Quick Reference Burn Cards

Weapon Burn Cards

These cards increase the damage of the specified weapon, usually increasing damage output or through the addition of a special attribute. The weapon’s attachments and mods are determined by the card, not the Pilot’s preferred loadout.

Amped Archer

Description: Replace Anti-Titan weapon with an Archer firing powerful Titanhammer Missiles.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Last Titan Standing
  • This already powerful Anti-Titan weapon gets a damage boost, making the Archer Heavy Rocket a great Anti-Titan weapon for dropping an enemy Titan’s shield…or taking it out. However, the projectile travels at a slower speed, so make sure you have a clear shot.

Amped C.A.R.

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal C.A.R. SMG.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Dominate close-quarter combat with this super-charged C.A.R. SMG; it makes defending objectives much easier.

Amped Charge Rifle

Description: Replace Anti-Titan Weapon with a faster charging Charge Rifle.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Last Titan Standing
  • The Charge Rifle is the most powerful Anti-Titan weapon. This Burn Card increases the charge speed, allowing it to fire more energy beams at a faster rate, significantly increasing the weapon’s overall damage output.

Amped DMR

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a sonar scope Longbow-DMR Sniper.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This Burn Card adds Active Radar Pulse when zoomed in with the Longbow-DMR Sniper. An excellent card to use to communicate the location of enemies to your teammates.

Amped EVA-8

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with an automatic EVA-8 Shotgun.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Catch enemies by surprise when roaming the interiors of buildings with this powerful auto-shotgun; reload often.

Amped G2A4

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal G2A4 Rifle.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This enhanced G2A4 Rifle allows you to take precision shots across the map and take down enemies.

Amped Hemlok

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal Hemlok BF-R.

Rarity: Common

Tactics

Amped Kraber

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a Kraber-AP Sniper that fires explosive rounds.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Explosive rounds have small splash damage radius, ideal for damaging/killing tight groups of minions. Rounds also inflict light damage against Titans.

Amped LMG

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a rapid-fire Spitfire LMG.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • If there are multiple Titans on the map, combine this Burn Card with Cloak and rodeo attack as many enemy Titans as you can. The higher rate of fire allows the Spitfire LMG to tear through a Titan’s internal systems in no time.

Amped Mag Launcher

Description: Replace Anti-Titan Weapon with a high-capacity, automatic Mag Launcher.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Last Titan Standing
  • With a larger magazine capacity and a higher rate of fire, the Mag Launcher is more devastating against enemy Titans; engage at close range, preferably while the Titan’s bodyshield is down.

Amped P2011

Description: Replace Sidearm Weapon with a burst fire Hammond P2011.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • An excellent Burn Card for a rifleman or sniper, the Hammond P2011 is now set to burst fire instead of single fire, allowing for a faster rate of fire.

Amped R-101C

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal R-101C Carbine.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • The carbine is already the most versatile Pilot weapon; take advantage of the extra firepower and dominate the enemy in all distances.

Amped R-97

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal R-97 Compact SMG.

Tactics
  • Dominate close-quarter combat with this super-charged R-97; it makes defending objectives much easier.

Amped RE-45

Description: Replace Sidearm Weapon with a more lethal RE-45 Autopistol.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This Burn Card benefits the Pilot that likes to snipe, giving them a more powerful RE-45 Autopistol as a close-quarter backup.

Amped Sidewinder

Description: Replace Anti-Titan Weapon with a double ammo capacity Sidewinder.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Last Titan Standing
  • With double the ammo, this Burn Card makes the Sidewinder a great Anti-Titan weapon; target the red glowing sections on a Titan’s hull to score one critical hit after another.

Amped Smart Pistol

Description: Replace Primary Weapon with a more lethal Smart Pistol MK5.

Rarity: Common

Tactics

Amped Wingman

Description: Replace Sidearm Weapon with a match trigger B3 Wingman.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • The B3 Wingman is a powerful revolver, but its only down side is its slow fire rate. Equip this card to have a match trigger equipped, allowing a Pilot to fire the Wingman as quick as they can pull the trigger.

Bottomless Frags

Description: Replace Ordnance Weapon with infinite, more lethal Frag Grenades.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This is an excellent card to use while playing Pilot Hunter; a direct Frag Grenade will kill an enemy Pilot and having the addition of infinite grenades makes it even more worthwhile.

  • Grenades replenish with time.

Shock Rocks

  • Grenades replenish with time.

Personal Alarm System

Description: Replace Ordnance Weapon with infinite Arc Mines with a larger blast radius.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This Burn Card can be optimized within Capture the Flag and Hardpoint Domination. Place these Arc Mines around the objective and become the ultimate defender.
  • If a Pilot sets any more mines after initially setting three down, the previous ones will disappear, since you are only allowed to have three out at once.
  • Mines replenish with time.

Surplus Satchels

Description: Replace Ordnance Weapon with infinite, more lethal Satchels,

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Capture the Flag and Hardpoint Domination
  • Pilots should use Satchels to defend objectives and place on enemy Titans. The Satchel Charges now have a more lethal blast, doing more damage to enemy Titans; ideal for rodeo attacks.
  • Charges replenish with time.

Stealth Burn Cards

These Burn Cards allow you to traverse the map in a stealthier fashion, allowing a Pilot to take out enemies without being seen.

Active Camo

Description: Replace Pilot Tactical Ability with longer-lasting Cloak.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Using this Burn Card during Hardpoint Domination is super effective. The longer-lasting Cloak allows a Pilot to change locations and hide from enemies when neutralizing or defending the objective.
  • A great Burn Card for escaping or rodeo attacking enemy Titans.

Ghost Squad

Description: Permanently cloaked as a Pilot, in addition to having your Pilot Tactical Ability.

Rarity: Rare

Tactics
  • This rare Burn Card excels in many game modes and is super effective to use with a sniper. Easily move around the map while cloaked, but be sure to have Stim or Active Radar Pulse equipped as the card does not take up your Tactical Ability slot.
  • This card is effective when performing rodeo attacks on enemy Titans.

Speed Burn Cards

If racing around the map is your thing, then these Burn Cards are what you’re looking for. Quickly change positions on the map while using these cards.

Adrenaline Infusion

Description: Permanently stimmed as a Pilot, in addition to having your Pilot Tactical Ability.

Tactics
  • This rare Burn Card keeps Stim active permanently. Use it at the beginning of the game to quickly cut off the opposing team. Permanent Stim means a Pilot’s health will be regenerated constantly as long as they are not being shot at.
  • Make jumps that a normal Pilot isn’t capable of, allowing for new wall runs and escape routes.

Prosthetic Legs

Description: Faster Pilot movement speed.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • The Prosthetic Legs Burn Card is best used at the start of matches; use the increased Pilot speed to reach power positions before the opposing team.
  • Extra speed makes you harder to hit, particularly while wall running.
  • Using Prosthetic Legs with Stim does not make you go faster than normal Stim. So you may want to select a different Tactical Ability when playing this card.

Smuggled Stimulant

Description: Replace Pilot Tactical Ability with longer-lasting Stim.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This Burn Card provides a longer-lasting Stim, allowing a Pilot to escape losing firefights a lot easier.
  • Longer-lasting Stim also allows a Pilot to regenerate health faster, making them more durable during firefights. But you must still take cover to regenerate health.

Intel Burn Cards

A Pilot’s situational awareness is increased when using these Burn Cards; quickly locate the positions of the enemies and relay them to your team.

Aural Implant

Description: Replace Pilot Tactical Ability with longer-lasting Active Radar Pulse.

Rarity: Common

Echo Vision

Description: Active Radar Pulse is permanently active, in addition to having your Pilot Tactical Ability.

Rarity: Rare

Tactics
  • Equip when defending a hardpoint or flag. Equip your Pilot with a shotgun and kill enemies as they walk through an entrance.

Map Hack

Rarity: Rare

Tactics
  • A top five Burn Card. Pilots will want to play safe when using this card, as it grants a Pilot full minimap vision…as long as they stay alive.

Packet Sniffer

Description: You automatically generate Active Radar Pulses periodically.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • A pulse is sent out from a Pilot every few seconds, revealing the position of enemies. Equip this card when playing as a sniper and watch your kills increase.

Satellite Uplink

Description: Reveal all enemies on the minimap every ten seconds.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This Burn Card is an excellent choice in all game modes. The enemies are constantly shown on the minimap every ten seconds. This allows a Pilot to take their time, flanking unsuspecting enemy minions and Pilots.

Spider Sense

Description: There is an audible warning when enemy players are nearby.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This is an excellent Burn Card to use when defending an objective or hanging on walls as you wait to ambush nearby enemies. This card triggers a sound that alerts a Pilot when enemies are near.

NPC Burn Cards

These Burn Cards allow Pilots to make use of the multiple minions on the map, great for scoring big points in Attrition.

Conscription

Description: Nearby friendly Grunts fight for you—their kills count toward your score.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • This is an excellent Burn Card to use when playing Attrition. Engage enemy Pilots while friendly Grunts assist, either shooting other minions or damaging the opposing Pilot.

Double Agent

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Use this Burn Card to kill enemy Pilots, evade taking damage from minions and Auto-Titans, and battle an enemy Pilot on an even playing field.

WiFi Virus

Description: Automatically capture nearby enemy Spectres.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in The Colony in the campaign when playing as the Militia. The card is also effective in Made Men when playing as either faction.
  • This card is of great use when playing on maps heavily saturated with Spectres. Simply walk past enemy Spectres to automatically hack them. Hacked Spectres then follow you around the map, engaging enemies and giving you all the credit for their kills.

Miscellaneous Burn Cards

These cards don’t fit into any specific category. Instead, they provide a wide range of benefits, often helping trick or catch your opponents off-guard.

Massive Payload

Description: Your Titan Eject causes an extended nuclear explosion.

Rarity: Common

Tactics
  • Best used in Last Titan Standing
  • This Burn Card allows a Titan to have two Tier 1 Kits, one of them being Nuclear Ejection because of the Burn Card. This gives your Titan a significant advantage when battling enemy Titans.
  • The closer the Titan is to enemies, the more damage the nuclear explosion will cause. So always dash near enemies to catch them in the blast radius before you eject from your doomed Titan.

Rematch

Rarity: Rare

Tactics
  • Wait to play this card until Spectres have entered the battle, shortly after Titans arrive.
