Basic ARC, or basic all range combat, is the term given to a watered down style of ARC which was devised by nibiru to be taught to the soldiers serving his army. It is a comprehensive style which, while nowhere near as advanced or devastating as the true ARC, offers the user in question a basic ability to answer and account for everything in the situation one is engaged in a hand to hand fight. It is compulsory for all new soldiers who enlist themselves in steel seraph to complete training in basic ARC, which is taught to them by an ARC instructor.
