Titanfall videos: How to dominate with the Atlas Mech & R-101C Carbine

Wednesday, 18th June 2014 15:48 GMT By Dave Cook

Titanfall can get pretty hectic and only those ready for a fight will prevail when it does. Allow resident Titanfall regular Dave Cook to guide you with his new series of tips videos, starting with the Atlas Titan and R-101C Carbine assault rifle.

In the first video, I play my Atlas Refurb Burn Card to instantly call in an Atlas mech on the map Smuggler’s Cove and lay waste to pilots and AI grunts alike.

The key thing to remember when in any Titan is that you are far from invincible, and getting ganked by tons of anti-Titan weapons or rival mechs will see you reduced to scrap in moments. You need to condition yourself to move and fight smart, using tech like the Vortex or Hard Light Shield to block incoming fire.

Boosting is also your friend, but the Atlas only gets two boosts per recharge, so you might want to use the Tier 1 Dash Recharger Kit to speed up your recovery. You can also opt for the Stryder mech as it has three dashes per charge, but suffers from having less armour.

One sneaky trick I always tell people is to equip Nuclear Ejection – essentially Martyrdom in all of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – and if you happen to get swarmed by mechs and Pilots, just walk close to the enemies then eject once you get to about 25% health. The resulting blast should score you several kills.

There’s lots more in the video. Check it out.

    I’ve been busy with Spartan Assault, Watch Dogs and Max Curse of the Brotherhood lately but this makes me want to drop a few titans, maybe I’ll play some tonight. Getting close to done on the leveling front, Gen 8 right now.
