  • Some Combat Logs are only unlocked in the New Game+ and New Game++. These are the second and third endings, respectively.
  • Acquiring these Combat Logs will increase your Loghunt Tier and unlock special rewards.
  • Finally, you will get the “Elite Hunter” Decal once you obtain all logs.

The Loghunt Program

Loghunt Armored Core 6 and what are Combat Logs are words you will come by a lot. But What do they mean? You will unlock The Loghunt Program and get access to it once you complete Operation Wallclimber—a prompt message welcoming you to the program.

You will only get the prompt in your first playthrough of the game, though. As you acquire more Combat Logs, your Tier will increase.

Other than the normal enemies that you usually will find in missions, there will also be special enemies in missions. These enemies are special, and you will likely find them not far from the normal mission path.

Once you find these unique enemies, you will see them marked with a special Loghunt sign. Eliminating them will complete the Combat Log.

Each Mission will have one, multiple, or no Combat logs. Some Combat Logs will only unlock once or twice after you complete the whole game playthrough once or even twice. So, to unlock all of these Combat Logs, you must check every single mission thoroughly.

But for some Combat Logs, you must complete the game up to 3 times.

Therefore, we have listed each available Combat log and its location. We also described how to find the special enemies you need to defeat. One important thing to notice is that you can always replay your completed missions. You can also check the results to see the Loghunt’s status.

A Combat Log can have three statuses. In the mission results, you will find it under the name “Battle Log.” Here are the details for each of them.

# Status Description
1 Blank/No Status This means that there are no Combat Logs available for this mission. This might change after you complete the game once or twice.
2 PENDING This status means that there still are enemies left. They hold Combat Logs, but you have not obtained them yet.
3 COMPLETED If you see this status, you have successfully acquired all available Combat Logs in the mission!

Unlocking Second & Third Endings

There are a total of 6 Combat Logs exclusive to the second and third endings. These are called New Game+ and New Game++, Respectively. You will need to make the opposite decision to get the Second ending.

This is related to the ones you made in your first game playthrough. You must also choose the “REFUSE” option when prompted in Mission 06: Attack the Dam Complex.

For the Third Ending, choose the “ACCEPT” option in Mission 06: Attack the Dam Complex. This way, you can unlock all three endings and get every combat log. You can also utilize the mission replay option. This way, you can complete any combat logs you might have missed on the first try.

I have divided the list for the following Combat Logs: all Chapters, New Game+ (Second Ending), and New Game++ (Third Ending).

Completing the Combat Logs before you end the final objectives of each mission is important. If you do not complete the mission, the combat logs you have acquired during the mission will not count. This will cause you to lose progress.

My Recommendation

I think that loghunts are one of the best ways to get the best parts faster. This is especially true in the earlier stages where you don’t have many parts at your disposal. I have also found it very useful to replay missions to collect missed loghunts as you get the mission rewards again as well as the loghunt rewards.
