I hope the greatest gun ever created in a video game, the Smart Pistol, makes a comeback



I overheard one of the devs say that the smart pistol is coming back but with tweaks, thats all he could say about it.

Titanfall 1 was legit, a great game to just hop in and play a few rounds whenever. I just hope that this time around they'll get a bit more creative with the pilot weapons. It was a bit of a waste of the sci-fi setting to still just have everyone running around with the same old staple FPS guns. It's the future, where are my lasers?

Any word on what game engine it's running? Are they still using Source or did they switch over to a in-house engine like Frostbite?

Not only is there a titan based laser for ya, but there was also a pilot based laser type LMG called the LSTAR.

Why? If you read the old titan fall 1 thread back in the day you'd know the smart pistol was actually quite terrible, furthermore-

No sword Titan available to play unfortunately, but like Wazzit said the video they were playing while waiting in line showed Titan customization.

Are Titans locked into their weapons and secondaries, or can you mix and match like in Titanfall 1? From what I've read it seems like they're trying to give the Titans more distinctive personalities, but I hope that's not at the expense of customization.

I'm a big fan of the Oscar Pistorius feet too. Tangentially related: I hope playing as a Spectre is a permanent perk this time around rather than a burn card.

They said that weapons and abilities would be tied to the chassis now so you can easily identify the kind of threat a particular titan poses.

The website mentions your appearance depending on your ability and shows a spectre for the grapple. The trailer shows a woman using grapple, so maybe it's a free choice this time?

Hah no worries, more info is alway good! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who found rodeoing weird. Maybe they changed the mechanics of it?

What I've heard is that now when you rodeo an enemy Titan you automatically rip out a battery or something, toss a grenade in, and hop off. No more hatch-popping. The "battery" can then be given to a friendly Titan to restore health and maybe some core charge. Which is especially useful since Titans don't have a recharging shield anymore.

Huh, so that's what that loading screen tip I saw was about. Interesting change, wonder how you're supposed to give the battery to a friendly titan since when I did it I didn't notice any prompts pop up or anything. I didn't have much of a chance to look closely though.

That explains A LOT, it felt like my titan was a little more squishy than the previous game. Interesting. That also explains what I was supposed to do with the shield core, sometimes I would die and it would give me a message saying I dropped a shield core or something but I never knew what to do with it.

I wonder if it will do it automatically if you jump on a friendly titan if you had the shield battery with you.

Robot will never be forgotten, all those memories of the halcyon days, the naps you two took in the rays of dying sun, how you climbed robot arm covered in circuitry and featherlike solar panels, the way robot barked orders at you after you threw exploding barrels in its mouth.

I'm hoping for more weapons. I get that they want every weapon to fill a specific niche and avoid the Call of Duty "Here are ten different but essentially identical assault rifles" but I dunno, I kinda like using the playstyle I'm best at, while still having something else to look at filling up the bottom-right corner of the screen for a while.
