Battle Operation Code Fairy Beginner’s Guide
Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Code Fairy is the latest Gundam game available for PS4 and PS5, based on the Universal Century (UC) Gundam timeline. As such, it dates back to the beginning of mobile suit combat and is not friendly to newcomers to the series. Fortunately, we have a few points to get you in shape in combat and make the Federation (ESFS) regret its decision to attack.
Keep in mind that this is only a beginners guide and there is more to the game than just that, but until then you won’t need our help anymore. Seig Zeon!
Learn the damage triangle.
The damage system in Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Code Fairy is based on what I call the “Damage Triangle” and is essential to progression. There are several types of Mobile Suits in the game; Raid, general and support. Understanding these types is essential to repairing the damage instead of wasting your time. At the start of the game, you receive a Raid-type Zaku, and the missions will throw a variety of enemies at you. Most of whom are general, against whom you are weak. Learning what is right for you can quickly damage instead of wasting your ammo is a time saver.
Eventually you will have access to other Mobiel combinations, but the damage triangle does not change.
Don’t forget to equip these items.
Throughout the game, you will receive rewarded items that can be used to upgrade your mobile suit. The problem is, the game doesn’t do a good job of letting you know what it’s all about or that you can equip yourself, so you’ll have to do some experimentation. Before each outing, you will have the opportunity to customize your mobile suit, and it is here that you can not only change your weapons, but also equip these items.
These items range from increasing your damage resistance, increasing your melee and ranged damage, adding extra hit points, and more. To equip these items, open the customization screen on the melee you selected, click on the Custom Parts field, then you can add these items.
Remember to equip them, as it can be the difference between succeeding or failing a mission.
Don’t change your primary weapon.
While the bazooka you start out with might seem slow, and it is, it’s powerful as well. It can deal splash damage to multiple enemies while also dealing high damage to single targets (in the damage triangle I talked about above). You might be tempted to turn it off due to the slow speed, but don’t. You can rely on a team and you can order them to attack weak targets relative to your damage by pressing “O”.
Do not spam this attack button.
The Zaku you start with aren’t the most graceful machines and don’t do anything quickly. Movements, rotations, and attacks are painfully slow, as is weapon reloading. You will want to learn not to spam the attack button, or you will be at the mercy of the enemy.
Capturing beacons and preparing for combat.
Although the game gives you an overview of capturing beacons and repairing them, I want to stress that this is very important for winning battles. Therefore, you’ll want to make sure you capture every beacon you find, because you’ll never know when you’ll need them to fix them. Even if you think you won’t need them, capture them. Just make sure you capture them while the enemy is not there; your squishy character will not be able to take the damage.
Also, beacons are not permanent repairs for you. Once you use them, they won’t come back. So use them sparingly if you can.
