What Is EN Shortfall In Armored Core 6

If you are suffering from a severe EN Shortfall, here is how to increase your mech's EN Load in Armored Core 6.

One of the many challenges you will face while building your best mech in Armored Core 6 is dealing with EN Load or EN Shortfall. Both are the opposite sides of the same coin.

Every mech build needs to be balanced. If you improve one aspect too much, you will sacrifice another. You cannot have everything for your AC6 mech.

Hence, you are definitely going to run into an EN Shortfall while trying to attach more powerful parts to your mech. When that happens, you can counter that by increasing your EN Load in Armored Core 6.

How EN Shortfall happens in Armored Core 6

When building or customizing your mech in the game, you will notice that every part will have different indications in the statistical panel.

The Current EN Load bar is towards the bottom right. If it surpasses the indicated arrow, you will trigger EN Shortfall.

When you have an Excess EN Load, (it exceeds the indication arrow) it simply means that your EN supply efficiency will be low and your mech won’t recharge at the rate it is supposed to. All the parts are connected to the Load, requiring juice to run.

If this happens, you won’t be able to participate in battles or arenas. Dealing with this requires you to make tough choices and sacrifice one part for another.

How to increase EN Load in Armored Core 6

To counter the EN Shortfall, you must increase your EN Load by understanding your core’s and generator’s EN output in Armored Core 6.

You can build your Core and generator to produce maximum EN output that can conclusively increase your EN Load. Equip both parts with parts that offer higher EN stats.

However alarming the Shortfall prompt may appear in the AC6 Assembly panel, the solution is easy. We will categorically suggest the best EN-producing items.


For core, we can suggest VE-40A and 07-061 MIND ALPHA. They offer one of the best rates of EN output in Armored Core 6 and should be equipped if the shortfall is evident.


For generators, we can suggest the VP-20S, VP-20D, and VP-20C. These similarly named items will be very beneficial for generating maximum EN output, which can help you increase EN load in your battles throughout AC6.
