I Know that the Imperial Guard, and by extension the Imperium at large, use the Shadowsword, as well as the Doomhammer and Stormblade, to deal a killing blow to titans. I also know that the Eldar have Scorpions, Lynxes and Cobras, but what do the other factions have in their arsenals to kill titans? I am most interested in the Orks, and I was wondering if they had a titan killer that was not a titan. Any and all help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

A unit of Meganobs with as much support and stratagems as you can find is probably your best bet. A unit with all killsaws, supported by a banner, fighting twice and hitting harder does 80 damage on average.

Outside of that, shoot it with everything that starts with "Kustom-Mega-"

Yea...that's called board control.

Fluff wise Dark Eldar use Ravagers combining their firepower into a mega weapon. Used to have rules in Apoc way back when.

Gauss isn't real answer. You need about 20 shots to cause 1 wound. It might be fluff answer but not in game.

In game sisters of battle use exorcists, multiple meltaweapons(with miracle dices you can at least quarantee high damages) and repentia squads will make mincemeat out of one.

Triumph is also surprisingly good at taking on damaged knight. Though not nearly enough against actual titans. Then again much above mentioned stuff will bounce off from titan. Doomsday ark? Forget it. Doom scythe? Lol. For gauss you are looking at 800 shots vs small titan.

IIRC there's a story somewhere about an Ork who did a bike jump onto the bridge of a titan and destroyed it that way.

In game and in-lore, most factions just use the massed fire of other AT weapons, titans of their own, or boarding actions to destroy Titans.

Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

That would be Wazdakka Gutsmek, removed from the codex because he had no model.

According to the most recent fluff, Waaagh! Wazdakka is directly heading for terra though, so we might be seeing him so as an NPC for a random marine squad leader to defeat.

Zzzzaaaap guns were described from having very devastating effects as well as sometimes not scratching power armor. So if OP is asking for Ork weapons that kill Titans that aren't Titans themselves, I'd say zzaap guns and shock attack guns. If you fire a hundred of these at a Titan 99 won't do anything and the last one kills it instantly

Titan killing weaponry is all well and good, but you know what it can't kill? Mushrooms.

I guess the topic was about what it's used in the lore, not in the game per se

Biggest non-titan weapon I remember the orks using is the braincrusha

https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Braincrusha

I cant remember if it was any good against titans though.

Ooh, and the Soopagun I guess

Back in the day it would have been Tankbustas. You know, the unit where every model had a meltabomb and every model could use it in CC against a vehicle.

It's crazy stupid that they can't do that anymore.
