10 essential tips for the multiplayer game of 2014

submit to reddit

After a weekend spent painting the landscape with blood, sweat and engine oil, Empire has emerged from the Titanfall beta test battered, bruised and longing for the full game's March 11 release. This latest, greatest contender for the online shooter throne is a bold new take on the genre and, as such, will catch new players unprepared. With the beta opening to the public today, we’ve assembled 10 essential tips to help you crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their teammates.

1. THE BOTS ARE THERE FOR A REASON

Titanfall

Titanfall matches are limited to six-on-six but thanks to a generous flow of AI cannon fodder conflicts are always bustling with bodies. League of Legends fans will know the drill well enough: grind the creeps and reap the rewards. Grunts are stupid, fragile and terrible shots – easy pickings for a pilot on the rampage. Their slaughter reduces the time to your next titanfall, unlocks challenges and in Attrition mode also contributes to your team score so minutes spent thinning their ranks is always time well spent. Spectres offer the added benefit of being hackable, switching sides after a well-placed data-knife to the head. Use this tactic to build up a cadre of metallic bodyguards to hide among – an even more effective tactic when using the Spectre Camo burn card.

1 RE: C'mon now...
L: whispo @ GrizBe, I guess you didn't read the article then? Titans are anything but useless. They are insanely helpfull, but they aren't overpowered. et... they can be taken out with 'anti-titan ordinance', a pilot running on his own, or a pilot simply prying open the canopy... That sounds pretty useless to me when a pilot on his own can simply crack open the hatch and beat the feck out of the other pilot rather then the titan having a proper system for getting rid of them. I mean.. deactivating and opening the hatch in the hope you can beat the other pilot? That sounds pretty pointless and more like pilots are OP'ed to me. More

Was just thinking the same thing. Empire is a MOVIE magazine... or at least I thought it was meant to be one. Seriously.. what the hell is happening with it lately? Also... Game that has Titans as its main selling point.. Article points out Titans are ultimately useless... ergo, whats the point of said game having Titans? More

I understand articles being written on cinematic games like Uncharted/Last of Us/GTA5, but a multiplayer shoot-em-up in a film magazine/website? You guys must have too much time on your hands when it comes to writing these internet features... More
