Respawn is taking action against “Titanfall” cheaters by using FairFight, a non-invasive, customizable anti-cheat engine. FairFight is the same technology used by EA DICE in “Battlefield 4.” Respawn will continue to adjust the algorithm as more players seek out cheating tactics.
“Great news: You get to keep playing Titanfall,” Respawn told cheaters on Tuesday. “Less-great news: You only get to play with other cheaters. You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck.”
If you’re caught cheating, you’ll see this image. If you’re banned, you’re still able to play the first-person shooter, but your punishment will be having to play with other cheaters – kind of like after school detention with dishonest gamers.
"Hopefully, the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck," Respawn said.
And if you’re a banned player and wish to join a party with other players who aren’t banned, the entire party will be regarded as a banned group in that session. Hey, hate the player, not the game.
"If you are a non-cheater and you invite a cheater friend into a party, you will be stuck playing against cheaters. If you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population," Respawn announced. "You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater--you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating."
