After watching this, you’ll feel infinitely worse about your 50 and 40 second runs.
Titanfall 2 starts off with a tutorial that gets you reacquainted with the basics of movement as well as the shooting model. After you finish it, the NPC teaching you opens up a training course you have to clear before you can proceed.
It’s called the Gauntlet, and it was available in the tech test as well. Just like the obstacle course in Modern Warfare 4, this one tracks your progress and puts your time on a leaderboard.
You don’t need fancy tricks to clear it, but the best runs are achieved by knowing exactly what to do in each section, and executing flawlessly. In the video below, YouTuber Gamesager manages to clear it at 20.6 seconds.
As you can see, he starts off showing a “basic” run that’s easy to execute, which averages just below 30 seconds. Then, he moves into the real deal, using the EPG. He’s gotten so good Respawn put his name on the list.
Titanfall 2 is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
