Titanfall Massive Engine Exploit Discovered: Players Can Run Like Roadrunners

"Titanfall players are left wondering what gave one player the baffling ability to outrun everyone else." (PC, TitanFall)

It looked like he was catching up in the end. But like always in any game...we have glitchers. Hope they patch it soon.

Has anyone else seen that meme that was floating around that said something like "A roadrunner can run 18mph a Coyote can run 35 mph, I've been lied to all my life"

Prosthetic Legs is a Burn Card appearing in Titanfall. It increases the Pilot's movement speed?

That doesn't apply to titans though. There are definitely hackers. I played a guy on Xbox one who was using a strider titan. He took damage to the point he was almost destroyed, then no damage after that. Was on fire the whole time, while taking hits from pilot anti titan weapons and other titans, still nothing. Cheaters have to ruin all the good online games.

Prosthetic legs gives your pilot 50 per cent boost in speed. The video is only showing a pilot outrunning other pilots. Combine that with a good internet connection a player would be lighting fast.

I noticed this with Gears of War players with better internet connections would go out of spawn at a faster rate than everyone else.

Cheating is not happening on x box 1 there is no evidence for it. Respawn has noticed cheating on PC though and are issuing bans. Its virtually impossible to cheat on servers.

PC is more open to cheating because you can meddle with the system files, you can't do that on x box 1

It would be pretty hilarious is "fast internet" literally meant you could move faster in online games, but that's not really how it works...

KNWS, I have to disagree with you about Xbox One. There have been times where I would shoot a pilot literally until I ran out of bullets and he wouldn't die. Then he would kill me with one or two shots. I also thought it was a connection issue so I watched the killcam. His POV showed me shooting him and a totally red screen the whole time I was shooting him. If that isn't a hack, then it's bad programming. We both were using the same guns.

Oh ya? How exactly are they performing these hacks on a still secure console? I'm pretty sure the x1 can not run unsigned code.

Same dude.. Usually one bar laggers.

Titans getting down to a sliver of health then takes no further damage.. Or players flat out invisible (not cloaked, in your face shooting invisible)

Nothing new.. And brad, they are exploits, bugs. Not hacks in the sense you are thinking of.. (As I'm speaking about x1.. All PC games are hacked so its no debate or surprise)

Ive come across 2 people whose titans i couldnt lock onto with the archer.

Adrenaline Rush is a burn card where you are contantly stimmed. Maybe that was it

For those who have encountered it, any news of their anti-cheating system being all it's cracked up to be on addressing this particular exploit?

Nigeria hasn't got **** on Kenya in the runner department.

Remind me of COD exploits.

this is on of the reasons why I'm not a big fan of pc gaming. way too easy to cheat
Dev_Nights  +   111d ago
I would like to clarify something. There were no burn cards used. I was there during some of the recordings and the person that was moving fast was in mumble with us at the same time. This affect stayed with him even post death and in multiple matches.

The next day he logged on and the effect was reverse. He ran at the same speed as someone crouched and he stimmed at the same speed as someone walking. If you were hacking, why would you intentionally limit yourself?

Also, those saying burn cards I'm afraid prost legs and perma stim don't affect titans as far as I am aware.

Finally, we another person we know also is suffering from the same effects. Again, we are not 100% sure what is causing it, but we have a few ideas that we are trying out.
