NPC Armored Cores you've encountered so far in the campaign. Each of the User tabs can house up to 40 loadouts, so you have plenty of space to build and save different mech loadouts so you can switch between them whenever you like.

To load a loadout in Armored Core 6, just head back to the AC Data screen, select the loadout you wish to load, and click "Load".

You can also change the save location if you want to move it to one of the other "User" tabs.

That's all you need to know to start saving and loading your own custom preset mech loadouts in Armored Core 6. XXX
