Armored Core 6 may start off fairly simply as you take down a few helicopters and mass-produced mechs, but it's not long until the game gets drastically more difficult - making nabbing all of the achievements and trophies in Armored Core 6 just as tough as it is in many other FromSoft games.

Between tough bosses, alternate endings, and the needle-in-a-haystack scavenger hunt for Combat Logs, there are plenty of tasks to complete in Armored Core 6 - and you'll need to finish them all for every achievement. That makes the Platinum trophy a tough ask, so prepare to spend plenty of time in the latest mech game.

Here's the full list of the Armored Core 6 achievements and trophies, as well as a few words on the difficulty of earning the Platinum.

How many achievements & trophies are there for Armored Core 6?

There are 29 achievements or trophies in total that you can earn in Armored Core 6, which isn't too bad when considering the length of the game.

Most of the trophies in the game have to do with completing certain missions, achieving specific endings, and collecting parts for your mech.

While the game's Combat Log missions for the Loghunt quest are potentially missable on your first playthrough, the ability to replay missions will prove useful for these, and hitting S-Rank.

How difficult is the Armored Core 6 platinum?

Getting your hands on the Armored Core 6 platinum is difficult, as it requires you to play through the game at least three times, and achieve an S-rank on every single mission that is available. The S-rank part is particularly challenging, as it requires you to not die when going through a level, which is far easier said than done when it comes to many of the bosses.

Expect to make liberal use of the mission replay option, especially when finding those Combat Logs!

So, that wraps up this list of the Armored Core 6 achievements, showing you how to get every trophy in the game and how difficult the platinum is overall.
