Are There Cheats in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown?
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown hasn’t been out for very long. As a result, it is possible that there are cheats waiting to be uncovered, but the chances aren’t look too high. Instead, interested individuals might want to take a look at the advice distilled from other people’s play-throughs.
What Are Some Useful Tips to Keep in Mind?
For starters, the single best method for earning MRP seems to be multiplayer. Even for players with minimal experience, a few minutes of time should still be enough to provide them with tens of thousands of MRP, thus enabling them to make faster progress than otherwise possible. Otherwise, players should focus on single-player missions that provide a lot of MRP, with both Fleet Destruction and Farbanti being potential options.
Moving on, securing S ranks becomes much easier with the right plane. Generally speaking, the F22 Raptor on the central unlock path should be the most useful in this regard, not least because it can be equipped with special weapons to make it better-suited for whatever mission is under consideration. Theoretically, the experimental Wyvern is more powerful, but it isn’t as practical as the F22 Raptor, which is why the latter should be prioritized before moving on to unlock other planes.
Speaking of S ranks, those who aren’t concerned about using exploits should know a couple of important things. One, there is no penalty for reloading from checkpoints. Two, reloading from checkpoints refills special munitions. Due to this, people who find that their progress becomes much faster when they are making free use of their special munitions should know that they can keep it up for much longer than otherwise possible by making use of this exploit. Since both damage and completion time play a big role in scoring, this can make securing S ranks that much easier.
All named aircraft
Successfully complete the indicated task on the listed mission to spawn the corresponding ace (named aircraft). You must be replaying a mission already completed to get the ace (named aircraft) to spawn. Name aircraft are much more difficult to defeat than normal aircraft. Defeat all 24 named aircraft to unlock the special skin for the X-02S Strike Wyvern and the “Bird Of Prey” trophy.
