Titanfall 2 Tech Test Continues This Weekend With New Changes

The Multiplayer Tech Test for Titanfall 2 will return on August 26 and with it, plenty of changes to the gameplay as well. After taking in the feedback from players in the first Tech Test, Respawn Entertainment has made significant overhauls to the game.

Titanfall 2

A huge blog post over at the game’s site list out the big changes they are making but here’s a quick overview of the patch notes for the changes that are coming:

Time to Kill

- Amped Weapons Boost now unlocks at 80% of the earn meter instead of 50%.
- Charge Rifles now have damage falloff at cross map distances.
- Slightly Increased cloak visibility for other Pilots.

We think the abundance of Amped Weapons is a large contributor to lower time to kill. We’re still adjusting individual weapon balance for ship.

Mobility

- Increased max wall-running speed.
- Increased base wall-running speed and air speed.
- Increased acceleration while jumping off walls.
- Titans dashes recharge 2 seconds faster.

Training is unaffected by these changes, ensuring Gauntlet records will remain valid.

Titan Timer

- Pilots now earn a small amount of Titan meter every 5 seconds.

This value may be undertuned until we can take a pass at how much meter you earn from objectives.

Bounty Hunt

- Score Limit lowered to 5000 from 6000 to increase the amount of games won by score instead of time.
- Banking phases now last 45 seconds instead of a minute.

Technical Fixes

- Fixed some issues with the outer deadzone on PlayStation controllers

We wanted to note and apologize for “Invite Friends” still being broken in this build. We needed to get the patch to certification quickly to ensure gameplay changes could make it in for this weekend, so we couldn’t get to this in time.

If you want a complete look at all the changes, you can head over to Titanfall’s blog post here, which also covers the map design, hub, and more.

Titanfall 2 will release on October 28 on Xbox One, PC, and for the first time, on PlayStation 4. The Multiplayer Tech Test is set to run until August 28.
