Respawn Will Allow Titanfall Cheaters To Carry On Playing…Against Each Other
No one like cheaters. The sad fact is that no matter what online title you’re playing, there is always bound to be a few thousand special individuals who take pleasure in breaking the game in order to beat you into the ground. Most of the time these players are caught and banned, but Respawn sees that as a mercy.
Instead, Respawn is going to allow cheaters to carry on playing Titanfall. The catch is that they’ll only be paired up with other cheaters.

Respawn has begun rolling out its version of the ban hammer, marking accounts that have cheating activity on them and placing them on a separate “quarantine” server in order for them to see what it’s like playing against hundreds of other cheaters. So imagine a match where everyone playing has an aimbot enabled, or a hack to see through walls. Seems like a much better solution than just an outright ban.
The developer detailed the entire system in a press release yesterday, which was met with a positive reception to say the least.
Q.) So what happens if I get banned?
A.) Great news: you get to keep playing Titanfall! 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.
Q.) If I’m banned, what happens if I make a party with my non-cheater friends?
A.) When anyone in your party is banned, then everyone in your party will be treated as banned for that play session. 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. You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater – you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating.
Personally, I would love if Respawn added a special Spectator mode just to watch these matches and listen in on the voice chats. I’d bet someone would make money off that type of entertainment value.
