How To Win Guide for Titanfall 2
So you've read our guide and learned how to play Titanfall 2 - but how do you win? This guide will teach you how to win on Titanfall 2's multiplayer modes, giving you tips and tricks for each.
How to Win Bounty Hunt Mode[edit | edit source]
Bounty Hunt is a unique game mode, and winning it requires some additional considerations. Unlike other modes where the number of deaths or total points is all that matters, Bounty Hunt has a mechanic wherein players "bank" cash earned from kills. This means that a team could get all the kills ever, bank none, and still lose to the player who banked a single kill.
Because of this, you need to keep in mind this simple mantra - BANK and STEAL. When you kill another player, you steal some of their money. If you bank that money as soon as you get the chance, you can not only increase your team's chances of winning, but DECREASE their chances as well!
How to Win Amped Hard Point Mode[edit | edit source]
Amped Hard Point is about real-estate - you want to control as much as you possibly can, while maintaining your own holdings. The best strategy for dealing with this is to distribute your team in an orderly way. Your first choice is going to be capturing the points regularly - while amping is super useful, it's best used once you're in a much more secure position. Capture the points in front of you, prioritizing far points before close points in order to distract the enemy. Set up sentries to protect points, and keep in mind that Titans trump Pilots - 3 pilots are the maximum capture variable, but they can be entirely trumped by a Titan, negating this benefit.
How to Win Capture the Flag Mode[edit | edit source]
There are three main strategies to keep in mind. As a defender, your entire point is to take down flag runners and to watch your flag area. Keep the area clean, and ensure that enemies are taken down as soon after grabbing the flag. Don't worry too much about killing, though, as the bulk of your efforts should be area denial, making it harder for the enemy to traverse the narrow areas in the playfield and making any assault hard to carry out.
Another strategy is called being midfield. Midfield is all about killing - your entire goal is to suppress the enemy by killing and firing downrange, making them pay more attention to you than your flag runner. By distracting them with constant fire, you can make a path for your runner much easier.
Speaking of your runner, this is the last strategy to consider. Your runner must be agile more than anything else - capable of traversing a huge swath of space in a quick fashion, and more specifically, able to maintain their speed. Jumping, wall running, speeding up obstacles, etc., are all super important for this role, and should be practiced as part of a team as often as it can be.
How to Win Last Titan Standing Mode[edit | edit source]
This game mode is a 5v5, best of 7, one life game mode. The key to this mode is understanding where all the batteries are, since the map has a ton of batteries spread out.
In terms of general strategy, your best bet is going to be to use an agile Titan loadout, allowing you to quickly move around your enemies and flank them, keeping them off balance. Be careful of being mobbed, though, as being caught by two or more Titans in a pushing group can decimate your team, and since there's only 7 of you, this means that with each loss, your team is severely lowered in terms of projection power. Talk often with your team, and keep moving - if you don't communicate, you're going to lose some key help in protecting each other, finding more batteries, ensuring you're covered, and so forth.
How to Win Coliseum Mode[edit | edit source]
Coliseum Mode gives you a special loadout - the EPG-1, Charge Rifle, Frag Grenade, and Phase Shift. Because this loadout favors "splash" damage from explosives, your best bet is going to be using the Charge Rifle and Frag Grenades to aim at the ground of your opponent. Players often jump a lot during this game mode, so track their vertical movement, and try and get a shot off while they're landing for maximum damage. This game mode is a 1v1 type of game, so the best advice is to simply hone your talents - if you properly prepare and get in the right mindset, you should be able to take down most enemies!
How to Win Pilot vs Pilot Mode[edit | edit source]
Winning in Pilot vs Pilot mode is an 8v8 game mode with no Titans - which can be a drag for players who specialize in Titan gameplay or heavy loadouts. No worries, though, because with the proper understanding of game mechanics and some insight into the game mode, winning at Pilot vs Pilot on Titanfall 2 can be pretty easy!
The big thing to keep in mind in this mode is that spawn zones are dynamic, and will respon to gameplay. The blue zone on your minimap is your team's spawn zone, and the red your enemy's. If you put pressure on their spawn zone, it will move, allowing you to force some strategy and create some choke points. That being said, be wary of the effect they can have on your spawn zone as well - keep it guarded!
The best thing you can do for your team is to be aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Ranged players will find their sighting somewhat restricted, so they might instead choose a support class like Grenadier. Assault classes typically thrive in this game mode, though they can be very quickly overwhelmed without heavy support backing them.
Most of all, keep moving! It will be hard to kill you if you're constantly moving, and it's this movement that will enhance your survivability in the long run.
