The Gauntlet is an special mission featured in Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War. It pits players against all of the Belkan ace squadrons encountered in the story.

This mission is unlocked by playing all three Ace Style variants of The Round Table, Mayhem, and The Demon of the Round Table, and is only available through Free Mission.

ObjectivesEdit

All enemy units in this mission are TGTs, therefore every enemy unit encountered must be shot down.

InitialEdit

Upon spawning, the player will encounter the Gelb Team's two Su-37s, complete with their ability to fire backwards. They will spawn directly in front of the player.

Mission Update 1Edit

The encounter during the first Mission Update is pooled from The Round Table, and depends on how fast the player shot down Gelb Team:

Less than 1 minute
Rot Team's four Typhoons, to the northwest
More than 1 minute, less than 2 minutes
Grun Team's four F/A-18Fs
More than 2 minutes
Indigo Squadron's four Gripen Cs

Mission Update 2Edit

The encounter during the second Mission Update is pooled from Mayhem, and depends on how fast the player shot down Gelb Team:

Less than 1 minute
Schwarze Team's eight MiG-31s, behind the player
More than 1 minute, less than 2 minutes
More than 2 minutes

Mission Update 3Edit

The third Mission Update will spawn Espada Team's Rafale M and J35J Draken, directly in front of the player.

Mission Update 4Edit

The encounter during the fourth Mission Update is pooled from The Demon of the Round Table, and depends on how fast the player shot down Espada Team:

Less than 1 minute
Wizard Squadron's four F-16XLs (in front of the player) and four YF-23As (behind the player)
  • If the player is playing on Ace difficulty, only the four YF-23As spawn, in front of the player. They are immediately shot down by "Mobius" (flying the signature F/A-22A), who is the new TGT for this update.
More than 1 minute, less than 2 minutes
More than 2 minutes

Shooting down the enemy units in the fourth Mission Update completes the mission.

S RankEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The background music for this mission is "Zero", from the eponymous mission.
  • While the player's ammo and damage do not reset between the Mission Updates, a Return Line is available to the south of B7R, which allows the player to land at Valais Air Base and rearm.
  • "Mobius" (believed to be Mobius 1) is the first enemy unit in the Ace Combat series to feature the ability to fire up to four missiles at once instead of two. He is also capable of performing 90-degree High-G Turns as well as firing his four-missile salvo backwards. His F-22A also features increased armor, requiring four missiles to be shot down. Shooting him down nets the player 30,000 credits, the highest amount of any single unit in Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War.
    • Funnily enough, the player will earn more total credits if they engage the full Wizard Squadron instead of Mobius.
