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. If there is no ally to heal, it can activate the ability on itself, healing 5% of its durability per charge
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. While piloting the Nodens, you are more likely to be targeted by the enemies due to your capability to restore big portions of your allies' durability, as well as being able to suppress groups of enemies. Due to this fact, it is not recommended to brawl with this titan as Nodens is an important asset to the team, and losing it may lead to loss of potential healing, suppression, and damage.
Nodens arguably plays one of the most important support roles in the game due to a variety of reasons. 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 decent damage output with its quadruple Beta weapon hardpoints. For this role, it is a good idea to mount Cyclones or Cuirassiers on the titan, as they allow the Nodens to provide support fire up to a range of 600m, allowing it to fire safely at enemies without receiving too much damage in return.
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. Active Support also heals your target based on a percentage of their maximum health, rather than a set value. This makes it perfect at healing up units with higher HP pools, such as titans. Unless you are out of range of your teammates, or you don't have teammates at all, it is not advised to use Active Support without linking to an ally, as you will miss potential chances to heal your teammates, as well as not receiving the damage resistance from the ability.
Nodens' other ability, Disposal, has a lot of potential if used correctly. In normal cases, it is advised to save the ability until you have a good opportunity to use it, such as when an enemy with high damage potential begins to open fire on your teammates. By doing this efficiently, you can minimize the amount of damage the enemy can do, allowing your team to survive longer. 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. The ability can also be used in situations where you are the one being attacked. This gives you a better chance at fighting back against your attacker(s), as the suppressed enemy unit(s) will take much longer to inflict serious damage to you than before.

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).

- Nodens is named after a Celtic deity associated with healing, the sea, hunting and dogs.
- 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".
- The Nodens is the first levitating (floating) robot in the game, the other being Demeter.
