You probably know that multiplayer in Titanfall 2 relies on a combination of your skills as a Pilot, as well as your tactics when fighting from inside towering Titans.

In the video above, Alex goes over a few basic tips and a couple of lesser-known, or not immediately obvious mechanics.

For starters, many don’t realise that there are two modes for each Titan you call in, when you’re not directly controlling them. You can either have it defend you, or just follow you around.

The Assault Kit, one of the kits you can equip your Titans with, makes the automated-Titan more accurate. Even then, it’s best you jump inside when you see another player-controlled Titan approaching.

The next tip covers rodeoing, which is what happens when you jump on another player’s Titan. If it’s an enemy, you will automatically get into an animation that lets you steal a battery from the enemy Titan.

If you already have a battery picked up, jumping on a friendly Titan will automatically insert that battery into their Titan, granting them a shield. You can also do the same with your own Titan.

There are two Titan kits you should also be aware of. The first is called Warpfall, and it makes the Titan you called in land pretty quickly, but takes away the bubble shield. This makes it easier to land it on top of enemies for an easy kill, but it also means you have to be around to jump in ASAP.

Nuclear Ejection allows you to use your Titan’s core as a nuclear bomb, detonating it to damage surrounding enemies. You can only do this when your Titan is in a doomed state, which it gets into when it takes too much damage, just before it explodes.

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