How to Beat the Smart Cleaner Armored Core 6
You will immediately notice that the Smart Cleaner has two weak points. There’s a small one in the front, which is guarded by the Smart Cleaner’s huge deadly arms. The other is on top and is a bit easier to hit. Although it is possible to attack head-on, there are fewer openings and it is generally a riskier approach.
To effectively scale the Smart Cleaner, you’ll want to stand directly above it. While you’ll want to watch out for the fireballs the Smart Cleaner spews out, a few good hits with a Bazooka or Missiles will quickly stagger the boss. With the offset Smart Cleaner, you can take advantage of the front weak point.
At this point, you’ll want to unleash a combination of attacks. This will cause very serious damage to the Smart Cleaner. If you rinse and repeat this process several times, the Smart Cleaner will be gone in no time. Just make sure to watch out for those huge arms and stay in the air as much as possible.
