Networks

titanfall 2 networks

Networks are social groups, like guilds or clans, that you can join. If you are in a Network, you can quickly join others games in your same Network.

There is also a Happy Hour where you can earn more Merits for your faction during that time. More on that later. The Happy Hour time will be different depending on your Network.

Pilot Customization

There is a lot you can customize on your Pilot. Some things require you to reach a certain level, while others require you to spend Credits, the in-game currency.

You can also spend Credits on certain items instead of reaching the required level.

  • Tactical - These are active abilities that have a cooldown time before you can use it again.
  • Ordinance - Grenade abilities.
  • Camo - Color of your pilot's camo.
  • Gender - Do I need to tell you?
  • Primary Weapon - Includes mods, scopes, attachments, and color.
  • Secondary Weapon - Either a pistol or anti-Titan weapon with the same customization as above.
  • Kits - Passive abilities that help in combat.
  • Execution - The type of execution you can do when you sneak up behind Pilots.

Titan Customization

Customization for Titans works the same way as pilots, but there is less to change.

  • Titan Kit - Passive ability to help when you are in the Titan.
  • Named Kit - This is a kit with the name of your Titan, Ronin for example.
    • It gives a passive ability unique to that Titan.
  • Titanfall Kit - Passive ability that affects how your Titan is called in.
  • Camo and Art - You can change the color of your Titan, their main weapon, and the art on their front.

Each titan has a main weapon, 3 abilities and a core ability.

  • Core abilities are charged up as you fight in your Titan. When they are fully charged, they are usable for a short time, then must be charged again.

Boosts

These are big boosts for your pilot that have a variety of choices. 

For example, one is Amped Weapons, which increases the damage of your primary and secondary weapons. This is an activated skill you get when you fill your bar up enough while playing as a Pilot.

Factions

Factions are NPC groups you can join.

  • You can level them up by completing Merits.
  • These are challenges you complete while in a match.

Leveling up factions will callsign rewards. You can switch factions as you level and unlock more.

Callsign

This is your player banner and path that is displayed in multiplayer games.

The banner is the background picture and the patch is the emblem you can display on the banner.

That's all for my guide on the multiplayer in Titanfall 2. Let me know if you have any questions!
