However, this rules book will not be the only source material as time goes on. This one looks to be the Warmonger to the Reaver’s Imperator, focusing entirely on long range firepower. Retrieved from ” https: Reaver Laser Blaster, although not the best gun we’ve seen so far it is the best super heavy killer you can fit on your carapace, and although it won’t out shoot not by a long shot any of your main guns, it will more than happily wipe out a knight with 7 wounds to spare, making it idea for taking out small things which you wouldn’t normally bother shooting at, baneblades, land raiders, you know, small things by comparison to what your main guns are firing at.

Once you get past the temptation to sit at the back of the boards and vomit firepower at long range all game, you will find every weapon has a place. Close quarters weapons all knight weapons, fists, inferno cannon are extremely strong but require some planning to get the best use out of. Apart from ruleobok standard titanius arm weapons and a pair of quad auto-cannons, it’s packing a monstrous gun on its back as a carapace weapon.

Of course, this section provides the missions for each mode of play. However, if your in a situation where you want a melee weapon, it’s because you know your going to be in melee with some big monsters, and as such you should still take the lascutter over the fist.


The game pays homage to the versions of Adeptus Titanicus that came before and references that some mechanics from older editions were used to inspire this newest edition.

This will allow players with previous Adeptus Titanicus experience to transition into the newest edition more easily. Mori Quake Cannon, and by extension, the most powerful gun in the entire game in terms of average output, take a moment to let that truly sink init out performs all other weapons against all targets except the twin mega bolter against infantry and forces all units hit by it to half their movement ranges for their next turn, allowing you to keep calm and keep on shooting.

The final section of the rules are the optional rules, which fit on a single page. The section then goes on to describe the three different play modes in Adeptus Titanicus.

So unless this weapon gets some kind of buff just don’t take it. I think they really bring out what Titan combat really is.

They can even help with shields. These rules also add additional effects on Titan plasma reactors, awakened Machine Spirits, Titan squadrons, and Knight support.

The turn sequence format in the game is fantastic. Weak against armour, you’d think once they kill shields they’re useless. No word on how hard it hits, but the answer is probably like a freight train at terminal velocity. However, things are complicated by two matters, firstly there’s the fist’s throwing its dead enemy ability although its identical to the reaver power fist abilityan ability which should not be overlooked as as previously mentioned it can target characters with this ability, and secondly, the lascutter and fist both come with inbuilt ranged weapons, of which the fists inbuilt bolter is on AVERAGE if the lascutter makes more than hits it surpasses the bolter but this is unlikely better, especially in overwatch.

The rules begin with the basic rules, which explain the main parts of each phase and how they are conducted.

Matched Play is about a balanced fight where skill-at-arms is most important.

It will also lead to players needing to consider not just which weapons fire first on a Titan, but which Titans fire first since some will be more effective at cracking shields than others, while others xdeptus designed to deliver punishing death blows.


Toughest thing in the game right now, even if it’s not highest in wounds. A quick note, everything you read below also applies for the Dark Mechanicum’s Titans as they have precisely the same rules although they have different namescome on GW, not even a daemon firing Gatling gun for the Warlord Titan?

People who titanicux played Warhammer 40, 8 th edition or Warhammer: The Chainfist, a weapon which is supposed to be a true TITANIC murderer is far out-passed by its power adepths sibling, and all because it has a -1 to hit. So if you fire this at an eg ork horde, you could potentially hit every unit in your opponents army, and as it stands there’s no rule that says that these extra hits cannot adeptys back and re-hit the original units, so while the quake cannon is the most powerful weapon on average, the plasma annihilator has the potential to destroy LITERALLY your opponents army, you may not do it in 99 out of of your games, but on the th you might just pull it off Much of what is available in this section has already been covered in many Black Library or Forge World publications.
