Finding Titans in?Anthem can be a game of chance, but it doesn’t have to be. Luckily, there are certain missions where you fight one (sometimes even three!) and locations that you can visit in Freeplay where your chance of spotting a Titan is far greater.

These giant enemies are hard to miss once they spawn, as they’ll start attacking the moment you’re in range, so it’s best to have a strategy prepared. Even with their large size, you’d be surprised how hard they are to find if you don’t know where to look.
Where to find Titans in Anthem
There are a few different activities that require taking down Titans, one of which includes crafting the Dawn Shield. Without a bit of direction though, simply locating them can be a pain — but we’re here to help.
If you’re not playing a mission that involves killing a Titan, the quickest way to find them is in Freeplay. There are a number of different types of Titans scattered across the map. The first batch of Titans was tied to the “There Be Giants” event that ran during Anthem‘s launch weekend in 2019, but we were still able to locate them well after the event ended. Below are the locations on the map, as well as what the area looks like.
Valley of Tarsis
This first Titan is the easiest to find, and there are advantageous positions for you to fight it from if it does spawn here. As soon as you are out of Fort Tarsis and in Freeplay, head directly east to the Valley of Tarsis. Once you’ve reached the Valley of Tarsis, look for a tall rock pillar. The Titan will be located just beside it. Be warned, however, that the Titan can still attack you with certain abilities if you stand on the pillar.
This next Titan can be found in the Eastern Reach section of the map, which is fairly easy to locate. Once you’ve searched the Valley of Tarsis region, simply fly east and around any mountains or obstacles until you reach the location marked above. During the “There Be Giants” event, this Titan was called a Havoc Titan, but the one players now encounter is a standard Ancient Ash Titan.
Great Falls Canyon
If you haven’t found anything in the Eastern Reach or Valley of Tarsis, you can try heading farther north on the map until you reach Great Falls Canyon. Here, there are mushroom-shaped structures that you can stand on as you search, and to protect yourself from incoming fire. The location is also right by a body of water, if you need to avoid detection or cool off your thrusters in a hurry.
Monument Watch can be a bit tricky if you’re visiting the Titan locations in order. Fly to the area directly southeast of it near the Emerald Abyss and you should spot a large lake. Look up at the mountain nearby and you’ll find a portal that will shoot you into the Monument Watch area. From there, head north until you see large, elevated circular platforms. This is where you can find the Titan if it has spawned.
Missions with titans
There are many ways to obtain Corium that we will clue you in on. You can get Corium independently from Titans and without having to access Freeplay, all while moving ahead through the main story.
When you reach the “Crafting the Dawn Shield” part of the storyline, you’ll have the choice between talking to Dax or talking to Matthias to move forward. We chose Dax and completed her missions first, but Matthias will still be available afterward. Go to Fort Tarsis to talk to Matthias. He will ask you to complete his contract and will then give you a series of quests. During these missions, you’ll fight Escari and Titans to obtain Corium as a reward.
By killing Titans and Escari, you can finally claim Corium as the trophy. As you vanquish your enemies, you will see Corium fall from thin air for the taking. This amount of Corium should suffice to take you to the next step in the story. These missions should only soak up about an hour of time, and most of the fights will be easier with the aid of other players. You can obtain the same rewards by defeating the Escari enemy as you would fighting a more powerful Titan.
