This list above is in the order that the replay mission menu puts them in, so it isn’t indicative of what a straight run looks like. In fact, depending on the Armored Core 6 mission, you won’t find certain ones at all if you’re on a playthrough where it doesn’t happen. It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll only play the tutorial mission on your first playthrough, as subsequent ones start on Destroy Artillery Installations and Grid 135 Cleanup.

How many Armored Core 6 missions are there?

There are 59 missions in Armored Core 6 across five chapters, including alternate missions. You can’t do all of these missions in a single playthrough, so it will take three entire runs to play them all.

Regardless, you can replay any mission you’ve already finished via the replay mission option in the Sortie menu. Doing this is the only way to get mission ranks. These go from D to S and are mostly for bragging rights (and an achievement).
