I know someone somewhere has probably made a mod guide for this, but I couldn't find one.

 

Titans are awesome. Pumping them manually sucks. Big tanks=big boom, but that can result in shrapnel if not done correctly.

 

So I was wondering if anyone did a mod guide on how to PROPERLY compressor mod a Titan?

Support class: Yes, I'm that machine gunner that straps ten magazines/buckets of HIRs to himself and rocks a highly modded Rapidpistol or a stock Nemesis, usually keeping the other team's heads down so you can pick him off with your overvolted Stryfe. You're welcome.

There are not many that do this because it makes them non legal for most war use- energy used must come from the person wielding.

That said... there are several examples of people reinforcing their tanks with stuff like epoxy putty or fiberglass. I saw a topic somewhere of someone that tested a titan tank to failure but I don't remember what the verdict was.
Personally, I put a low pressure cheap pump and a pressure switch on a titan tank- i have done zero reinforcement and at 35-40 psi it has held up with no issues.

On my compressor powered Titan tanks, I do a few very important things.

  1. Reinforce the tank! Titan tanks can hold higher amounts of pressure than many other, cheaper/smaller tanks, but it does have it's limits when compressored. I follow this guide, and then cover in duct tape for shrapnel control if they still blow.
  2. I also add check valves to my Titans because of the reinforcements I do. This is not needed for compressor Titans, but it is helpful due to air line popping caused by high pressure air tanks. You can alternatively use very thick air tubing.
  3. Do the other obvious things. Plug the stock Titan tank's pressure gauge output (unless needed for some reason), don't use cracked tanks, etc. Common sense is there for a reason.

If you do these 3 things, you will probably be better off than just ramming that compressor up a Titan.

 

Edit: A word.
