Titanfall Weapons, Attachments and Mods

In this guide, we will talk about the strengths, weaknesses and effectiveness of each weapon in the game. We will suggest under what circumstances, what type of primary weapon/sidearm combination you should be using and which attachments or mods you should go for.

Trick is to get out of your comfort zone and experiment with all the weapons available in the game. Following are the primary weapons available to you in Titanfall:

R-101C Carbine
The R-101C Carbine is an automatic weapon. It offers great accuracy at a very good range and deals a good amount of damage. It is extremely good for the starters as it will help you take down the AI enemies very quickly, making it easier for your earn XP and level up while learning how the game works.

Only weakness of the weapon is its ineffectiveness in the close range combat especially when you come across a player with a shotgun or a pistol.

  • Iron Sights
  • HCOG
  • Holosight
  • AOG

R-101C Carbine supports following mods:

EVA-8 Shotgun
EVA-8 Shotgun is a semi-automatic shotgun which deals a huge amount of damage at a close range. The biggest advantage of the weapon is its ability to kill off the opponents with just two shots at close range. The biggest disadvantage of the weapon is its ineffectiveness in long range.

Smart Pistol MK5
Smart Pistol MK5 made quite an impact in the beta of Titanfall. It is suitable for close range combats as it automatically locks on the opponents and once the target is locked, every shot fired will hit the target. It is very effective against the Pilots and the AI enemies.

You can use the iron sights for manual targeting. The weakness of the weapon is the waiting time that it takes to target the pilots and when used manually, it is almost useless.

Smart Pistol MK5 supports following Mods:

  • Supressor
  • Extended Magazine
  • Enhanced Targeting

R-97 Compact SMG
The R-98 is a great automatic weapon at a close range. It has a very high rate of fire with extremely low recoil. It doesn’t do a lot of damage with one shot but once you have a target in sight, there is nothing stopping you from taking it down.

Fast fire rate can really come in handy when you are in close range combat with someone who is using non-automatic weapon. R-97 Compact SMG is unlocked when you reach Level 6.

The downside of the weapon is its fire rate. It becomes a useless when you are in close combat or when Pilots are moving freely. If you are good with the Sniper Rifle, you can turn the match in your favor really fast. Longbow-DMR Sniper unlocks at Level-9.
