12 Tips To Help You Master Titanfall 2's Multiplayer

Titanfall 2 is out today. It's pretty great! Alongside having a fantastic campaign, the robust multiplayer mode that was essentially the entire original game has returned, along with some adjustments and additions. I've been chewing through the multiplayer over the past few days, stomping and being stomped myself, and have returned from the front lines with a few tips to help you carve out a path to victory.

Experiment With Both Pilot Loadouts and Titan PerksYou can have up to 10 custom pilot loadouts in Titanfall 2. You get 6 for free and have to buy the rest with currency earned through matches. With pilots, your best bet is to have a loadout for every occasion. Want to go stealthy sometime? Have a loadout equipped with the cloak ability and a weapon of your choosing (shotgun or sniper work pretty well depending on your play style). Also have a class with an assault weapon and frag grenades. And another with an explosive weapon as your pilot's primary. During matches you can switch between loadouts in order to change things up, so take advantage of that if your current loadout isn't working.

South Park's Developers Share Their Favorite Superhero Comics And Movies

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a mash-up of the South Park TV show and modern super heroes. A few days ago, we highlighted the team's favorite episodes of the show. Today, we're sharing their favorite super hero stuff.

Nicholas Bonardi – lead audio designer“I have some embarrassing super hero soundtracks I like. I really, really, really like the soundtracks for the old Christopher Reeves Supermans. That was my favorite super hero movie growing up. Definitely like Batman Returns, the early Batmans, too. They are super Danny Elfmanned out, and you can only Elfman so hard, is what we’ve discovered.”

Scott Crisostomo – manager, game design“Older Uncanny X-Men? I used to collect those. I have a lot of them. And for newer stuff, it would probably be the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.”

Nintendo dominates blogs this week thanks to the announcement of the Switch, but there's plenty of gaming blog goodness for everyone. Read away!

Community Blogs For October 20 – October 26:

My Thoughts on the NX For StarterPack, appearance is a huge part of what he likes in a console, and the Switch just does not have the looks. He also does not like the name, and is afraid it may be flimsy. Considering Nintendo made the original Gameboy Advance strong enough to run over in a small car or flush in a toilet, it's probably safe to say that this console will be sturdy. Plus, it will have all of the Nintendo exclusives. But we won't know how good it is until we have it in front of us.

Titanfall 2 is out tomorrow. Fellow editor Suriel Vazquez and I decided to show off an entire level from early on in the game that offers a pretty comprehensive look at the sort of gameplay you'll find throughout the rest of the campaign. There's a lot of Pilot combat as well as Titan-riding and even a boss battle at the end, with relatively few spoilers.

So suit up and click below to watch us play through "Blood and Rust" below:
