The remaining five Titans in Titanfall 2 have all been detailed.


Titanfall 2 developer Respawn has been on a roll recently when it comes to news from the upcoming game. We were first treated to an action-heavy trailer that confirmed the names of all six Titans in the game.

A few days after, the studio detailed Legion, one of the heavy Titans. Today, we get to take a look at the remaining five: Scorch, Ion, Northstar, Tone, and Ronin.

Starting off with Scorch, which was available in the beta, this Titan has a mix of offensive and defensive abilities. The incendiary trap is its main ability, which it can then light on fire using the main weapon. Scorch’s defensive ability is the thermal shield, and its ultimate is the massive flame core, which allows it to send a big wave of fire in front of it.

Next, we have Ion. This Titan has the ability to divert power between its three main weapons. Its main weapon is the splitter fire machine gun, with the vortex shield as a defence. Ion also has a laser weapon attached to its left shoulder that can one-shot pilots.

Ion’s ultimate is the laser core ability, which is a big laser that comes out of its chest and does massive damage.

Now for Northstar, one of the more agile Titans available. Northstar is a sniper mainly, and has the ability to fly. Its plasma railgun is basically a sniper rifle, which can be charged. The tether trap ability can be used in conjunction with the hover ability to trap Titans in place and land massive damage from a above.

Tone is a slow-firing Titan that rewards accurate play. Its main weapon is a 40MM tracker cannon that fires single shots, which can then be followed up by tracker rockets. Tone’s ability is a sonar that reveals other Titans through walls.

Tone also has one of the more unique defensive abilities out there, it can drop its shield anywhere on the map and doesn’t need to hold it.

Finally, we have Ronin, the slick sword-wielding Titan from the reveal trailer. Ronin is equipped with a shotgun-style weapon called leadwall, and the arc wave sword. This sword can be used to block enemy bullets as well as attack them using a designated ability.

Ronin can also teleport using the phase dash ability. Its ultimate is sword core, which is a massive sword finisher.

Titanfall 2 is out October 28 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
