Face Off is the fifth and last of the Trial Missions in Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies.


The mission objective is to shoot down all five of Yellow Squadron's aircraft. Yellow Squadron will not attack the player, and will always start off facing the player aircraft before turning left (the player's right hand side).

S Rank

An S rank for this mission requires completing the mission within 20 seconds.[1][2] The player should exploit the Yellow Squadron's fixed flight pattern at the very start of the mission and shoot down all aircraft before they start to react.
