Respawn Says Titanfall Cheaters Will Be “Rooted Out Shortly”
Respawn Entertainment is tracking Titanfall cheaters.
Titanfall launched on PC and Xbox One on March 11th and, for days now, countless players have been throwing themselves into its experience. That said, as often is often the case with PC titles, the Titanfall player base has, unfortunately, come to include gamers with a willingness to cheat. Respawn has, in turn, attempted to assure its more honest players that it’s taking steps to handle the cheaters among them.
“Finding cheaters in Titanfall? So are we,” said the developer in a Tweet. “We’re logging them now and they will be rooted out shortly.” The studio further clarified that it will be focusing its efforts on players “using aimbots and such” and that “normal users won’t have to worry.”
Aimbots are a common cheat program used in many PC first-person shooter gamers to greatly enhance a player’s accuracy. Other reports have indicated that some cheats are also being used to enhance speed and to see enemies through walls. Respawn didn’t indicate whether or not it was also pursuing these. That said, we’ll be watching to see exactly what measures the studio takes to shut down confirmed cheaters.
