Firing Ultimate Weapons​

Equip the Ultimate Weapon, then hold Triangle using the default control configuration. It takes some time for the weapon to get setup. The Critical Power attribute of your generator determines how quickly the weapon charges. As soon as you have begun equipping the weapon, a bar will appear at the top of the screen and quickly decrease. When that bar is empty, you will no longer be able to use the Ultimate Weapon. To fire the weapon, hold R2 until a ring forms around your firing reticule. When that ring is complete, the Ultimate Weapon will fire. Depending on how quickly the weapon equips and how fast you can charge the weapon up, you might be able to fire the weapon again before it goes offline.

Increasing Mercenary Rank​

Mercenary Rank is based entirely on your income. If you go in a mission, do not shoot anything, and do not get damaged, you will get a higher income and consequently a higher Mercenary Rank. Create an AC with a very low repair cost (using Junk Parts), and use it in such a manner.

Increasing Team's Rating​

First, get a territory. Afterwards, execute attack runs on other territories or play defense missions. Start Mission Invasion and Start Mission Stronghold (recommended) both work well.

Increasing Territory Rating​

Territory points are earned by repelling invasions from other teams. Non-Conquest Invasion missions will degrade the AP of randomly selected enemy territories (displayed as the meter on the right of your territory list, if you own them). When it reaches zero, that territory to revert back to CPU control if the owner does not increase the AP (by defending it) within a certain time period.

Stronghold missions will raise your Territory Rating (both conquest and normal). Your Territory Rating will also increase if the defenses you set up destroy enemies that invade the territory, however this is basically random. Regular Invasions will give you Team Points and damage other teams territories so that they will defend them, although which territory gets damaged is also random.
