A complete guide for Titanfall 2.
Titanfall 2 is against all odds, it seems, a great game. Respawn seem to have hit it out of the park as far as this game is concerned, especially with the single player campaign that they were talking up so much. The game seems destined to go down in history as one of the most compelling single player campaigns in the FPS genre- and it would be well deserved, too.
Of course, in all this hullaballoo about the campaign (for which you can find our walkthrough here), we forget that there’s a multiplayer mode in the game, too- and long after the campaign itself is done, the multiplayer mode is what will keep players returning to the game. In this guide, we walk you through everything that there is in the game’s multiplayer-from multiplayer tips and tricks, to leveling up and gaining XP fast, to the best Titan in the game, to the best class loadouts, to a guide to the coliseum mode, to a guide to all weapons, customizations, and camos, pilot helmets collectible locations, best weapons for beginners, to, of course, Achievements and Trophies, this guide has it all.
Let’s get started.
Multiplayer Tips and Tricks
The multilayer mode in Titanfall 2 is where you will get to face off against other Pilots and their Titans. Games in Titanfall 2 can be quite thrilling, and different from other multiplayer shooters on the market. Make sure to keep the following tips and tricks in mind as you play the multiplayer:
Evacuate your Titan. You don’t always have to stay in it, and exiting one right as it is about to explode can sometimes save your life.
Pick your Class wisely! Each Class in Titanfall 2 plays very differently- make sure you pick one that actually suits your own playstyle.
Avoid smoke. One of the easiest ways to debilitate a Titan is to get on top of it and try to lob in a grenade, or take its battery out. But when you are doing so, the Pilot will try to repel you with some electric smoke- when this happens, bail! Electric smoke can be lethal, and if you stay within its cloud, you will die.
Work on getting the Titans first. You can purchase either Titans or boosts and upgrades using the in game currency, and while having boosts and upgrades for what you do have is extremely important, work on unlocking all the Titans in the game first (there will be three left for you to buy). Titans are cheaper, and unlocking them first means you’re likely to stumble upon one that suits your play style.
Bounty Mode Guide
Deposit your money at banks- this earns your team extra points, and it also ensures that you don’t lose money when you are killed (it gets cut down to half each time you die otherwise)
Conversely, always make sure to try and target the opposing team when their players are trying to deposit their money- this way, you cut their savings, and also get more money for your team atthe same time.
Capture hardpoints- stick around until it’s amped, and you can get double the points
Being defensive is actually a viable strategy in this mode. You’ll earn points toward your titan and boost as you sit by an amped point. It’s a slow strategy, but it’s also a guaranteed point- offensive play can’t give you that
Last Titan Standing
Look into switching your Titan, gear, and even your Pilot’s loadout, between rounds- this could be helpful, and keep you on top of the game.
Teamwork is very important in this mode. Try and strike out on your own, and you’ll be one of the first players to be picked off.
You are still in the game after your Titan is destroyed- look into taking out the other Titans, and contributing to your team!
One of the many modes in Titanfall 2 is Coliseum Mode- and it’s a bit of a departure from the other game modes in that it pits Pilots against one another, 1v1, in a small, circular arena, until someone reaches 3 points. It’s actually like a bit of a fighting game in your Titanfall.
Coliseum Mode can be incredibly fun- but it’s also so different from the rest of the game that you’ll probably suffer a bit of whiplash the first time you try to play it. So to help you out, we’ve collected some basic tips and tricks, that should ease you into the transition:
Don’t rush into using your frag grenade. Instead, save it foe when it could be the most effective, maybe using it when you see your opponent Phase Shifting. Speaking of which…
Phase Shift. That can (and almost always will) throw your opponent off entirely. Combine Phase Shift with Frag Grenades for devastating results.
Melee is powerful. Use it. Remember when I said Coliseum Mode is like a fighting game? I meant it. Melee is arguably the most powerful weapon in your arsenal- use it right, and you could dominate a match.
Best Weapons For Beginners
If you’re starting out in Titanfall 2, you probably don’t want to be dominated entirely by more experienced players before you even have a chance to be comfortable with the game. That can be disheartening, and put you off of playing it further. So having an advantage that can help level the playing field a bit wouldn’t be unwelcome. These are some of the best weapons for beginners, which can help you do well in early matches:
How To Level Up And Gain XP Fast
You also want to probably catch up with the more experienced players the soonest you can- in which case, catching up to them in terms of XP and levels is what you will be looking into. The video below has some tips and tricks to maximize your XP gain:
All Weapons, Customizations, And Camos
Once you’ve got a hang of the game, you probably want to look into figuring out what weapons work the best for you yourself. The guide below will walk you through all weapons, customizations, and camos that are made available in the game:
Best Class Loadouts
That said, if you want some tips and tricks about what loadouts might be the best ones for the class of your choice, then the video below will help. It recommends some of the best loadouts for each class in the game.
Titans are awesome, and they are what sets Titanfall 2 apart from other shooters on the market- these giant mech suits can totally change the flow and the course of a game. Titanfall 2 has multiple different Titans, and all of them play dramatically differently. But which one of them is the very best one? The video below may hold some answers:
Pilot Helmets Collectibles Locations
It wouldn’t be a game released in 2016 if it didn’t have some collectibles- in Titanfall 2, the collectibles are Pilot Helmets. The video below walks you through the locations for all of them:
