Armored Core 6 has some permanent upgrades players can unlock called OS upgrades. Here are all the OS upgrades in the game.
Armored Core 6 takes the game back to its roots with modern-day controls. From Software’s niche project, Armored Core has had many releases for different console generations. But the company itself or the armored core series never had any mainstream exposure. With their latest release game, Elden Ring, the company has received a lot of exposure. With that, Armored Core 6 tries to reach a newer audience while capturing the older ones too.
Armored Core 6 keeps the basic combat from its previous games. But the controls have been changed to fit the modern standard. The game has a faster movement than any other AC game. This game also features an arena that will have you earn OS chips. These can be used for permanent upgrades for your AC. Here, we have listed all the OS upgrades you can do in the game.

Armored Core 6 features a lot of different OS upgrade options. Even after beating the whole area and collecting all the chips, you will not be able to get all the permanent upgrades. So, you need to choose which one to get. Fortunately, it features a reset button, which, for some costs, resets all the upgrades and gives back all your upgrade chips.
