Titan Assault Tactics
As soon as the enemy shields go down, get on board no matter what kit you have. The best way to board a titan is via APC. Even if you are rushing the enemy titan, try to steer the APC somewhere where it will be parked without being immediately destroyed by the enemy titan guns if possible as a courtesy to your teammates.
If you are the squad leader, you should place a beacon on the enemy titan. There are few legitimate reasons for not placing a beacon on an enemy titan. Even if you decide later to silo hop, leaving the beacon on the enemy titan reserves your options.
preferred titan assault kit is support.
I usually go with a sentry gun and the rdx
If the hallway is empty, I usually place a sentry at the mouth of the hallway and rush down it while reloading. By the time I get to the base, I can place another sentry closer to where the soldiers will be coming from.
Always blow consoles 1 and 2 first. In first strike scenario’s, if I am playing with other people, I prefer to split up initially and try to blow 1 and 2 first. While it is tempting to stick together, you should leverage your first strike advantage unless you hear the whir of a sentry. Attack the console shields in 3 & 4 as a back up in the event that the titan corridors are heavily defended.
you blow corridors 3 & 4, you need to rush in as
fast as possible. When
rushing in, I
always have a sentry ready to go and drop it first.
I do this even if it means risking getting
killed. Setting up
a sentry to cover the
primary entrance to the core is critical.
If there is one medic, two assaults, and a recon, you
should be able to
easily blow the core. Most
of the time,
you are lucky just to have another recon.
I often type to request one once I am in the core.
Titan corridor nade spamming nest with sentries.
Corridor’s one and two can be almost impossible to crack if people set up a decent nade spam, sentry combination. As a defender, I can expect to get combat efficiency pins easily. As an attacker, you have to figure out how many defenders are in the corridor. If you are looking at more than 4 defenders, you probably will not get passed them.
Several variations on a strategy can be tried. One player can draw the fire of the sentry’s by moving towards the hallway first and sitting in the corner near the mouth by the boxes that lead up towards the core. This will allow the other players to rush without the sentry, but they still have to deal with the nade spams. A rush into the hallway can sometimes be accompanied by a grenade toss or setting up a sentry pointing down the hallway. A sentry facing down the hallway will at least pin down the enemy defenders a bit. Remember that all you need to do is get a foothold in the corridor and then hold it until others begin to head down the hallway. A medic is an excellent addition to any corridor assault team.
Don't forget to attack console shields in corridors 3 & 4. A team of supply kits and engineers can take the shields down if they work together. It takes 14 pilum shots on the shields to destroy consoles 1 & 2. Working together can get the job done. Watch the video on advanced techniques.
The good news is that an overwhelming titan defense is the perfect opportunity to take the silos. When the opposing team over-commits to defense, the team can usually take control of the silos. This is a perfect time for a silo counterstrike. It sometimes helps to keep a small one or two person crew attacking to maintain the ruse of a titan assault while the rest of the team turns silos. This is also a time for creative assault practices. Experiment with the apm mines and the decoy beacon, ghosting, sentry traps in corridors you do not even need. Anything to keep the enemy confused and wondering what you are doing. While they asked themselves these questions, your team can change the silos easily.
