And how about the Glaive Thrower?

Besides, by looking at the trademark 3DMG, do I get the impression that the author could be a fan of Tribes universe?


Due to the research the humans done with the titans, the titans only have one weak spot and can regenerate if the nape of the neck is not cut off so nothing would be effective except for swords or something i can't think of right now.

The blades they're currently using are the best quality stuff they can manage. It's just that titan flesh is actually pretty damn tough. The fact they can consistently cut deep into Titan Flesh should be evidence of that.


As for the other things you mentioned...most of those things don't sound like they'd be particularly effective. Since mortars fire in an arc, you can't use them for direct fire on Titans. Meaning no chance of making an aimed shot at the neck, or peppering them with enough grape shot to slow them down. And I'm not sure fire would burn Titan flesh fast enough to offset the regeneration.

As for machine guns/gatlings...I guess being able to put a continuous stream of fire on a Titan's face to disorient them might be useful, but I'm not sure it'd be that much more effective than cannons in the grand scheme of things.

It's simple, we shoot giant slabs of sunscreen from the cannons onto the titans so they can't absorb any forms of light.... then we wait and strike when they slow down.

I think i've come up with a legit weapon that can be used to kill any of the shifters with ease, and can be created with the SNK's current level of tech. It's super simple and super hot: a long-barreled cannon (~3 meters) with a big caliber (200 mm FTW), firing sabot long-rod penetrators. The diameter combined with a sabot will allow for transferring the energy of huge load of gunpowder to the projectile, while the long barrel will increase the time given transfer it. This will result in huge muzzle velocity (compared to the cannonballs, duh) combined with great cross-sectional density and, possibly, better aerodynamic qualities, resulting quite a high pressure. Surely enough to bust the armored titan's shell, IMHO, and incapacitate the person inside, even when shot facing him, not from behind the titan's back. If creating a delayed fuse is possible, then it could also be stuffed with explosives, so that it could be rammed into a normal titans neck and then detonated when it reaches it's nape. So yeah, an easily made and highly effective weapon for a frontal assault, at least against the transforming lot.

If this story was designed to happen in a near future, I guess depleted uranium would have been useful too for better penetration. That would probably look like an oversized version of the 120mm M829 APFSDS shell.
