Titans: now I see you, you fucking bitch

u/IShartedOnUrPillow Spicy Scorch Girl Jun 28 '22

I've gotten pretty good at spotting the slight distortion when cloaked pilots use their jumpkits (even with low profile it's still slightly visible) and have gotten some pretty funny hackusations from people that I've punched.

u/ice_dragon6_0 im the shitist pilot alive Jun 28 '22

I've gotten pretty good at spotting the slight distortion

Look. I have a eyes of a sniper at a distance, but I can't compete someone you can do spot the difference while in a warzone

u/poor_choice_doer Jun 28 '22

I can’t see it at all, the old ‘box just can’t handle that detail. I usually just guess where they are based on where I last saw them and go for it. Not too reliable but it works sometimes.

27

u/IShartedOnUrPillow Spicy Scorch Girl Jun 28 '22

it must be extra satisfying for you then if you don't get it often

38

u/poor_choice_doer Jun 28 '22

“cmoncmoncmoncmon”

WHOOMP

“Fuck yeah.”

u/pmaogeaoaporm Jun 28 '22

For me it's not that hard. I main Northstar so it's kinda easier for me to spot and shoot them I guess, but it's still really visible.

It's also very satisfying when I hit stealth ejecting pilot midair since their jump kit lets me know where they are exactly all the time :D

11

u/IShartedOnUrPillow Spicy Scorch Girl Jun 28 '22

I especially love cloaked pilots that eject but don't have low profile.

It's so funny when they watch the killcam of me tracking them and yell at me.

Plus I enjoy playing into the hackusations

3

u/DfaultiBoi Jun 28 '22

I've just gotten pretty good at predicting where they would be, and just striking there. Can be pretty funny sometimes cuz they're always so baffled by it

8

u/Titanhunter84 Jun 28 '22

You can activate the Sneak option in your pilot settings which makes the pilot quiet while rodeoing the Titan and reduces the visibility of the jump pack

10

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 28 '22

The cloaked pilot is still visible to titans with low profile. The only true invisibility is phase shift.

5

u/powerfullatom111 Phase class best class Jun 28 '22

PHASE SHIFT #1 LETS GOOOOOO BABEYYYYY YEAAAHH

7

u/Comprehensive-Sky367 gen 100 kraber Jun 28 '22

No it isn’t? The only thing a titan could see from a cloaked pilot is jump jets? And low profile removes them.

15

u/FoundationMan_Isaac Jun 28 '22

I’ve seen cloaked pilots while inside my Titan. The visual distortion is subtle, but you aren’t 100% gone. Also, if they’re on the ground, footsteps kick up some dust.

13

u/Tiky-Do-U The flame god demands corpses Jun 28 '22

Nope, cloaked pilots are almost invisible to titans, however there is some very slight distortion visible, it's extremely hard to spot but a very skilled titan player can slam even the lowest of profilers

3

u/retro_aviator Better ingredients, better pizza, Papa Scorch Jun 29 '22

That's why I run low profile with grapple, specifically for the rodeo delay. If they're gonna see me anyway, I might as well be in and out before they can react properly

4

u/KitC4t_TV KitC4tGang Jun 28 '22

Much harder to see but still slightly visible even without jump jets. You won't be sniping cloaked pilots that are far away but close range (~3 dashes worth of range) if you know what you're looking for you'll see a slight distortion.

4

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 28 '22

This man claims to have g100 kraber and still doesn't know you can see cloaked pilots in a titan lmao.

3

u/suckafartfag Jun 28 '22

No, It reduces them. It says in the discretion.

1

u/Drunken-Isopod Jun 28 '22

Honestly same, it's so satisfying to kill Cloak pilots mid-cloak lol.

1

u/MapleTreeWithAGun Ace of the ACES Jun 29 '22

The most annoying thing is batteries revealing showing through cloak. Why the fuck is that a thing

1

u/Shushady Jun 29 '22

Laser shotting them after a cloak eject is best. I've just done it so many times I don't need to see them.

1

u/Cayden5 Jun 29 '22

If a ckoaked pilot walks through dust it gives a great outline even if they don't user their jump kit, watch around drop pods and recently dropped titans for free kills

1

u/LeavesTheSalad Jun 29 '22

but you see this is why i use satchels

137

u/antisocialscorch69 BIG PAPA SCORCH Jun 28 '22

It really isn't...

253

u/str4t0s_yt Jun 28 '22

It isn’t invisibility because you can still see the outline of the pilot quite well

172

u/Interesting_Pilot_13 Jun 28 '22

Not even the outline, I can still see the whole pilot

It's especially funny when they're running towards me to punch me and I just fill them with lead

44

u/JustUltRra Jun 28 '22

Like how you can see the Cloak pilot in the right chair.

23

u/Thrasher317 Jun 28 '22

You're the first person to notice. ;)

5

u/JustUltRra Jun 28 '22

Thank you

5

u/ThatSteveBrown Jun 28 '22

Almost like it’s got a thin veil or something that’s cloaking it.

1

u/Quiet_Relief_ None Jun 29 '22

yeah, if you look directly at them, but if the cloack pilot is flanking you in your peripherals, chances are, you will miss it

71

u/Devils_468 Jun 28 '22

Cloaked pilots means they camouflage, invisibility means you can't see them at all

27

u/PridePilot None Jun 28 '22

Are you like, blind or something?

49

u/Mr-Industrial Jun 28 '22

Yeah but it's also super easy to see cloak users, it's almost comical. The only use is back of map kraber sniping.

18

u/Alespren None Jun 28 '22

it's a lot harder for titans

16

u/FlowingFrog04 None Jun 28 '22

I remember seeing somewhere that they’re supposed to be completely invisible to titans even though it’s not the case ingame

9

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

Completely invisible to auto titans. A perceptive pilot in a titan will recognize the faint outline and pixelated effect.

7

u/TheScienceGuy120 Me & My 5 Holo Friends Jun 28 '22

They ARE completely invisible to titans, you just have to run the low profile kit with it so they don't see your jump jets

2

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

They are not completely invisible to titans. There is still a faint outline and pixelated effect.

2

u/sseeyiatiin Jun 29 '22

It's really easy to tell with some backgrounds as there's a weird "off" look to the pilot

0

u/DarkWingAng3l Jun 29 '22

Technically they are still invisible to the titans as auto titans can't see them, a skilled pilot can

13

u/Creative_Recording_7 Jun 28 '22

Am I the only one who sees the cloaked guy in the right chair

14

u/anometrus Average Angular Proboscis Male Jun 28 '22

not really. if you insist on calling it something other than "cloak", you could say "transparency" or "see-through", since invisibility means non-visible. Cloaked pilots are barely visible to other pilots, though not to titans

4

u/Xander_Clarke Ion is my waifu Jun 28 '22

Difference?

29

u/Epicmonk117 None Jun 28 '22

Cloaking is just a layman’s term for active camouflage, which is sci-fi speak for invisibility.

5

u/big_joey_the_sequel Jun 28 '22

why am i getting tf2 posts in my home page im subbed to tf2 theres a very big difference

6

u/PolishJakey I Love Refrigerators Jun 28 '22

Because both TF2s are awesome.

u/A7THU3 Jun 28 '22

Sharp eyes can see it

u/SCP_Void Jun 29 '22

Safe and sound

u/Autotec20 Titanfall 2 | Fronteir Defense player Jun 29 '22

You're still visible, especially against the right backgrounds. The only way you'd be invisible is if the walls and floors were pure white.

2

u/Sejitachi Jun 29 '22

I just hope if TF3 ever comes out it gets rewored along with grapple. running low profile should FULLY REMOVE JUMPJET TRAILS and running cloak make batteries completely invisible on your back. Low profile should also make the grapple silent cuz god forbid i grapple a titan who has a headset on.....

3

u/LiteratureOne1469 Jun 28 '22

I can’t see clocked pilots for shit

2

u/VirgilTheConfused Monarch Jun 28 '22

You’re just blind. Cloak helps in the midst of battle when you’re jumping around like crazy or when you could be seen from farther away because you can see people up close

1

u/Manic_Mechanist Northstar systems online Jun 28 '22

Yeah it’s invisibility until you shoot, or don’t shoot, or move, or don’t move, or do anything at all because you are still comically easy to see

1

u/japanese-acorn Jun 29 '22

Kinda like the one you didn’t mention on this picture?

0

u/kit786 shotgun cowboy Jun 29 '22

Yes, that's what it does, congrats you solved the puzzle, very smart.

1

u/HarmonyTheConfuzzled Jun 28 '22

It looks to me to be some kind of projection over the form of the pilot. So in a way you are “wearing” the cloak instead of being see-through yourself.

1

u/Odd_Patchwork Jun 28 '22

I would probably be considered a cloak main, but it is a very imperfect tactical. The silhouette Is fairly easy to see. The jump jets are easy to spot. Considering the insane mobility of grapple I hardly think cloak is an issue. I used to be upset they gave grapple back the second charge. The solo charge barely reduced it's popularity. But with two charges and short grappling the tactical is a blast. I'm now ok with how grapple is because of how much fun it is to use. If I made any changes to the tacticals I'd rather see each one buffed to bring them up to grapples level of influence on the battlefield.

u/PolishJakey I Love Refrigerators Jun 28 '22

Hey, guys, I got a question. I haven't really played Titanfall 2 in some time (The last time I did was on PS4, 3 years ago), and wanted to get back into it but my friends told me that the game has some "problems with DDoS attacks". Is that true?

2

u/FoundationMan_Isaac Jun 28 '22

Still issues with server timeouts, but it’s playable now.

2

u/PolishJakey I Love Refrigerators Jun 28 '22

Okay. Thank you so much, mate :D

1

u/I_Hate_The_Letter_W Jun 28 '22

spy has invisibility because none of the other mercs can see him(unless you bump into him). if you’re on the same team as him he has cloaking because you can still see him (slightly)

1

u/SaltedRouge Jun 28 '22

Whenever I use cloak I get spotted instantly but when someone else uses cloak they just disappear into thin air

1

u/StarWarsDude19 Campaign enjoyer. Jun 28 '22

Thought this was a Team Fortress 2 post lmfao.

1

u/BingleTingle Jun 28 '22

it's not full though, it's a semi-transparent silhouette

1

u/JustUltRra Jun 28 '22

It is invisibility. All AI's even Piloted titans can't see you. So pilots much have built in technology within our helmets to see the pilots heat signatures or cloak affect. Also I can the Cloak Pilot sitting in the right chair

1

u/that_sad_person101 Jun 28 '22

I also think its invisibility. The grunts completly lose track of you. I think the pilot helmet have some kind added tech that lets it be slighty seen

1

u/TheGreatSmolOne Jun 28 '22

I always believed that the only way to see a cloaked pilot when in a titan was by their jump jets, but if they had low profile you were fucked. That was until I realised 1 week ago that they actually can be visible but it's just the background slightly warped and wavey

1

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

You don't need a background to see the pilot. They always have a faint outline and pixelated effect.

1

u/TheGreatSmolOne Jun 29 '22

Well technically they always have a background so... but yes the pixilated affect. I haven't Iver 17 days spent in this game and only realised it last week ;-;

u/Kris_2031 Jun 28 '22

Dude thers someone on your right.

1

u/antonio_lewit Taste the Saltball Jun 28 '22

But are you invisible?

1

u/Winnapig Jun 28 '22

Nah, I can see them running around it’s not complete invisibility

1

u/MoistMosfet Jun 28 '22

You are still visible. It's cloak

1

u/Jpmunzi Jun 28 '22

Is a pilot with cloack sitting next to him or I’m imaginating things?

1

u/bommer-yeet-2 TF1 GANG savetitanfall.com Jun 28 '22

Nah

1

u/XxRocky88xX Jun 28 '22

This poor man’s probably never seen a rainbow before

1

u/adidas_stalin Jun 29 '22

Then what would cloak be then?

1

u/Military-ants Jun 29 '22

I am very sorry but I see the pilot next to crowders left arm.

1

u/me3888 Jun 29 '22

It’s invisible to titan sensors but it’s cloak fo other pilots

1

u/SylvainGautier420 Jun 29 '22

No, it’s not invisibility.

Also, even Titans can see a cloaked Pilot — although it is VERY difficult. A cloud of dust makes it easier, though.

1

u/DpBAMF Jun 29 '22

You got flamed💀

1

u/Straight-Increase-11 Jun 29 '22

Thought this was about the other tf2 for a second

1

u/AlphaWolf-YT Jun 29 '22

It is not invisibility cause if you have a sharp enough eye you can make out the outline of them similar to the elite cloaking in halo

1

u/Noontide6667 Jun 29 '22

Care to elaborate?

1

u/LoudAngryJerk Jun 29 '22

Except you can see it. It conceals you, it doesn't make you invisible. So you're wrong.

1

u/fancy_yarnold Jun 29 '22

I agree , the invis watch needs a buff so the outline doesnt show when bumping into anything

1

u/EpicNarwhal23_ None Jun 29 '22

its more like halo 3 active camp but ydy

1

u/WolfexRansom Jun 29 '22

It’s irritatingly true

1

u/Fleet_Admiral_Auto Jun 29 '22

Spy mains beg to differ

1

u/Linkalibure Jun 29 '22

Invisibility would imply I couldn't see them, and I can definitely see that motherfucker running at me with the charge rifle

1

u/orwhynotrandom Jun 29 '22

Doesn't save ya from a direct hit from a scorch round

1

u/HentaiBoiyo Stuck in the Ceiling Jun 29 '22

Not really, it's pretty easy to spot a cloaked pilot at any distance, so you can't call it invisibility, because you're not totally invisible.

1

u/hodnydylko None Jun 29 '22

Nah if you get used to it you can still see the slight distortion

1

u/Flaoooy-2 Scorch And Cloak with punching Jun 29 '22

I only play cloak because big, and requires more skill the a-wall(or whatever the name is), and im pretty sure cloaked is bigger than a-wall

1

u/StraTbow Jun 29 '22

You have no idea how many jumpscare cloak pilots gave me

1

u/porkipine- Jun 29 '22

Cloak has always been so easy to see

1

u/TheKFakt0r Jun 29 '22

I have never seen a game with a cloak that is so clearly visibly

1

u/Parrot-Man- Jun 29 '22

As a cloak main,it’s pretty easy to spot the cloaked person if they miss there initial shots

1

u/HeterodactylFormosan Jun 29 '22

Holochad > Cloaksimp. Go ahead, spray your car at the six of us. It won’t un-charge rifle you.

1

u/Nouache Jun 29 '22

It is for me, my vision sucks

1

u/Empty-Cream-8352 Jun 29 '22

No it's just a cloak, easy to see if you pay attention

1

u/EvoG ......... :( Jun 29 '22

Invisibility would mean there is no way to detect you by optical means, which in this case is false because you do still visibly show up, it's just faint and only easier to see when moving.

So it's still a cloak, and not invisibility

1

u/MrMcFlameYeeter Jun 29 '22

Applicable to both TF2s!

1

u/Kureizy_Diamondo Weeb Robot Jun 29 '22

That's debatable, because it's a cloak when you are a pilot, but it's invisibility when you're a titan lol

u/CarbonDragon20 Jun 28 '22

Fellow cloak user, what Titan do you use?

u/No_Librarian_4016 Actual IRL Pilot Jun 28 '22

What do you think Cloaking means Pilot? Literally the same thing

0

u/BioshockedNinja BRING BACK SNIPER CHAN Jun 28 '22

It's only invisibility to a titan's optics and grunts. They're still fairly opaque to a pilot.

3

u/Tiky-Do-U The flame god demands corpses Jun 28 '22

Also only almost invisible to a titan's optics, it creates slight distortion around it from a titans pov

u/quasur Jun 28 '22

for titans youre invisible but not for pilots. I like to use cloak and no trail for stealing lots of bats for monarchs

1

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

A cloaked pilot is not invisible to a piloted titan. They still have a faint outline and pixelated effect.

0

u/quasur Jun 29 '22

practically invisible if youre not specifically looking for it and still very hard to see when you are looking for one

1

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

Invisible means invisible. There is no practically invisible. You are either visible or not. Transparent would be a more appropriate word.

2

u/quasur Jun 29 '22

no one i have ever played against has seen me run up to then and nick their bat until im already in my titan

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

That's a cool story but it still doesn't mean you're invisible.

u/sadonly001 Jun 29 '22

oh, i thought you meant team fortress 2 in which case this would be completely accurate. In titanfall 2 its cloak but from a titans pov its invisibility

1

u/CaptainCurly95 Jun 29 '22

from a titans pov its invisibility

Not true. You can still see a faint outline and pixelated effect.
