NEW MAP: Rise
Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.

NEW LIVE FIRE MAP: Township
A new modular construction of a residential firefight. Cover is sparse for Pilots bold enough to leave the safety of a few houses. Windows and rooftops decide who controls the map, but dense interiors can always hold surprises.

NEW CONTENT [PURCHASABLE]

ELITE WEAPON WARPAINTS: Exclusive to Pilot weapons, these Warpaints grant the Squad Leader bonus: If you or any other player own one of these Warpaints, everyone on your team will be granted bonus XP. The effect doesn't stack, and you don't need to have the warpaint equipped to receive the bonus. Additionally, owners of the Warpaints will have a 10% chance of receiving a double XP token per owned weapon [up to 30%] at the end of every match.


  • G2A5 “MASTERWORK ELITE”
  • ALTERNATOR “FRONTIER PATRIOT ELITE”
  • B3 WINGMAN “AQUA FADE ELITE”
  • ARCHER “PHANTOM ELITE”
  • CAR “CRIMSON FURY ELITE”

This boost will be increased with each team member that also has the warpaint meaning you can earn up to 4x Aegis XP bonus. Warpaint also includes an additional shoulder arm plate with scaling iconography based on hardest Frontier Defense difficulty completed with that titan. The Warpaint also grants a special call sign with scaling iconography based on the hardest Frontier Defense difficulty completed with that titan.



GAME IMPROVEMENTS

  • Added more out of bounds triggers to Complex.
  • New stats page for maps, including tracking of Frontier Defense difficulty levels.
  • Visual improvements for Weapon and Titan stats pages.


TITAN BALANCE

General

  • Ogre class Titans now have a baseline of 1 dash with a 10 second cooldown.
  • Turbo Engine will now reduce cool down of Scorch and Legion’s dashes to 5 seconds. It will still behave the same as before for other Titan classes.
  • Overcore now gives 20% core meter.
  • Electric Smoke unlocks at 20% instead of 25%.


Ronin

  • Sword Block damage reduction reduced by 5%.


Scorch

  • Scorch will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.
  • Increased Firewall’s width.
  • Scorch Kits
  • Wildfire Launcher now increases the direct-hit damage of the Thermite Launcher. It still increases the amount of fire spread.
  • Scorched Earth’s lingering fire lasts longer.
  • Tempered Plating now makes Scorch immune to crits and his own thermite damage.
  • Fixed a bug with Flame Core not igniting Incendiary Traps.


Legion

  • Legion will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.
  • Hidden Compartment: Power Shot has two charges and Power Shot damage is reduced by 15%.


Monarch

  • XO-16 base magazine size increased to 40 rounds.
  • Reduced the strength of the slow effect of Energy Siphon.
  • Slightly reduced effectiveness of Arc Rounds against Vortex Shield and Heat Shield.
  • Multi-Target Missile System no longer locks onto cloaked targets.



PILOT BALANCE

General

  • Aim Assist settings have been modified for Assault Rifles and SMGs.
  • ARs and SMGs require you to be aiming closer to your target before any ADS assist takes effect.
  • Reduced the overall effectiveness of ADS assist for Assault Rifles.
  • Titan Hunter kit modified to be 10% extra Titan meter from damage instead of 10% Titan Meter on Titan Kill.


Phase Shift

  • Now has just 1 charge, but recharges faster.


SMG’s

  • Medium and long damage significantly reduced.
  • One of the positive changes we saw in the High TTK playlist was the increase of weapon diversity. It is our hope that between the Aim Assist nerf and this SMG nerf, we’ll see weapon diversity increased across all three platforms.


G2

  • Reduced fire rate.


DMR

  • Reduced fire rate: In this particular instance, we felt that the reduced fire rate simply made the gun feel better since the gun stabilizes better between shots.


Flatline

  • Slightly reduced damage at medium range. It still has the best medium range damage of any Assault Rifle.


Archer

  • No longer locks onto cloaked targets.


Smart Pistol

  • No longer locks onto cloaked targets.


Sidearms

  • High TTK playlist changes for the P2016, Wingman, Wingman Elite, and Mozambique have been brought over to bring their power level down now that all Pilots can carry a secondary weapon.


Melee

  • Lunge time and melee hit frames changed to .3 seconds from .2 seconds. This will help people firing weapons, particularly automatic weapons, get extra shots in before the lunge completes.
  • Melee lunge range reduced.
  • Non-lunge melee attack range increased. This will help with the cases where melee looks like it should hit but doesn’t connect with the target.


GAME MODE ADJUSTMENTS:

  • Various improvements to the UI for Private Match, including increased visibility of text chat on PC.



MISC BUG FIXES

  • Fixed issues with purchasable Nose Arts not showing up correctly on Titans.
  • Spectators in Marked for Death can no longer be marked for death.
  • (Xbox One) Buttons and pod doors in War Games intro sequence now play at the correct volume.
  • Titan Nose Arts flagged as Advocate Gift unlocks may now actually be awarded when opening Advocate Gifts.

Patch Notes November 1st

Titanfall 2 PC v2.0.0.7 Patch Notes 11.01.2016

Adaptive resolution scaling (requires TSAA enabled) - This feature allows the game to downscale the rendered image to help maintain a consistent framerate. This will be especially helpful for our users running lower spec video cards, allowing them to maintain 60fps more often, as well as those of you running 4K monitors with more midrange GPUs. Adaptive Resolution uses TSAA's resolve step to output to screen, thus the feature is only enabled when TSAA is enabled.

Word of warning: if you run a resolution or target framerate much higher than your machine will be capable of achieving you will be hindering image quality significantly as the Adaptive Resolution feature will be constantly downscaling your output to maintain performance. All systems will be different, so you should try different settings to see what works best for you and your configuration.

Other fixes in this patch. Thanks to all that have reported bugs and helped us identify these issues!

- Stability and GPU performance improvements
- Titan weakspot highlighting respects colorblind settings
- Reduced stuttering and playback issues with voice chat
- Improved speed of allocating Private Match dedicated servers
- Adjusted Recommended settings for lower end GPUs
- Reduced hitching when changing between no antialiasing and TSAA
- Increased performance of streaming textures, reducing stalls and hitches
- Archer and Thunderbolt now go to Aim-Down-Sights when wallhanging (oops!)
- Better Network chatroom moderation tools
- Fixed various grapple gameplay issues
- Fixed Kraber shots going through Bubble Shield
- Fixed certain combinations of weapon mods and menu selection resulting in no weapon model showing in customization menus
- Fixed spawning halfway underground after playing third person animations in Kill Replay
- Fixed tracker lock-on HUD elements not reliably showing up during Kill Replay
- Fixed Titan executions not triggering reliably
- Fixed mantling up stairs
- Fixed incorrect aspect ratio when switching from fullscreen 1920x1080 to windowed 1600x900
- Fixed some rare hardlocks and crashes
- Fixed subtitles being stretched in 21:9 ratios
- Fixed rare condition when accepting Origin game invite with application closed
- Fixed some display issues in Network lobbies
- Fixed disappearing grapple rope with TSAA enabled
- Fixed NVIDIA Surround crash

  • Fix not being allowed to start multiplayer after resuming the game from suspend when the player's profile is not linked to an Origin account.
  • Fixed being able to accept invites to a game that the player is already participating in.
  • General stability improvements.
  • Correctly grab the system voice permissions from Xbox and honor it in game.

PC:

  • Added Adaptive Supersampling. When enabled and running faster than the FPS target, the game will dynamically increase rendering resolution up to 2x the target resolution to improve AA quality. If the maximum supersampled resolution exceeds 16K in either dimension (e.g. when running at Eyefinity/Surround resolutions), this option will be unavailable.
  • Added Very High to the Model Quality tiers.
  • General stability improvements.
  • Added Model Draw Distance to allow pushing draw distances further out.
  • Added description for Triple Buffered in the VSync description text.
  • In an effort to reduce hitches from texture streaming, the "Texture Quality" setting has been renamed to "Texture Streaming Budget" to more accurately reflect the setting's function, and the tiers have been renamed to indicate the VRAM amount needed. A warning has also been added when the game detects that the chosen tier uses more memory than currently detected. The goal is to only use about ~75-80% of the VRAM when the game is running to avoid GPU memory management hitches.
  • Spun D3D texture creates off onto a dedicated thread to avoid driver stalls and added throttling to the number of textures that are made live by the streaming system every frame. The throttling mechanism is simplistic and can be improved, but we want to get this out earlier to see if we're on the right track in reducing texture streaming stutter before investing more engineering effort. If you were previously experiencing stutter, please provide feedback on whether stuttering has noticeably improved after this patch.
  • Adaptive Resolution FPS Target is no longer capped by max monitor refresh rate and instead caps to maximum supported FPS (144).
  • Improve VRAM detection accuracy.
  • Improved SLI/Crossfire compatibility. Players are recommended to not use TSAA when running in multi-GPU mode because TSAA can negatively affect performance scaling.
  • Improved frame rate stutter detection tools.
  • Enabling adaptive resolution while VSync is set to Double Buffered should now reliably force VSync to Triple Buffered.
  • The game now prevents the screensaver/lock screen from coming up due to idling while the game is running.
  • Added additional info to rare startup error "Failed to CreateGameWindow. Resolution Unsupported?" and a speculative fix for it.
  • Fixed adaptive res FPS target incorrectly resetting to 60.
  • Fixed texture streaming being disabled on GPUs with < 2GB of detected VRAM.
  • Fixed the game crashing on startup if a user has AMD GPU drivers installed, but is no longer using an AMD GPU as the primary adapter.
  • Fixed memory leak experienced on Crossfire setups.
  • Fixed various UI scaling issues when running in Eyefinity/Surround ultrawide resolution.
  • Added text clarifying "Invite friends" functionality doesn't work while the Origin overlay is disabled.

A Glitch in the Frontier: The Patch Notes

Community Manager

Hey, here are the patch notes for the update coming later today, April 25th.

 

NEW CONTENT

  • New Map: Glitch
  • New Live Fire Map: Deck
  • New Faction: M.R.V.N.
  • New Execution: Get to the Point [Pulse Blade]: Unlocks after getting 10 Pilot kills with the Pulse Blade. If you have already achieved the 10 kills it will unlock retroactively

New Featured Modes [we’ll be introducing these at different times in the near future]

  • Glitch 24/7: Get a feel for the new map by playing a variety of modes on just the Glitch map
  • Marked for Death: 6v6. One member of each team is Marked as targets and both teams must defend their target while trying to kill the other team’s target. Once one of the marked players are killed, the surviving Mark’s team is rewarded a point. After a few seconds, new Marks are chosen. First team to 10 kills wins.
  • Titan Brawl: Think of this as Team Deathmatch with just Titans. 5v5 mode with Titans only [no ejecting] and respawning. Each kill counts for 1 point and first team to 30 points wins.
  • Iron Last Titan Standing: It's the Last Titan Standing you know and love with a few new rules. 5v5 with no ejecting and no batteries.


NEW FEATURES

The War Games - Patch Notes

Community Manager

MAPS

War Games: Pilots on the Frontier frequently use simulator pods to train, using life-like recreations of historical battles as combat scenarios. War Games highlights the civilian shops, tall buildings for window-to-window fighting, and city streets for Titan combat from the Battle of Angel City, and the large, open tank garage facilities for hand-to-hand Pilot combat from the Battle of Airbase Sierra. The outskirts of the map feature a clean, VR style perfect for Titan duels, while Pilots are often found running along the bright, interconnected wallrunning routes.

Traffic [Live Fire only]: A weathered test site where pilot positioning is pitted against mobility across two busy thoroughfares. Dense cover makes every corner a threat, with room for snipers to hide in the back fields.

EXECUTION

Shadow Boxing [Holo Pilot]: Get 20 kills while Holo Pilot or Holo Pilot Nova is active. Does not track holo pilot kills done retroactively.


FEATURES

3rd weapon slot added for Pilots.

  • All Pilots can now equip a primary, secondary, and anti-titan weapon.
  • The 2nd weapon or 3rd weapon can be either pistol or anti-titan weapon, based on your loadout.

  • Press Y or Triangle to swap to your 2nd weapon.
  • Hold Y or Triangle to swap to your 3rd weapon.

PC Players

  • Use 1,2,3 keybindings to change weapons.

A NOTE ABOUT FURTHER BALANCE

Thank you for all the feedback with last patch’s High TTK experimental mode. There were thousands of comments across multiple communities and we’re still debating the pros and cons of different changes. This upcoming patch, we’ll be running another balance test focused around aim-assist adjustments. Our plan is to combine lessons learned from both tests in DLC 7, so console and controller players please send us your feedback.

In addition to the listed changes, there appear to be some undocumented changes, such as a Stim nerf, a new 30-second timer on Amped Weapons, and stalkers damaging your titan when stepped on.
