Titanfall 2 developer Respawn recently teased the upcoming game’s Titans in a new video, and now it has released another short trailer that gives us a better idea of what to expect from Legion, the minigun-toting mech.
Legion’s main weapon is the minigun-like Predator Cannon, which utilizes two different modes: long-range and auto-lock. The long-range option seems to work like a regular gun; just aim the cannon at your enemies and pull the trigger. Auto-lock, on the other hand, seems like a special ability that allows players to hit enemies by only aiming in their general direction.

Additionally, the new Titan can utilize its Gun Shield to defend itself. The shield can be active at the same time you’re shooting enemies, but it only seems to protect its front.
The video also shows off the Predator Cannon’s Powershot, which looks like it works exactly as it sounds: a powered shot that deals heavy damage.
Lastly, Legion uses the barrel of its cannon to lift an enemy Titan into the air before continuing to shoot it. It looks like an execution-style move, and you can see it for yourself in the video at the top of the article.
