There are 47 achievements with a total of 1200 points.
Titanfall is a unique multiplayer-only shooter. It combines sci-fi military action with mechs, parkour, ziplines, and all sorts of fast-paced mayhem. Contrary to popular belief, there is a sort of campaign/story in the game, though it is not really a "single-player" experience in the traditional sense. Think of Halo 4's Spartan Ops mode, but with a full human team to fight against on top of the AI. Very similar to a normal MP match, just with story elements woven in. Outside of that, there are five different MP modes.
Not all of the achievements will unlock the second you perform the required action. If you think you've done something to earn an achievement, wait until after the match and see if it unlocks then.
Step 1: Campaign
When you first start the campaign, you will play through one side completely, then switch and do each of the nine chapters again from the other side. Keep track of which chapters you win, as the game does not do this for you. This will knock out 18/50 required matches. You also need to win each chapter, which likely will not have happened your first time around, so work on getting the rest of your wins. If you've done that and still need credit towards the required 50, just play any random chapters to finish it up.
Step 2: Classic
Now you will want to work toward the 50 wins in each of the game's five competitive modes: Capture the Flag, Attrition, Hardpoint, Last Titan Standing, Pilot Hunter. While working on these achievements, stick with one weapon until you have unlocked all of its challenges for "I Like a Challenge," before moving to other weapons to unlock their attachments for "All the Hardware." Once you have unlocked everything, you can Regenerate without fear of having to redo a bunch of unlocks.
If you want all the achievements (and not just the max 1000G) you'll need to Regenerate nine times to reach Rank 10 for a zero Gamerscore achievement. This will greatly increase the time you spend with the game, so if you only care about the actual Gamerscore, you only need to Regenerate once.
The easiest way currently to boost achievements is to get 12 players together in two parties of 6. Switch to an obscure server (Japan, for instance) and have each party leader search for a game at the same time. You should be paired together and will stay together for as long as it takes to get everyone their needed achievements.
When private matches are added, assuming you can unlock achievements in them, that will be a much more reliable option.
Step 3: Mop Up
At this point, you'll likely have earned the majority of the miscellaneous achievements after playing 250 MP matches. Anything you're missing, refer to those achievements for the best situations to unlock them and try your best. Good luck and have fun!
Since the game does not keep track of campaign wins for the "Elite Pilot" achievements, or the maps you've played in each mode for the "I've Seen It All" achievement, I threw together a quick Excel file to track them manually. Click the links below to download them in your preferred format.
(XBA would like to thank The Pants Party for this roadmap)
|Completed the IMC campaign||(4)|
See "Militia Elite Pilot" for more info.
|Completed the Militia campaign||(2)|
See "Militia Elite Pilot" for more info.
|IMC Elite Pilot||25|
|Won every Campaign level as an IMC pilot||(1)|
See "Militia Elite Pilot" for more info.
|Militia Elite Pilot||25|
|Won every Campaign level as a Militia pilot||(7)|
The IMC and Militia campaigns consist of nine chapters (aka matches) and you will need to win each of them for the "Elite Pilot" achievements, while simply finishing them will unlock "Pilot" achievements. The chapters are below, and the game types you play in each are also listed. The campaign is basically regular MP matches with some story and cutscenes woven in.
After completing both sides of the campaign, you will be able to choose a specific chapter to play. The side you get will be random, and it is rare to get Militia for some reason. Just quit and search again if you don't get the side you need.
|Death From Above||25|
|Killed 5 enemies by dropping a titan on them||(3)|
See "Titanfall" for more info on earning a Titan. Once you have a Titan ready, you'll drop it by pressing Down on the D-Pad. It isn't easy to target Pilot or enemy Titans with this, but it can also be done on AI which mostly stand around for slaughter. The achievement is cumulative, so you can kill one enemy each with five different Titanfalls to unlock the achievement.
|Created a custom pilot loadout||(2)|
Custom Pilot Loadouts are unlocked at Pilot Level 5. In between matches you will have the option to edit any of your loadouts, including custom ones. Simply change at least one option and save the loadout to unlock the achievement.
|Customize Your Ride||15|
|Created a custom titan loadout|
Custom Titan Loadouts are unlocked at Pilot Level 10. In between matches you will have the option to edit any of your loadouts, including custom ones. Simply change at least one option and save the loadout to unlock the achievement.
|Reached level 25||(1)|
See "Maxed Out" for more info.
|Reached level 50||(1)|
Level 50 requires 900,000 XP. The leveling in Titanfall is relatively fast compared to most shooters, and experience can be earned in every game mode including Campaign. Completing challenges will offer bonus experience (10,000 for a Tier V challenge), so if you've maxed out a gun, it will be beneficial to switch to a new one and work on new challenges. This will also help toward "All the Hardware."
|Won 50 Capture The Flag matches||(2)|
Capture the Flag in Titanfall uses "classic" rules in that your flag has to be at its base to score. There are two rounds in each match which will each end once a team has scored three times, or time runs out. You will switch sides after the first round.
|I Wore 'Em Down||25|
|Won 50 Attrition matches||(3)|
Attrition is basically Team Deathmatch, but with the added caveat that AI and Titan kills will contribute to your team's score. The first team to score 300 points wins. An AI kill is worth 1 point, Pilots are 4, and Titans are 5. Killing tons of AI can effectively win the match, so don't ignore them!
|Won 50 Pilot Hunter matches|
Pilot Hunter is another version of Team Deathmatch, except this one is more "pure" as only Pilot kills will increase your team's score. Each Pilot kill is worth one point. The first team to 50 points wins.
|Won 50 Hardpoint matches||(1)|
Hardpoint is basically Territories. As you control a point, it will begin to add points to your team's score. A good way to defend a point is with a Titan in auto-mode on one end of it, and yourself on foot on the other end. The first team to reach 400 points wins the match.
|I Stand Alone||25|
|Won 50 Last Titan Standing matches|
Last Titan Standing mode spawns everyone inside a Titan right away. You can use the Titan to fight, leave it towards your spawn, or set it to follow you and fight on the ground near it. The team that is able to blow up all the enemy Titans with at least one Titan left functioning on your team wins the round. The first team to win 4 rounds wins the match.
|I've Seen It All||25|
|Played every gameplay mode on every map||(6)|
For this achievement, it will be best to focus on one mode at a time. Select a mode and play through the map rotation until you've seen all 15 maps and it starts to repeat. Then switch modes until you've done all 5 modes on all 15 maps. The maps are on a standing rotation, so if you can play a full 15 matches in one sitting for each game mode that will be the easiest way to know you've hit them all. Just be warned that if the other team quits, it will find a new match, and could possibly return you to the map you started your rotation on. Matches will count if you join halfway through, but not if you drop halfway through. You simply need to finish.
|Ride 'Em Cowboy||25|
|Rodeo-killed a Titan||(2)|
To "Rodeo" an enemy titan, you simply need to jump at it. If you are close enough, you will automatically climb onto its back and open a hatch to reveal its weak spot. Using your primary weapon, fire repeatedly until the titan goes into its "doomed" state at which point you can jump off and wait for it to explode. Don't use an anti-Titan weapon while mounted, you'll die! The Charge Rifle is the exception to that rule.
|Best in Class||25|
|Finished as the top player on your team once|
The best way I've found to rack up points (over strictly getting kills) is during a Hardpoint match. Go from point to point capturing bases to get assault points. You can also play Last Titan Standing as this is ranked strictly by Titan kills, or Capture the Flag which is ranked strictly by flag captures.
|All Charged Up||25|
|Killed 5 enemies with one Arc Cannon shot||(5)|
"The Arc Cannon is an immensely powerful gun, firing a lightning bolt at a low rate of fire. It can be fired quickly and semiautomatically, or charged up for high power. When firing the arc cannon at a cluster of enemies, plasma arcs will erupt from the main point of contact, connecting enemies with the target, and electrocuting the group."
|Like A Vacation||25|
Before competing in any actual multiplayer matches, you should be forced to enter a training mode to orient you with the controls of Titanfall. It only takes about ten minutes to run though. If you choose to skip it or it does not load for some reason, you can find it at any time from the main menu under "Training."
|Snapped the necks of 10 Pilots||(3)|
To snap an enemy pilot's neck, you will need to sneak up behind them and click in the right thumbstick for a quick execution move while the prompt is active on-screen. If you click it too early, you will only perform a kick which will still kill the enemy, but is not what you want for this achievement.
|Killed 10 ejecting Pilots||(16)|
When an enemy titan goes into its "doomed" state, the Pilot can manually, or with a certain loadout automatically eject from the cockpit and fly into the air. When you see this happen, look up and take careful aim to try and kill the Pilot before he lands. The Chaingun and Arc Cannon on the Titan or Carbine with a Pilot will be your best bet for this achievement as the other weapons are much slower to fire.
|Killed an ejecting Pilot with the Plasma Railgun||(11)|
Similar to "Pull!" but for this achievement you need to kill the Pilot with the Titan Plasma Railgun weapon specifically. The Plasma Railgun is unlocked at Pilot Level 13. Play Last Titan Standing for more chances to pull this off, and try to be somewhat close to the Titan so you can shoot up and into the Pilot rather than trying to lead a shot underneath so it hits as he falls.
|All The Cards||25|
|Earned 500 burn cards||(3)|
Burn cards are earned after matches and for completing various challenges in the game. As you work toward all the other achievements, this will likely come naturally. You can earn up to three cards per match without any challenge bonuses, so you'll get it while working toward your 50 wins in each type. You can only hold 30 cards at a time, so make sure you are using them or discarding them (LT+RT) as they become available to make room for the next unlocks.
|All The Hardware||50|
To unlock everything in Titanfall, first you want to complete both sides of the campaign. Doing so will unlock the Ogre and Stryder Titans. The game does not seem to recognize they were unlocked until you actually equip them to a Loadout and drop them in a match.
R-97 Compact SMG
Smart Pistol Mk5
Titan 40MM Cannon
Titan XO-16 Chaingun
Titan Quad Rocket
Titan Arc Cannon
Titan Plasma Railgun
Titan Triple Threat
|My Robot Army||20|
|Hacked 20 Spectres using the Data Knife||(1)|
The data knife is always equipped on a Pilot; you do not need to actually switch to it to use it. When near an enemy Spectre, a prompt will come on screen "Hold X to Hack" and upon doing so, the Spectre and its squad will become your allies. The "Icepick" Tier 2 Pilot Kit unlocked at Pilot Level 43 will speed up the rate at which you hack a Spectre. There are a ridiculous amount of these in the final campaign mission, Chapter 9: Made Men.
|Survived an evacuation||(7)|
At the end of some matches in Titanfall, the losing team will be tasked with trying to evacuate from the map via a dropship that will appear, while the winning team tries to hunt them down and prevent them from doing so. If you are on the losing side, successfully reach the drop ship, and it does not get blown up by the winning team before the countdown ends, you will unlock this achievement. Once you make it to the dropship area, hide in a bulding or some bushes nearby until just before it will take off, then activate your cloak and jump inside.
|I Like A Challenge||50|
|Completed all challenges for a single weapon||(1)|
For this achievement, you will need to complete every challenge set for at least one weapon. Since I'd suggest unlocking all attachments for the guns during your first Generation, you'll likely be close to this for a few guns by the time you unlock that achievement. Plus, the Generations after the first require gun-specific challenges to be completed before Regenerating and have accelerated leveling, so you may not have the luxury of sticking with one gun long enough in any of them.
The R-101C Carbine is probably the most user-friendly primary gun in the game, and the challenges are fairly simple as well. This would be the next easiest gun, though it will take much longer than the Archer or Mag:
|Caught a projectile shot from a vortex with your own vortex||(1)|
To employ your Vortex Shield, hold down the Left Bumper (assuming it is your equipped power). To earn this achievement, keep your distance while fighting an enemy Titan and wait until you see an them use their shield as you shoot them. Watch closely to their shield and as soon as it drops, employ yours to catch the bullets/rocket that they've flung back at you.
|Played 50 Campaign matches||(3)|
The campaign matchmaking begins by forcing you to play each chapter consecutively. Since you can't simply replay a chapter until you win, make sure you keep track of which chapters you win for the "Elite Pilot" achievements. Once you've played through each side once, you can then choose any chapter you want to redo until you've played 50. Each chapter counts as one match, and they all last about 15 minutes each with cutscenes and load times.
|I Killed Them All||25|
|Killed all pilots during the evacuation single-handedly||(72)|
This one will take some luck and/or skill. During the evacuation at the end of a match, you would need to kill every Pilot left on the other team. Presumably this would be six enemies, but if a number of people dropped during the match it will still unlock. Your best bet would likely be getting the kill shot on the losing team's ship with a full crew, or after having killed a few on the ground. When the match ends, hopefully you have a Titan and can rush to where the ship will appear. As the other team rushes to escape, pick them off as you see them and then work on blowing up the ship. Save your Titan ordanance for just before it dies so you can take the last chunk of its health.
|Became a second generation Pilot||(1)|
To perform your first Regeneration, you simply need to reach Level 50 and choose the option to Regenerate (this Generation has no challenges tied to it). Make sure you earn "All the Hardware" before regenerating, as doing so will reset all of your unlocks and give you more work down the line. You earn experience and credit toward challenges in every game mode, including Campaign. I personally get the most points in Hardpoint matches, picking a spot and defending/retaking it the entire match.
|Wallran for 5 kilometers||(1)|
To wallrun, you simply need to jump at any wall at an angle. You will then begin to run along the wall, though you will start to drop after a short distance. You will use this skill often to traverse the maps (or you should, anyway) so running a 5k will only be a matter of time as you work toward the 250 MP matches. You can use the Enhanced Parkour Tier 1 Kit to increase the time you will wallrun, and you can find a corner of the map and just run for entire matches if you want to grind this quickly (see video below).
|Reached the highest Pilot generation||(10)|
Every time you reach Level 50 and complete the accompanying challenges for the Generation you are on, you are given the option to Regenerate, which will reset your player level, all challenges, and any unlocks. You do get to keep your Burn Cards though.
Because the various Generations have specific challenges tied to them (except Gen1), be aware of which challenges you should be working on as you level up inside a Generation. You don't want to reach Level 50 and then realize you have hours of work left before you can Regenerate because you hadn't used that weapon/Titan/tactic before. Every time you Regenerate, you earn experience faster, making the next set of levels go by more quickly, as seen below.
|Superior In Every Way||25|
|Killed 1000 AI soldiers|
AI soldiers can be found littering the maps during every match. They will respawn via drop pods a short time after they are killed, so there are dozens available to kill during every match. Throw a rocket volley at them while in a Titan to quickly take out a few at once. If you do this every time you're in a Titan, you'll earn this on your way to your 50 wins in every mode.
|Called in your Titan 25 times||(2)|
Every three minutes during a match you will have the option to call in a titan. Simply press Down on the D-paid to do so. Your "build time" for a titan will decrease as you kill enemies or do other actions to help your team win (such as point captures in Hardpoint Domination). There are also Burn Cards available that will lower build times.
