Face Off[1] is the 5th and last of the Trial Missions in Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies. The player is tasked with shooting down a flight of five Yellow Squadron members as fast as possible.


Upon spawning, the player will be facing five Yellow pilots who have their backs to the player. They will immediately roll right and fly east for a few seconds before breaking formation to freely engage the player.[1] The player must shoot down all five Yellows to complete the mission.

S Rank

Earning an S Rank on this mission requires shooting down all five targets in less than 20 seconds.The Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies - Official Guide Book specifically recommends using the QAAM special weapon to dispatch the squadron, but not firing on them until after they complete their eastward turn, since firing in the middle of that turn may cause the QAAM to miss on the first pass.[1]
