Titanfall is by far the hottest new first person shooter on the market right now. The game only resides on the X-Box One and the PC for now, but it will be coming out for the X-Box 360 relatively soon. The game has all gamers talking and critiquing the game and how it innovates on parkour and quick, rapid vertical movement. However, this isn’t a review; Rather, this is just a small guide for tips on how to level up quicker in Titanfall.
There are challenges in many games, and Titanfall is no different. Using the same weapon over and over again not only can make game play stale, but it hinders your ability to complete certain challenges. The same goes for using certain Titan weaponry, engaging in certain game modes, and so on.
There are tiers to the challenges, so while the first tier may net you 500 experience points, the fifth tier may net you 10,000 experience points! Add a few completed challenges together over the course of a handful of games and it’s a nice chunk of experience points added under your belt.
Kill the Computer
One aspect of Titanfall that makes it unique is the fact that there is enemy AI on the field (Grunts and Specters. These little guys play vital roles in the game, primarily in the game mode Attrition. I’ve had games where I’ve taken out 40+ and it has turned the tide of the game. Kill them to net extra experience points. One extremely easy way to take out multiple computer enemies is with well placed grenades.
Remember Prestiges from Call of Duty? Well, Regenerating is the same thing in Titanfall, except certain challenges have to be completed before you can Regenerate (They vary every Regeneration level). Every game you play after your first Regeneration, you get an experience points bonus.
Play The Objective
An objective mode, for example, is Hardpoint Domination. Go for the points and cap them off. You even get extra experience points for defending the point as well.
There are many other small ways to get extra experience points. For example, use Burn Cards, hack turrets, and get kills in certain ways (Example: “Titan Beatdown” [Meleeing an enemy Titan to death] gets you some extra points) are all small ways to help add to your experience points gain.
My philosophy when it comes to leveling up in any game is that every experience point helps. If I can get some experience points by hopping on a capture point, so be it. Close to completing a challenge? I complete it. Even small challenges that you don’t even mean to get, complete them if you’re close. Burn those burn cards, use different weapons, switch up your Titan setups, make the drop ship if you lose and so on.
Luckily, leveling up in this game isn’t extremely hard, especially in the earlier levels you pretty much fly with the challenges.
Last, but not least, also get practice. The better you play, the more experience points you get!
