Hidden AC Head
It can be found in the Mission DESTROY BERSERK MTs. The head is located in a storeroom near the path to the computer. you can destroy the crates or jump over the crates to the left side of the door.
Hidden Back Part
In the mission: Cavern invasion - after destroying the sub arena member check your map there should be the entrance you used to enter the cavern where you fight the ac at and another exit. Take the other exit and look for a big room with several roof mounted guns. At the back of that room is a new back weapon.
On the level where you must find and destroy a Raven inside of a cavern, there is a hidden part. On the way to where the Raven is, you will reacha fork going left and right. If you head right, you will find the Raven. If you follow the path left, you will enter a room that has a part in the corner. The part is a new shoulder mounted disk-launching weapon. This is one of the three hidden parts in this game. One of the other hidden parts has already been sent in, and is also in this category. The third hidden part is found in the mission where you must assist yellow MT's being attacked by black MT's. On this map, the best way to get the additional part is to kill _5_ of the enemy MT's, leaving one alive. This will allow you to have enough time to find the part. In the area, there is a building with columns in front of it. If you attack the building enough, it will explode, exposing a hole. Jump in and proceed forward. You will reach an intersection! . Head left, and you will find a dead end. Attack the wall, and it will explode. In front of you lies the last hidden part.
hen you Start the Level You will be in a sort of a hallway go through it untill you reach a room. (I think there was an enemy in it). Once you've gotten into the room look up and you should see a hole in the top of the room!!! Fly up there kill any enemys and you should be at a fork in the path. I think you need to go left and you should enter a room with turrents on the top of it. Ignore them an search all of the corners and you will find a back weapon
Secret FCS location
The secret FCS in Armored Core MOA is located in the mission Assist MTs. First leave one enemy alive after that is done locate the building that looks like a bank or a church (on your map it will have a tunnel under it). Blow that building up and go down into the hole beneath it head straight until you come to a junction take the left path. when you reach what looks like a dead end shoot the wall but be careful you don't destroy the FCS and after the wall is destroyed wall walk into the shrine and up to the altar and take the FCS after that get back out of there and kill the last enemy.
More hidden parts
Here's a tip to get more Parts & weapons: Get PROGTECH to sponsor you into the Sub-arena: As far as I know, there are two parts: Energy Machine gun, a small but powerful Hand gun. Note: PROGTECH will give you a laserblade via E-mail and Credits.
Next, there will be a mission that will ask you to recover a stolen item and at the same time, Destroy an Arena contender, The Wolf. After the mission, PROGTECH will give you another weapon; a Laser Sniper rifle, this weapon is much more powerful than the Karasawa but the ammo is short 10 rounds.
In the Arena there are 2 parts to get by defeating certain Ravens. 1. A V-shaped laser weapon and it is a shoulder weapon. 2. A head part that looks like one in the beginning intro Video
Arena Specific Hidden Parts and Extra Arena Categories
While earning victories in teh Arena and EX Arena modes, you will definately notice that you earn new parts that you cannot buy at the shop. These parts are often useful if applied correctly, but that's another matter. When you win certain matches in teh regular arena mode, you sometimes win these based on the difficulty and the opponents ranking. In the EX-Arena however, equipment is given out differently. By winning an entire leg category, you will be awarded with _ONE_ new type of leg the corresponds with the tournament you entered. For example, if you win the Humanoid legs category, you will get a new set of human legs. Three of the ??? categories are unlocked by actions on the other CD. One, the Master group is unlocked when you complete the missions with 100% complete which means success on all of them with all th hidden parts found. This group is chock-full of REALLY difficult AC's with weapons you have never seen before, and they are _REALLY_ ! _HARD_ to defeat. Two others, Guest and Champion are opened when you finish the Arena and Sub-Arena modes on the first CD. Guest is composed of AC's made by writers of japanese magazines, and Champion is made up of AC's that were entered are won tournaments in Japan. The final group, FROMSOFTWARE, is unlocked when you beat all the leg catagories.
