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.

Ogre 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. Disarmed

Titanfall 2 Edit

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.

Titan Execution Name Standard execution description Prime Execution Name Prime execution description
Disarm 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. Death Stare 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.
Incineration Punches the Titan, kicks it and then burns the cockpit with his Flame Shield. Unleashed Fury Punches the Titan twice, knocking it to the ground before finishing it with the Flame Core.
Sweep the Leg Trips the Titan, and jumps high in the air, and lowers back down, inserting her gun in the cockpit, then firing a fully charged shot. Bird of Prey Jumps onto the Titan, rips its arms off, and then Flight Cores it for a few rounds, then lands on it, shattering it.
Cutting Steel Slashes the Titan twice with its Broadsword, and then impales the cockpit with it. Thunder and Lightning Ronin kicks the enemy Titan, electrifies his Broadsword, then slashes several times before finishing with an Arc Wave.
Gooser Jumps onto the Titan, pulls the Pilot out and throws it, then shoots it out of the air. Target Acquired Tone shoots the Titan once with her 40mm Tracker Cannon, sticks it into the cockpit and shoots twice, then flips the enemy titan over her head and finishes it off with a payload of Tracker Rockets.
Predator and Prey Lifts the Titan into the air with its Predator Cannon and fires away until it blows out the other side, impaling the Titan on the gun. Overpower Smashes the Titan once on each side using the Predator Cannon, then Power Shots it point-blank.
Checkmate 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 Description
Energy Thief (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.

Character Execution
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.
BT flips Richter's Titan on its back, then Salvo Cores him at point-blank range.
BT kicks Slone's Titan in the chest, before unleashing all of his missiles and the XO16A2 Chaingun into her.


  • You can still use your Titan's Ordnance and Tactical Ability while being Terminated in Titanfall.
  • During the Titan Execution animations in Titanfall 2, both executor and executee are invulnerable to any and all damage while the execution animation plays.
