Ace Combat 7: Score / Time Requirements To Earn S-Rank In Every Mission

To totally complete Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, you’ll need to earn S-Ranks in every single mission. Doing so will get you a few final nicknames and the Sol emblem you can slap onto your aircraft. This is strictly for singleplayer stuff, but it’s a fun challenge and a good reason to return to the campaign for another (second, third, or fourth) round of play. It’s a short game, so maximizing your gameplay is important!

First of all, one of the best weapons available is the PLSL laser pod. This thing carries a ton of ammo, is very long range, and can destroy anything with enough sustained fire. You can S-Rank most missions with any of the high-level fighters, but anything carrying the PLSL (like the SU-57) is a very good choice. It’s how I personally managed to blast all 24 Aces.
