Reaching Level 50 will allow your pilots to "regenerate"-- which is essentially the Titanfall version of 'Prestiging' in Call of Duty. Regenerating resets all your challenges and unlocks, and revert you to level 1. In return, you will gain experience at a faster rate during the next generation and display a special chip next to your gamertag. You will also keep all Burn Cards and unlocked Titans. Reaching the following Generation Levels will earn you the corresponding experience boosts:
One way to take down a Titan is to jump right onto it, pull off the panel to expose the inner circuitry, and keep shooting the weak spot until the Titan goes down. The risk of this method is that you expose yourself to the enemy team (whether they are on the ground, on roofs, or also in Titans). If the player is inside their Titan, they can also jump out and attempt to engage you, which is one of the most effective ways for them to counter. If you’re in a team, another way is to find a good vantage point and together use your rocket launchers, being careful to keep moving and take cover.
Spectres are bots that can be hacked by approaching them and pressing X (E on PC). Once hacked, they will essentially become an ally and fight for you until you die, giving you an additional boost in firepower.
There are currently three types of Titans that each offer their own strengths and weaknesses:
Ogre Class Sacrifices speed and mobility for the heaviest armor of all the Titans, making it the best option for those who play defensively in battles. Although it can take plenty of hits, it only has one dash and so your best bet for taking out enemies is to stay in short range.
Atlas Class The most balanced Titan featuring decent armor and speed, meaning that a good player can be effective against any other Titan class. The Atlas holds a max of 2 dash units and has a finishing move that involves punching through the enemies armor, grabbing the pilot, and tossing them away.
Stryder Class Opposite of the Ogre class, the Stryder Class boasts not only the best speed and agility but also three dashes. Since it has the worst armor of the three and thus you want to avoid direct confrontation, the best strategy is to secure rapid deployment objectives while weaving between buildings to avoid damage. The Stryder's finishing move involves punching through the enemies armor, taking hold of the pilot, and squashing them to death.
