Get better at Titanfall: Top 5 mistakes players make online
1. Get off the floor
The easiest way to survive in Titanfall is to remember this simple rule: the floor is like lava. Every second you spend down on the ground the more likely you are to get burned. Even a few seconds on the floor will get yourself riddled with bullets from above – or find yourself crushed by a Titan. Get in the air, start running along walls and keep moving. It’s all part of Titanfall’s majesty.
2. Use burn cards often
Remember to use your burn cards. These one-use only cards give you extra abilities, such as the opportunity to hold damage boosting weapons or have a Spider-Man-like ability to sense danger around every corner. Thankfully, it’s incredibly easy to get new cards. Especially with the Black Market now in play – which lets players purchase rare cards with earned coin.
3. Don’t be afraid of your Titan
Titans can be called into action every two minutes, and you should call it down as soon as it’s ready. Even if you’re having way too much fun leaping between walls and snapping enemy Pilot’s necks, you can always leave it on autopilot mode. Titans really change the dynamic of games – pushing players indoors – which is perfect if you’re handy with a shotgun.
4. Experiment with loadouts
Unlike Call Of Duty, you can get by pretty effectively in Titanfall with one loadout for every situation. While it’s fun to make multiple for varying encounters, if you feel completely comfortable with an assault rifle and Active Radar Pulse – then feel free to run wild! This does mean you’ll need to spend a sizeable amount of time tinkering and tweaking your loadout, but it’s worth it in the end.
5. Combo your wallruns
We already mentioned the importance of staying off the ground – and we can’t stress that enough – but to slay it in Titanfall you need to combo movements together. You move faster while wall-running, and even faster if you can time a bunny-hop perfectly – that’s a press of the A button as soon as your feet hit the ground (keep an eye on the dip of your weapon reticule to know if you’ve got it right).
