Titanfall Walkthrough

5. Gen 10 and generation requirements

Note: Any of these can be boosted online with only one other person if you pick an empty server to play on. Japan is a good one.

Requirements to Regen

Hit Level 50 and complete every challenge required for each generation.

Generation In-Game Tags:


There is an experience modifier you gain for each generation, making the leveling up process faster. This will help with getting your unlocks back faster and remedies some of the issue people have with Prestige and other mechanics. The modifier for each generation is:

Gen 2 = 110%
Gen 3 = 120%
Gen 4 = 130%
Gen 5 = 150%
Gen 6 = 180%
Gen 7 = 210%
Gen 8 = 250%
Gen 9 = 290%
Gen 10 = 350% (Not that this rank matters as you don't need to get level 50 in Gen 10)

Challenges Required

The challenges are the tough part. You need to do all of the following for each generation. Take note that not every challenge requires you to kill pilots.

You must do these challenges during each generation as challenges reset when you regen. You can't try to do all the challenges in gen 1 and then just level up. You'll need to earn the challenges while in the current generation.

To view current progress on the required challenges, open the challenges menu (available at level 4) and scroll down to the bottom where it says regen requirements. You need to max out all the challenges listed there.

When killing titans for challenges, dooming a titan is enough to receive credit in general. However, you don't actually get that credit until the titan is destroyed. If you doom the titan and then another player destroys it with his weapons while its critical, he'll get credit instead of you.

I'll note that Frontier Defense has quickly become a go-to for completing many challenges. Especially challenges that require you to kill Titans somehow. If you're struggling at all, I bet you can complete them in Frontier Defense easily.

In lieu of listing the challenge names for the weapons over and over, I'm just going to list how many kills you need to get.

Some of these may be inaccurate. The requirements may sometimes be lower, but the challenge is always correct and the number I provide will always be the most you could be required to get. A patch lowered the requirements for some of these.

Each generation will play out like this:

Generation 1 to 2

No challenges required for this gen. Reaching level 25 will unlock:

Halfway There in Titanfall
Reach level 25
  • Unlocked by 128,377 tracked gamers (68% - TA Ratio = 1.21) 188,846

Getting level 50 for the first time unlocks:

Maxed Out in Titanfall
Maxed Out78 (50)
Reach level 50
  • Unlocked by 78,466 tracked gamers (42% - TA Ratio = 1.55) 188,846

Remember, at this point you will have a choice. You can either work on All the Hardware (the achievement to unlock everything), or regen immediately and lose all your progress on it. If you plan on reaching Gen 10, it's best to regen immediately as you'll have more than enough time during Gen 8 to complete All the Hardware. Regenerating to Gen 2 unlocks:

My Generation in Titanfall
Became a second generation Pilot
  • Unlocked by 74,190 tracked gamers (39% - TA Ratio = 1.59) 188,846

Generation 2 to 3

EVA-8 Shotgun (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

40mm Cannon (Titan Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 50 Titans

Generation 3 to 4

R-97 Compact SMG (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

Plasma Railgun (Titan Weapon)
Kill 100 enemies
Kill 50 Titans
Strategy: Wait for a Titan to get extremely low, then hit them with a critical. This can be frustrating.

No Hitter (Challenge)
Kill 50 Pilots with Satchel Charge
Strategy: Battle for Demeter in the campaign. Put a satchel charge in the middle of B and wait for someone to run in, then blow it up. Put a new one and wait some more.
Dead Man's Trigger (Tier 2 Kit) is nice. Throw a satchel at an enemy before you die and it almost always kills them.
CTF defending the flag also works, and will give you a good amount of XP as well if you let the enemy grab the flag before you blow it up (you get lots of bonuses for killing the flag carrier and returning the flag).

Generation 4 to 5

Longbow-DMR Sniper (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 150 enemies
Kill 50 Pilots
Strategy: If, like me (Snowed), you are terrible with snipers this can be a bit of a problem. I had the greatest success running around with an ACOG scope and a suppressor. It's a slow grind and you'll lose most of your games if you aren't any good with it (I won 10 out of 58 games this Gen - previously I had a 78% win ratio), but you'll eventually get all the kills you need.

Quad Rocket (Titan Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 50 Titans

RE-45 Auto Pistol (Pilot Sidearm)
Kill 50 Pilots

Charge Rifle (Pilot Anti-Titan Weapon)
Get 30 critical hits
Strategy: See Youtube video below.

Generation 5 to 6

R-101C Carbine (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

Arc Cannon (Titan Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 50 Titans

Sidewinder (Pilot Anti-Titan Weapon)
Kill 10 Titans

Gooser (Challenge)
Kill a Pilot who is ejecting 5 time(s)
Strategy: Last Titan Standing. Chaingun with extended mag in your Titan. Try to keep a distance so you can clearly make out the enemy. Reload often, but not to often. I had issues at first reloading quickly until I realized I had only used 1/3 of the mag when I thought I was almost done. You'll want 30-40 bullets to kill a pilot in the air.
When fighting, don't attack after the Titan goes critical. Some players are a bit slow in ejecting. On the flip side, make sure you don't use auto-eject and do use survivor. I got at least 5 of my 50 kills while doomed.
If they cloak when they eject, keep an eye out for their boost pack. You can see it on some maps (depends on the sky color). It's always worth it to spray and pray anyway - got a few kills doing that.
Most importantly, BE AGGRESSIVE. I can't stress how important this is. I see Gen 5 people all the time just sitting in the back hoping someone ejects. These people are stuck at level 50 for ages. You get far more ejections if you're not making it essentially a 5v6 every round and losing the game for your team. I was top scorer in over half my games (pretty easy when everyone else runs around with garbage weapons trying to get regen requirements done).

Generation 6 to 7

Spitfire LMG (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

Triple Threat (Titan Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 50 Titans
Strategy: Use the Stryder and be suicidal in LTS. At close range this weapon can cause a metric ton of damage. Holding L will allow you to shoot the grenades in a vertical line allowing more distance at the cost of reducing the spread of grenades.

Mag Launcher (Pilot Anti-Titan Weapon)
Kill 10 Titans

Brain Surgeon (Challenge)
Kill 50 Titans by rodeo
Strategy: You can use the Spitfire LMG with the Slammer add-on to kill fast. The ONLY sure way to get a Rodeo kill is to doom the Titan with your weapon and then have the pilot eject.
Supposedly, you can do this on Auto-Titans but you must make sure you get the kill. To ensure this, stay on the Titan even after you doom it and shoot it until you see you get credit for the kill on the right side of the screen. You can also jump on already doomed auto-titans and get credit. However, I tried MANY times and could never get this to work so I cannot confirm it. Multiple people in the comments have said it does, in fact, work.
It usually will not count if you see on the side of the screen you killed the Titan with a weapon (it must say "Player [Rodeo] X's Auto Titan" instead of [Spitfire LMG]).

Generation 7 to 8

G2A4 Rifle (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

XO-16 Chaingun (Titan Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 50 Titans

Charge Rifle (Pilot Anti-Titan Weapon)
Kill 10 Titans
Strategy: The Charge Rifle burn card is borderline overpowered. You'll get a few on your way up. Otherwise, the only tip I can really give is to learn to feather your trigger to keep it near a full charge, so you only need to pop out for a split second to shoot the enemy. Cloaking while charging will emit a bright orange light, so don't count on that.

Fresh Squeezed (Challenge)
Get 25 execution kill(s) as a Stryder Titan
Strategy: You can execute by melee'ing when a Titan has gone critical.

Generation 8 to 9

This generation is the opportune time to unlock All the Hardware. You will have to play at least 100 rounds (probably closer to 200) and you'll have more than enough time to unlock every modification. Flip over to the All the Hardware section of the walkthrough for specific details on what you need to do for that achievement.

All The Hardware in Titanfall
Unlock everything
  • Unlocked by 15,816 tracked gamers (8% - TA Ratio = 3.45) 188,846

C.A.R. SMG (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 200 enemies
Kill 75 Pilots

Archer Heavy Rocket (Pilot Anti-Titan Weapon)
Kill 10 Titans

40mm Cannon (Titan Weapon)
Get 75 critical hits
Strategy: See the Youtube video below. Use burst fire to get off more shots at once.

Executioner (Challenge)
Get 25 execution kill(s) as an Atlas Titan
Strategy: You can execute by melee'ing when a Titan has gone critical.

All I Do Is Win (Challenge)
Win 100 rounds

Look Out Below! (Challenge)
Get 50 kill(s) by dropping your Titan on the enemy
Strategy: Works against grunts and spectres. This is your best bet.

Generation 9 to 10

Smart Pistol Mk5 (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 75 Pilots

Hemlock BF-R (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 75 Pilots

Kraber-AP Sniper (Pilot Weapon)
Kill 25 Pilots

Plasma Railgun (Titan Weapon)
Get 50 Critical Hits
Strategy: See Youtube video below.

XO-16 Chaingun (Titan Weapon)
Get 400 Critical Hits
Strategy: See Youtube below.

Disarmed (Challenge)
Get 25 execution kill(s) as an Ogre Titan
Strategy: You can execute by melee'ing when a Titan has gone critical.

MVP (Challenge)
Be the player with the highest score on your team 50 time(s)
Strategy: Play CTF and try to capture the flags. If you learn some good flag paths, it's fairly easy. The person with the most flag caps on the team is always first. In the event of a tie, flag returns are the tie-breaker. You don't need to actually win to get MVP - just first on your team. If you aren't good at CTF, try constantly attacking at Hardpoint - playing defense was patched to be extremely ineffective for purposes of points.
You also might have some success playing campaign, where the players are generally a bit worse.

Deadly Apparition (Challenge)
Get 200 kill(s) whilst being cloaked
Strategy: You can get these on minions. Using ordnance (satchel charges and arc grenades are both especially good) and jump kicking minions will net you lots of kills as they don't break the cloak. Ghost Squad or any infinite ordnance burn card are all excellent as well. With a burn card, you can easily get close to 50 kills in a game.

Death Reincarnate (Challenge)
Get a kill while ejecting 75 times
Strategy: Use Nuclear Explosion. It does work against minions.

Critical hits tutorial:

Upon completing all of this, you will unlock what will probably be your final achievement:

Gen 10 in Titanfall
Reach the highest Pilot generation
  • Unlocked by 9,056 tracked gamers (5% - TA Ratio = 4.56) 188,846
