I've recently picked up a copy of BF2142 and I've played a few games online. I've learnt a lot by watching the other people play but one thing still alludes me. When the shield on an enemy titan fails and there is a mad rush to knock out it's reactor. I don't seem to have the equipment to knock out the shields and the subsequent control panels behind them on my own. I have seen other players (with upgraded classes?) use remote detonators, but I don't have these in any of my classes.
Is there any way for a new character to do a titan assault without the extra gear?
