Titanfall Tips From Microsoft

Sure, the first half of this Titanfall tips video from Microsoft is mostly just hype. But in the second half they have included a few simple but worthwhile pointers.

Some of the ideas are similar to the tips we've already shared , but three of them are small new ideas worth keeping in mind. To paraphrase the best pointers:

1) Use the AI soldiers to your advantage. The AI soldiers aren't just there for an easy little XP boost — you can use them to your advantage in a couple of ways. For starters, enemy grunts tend to belie the location of enemy pilots, so follow the grunts to find the pilots. Secondly, crafty players can usually crouch and mimic the AI patterns of friendly grunts (do a lot of kneeling) and fool enemy pilots who skip over grunts while looking for more dangerous prey. I've done that latter move quite a bit, and it works pretty well.

2) Rodeo smart. Rodeoing an enemy titan is super fun, but you want to stay mindful of where the titan's pilot has gotten to. If he or she ejects to come out and fight you, immediately jump off and get ready to fight back. Even better, start a rodeo with a titan ready to drop and then, when the enemy pilot ejects, call in titanfall immediately to crush his titan. Boom. I now really, really want to pull that trick off in a game.

3) Hang off walls. This one's one me for not reading the instruction manual, but I didn't realise that you could pause mid-wall-run by hitting LT and hang on the wall, aiming and firing. In general, mastering the wall-run is going to be the thing that separates the better Titanfall players from the lesser players, and the ability to hang and fire offers even more versatility to an already versatile system.

And there you have 'em: three more small tips. Be sure to check out our main tips article for more pointers on how to do well in the game, and happy rodeoing.


    did not know about the wall hang

      Yeah you hold down LT and it grabs on to the wall if I recall from the alpha

        do you have to be near an edge or lip or can he/she just grab a flat wall? how long for?

        short clip I made during a pretty good run yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEdno-L2vmI&list=LLQWlXT_DTxI_YC9q8a0-Vnw

          Any flat wall as far as I know, particularly deadly above door ways muuhaha

          there's a perk that lets you hang and wall run longer as well :D

    Why would you titanfall as they eject? Titanfall and crush them!

    Also I've actually found the pistol to be better for rodeo, reloads ridiculously quickly, just requires almost seizure levels of trigger pulling :p

      Think he means 'get out' to shoot you off not eject like they are in doomed state, because when they jump out they are no longer in control of their titan, until they put it in follow/guard mode, so their titan will be powered down and wont be a moving target for your 'Titanfall' to crush them.

    There is an achievement for titanfalling on another piloted titan, it's not too hard :)

      yea Death from Above, I managed to get it, but guess that way its guaranteed to take out their Titan??

    Great to see XBone exclusives! Oh wait... What would motivate Microsoft to pretend it's not on PC?

    Oh, captive market... right.
