Next Titanfall update brings new Pilot-only game mode, features and more


Respawn has just announced the sixth game update for Titanfall. This update will bring new game modes, burn card mechanics and more. Titanfall gets better with each update and we think you're going to like what's in store for you with this sixth game update.

New game modes and features:

Pilot Skirmish is the New Featured Game Mode - Pilot Skirmish is an 8v8 mode with no AI and no Titans. Due to the difference in player sizes with the rest of the game modes, Pilot Skirmish will not be among the game modes played when choosing Variety Pack playlist.

Marked For Death is Now its own Permanent Game Mode! - When we first introduced Marked For Death, we were planning to rotate it out for another mode after a couple of weeks, but the enduring popularity of the mode convinced us to bring it on full-time. There will now be a Marked For Death playlist to choose from, along with custom Marked For Death loadouts to unlock.

Pssst...wanna buy a burn card? - Black Market Daily Deals now include the ability to buy individual Burn Cards from a limited, ever shifting stock. These items are in short supply, so prices may vary.

Gambling is for Winners - Roll the Dice is a new ultra-rare Burn Card that gives you the ability to tap into your entire deck from inside a match. It's the Fabergé Egg of burn cards if you will.

Burn Card Auto Fill - Toggle the new Burn Card Auto Fill option in the Burn Card Menu and it will automatically fill empty Burn Card slots for you. Never fight empty-handed again.

Late to the Game - Joining late is no longer penalized. If you join a match that is more than half way over and your team is not winning, a loss will not be counted on your record. If the match is a win for your team, we'll count it as one. We've also added a warning message noting you will receive a loss on your record by leaving a match in progress.

Gameplay changes

  • Titans no longer show up on the minimap when they dash.
  • Atlas and Stryder melee damage values have been switched to mirror their original design intent. The Titan melee damage order is now: Stryder, Atlas, Ogre from least to most. This is also consistent with the hierarchy of damage for the Big Punch mod.
  • To stem the influx of Burn Cards at higher levels, the Bonus XP-to-Credits conversion rate for max level players has been adjusted.
  • As part of the pan-galactic stimulus package, credits for selling rare Burn Cards have been increased from 200 to 400.

There are also numerous bug fixes coming to all platforms. Here are the Xbox One specific bug fixes:

  • Fixed issue where a user couldn't sign in to Titanfall if there is a second account on the system which has access to Titanfall DLC content which the first user doesn't.
  • Fixed incorrect leave game dialog behavior when in a party.
  • Connecting a SmartGlass device to the X1 while Titanfall is running should no longer cause a crash.
  • You should no longer be able to get behind walls when rodeoing a Titan that is ejecting on Relic.
  • Titan OS no longer says that you are being attacked by an Enemy Pilot when you are inside an enemy Dome Shield.

We're happy to see Respawn continue to update and improve Titanfall. No exact release date for the changes above has been shared, we just know it's coming out "soon". We'll keep you posted.

Next Titanfall update brings new Pilot-only game mode, features and more


Great, thanks a lot ReSpawn, now I will lose even more sleep at night.

because I cant stop playing.... thanks a lot !!! :o)

Agreed...it was so repetitious and ultimately just not fun, a little too "arcadey" for my taste. My buddy let me know of all these new modes I might just have to give it another go.

How is this game boring compared to something like the CoD franchise?

The strategy in combat is varied so well, and combat is very balanced. Add mechs that aren't overpowered, and this game has been the most refreshing thing since the tired CoD games.

Play the pc version. Problem solved.

I like these new changes. However, i don't get the "use more burn cards" or "tap into your entire deck" option that much. Sure, it would be nice to scroll through your cards or possible even use more than the 3 in one match, but with the duration of most atches i struggle to use even those 3.. Maybe i'm just to good at the game and don't die enough to actually use up all my cards? lol

I love my PS4 but I bought the Titanfall bundle to play the game and eventually Halo. I got tired quickly but the updates make it better every time. I'm glad this game got better because I gave my PS4 to my brother and this is all I play until I buy Sunset Overdrive, Halo, and another PS4.

No one says you can't like the X1, but the PS4 is better. UI is quicker, controller feels sturdy all around unlike the X1 the feels weak on the right grip, PSN gives out better games ( 2 times Live has repeated a game from the previous month), I can use any headset with my PS4, and as much as I like Halo, I'll take Uncharted over anything on the X1.

I don't find the UI that slow on the X1, and it was certainly faster than my PS3. I can't find a compelling reason to go PS4 other than my friends I regularly play with is considering to get it. Does the PS4 have a companion app like XBOX Smartglass? The Kinect is fantastic for voice commands.

Working my way through the Gen5 achievements.  Love the R-101C.  I need to start working on gooser.  Any suggestions?  Man, am I glad they dropped the requirement from 50 to 5.  Props to those that did it at 50.

I hate the Regen Requirements, I'm seriously considering on not playing this game since regen forces you to use crap you hate(plasma rifle)

It's a grind, but I like it better than just continuously "Prestiging." I got more proficient at different weapons because of it, and it feels more like an achievement than not having to do challenges.

Best thing I found for gooser was the chain gun. Even easier now with marked for death because even if they cloak you can still see them.

" better with every update" more like worse. The game crashes constantly, still no stable SLI and now that the map packs are out the player base is fragmented so that I can only find I full lobby in the new maps but never the old

When Titanfall came out, people said it was basically a futuristic COD with mecs. And people should note before saying "AW COPIED TITANFALL!" that the creators of Titanfall used to make COD's. Plus, AW has a real campaign, Titanfall doesn't.

Dude you can say whatever you like. Titan fall did come out first and from everything I hear from people testing the game is that its basically a slow version of a titanless pilot match. I do know they were basically made by the same people. And on the campaign you're absolutely right. TF should of put work in to that

I knew it was only a matter of time before the makers of CoD (Respawn) took the titans out of Titanfall. Not surprised. Now the kids can wallrun and noscope to their hearts content.

Werd! No scoping returns! But their next update should add tumble weeds! That games gonna be desert town when halo comes out. LOL

Best game ever, it's my go to game on the X1. My only gripe is getting kicked of the server while adjusting pilot/titan load outs, or getting your party together.

They need to have a round where it disables the smart pistol! Or, will do away with the smart pistol after a certain rank level.
