Armored Core [PSX]
There are some *death bonuses* in AC. to do this, you must first die with a balance of -50,000 or more. Then you should see some some lights in a hospital. then the lights turn on and when it loads, you get all the parts you had before you wrecked your AC and wit no missions completed.

No limit bonus:
Complete over 100 sorties with a greater than 90% win record and an over all rating of 98% or more. Unlimited leg weight points, core weight points, and generator output points will be allowed. Note: Ignore the overweight warning.
Get Human Plus mode a few times. Draw your sword and press X (jump) just before the downslash. If done correctly, you will fire the fabled "wave" that all of the higher ranked ACs use. To fire the "blue wave of mass destruction", simply do this trick with the Moonlight blade. It can do over 1000 AP worth of damage.
Multiple missile lock:
If you have a set of missiles or rockets, a laserblade, and an FCS with more than one lock-on, go to the test ,a mission, or vs. Mode. Lock onto an enemy with the rockets/missiles. Press Circle from a far distance. The lock-on square will disappear, come back, and lock on a second time. Do this a couple times until it does not go any higher. When you shoot, you will shoot more times at once. For example, if you have the TRYX-QUAD FCS,you can lock on up to four times. When you lock on four times and shoot, you will shoot four times as much as a normal shot.
When you build your AC, you will notice that there is a weight limit on the selected legs. To override this, just finish the game so the overall % under system reads 100%. To do this, you must complete every mission, get every secret part, and defeat every ranking Raven you encounter. Keep in mind that while you can load any leg type with whatever you want after you get 100%, your speed will decrease about 2 1/2 for every hundred pounds that you are overweight.

Shoot through city building:
Equip the grenade launcher in two player split screen mode at the city location. Move right up next to a building and face directly at it. Fire a grenade at the other player's AC unit. The projectile will pass through the building without exploding. The building will also protect you from incoming fire. Note: This does not work if you are at an angle -- you must be facing it perpendicularly.
