Titanfall Guide, Tips and Tricks: How to Dominate in Every Map

Titanfall

Titanfall features multiple classes, weapons, maps and game modes. As obvious, each class displays a different set of weapons/abilities and each specific battlefield has its own tactics. However, there are numerous general strategies that warranty players’ dominance independently of the class and map chosen. In fact, it’s all about tactical positioning, approaching and movement. The game has a quite balanced combat system and every pilot-titan combination has its own strong and weak points.

If you’re wondering how to dominate everywhere without having to make a strategy plan for each map, then you probably should follow the tips and tricks stated below.

TF21. Follow the Objectives [General]

I know most players can’t resist the temptations of open-fire encounters. But each match has its own specific objectives and if you don’t follow them, you’ll most likely fall behind. Apart from the Attrition deathmatch mode, you should look forward to accomplish the main goal before the enemy team does. Even if your score is not the best, at least you won’t end up in the losing side.

2. Use and Abuse the Minimap [General]

Titanfall’s minimap is a precious relic that should get all your attention. This tool will provide the most crucial information about the battlefield. It will display nearby IA (small orange and red dots) and player enemies (big red dots and triangles). And it will also inform you about the game mode’s objectives and your team’s performance.

3. Seek Higher Ground [Pilot]

Tactical positioning can be quite tedious sometimes but it really pays off at medium-long periods of exposure. It’s true that you’ll get vulnerable at higher grounds, since you won’t be able to move a lot or take proper cover, but on the other hand, you can easily spot enemy pilots and take them down from afar. Besides, you’ll have a general view of the match and the possibility to decide where to go next.

The more you move, the harder it is for enemies to hit you or fatally wound you. As in every FPS game, moving is one of the main keys to survive and in Titanfall this element’s value has been intensified. Running and jumping are not the only options towards a dynamic posture anymore. Players can now use a set of pilot maneuvers, such as wall running, double jumping and mantling.

5. Permanently Look for Cover [General]

Covering yourself is probably the most efficient way to survive deadly blows and constant fire. Some maps don’t provide huge amounts of cover places, however you should always keep in mind that open spaces are your worst enemy. If you remain covered while in combat, you’ll at least have a chance to react and fight back.

6. Take Advantage of Environmental Elements [General]

Apart from the innumerous objects that can work as cover places, Titanfall displays an interactive environment that can help you survive or reach certain places faster. For example, the zip lines spread over several maps will certainly help you travel between points in a much faster way.

If you shoot your enemies from long distances, there’s a huge chance that they won’t know where you’re shooting from at a first glance. Furthermore, you’ll have the surprise element with you – with the proper gear and a fierce aim, picking kills this way will be a piece of cake!

8. Exploit Your Enemy’s Weaknesses [General]

Dissimilarity doesn’t just bring superior points, it also brings inferior ones and in Titanfall every strong trait is followed by a weak one. You should always identify your opponent’s class and build and immediately counter him. For example, CQB pilots are extremely powerful at close encounters; try to take them down from afar.

9. Apply Pilot’s Reverse Psychology When You Engage in Titan Mode [Titan]

When commanding a titan, instead of having a dynamic posture and a cover instinct, you should focus on getting the most kills possible while absorbing damage and dodging deadly blows. It’s a question of taking the most profit from your titan before it goes down.

If you realize that several enemies are approaching you, then the best thing to do is to run towards your allies or seek cover and try to take them down one by one. The second option is rather risky but very rewarding if successfully done. Note that you can use specific tactics to counter massive numbers; one of them is the frag grenade.

11. Rodeo Titans [Pilot]

Titans are quite hard to kill, especially if you’re using your pilot but there’s a simple trick that can take down titans in a blink of an eye – the rodeo maneuver. This tactic is generally deadly for enemy titans, since your pilot will climb into the titan’s back and inflict a lethal attack that will either disable or kill the machine.

12. Dodge Incoming Fire [Titan]

Surprisingly, pilots can’t dodge enemy attacks but titans can. Titans have the ability to instantly perform a sideways slide that is particularly helpful against rocket and gunfire.

In Titanfall grenades don’t have a detonator but you can manually blow them off. This trick is particularly deadly against ejected pilots. To trigger this event, you must launch a grenade and shoot it using a Smart Pistol Mk5.

14. Cloak When in Trouble [Pilot]

Cloaking is a general skill for all pilots and it’s mostly effective against titans. If you enable this ability in front of enemy pilots, they’ll still be able to spot you, however enemy titans have no way to detect invisible targets, so if you’re in trouble don’t hesitate.

Titanfall: How to Level Up Fast & Easy

Titanfall

Now that we’ve talked about how to fix Titanfall crashes and even checked out some basic Titanfall tips, it’s time to get to something that really matters: how to level up fast in Titanfall and get XP points like a pro. You probably know that a higher rank in the game offers a lot more options and makes the entire game a lot more fun, so we should do our best to gain more XP points and level up faster than the rest in Titanfall. Hopefully our guide will help you get through this process safe and sound (and fast), so let’s check it out below!

1. Titanfall: The Next Generation
It’s all about moving to the next generation in Titanfall and in order to do so, you will have to complete all the challenges of that generation first. A new generation will reset your rank, but will increase your XP gains by up to 350%. So simply playing the game and completing the challenges – exploring all the weapons and gear – will automatically help you level up faster. How fast this happens depends on your skill level and your desire to follow the next tips and tricks.

2. Play Last Titan Standing
The easiest way to get XP points in the beta still remains at the moment of writing an amazing option for leveling up faster so make sure you play this mode as much as possible.

3. Get Easy assist XP
I am not sure if this will be fixed eventually (probably not), but it is working now: shoot all the enemy titans that you see and move on. You don’t have to attack and destroy that titan in order to get some assist XP points when that titan dies and they all do eventually… so shoot the titans but focus on AI-controlled opponents which are easier to kill.

4. Kill other pilots
You will get a lot of XP points for killing enemy pilots and if you manage to be the first one to do it, you get even more XP. Since most of the pilots will go for AI-controlled units first, here’s a trick you can try: use the cloaking device and a silenced weapon, go where the AI units are spawned and wait for the pilots to arrive. Go for a surprise attack and you get some easy XP points!

5. Use Burn Cards
Burn Cards are not just extremely useful boosts in Titanfall, but they can also help you net some extra XP points and level up faster. Killing enemy pilots with Burn Cards activated gives you extra experience points, but the general advantages given by these cards will improve your overall game and in return help you get more XP fast.

6. Farm on AI-controlled units
In the end, the easiest way to get a ton of easy XP points is to focus on destroying the grunts controlled by the AI. Easy to kill and in large numbers, especially weak to Titans (but be aware of other pilots trying to take your titan down), the AI controlled units should be farmed intensely for maximum XP gains.
