Titanfall Will Get Double XP Weekends, New Game Modes Will Be “Free to All”

You might already be able to earn double XP in Titanfall through the use of Burn Cards, but that doesn’t mean Respawn’s shooter won’t get its fair share of double XP weekend events.

On Twitter, studio head Vince Zampella confirmed that events rewarding players with double XP are incoming.

Earlier, we learned that brand new game modes will also be coming to Titanfall in the future. Zampella confirmed today that they will not be a part of paid DLC and will be “free to all”.

As a bit of a side note, Zampella also made it clear that the team will be tweaking the in-game “Gooser” challenge that requires players to kill 50 Pilots in the air after ejecting from their Titan.

Update

Respawn has noted in a blog update that the “Gooser” challenge is being reduced from 50 to 5.

“We went a bit too far with this challenge, especially considering the unique conditions that have to be met in order to have the opportunity to get a kill on an ejecting Pilot,” the team wrote.

“We are aware that some players have already completed the challenge or earned more than the new requirement. We plan to internally note those players so we can recognize their accomplishments in a future game update,” the studio continued.

“The change to the ‘Gooser’ challenge will go into effect in the near future as part of an upcoming patch, so you still have some time to complete the challenge as it currently stands.”

Lastly, Zampella was unable to give an ETA on the launch of private matches, but he reassured followers that they are “coming soon”.

    Read the title as Free For All, and got excited at the possibility of a free for all game type. Free to all is also good though!

    • VEX_VEHIX

      Hey, Free for all may be one of the new game modes? Ahhhh. ;)

      Would be sweet.

      • Woodysgamertag

        there would have to be more people in a map

        • OWCY

          Hasn’t COD been six vs six before?, worked for them.

          • Woodysgamertag

            COD maps are smaller

            • VEX_VEHIX

              Yes, but the use of jetpacks in TF make the maps feel smaller, easier to get from point at to point B. Not to mention all of the AI.

        • VEX_VEHIX

          You don’t think 12 gamers going at it is enough? I’d like to see more also, but 6v6 will do.

  • jon manning

    i just hope that buying the digital deluxe edition wasn’t a waste of money and they have some money worthy plans for the DLC drops.

    • VEX_VEHIX

      I’m sure we’ll be getting some nice DLC.

  • EcHo84

    How about totally customizable controller buttons/layout?…..

    • VEX_VEHIX

      I feel all games should allow this.

    Respawn is quickly becoming my new favorite developer.

  • KillzoneVII

    If they’re planning on lowering Gooser then I’ll stop playing until then, currently at 8/50 kills with it, been working on it the past 2 days. I really wish they would just leave it as it is because it is called a CHALLENGE for a reason, and I feel bad for anyone who has already completed it.

    • OWCY

      2 days to get 8? Jeez, do last Titan standing and use the chain gun. In last Titan standing 5 out of 6 other pilots don’t care bout the ejecting pilot so u shud get over the course of one match at least 3 min

      • KillzoneVII

        Didn’t even think of that, and my biggest problem is lag, and people who use auto-eject. I have been using the chaingun though. I’ve heard some people say they’ve been stuck for 5 days with less than 4 kills, I feel bad for them haha. But like I said I’m not going to get all 50 just for them to lower it to 25 or something.

        • OWCY

          Get at least ten for the achievement. You can tell when one is going to be doomed, so just before he doomed look up, they always go max height, iron site, and look for the two flames of the jet pack, and let rip, the accelerator add on the chain gun is not that good for it, so use extended mag.

          • KillzoneVII

            That’s exactly what I do haha. And I got the achievement last night. I think I originally had 4 total before I hit 5th Gen.

            • OWCY

              I got the pull harder one other day, shot a ejecting guy with a rail gun, least that wasn’t 50 people lol

            • KillzoneVII

              Haven’t managed that one yet, I did however somehow get I Killed Them All last night, twice. First time was an accident (seriously had no idea I had killed all 6) and second time was about an hour later when I purposely went for it, even though I already had the achievement. Haha

            • OWCY

              would you happen to know , does it need to be six min, or if a match only has 3 guys in , can it be only the 3?

            • KillzoneVII

              I have heard it applies to however many are on the other team, be it 3 or 6, but cannot confirm. It was 6 whenever I got the achievement.

            • Kirk Daniel Hendricks

              my brother got the achievement with only 2 pilots on the opposite team, so no it does not have to be all six.

            • Johnny Neat

              That one is going to kill me.

            • KillzoneVII

              I thought so too until to my surprise, I got it by accident. I was playing with a friend so he can vouch for me when I say I started yelling “NO WAY I JUST GOT THAT!” Haha, hopefully you’ll get lucky like I did, also the two times I got it I was in my Titan using the chaingun, might not hurt to try that.

            • Johnny Neat

              Will do. Thx!

            • Enochrewt

              Heh, I got Pull Harder last night, and didn’t even know what it was for. I don’t really care about achievements.

              I actually don’t think Gooser is that hard, It’s about 50/50 at this point whether I kill the ejecting pilot as long as I have a chain gun. I think the Sniper rifle is going to be the hard challenges for me.

            • Leon

              The problem with Gooser challenge lies not in shooting. Gooser is impossible to complete if players want to deny you the kill by not ejecting at all. And most people do.

              Now, only newbies eject uncloaked and that’s very rare and beyond player’s control. That’s why they changed it from 50 to 5 and admitted making a mistake.

            • Enochrewt

              Actually I see a ton of people using auto-eject, and that’s usually when I don’t get the kill. I ran into a whole team of Gen 5+ that used it last night. It’s really the best perk for protecting your K/D, which most people want to do.

            • Leon

              I agree. That’s another reason that there are not many opportunities to shoot and complete this challenge.

            • Enochrewt

              Ahh I misread your message. I thought you had said that only newbies use auto eject. You did not.

      • jotunndigital

        The biggest issue is that a lot of players don’t bail anymore if there’s a gen-5′er in the lobby, specifically to spite them.

        • Leon

          Yes, exactly! This challenge can be completely stopped by the opposite team denying kills by not ejecting at all or only auto-eject while being cloaked. That is the weakness of this challenge that it is beyond player control or skill.

          And that what people do, now. After 2 days I have had 2 gooser kills and 3 opportunities.

  • VEX_VEHIX

    I hope private matches are done well. Would love to start some competitive battles.
