Titans Titan Customization

The first Custom Titan slot is unlocked at level 10, giving you the chance to build your very own Titan—start by selecting a chassis.

Customization doesn’t end with outfitting your Pilot. Titans can also be customized to a Pilot’s specifications, allowing for greater versatility or specialization. Once the Custom Titan options are unlocked, you can begin creating your own Titan loadouts. There are six options to choose from, allowing you to tailor your Titan’s chassis, weapons, ability, and kits. Here’s a breakdown of the different options available.

  • Chassis: Start by choosing from the Atlas, Ogre, or Stryder Titans. These three chassis options are the platforms on which your Titan is built.
  • Primary Weapon: This is your Titan’s weapon when deploying. There are six to choose from, each with unique characteristics and functionality. Primary weapons can be equipped with optional mods, altering their performance.
  • Tactical Ability: There are three active abilities giving Titans the ability to block/redirect incoming projectiles, emit electrically charged smoke, or deploy a defensive energy barrier.
  • Ordnance: These shoulder-mounted missile and rocket launchers give Titans more offensive capability.
  • Kits: As with Pilots, there are two kits slots, Tier 1 and Tier 2, each with five options. These passive kits enhance Titans in various ways. Select kits that complement your other loadout selections.

Preset Titan Loadouts

Until you reach level 10, you’ll have to go into battle with one of the three preset Titan loadouts.

Titan customization isn’t readily available to rookie Pilots. Instead, new Pilots must choose from three preset Titan loadouts: Assault, Tank, and Artillery. Each of these loadouts is built around a different chassis, allowing new Pilots to try out the Atlas, Ogre, and Stryder Titans. As indicated by their names, each preset Titan loadout is built to fulfill a special role on the battlefield. Experiment with these loadouts to help find the right mix of weapons, abilities, and kits. You may find some loadouts work better than others depending on your style of play and the current game mode.

Tier 2 Kit

Auto-Eject

YOU EJECT AND CLOAK AUTOMATICALLY WHEN DOOMED

Of the three preset Titan loadouts, this Atlas configuration is the best choice for new Pilots, offering a fine balance of durability, mobility, and firepower. The XO-16 Chaingun is very easy to use, operating like a standard machine gun—albeit much larger. Use this primary weapon to chip away at the bodyshields and armor of enemy Titans—target those red spots to score critical hits. Once the Titan’s Damage Core ability is active, the XO-16 Chaingun and Rocket Salvo can dish out some extreme damage. But don’t stand still and take hit after hit during Titan battles. Use the Vortex Shield to catch and redirect incoming projectiles at your enemies. When necessary, retreat behind cover and let your bodyshield recharge—the Regen Booster Kit helps reduce the recharge time. If your Titan sustains heavy damage and enters its doomed state, the Auto-Eject Kit ensures you’ll escape without a scratch, temporarily cloaking your airborne Pilot in the process.

Tank

Chassis: Ogre
  • Loadout Unlock: Level 1

Primary Weapon

40mm Cannon

SEMI-AUTO 40MM HE ROUNDS

Mod:Factory Issue

Tactical Ability

Vortex Shield

ABSORBS AND RETURNS INCOMING FIRE

Ordnance

Rocket Salvo

LAUNCHES AN UNGUIDED ROCKET SWARM

Tier 1 Kit

Nuclear Ejection

YOUR TITAN GOES NUCLEAR WHEN YOU EJECT

Tier 2 Kit

Survivor

YOUR TITAN DEGRADES SLOWER WHEN DOOMED

Armed with the powerful 40mm Cannon, this Tank loadout for the Ogre is all about dishing out heavy damage, best suited for engaging enemy Titans. The 40mm Cannon is effective at both intermediate and close range, so don’t worry about rushing in to point-blank range. Instead, keep your distance and pound away at your opponents while blocking and redirecting incoming fire with the Vortex Shield. Once active, the Shield Core ability can help absorb some of those incoming projectiles too. This particular loadout excels in desperate close-quarter duels thanks to its Survivor Tier 2 Kit—this allows the Titan to survive longer in its doomed state, giving you more time to fight before ejecting. But before you eject, make sure you’re as close as possible to enemy units—the Nuclear Ejection Tier 1 Kit emits a massive blast, capable of wiping out Pilots, minions, and even damaged Titans in wide radius.

Artillery

Chassis: Stryder
  • Loadout Unlock: Level 3

Primary Weapon

Quad Rocket

FIRES 4 ROCKETS PER VOLLEY

Mod:Factory Issue

Tactical Ability

Vortex Shield

ABSORBS AND RETURNS INCOMING FIRE

Ordnance

Rocket Salvo

LAUNCHES AN UNGUIDED ROCKET SWARM

Tier 1 Kit

Regen Booster

YOUR TITAN’S BODYSHIELD REGENERATES FASTER

Tier 2 Kit

Survivor

YOUR TITAN DEGRADES SLOWER WHEN DOOMED

If you prefer fast hit-and-run tactics, this is the loadout for you. This Stryder loadout is most effective when attacking at close range. The Quad Rocket primary weapon is capable of inflicting heavy damage, but its limited range and magazine capacity can leave the Titan vulnerable in some situations. So use the Stryder’s dashes and Dash Core to close the distance, attack with the Quad Rocket and Rocket Salvo, and then retreat before your target can retaliate. The Regen Booster Tier 1 Kit comes in handy for quickly recharging the Titan’s bodyshield, but you need to find cover first. But unlike the Ogre, don’t try any last-minute heroics in the Stryder—it doesn’t have the armor to last long. While the Survivor Tier 2 Kit buys you more time during the doomed state, use that time to eject and scurry to safety.
