I’ve compiled a list below of facts, tips, and general knowledge about Titanfall that the general audience may not know. Have your own suggestions? Leave them in the comments below, and enjoy!
Head into the settings menu and you will see a few controller layout options, as well as the auto-sprint settings. As a pilot, players will never get winded, and can sprint the entire map. Maneuverability and agility are hands-down one of the most important tactics in Titanfall, and auto-sprint is there to help. There are three settings: Manual (which is standard), delay, and always sprint. With the delay setting, players will begin to sprint automatically after walking a short distance. With always sprint, players will automatically sprint any time the joystick is pressed forward. Toggle your settings and find what best suits you!
Have the fast-learner (double XP) burn card activated? Learn to farm XP from the environment to rack up those experience points without ever engaging in a firefight! In Titanfall, players can destroy militia dropships, hack mega-turrets and spectres, kill “flyers” and even destroy search drones. Check out my video below to see a few of these in action.
Arc Cannon Defense
Ever heard the term, “defense is the best offense”? When using your Titan’s primary weapon, the Arc Cannon, this statement holds especially true. You can exhaust a players vortex shield and particle wall with a fully charged Arc Cannon blast, and if you are quick enough, you can even zap down incoming projectiles, such as the cluster missile, before they make contact. The Arc Cannon is also great for wiping out squads of AI with a single shot, so you can continue to focus on enemy pilots and titans with minimal distraction.
Charge that Bull
When rodeo-ing a Titan, it’s important to know which weapon to use to take down the Titan. Using a smart pistol may take far too long, and using a sidewinder will hurt yourself with splash damage. One of the more versatile anti-tian weapons, the Charge Rifle, is great for rodeo kills, and doesn’t have splash damage. Two to three Charges with an amped charge rifle will take down a Titan with ease, and this can really turn the tide in game modes like Last Titan Standing.
Ammo capacity has proven to not be much of an issue in Titanfall, but if you are using ordnance regularly, keeping stocked is a high priority for you. Any time you hop into your titan, your ammunition and ordnance is reloaded, and this can lead to lethal effects. A great tactic to help take down a Titan is to spam it with arc grenades. Stay close to your titan and you can replenish your ordnance each time you hop in, providing an endless array of arc grenades to get under the skin of that opposing Titan.
Titanfall Companion App
Respawn Producer, Drew McCoy confirmed to the community that a companion app would be coming soon, during one of his flights via twitter. McCoy stated that it was unfortunate the app didn’t make the launch release date, but an upcoming patch will have the details. Additionally, McCoy informed players that they will soon be able to assign colors to their teammates, in an upcoming patch as well.
AOG Scope Ammo Count
Several primary weapons, and their scope attachments keep an ammo count while firing, so you know exactly when to go back into cover or reload. Here is a snapshot of the AOG scope on the Longbow DMR. The blue circle around the scope depletes and turns red as your ammo count runs low.
