Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall and Titanfall 2 have been attacked by hackers over and over in the past few years. These hacks were usually DDoS attacks or Distributed Denial of Service attacks. This results in ping so high as to make the games virtually unplayable. Sometimes, it even makes it impossible for the games’ massive player base to even log in.
Thankfully, a Titanfall player shared a post on Medium where they provided a tutorial showing how to fix the game. The author who goes by the username p0358, explains that they have spent countless hours reverse engineering Titanfall, researching its design, and pinpointing the various potential exploits and flaws with the game’s engine.
“I am publishing this because I am frustrated at how they struggle to fix everything… and because I know they would not manage to find and fix everything from here on their own.” says p0358. The nearly 5000-word tutorial consists of 12 steps to follow in order to protect against future attacks and seems to be directly aimed at Respawn Entertainment.
The gaming community has always been there to point out specific flaws in video games over the years. There are currently several columns, Reddit pages, and communities dedicated to helping other players fix various games. Let’s hope that in the near future, game developers actually listen to their player base.
Titanfall and Titanfall 2 are available on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
