Link 3D Model (external site)
This Titan has the Active Support ability, which allows it to establish a link with an ally and gradually repairs the ally's durability. It is possible to repair multiple allies simultaneously with each additional link increasing the power of the Titan's Defence system. Each activation of the ability repairs 5% of Nodens durability. The nodens can have a total of three abilities at any one time.
The Nodens has a secondary ability called Disposal, which allows it to apply Suppression on a targeted enemy as well as other enemy robots in range of the ability, lowering the damage output of the affected robots is lowered by 50%. The ability also deals 1000 damage to affected robots. The damage output of this ability increases the more you upgrade the Nodens.
The best strategy for the Nodens is to stay alive for as long as possible and support teammates. Due to its hovering nature, the Nodens can glide down to the ground when driven off high ground. Funnily enough, due to this slower glide-to-ground effect, if you are on high enough ground you can time your drop well enough to land directly on top of another enemy, making their target-lock go kaput, similarly to Ao Ming's situation. By using this odd strategy, it is possible to heal your allies without fear that the enemy underneath you will attack you. By doing this efficiently, you can potentially nullfiy the enemy's best fighter and heal and suppress your allies.
Nodens, besides the neat perk that it floats, is extremely useful as a support robot. By floating a safe distance away from the commotion on the battlefield, Nodens can establish links with its allies in order to let them survive in the fight for longer, suppress the enemy's best brawlers and assault robots and also provide heavy covering fire with its quadruple Beta weapon hardpoints. For this role, it is a good idea to mount Cyclones or Cuirassiers due to their extreme potential as support weapons, both able to launch attacks on enemies from up to 600m.
Nodens' two abilities are both based around support, and thus should be used like support abilities. Active Support should be used strategically. Pick allies with extremely low health or who are in brawls and chain to them, and try to make sure you get the most out of the healing YOU get too. By making sure both you and your allies get the most out of Active Support, you can potentially extend all your lifespans for a long time. Try not to get into fights, as you will be a vital asset to your team and thus will be needed for as long as possible.
Another important asset to your team's survival while commanding the Nodens is making use of Disposal as efficiently as possible, and whenever as possible. Try to suppress the enemy the instant your ability is recharged, unless there is a much more valuable target which you think will come out soon. It maximizes the amount you contribute to your team as the enemy will have a suppressed robot half of the time, which allows your team to gain a universal target to focus on for the while. Another important factor is to target the most crowded group in the enemy's ranks, like you would pick targets with a Hellburner. This maximizes the amount of enemies you suppress, severely nullifying the enemy's fighting capabilities for five seconds.

Level is on a scale of 1-50. It is based on the level of each upgrade, not the singular level of Nodens itself.
Defense Points are based on percentage of damage mitigated.
Cost is singular across each upgrade (e.g. The cost to upgrade Hull to Level 10 is the same as the cost to upgrade Engine to Level 10).

- The Nodens has a hull design philosophy similar to that of the Leech.
- The Nodens is the only Hexapedal robot of its class, despite that it doesn't not use its six legs to walk but utilizes an anti-gravity propulsion drive. Therefore, its 6 legs would most likely act as stabilizers.
- Nodens' Active Support has similar visual effects to that of the Leech, but utilizing a green color instead of magenta.
- Some of the videos featuring Nodens show that it floats (literally) on the ground
- During the first few test server sessions when testing out the Nodens, it was able to hover at a fixed height whenever it was moving, thus allowing a Nodens that initially started moving at a higher altitude to stay at that altitude until he stops moving. This gave the illusion that the Nodens was "flying through midair".
