Story Introduction

That day, humanity remembered.
The fear of their rule...
The humiliation of being trapped in a birdcage...

It is a world populated with gigantic beings known as Titans that feast on humans for food.
Living behind three massive Walls, mankind agreed to sacrifice its freedom in the name of security.
Growing up in the Shiganshina District, Eren Jaeger always dreamed of seeing life outside the Walls.
Despite spending his days in peace with his old friends Mikasa and Armin, he resented those that were content to live their lives trapped behind the Walls.

One day, a Colossal Titan appeared with an Armored Titan and destroyed one of the Walls, causing the lives of the young heroes to come crashing down like the very walls themselves.

Two years later...
The 104th Cadet Corps looks to take a stand against the Titans.
Among its ranks stand the familiar faces of Eren, Mikasa, and Armin.

Battle Basics

You can defeat Titans by inflicting damage to the nape area on the back of the neck.

1. Approach the Titan

Approach the Titan by pressing to move using omni-directional mobility, and to use a Boost Dash.

2. Switch to Combat Mode

Approach the Titan, and press when the marker is displayed to switch to Combat Mode.

3. Attack

Use to select a body part to attack, then press to fire an anchor at that body part in order to approach the Titan. Once you are close enough, press to attack the body part.
You will destroy the body part after you have dealt sufficient damage to it.

4. Destroy the nape

It is easier to attack the Titan's nape if you destroy its arms and legs first.
You will slay the Titan after its nape is destroyed.

Omni-Directional Mobility

Using an omni-directional mobility device attached to your hip, you can fly through the air at high speeds. The device fires steel wires that attach to walls or Titans and enable you to move as the wires are reeled back in. However, certain actions require the use of compressed gas to guide your movements.

Use to shoot wires and begin using omni-directional mobility. Holding down lets you automatically shoot out the wires again, allowing you to continue moving using omni-directional mobility. Additionally, press while using omni-directional mobility to fire compressed gas to give yourself a temporary burst of speed (Boost Dash).

*You will be unable to use a Boost Dash once the Gas Meter is empty.

Firing Wires at Targeted Body Parts

While in Combat Mode, you can press to shoot a wire, anchoring it to the body part of a targeted Titan. After the wire has hit its target, you can rotate about the Titan with . The longer you rotate about the Titan or use a Boost Dash, the more likely the anchor is to detach itself from the body part.

Switching to Combat Mode

Approach the Titan and press when the marker is displayed to switch to Combat Mode.

*If you press while in Combat Mode, you will exit Combat Mode.

Selecting Targets

If you find yourself near multiple Titans while in Combat Mode, you can use to switch between targets.


After firing the anchor, you will automatically approach the targeted body part if you do not attempt to encircle it. Once you are close enough, press to attack the body part. Your attempt will fail if you are too far away, or if you have insufficient acceleration. Attacking after a Boost Dash () or other such movements will enable you to inflict massive damage on the Titan.
*You must be at least a certain distance from a body part in order to accelerate towards it.

Titan Body Parts

Even after taking damage, a Titan's body parts will gradually recover. Eventually, the body part will be destroyed after it takes a certain amount of damage.
However, even if parts of their bodies are destroyed, they can regenerate within about one to two minutes. Aim for other body parts or the nape of their neck before they can do so.

Switching Targeted Body Parts

You can switch the body part targeted on a particular Titan by using during Combat Mode.

A Titan's Weak Point

The weak point of the Titans is the nape, on the back of their neck. You can kill a Titan by destroying its nape.
It will be easier to target the nape if you first destroy the Titan's arms so that it cannot attack, or its legs so that it is unable to move.

Defensive Parts

For Titans with defensive parts, you will be unable to effectively attack their nape until you first destroy the defensive parts. Be sure to target them first.

*Titans with defensive parts will have an icon indicating that their nape cannot be attacked.

When in Trouble

Escaping a Titan's Grasp

Rapidly press if you are caught by a Titan. You can escape its grasp if the Strike Meter reaches 0 before the Feeding Meter does.
*If you fail, you will be eaten by the Titan and the battle will be lost.

Near-Death State

If you are grabbed by a Titan and suffer heavy damage, you will enter a near-death state. Being in a near-death state makes it harder to fight the battle, since your movement speed is reduced, and you face various other disadvantages. You can recover from a near-death state by avoiding damage for a set period of time, or by using restorative items.

Focus Time

If you are in a near-death state and about to take additional damage from a Titan, you will enter a state known as Focus Time. During this enhanced state, your surroundings will move as if in slow motion until the Focus Meter is depleted. Use this opportunity to use a Boost Dash to escape from the Titan before the meter is empty.
*There is a limit to how many times you can activate Focus Time. The limit will be reset when you recover from the near-death state.

Battle Flow

Your objective during battle is to achieve the victory conditions. You can confirm the victory conditions on the information screen.

Completing Missions and Side-Missions

Complete the missions and side-missions that arise during battle to move a step closer to victory.
*You will fail some missions or side-missions if you cannot complete them within a certain amount of time.


Missions are indicated by a red smoke signal fired into the sky. They are essential to winning the battle; failing to complete them will lead to your defeat.


Side-missions are indicated by a green smoke signal fired into the sky. Completing them can provide you with various benefits during the battle, such as receiving items from your allies, or having them join you as a team member. Additionally, the Decisive Battle Signal Meter will fill faster.

Gaining New Team Members

Certain soldiers may join you as team members (up to a maximum of four) if you approach them and press , or if you assist them by completing side-missions. Team members act according to the objective set for the team.

Resupplying Gas, Blades, and More

Press near a Logistician to obtain items. You may also come across soldiers on the battlefield that have been defeated by the Titans. Approach them and press to pick up any items they have on them.

Decisive Battle Signal

The Decisive Battle Signal Meter will gradually fill as you perform actions such as defeating Titans or completing side-missions.
When the Decisive Battle Signal Meter is full, press to fire a Decisive Battle Signal. For a limited time, your abilities will be powered-up and your Gas Meter and your blade's Durability will not be depleted. Additionally, any nearby allies will come to fight by your side.

Battle Outcome

The battle will end once you have completed the necessary missions and achieved the victory conditions.
You will be given an evaluation of your performance after the battle is over. Your evaluation will change depending on the number of missions accomplished, how many Titans you have slain, and the amount of time remaining in the battle. The amount of rewards such as Experience and funds that you receive will differ depending on your evaluation. Once your Experience reaches a certain level, your Regiment Skill and Soldier Skill will increase. As your Regiment Skill rises, you will be able to develop new equipment at the Camp. As your Soldier Skill rises, you will be able to learn new Skills.

Defeat / Retry

You will lose the battle if you are eaten by a Titan or if you meet the defeat conditions for the battle.
Even if you are defeated, you can retry the battle from the previous checkpoint.
*You may lose the battle when attacked by certain Titans, even if you are not eaten.
*Checkpoints are automatically set when you complete certain tasks, such as arriving at the location of a smoke signal.
