This article is about the Titan finisher move, and may redirect here. For the Pilot equivalent, see Execution.
Termination, often referred to as execution (not to be mixed with the Pilot melee move, Execution), is a special Titan melee attack in Titanfall. 200 Experience Points is awarded upon performing this on a piloted Titan. It can be performed on doomed hostile Titans by meleeing from within 6.6675 meters and from an angle of 45 degrees in front of the titan. All terminations play a specific animation exclusive to each Titan chassis if the doomed titan is manned, if performed on an Auto-Titan, the animation will simply show your titan punching into the Titan, and then the Titan explodes.
Grabs the enemy's fist and then proceeds to kick the Titan's shoulder to rip the right arm off and then follow this up by ripping the left arm off before bashing the doomed Titan's head with its now ripped-off left arm.
Executions work in basically the same way in Titanfall 2. However, they are now conducted from a third-person standpoint, rather than the first-person view of the originals. The execution is also greatly simplified: simply performing a melee attack on an enemy Titan that's in the Doomed state will trigger a Termination.
Rips the arm off the Titan after its attempt to punch her using a Laser Shot. Ion smashes the opposing Titan with its severed arm, causing it to kneel, then Ion thrusts its Splitter Rifle into the cockpit and shoots until the Titan is dead.
Laser shots the Titan, knocks down the Titan as it rushes for a punch, and fires the Laser Core into the open cockpit, vaporizing the Pilot if they are inside.
Rips the enemy Pilot out of the cockpit and crushes the Pilot, then finishes the Titan off with a kick. If there's no Pilot, Monarch will look at its empty hand in confusion for a moment before kicking the enemy Titan down.
Energy Thief Kit
(Not to be confused with the Monarch Kit, which enables this execution to be used) Monarch pulls open the enemy Titan's cockpit and her Pilot disembarks. Monarch's Pilot kicks the escaping enemy Pilot back into the cockpit before climbing on top of the enemy Titan. Monarch slaps the enemy Titan's hatch down on the enemy Pilot as he tries to get out, killing the Pilot from the impact. Monarch's Pilot pulls a Battery out of the enemy Titan before jumping back into Monarchs still-open cockpit, installing the Battery. Monarch then kicks the enemy titan over, as her Pilot is mid-air holding the Battery.
In addition, several of the Apex Predator boss fights in the campaign have unique execution animations that can be perfomed by BT-7274.
BT rips Ash out of her Titan, crushes her in his fist, and kicks the Titan over. This was later used for the "Checkmate" Termination for the Monarch-class Titan, and may be used by friendly Vanguard Titans in Trial By Fire. Also, if close enough to a wall, BT instead slams Ash against the wall, crushing her.
