In other areas of this forum a rather heated discussion has been brewing about whether or not Phase Shift is OP ** Please Use the Search feature to find the discussion** i have posted a link here https://forums.titanfall.com/en-us/discussion/11009/phase-shift-a-dimension-of-imbalance/p1
I have created this post to help those who are constantly being annoyed by those who are phase shifting . Here are a few tips I can offer being a phase main player that routinely get me killed.
1.) Move around
. If you shot at a pilot and they phased chances are pretty good they phased to get to cover, and know in a general direction where the shots came from. Moving around will allow you to keep the pilot guessing where you are. (Remember a Phase Shift means a pilot is running blind and can't see anything on the map)
Use this to your advantage.
2.) Use the phase time frame (3) seconds to your advantage as well
. Those 3 seconds are more how you use them than a Phase Shift Pilot is. Do the Following:
- Cook a Grenade
- Reload your gun
- move to cover
- follow the phase trail to guess where the pilot is
- be off the ground when the pilot returns, i rarely look up to find a pilot after returning (usally results in my enemy getting an easy kick to my face)
3.) Experienced Phase Shift users will deploy the phase before rounding a corner on some maps. My tip is listen
, the phase shift noise is very distinct and coupled with the vapor trail it isn't hard to hear and prepare with the list above.
I hope that other forum members can offer some other great tips to help our pilots in the community know that there are definitely ways to beat a phase shift. And with tips like these you should be winning the fight more frequently than before.
