Titanfall studio tracking down in-game cheaters

New, 31 comments

Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment is tracking users said to be cheating in the recently released game.

While the studio does not detail its methods in rooting out cheating gamers, a representative took to Twitter to respond to a user asking what the company considers cheating. "Using aimbots and such! Normal users won't have to worry," reads a statement on its official Twitter account.

The studio representative adds that cheating players will be rooted out "shortly."

A number of websites are currently offering aimbots that exploits in-game data including the ability to see players, items, explosives and other objects that users would not typically be able to see. This also includes "Wallhacks" that allow the user to see enemies and friendly players through walls at all times. Aimbots both aim and shoot for the player, while the bot's abilities can be adjusted slightly to appear less suspicious to other players.

Titanfall received a 9 out of 10 from Polygon, in a review that read: "Titanfall is the rare game that feels like it came out on top of the few compromises Respawn has had to make. Sliding the spectacle and holy shit moments of an epic campaign among bold, fast multiplayer that steals unlikely elements, Respawn has made them shine like they belonged there all along."
