How to Find All 24 Aces in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

Conditions for the appearance of all Aces, mission titles and their location


To unlock the ‘’Bird of Prey’’ achievement in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, you will have to find and destroy 24 Aces. These professional and dangerous pilots will appear only at certain levels and only if you perform hidden tasks. There’s another condition – the storyline mission must be completed at least once before you can deal with them.

As an additional reward, you will get various skins for customizing fighters. Besides the achievement, you will receive a secret skin X-02S Strike Wyvern when you destroy all Aces.
