If you've played this game long enough, you'd know that the enemy AI can be pretty damn brutal to the point where they can have 1000 more power than you, and there's no way you'd be able to fight them head-on, and this is especially tough when you are solo. So, hopefully, there are times where you can play with your friends.


In any case, you’ll end up finding out rather quickly that the AI can also be tricked rather easily with just a few tips and tricks. However, to truly beat them, you’ll need to take a look at all the tips we’re going to be talking about below.


Play The Hiding Game:


If you have an enemy coming after you and you are behind cover, it is the perfect opportunity to play defensively. The enemy, once they see a sliver of your Mech, will try to shoot at you pretty much no matter what weapon they are using. This is a perfect opportunity for you to peak and go back behind cover and force them to waste their ammo. The best use of this is against rockets or slow traveling projectiles. So, the Missile Racks and the RPGs are the best for this.


Our favorite for this, of course, is the Missile Rack because once you hit the fire button on this, it just continually fires your entire payload. So, it is very easy to peak out once, get them to waste all their ammo, and then you are free to fire at them while they are reloading.


Avoid Going All Out:


The AI is not going to veer off from you once they have you in their sights. This can be very difficult to manage, especially when there are multiple friendlies or enemies on sight and they are all trying to fire at you. Don't be the bait here. You should make sure that you get behind some cover so that even though they focus on you, your teammates can shoot them or get out of the way and go somewhere where you can hind. One of our favorite things to do is use the Killshot.


Because he is so mobile, after we take some shots at the enemy, they're going to start coming after you. This is the perfect opportunity to use your melee dash to get further away and just keep playing keep away while you chip away at their health. It's kind of a long process, but it's one where you know you are going to defeat them, and you don't have to rely on your teammates at all to do it.

Know Enemy Spawn Locations:


If you are looking at your mini-map, which you should be in many games, it's going to be obvious in CPC where all the spawn points are and the red ones where the enemy has. In those instances, you should be aware of those spawn points when you are fighting the enemy. Let's say you are at their spawn point, and there’s one enemy, and you kill him. The clear choice for a lot of us is just to rush in and take that spawn point.

But, if you are not fast enough, the enemy loves to pop up with a guy right before you take that spawn point and kill you quickly. Because you just have all your ammo and probably your ability to deal with the enemy we just talked about, it's easy for them to pop up and just get a quick kill on you. Don't let them do that and be a sitting duck. If you've killed an enemy and if you are not going to be able to make it to their spawn point fast enough to stop them, don't try it. Just back up, get behind cover, and if somebody else pops out, at least you will be safe, and then you can reload your weapon.


Take Spawn Points with Caution:

While, of course, this won't apply to Tournament where its deathmatch as it has no spawn points. But this will be effective in Control Point Capture. As we've mentioned earlier, enemies love to top pup on you when trying to take their control point. So, you want to make sure that you have the advantage if they spawn. Wait for your weapons to reload and wait for your abilities to recharge so you can get more benefit out of it and win that match.


If you are using Killshot after you kill an enemy, dash over their control point, so you start capturing it, and they can't spawn. If you are using Panther, lay down a fence. If you are using Guardian or Zephyr, have your ability ready, so if they pop up, you can freeze them or stop their weapons from operating. This is the best way to handle these types of spawn point captures and something you should get in the habit of doing so that enemies cannot surprise you at all.


Know Long Sight Lines:


You have to know here the long sightlines are. Every single map has areas that have long sightlines. Sometimes, right when you first start. There will be times when as soon as you spawn, the enemy AI from the opposite side of the map will take a chunk of your health in the first few seconds. You have to be aware of where the long sightlines are so that you can dash across them and get to cover as soon as possible or put up a Panther barrier fence.


You can also always look at our Ultimate Weapon’s guide for the game to know what you should pick at every point!


Some areas are long sightlines right where the enemy can spawn. So, if you are in an open area and the enemy spawn point is visible to you, and you have no cover, you probably will get hit by someone with a Longarm. Probably, a Zephyr with a Longarm 8 and a Longarm 10. So, if you are going to watch across a long open plain, especially close to those spawn points or near enough to an enemy spawn point, be prepared to put down your ability or somehow get behind cover, or else you are probably going to take a chunk of health or die from that kind of an attack.


Use Special Cover Wisely:


What do we mean by a special cover? Well, the primary example is, of course, the Panther shield. That's optimal. Why is it a special cover? It is because the enemy will still actually shoot at it. Often, when you are behind rocks or barriers, they won't bother shooting at you because you are invulnerable.


But, if you put up a panther barrier shield or use one of your friendlies as a meat shield or an Ares shield that you get close enough to, the enemy will waste their firearm. Sometimes you are in a situation where the enemy has barely gone on you, and you can't run away or take the fight because your going to lose. Using a Panther Barrier or some sight of special barrier is a great way to force them to waste their ammo.


You might have weapons where your weapons are reloading and won't be able to fight your enemy head-on. But, if you put down one for these special barriers, there’s a high chance that you might be able to get away or get enough time to at least reload and start fighting your enemies.


Finding the Right Moment:


When you are up against a player, their psyche can be unpredictable; you never know when they might push or when they'll be defending. However, it is fairly simple with AI. They always have one option, which is to just be as aggressive as possible.

Therefore, they can be quite easy to judge, and you'll be able to quickly get in their metaphorical head. After you get the hang of their aggressive plays, you'll be able to take them down quickly and swiftly.




Now that you've got the hang of how you can beat the AI, progressing in the game should feel much better as you'll be able to take them down quickly. Beating the AI is an integral part of playing the game as it lets you collect XP, which you would not be able to get otherwise.
