Apex Legends Hacked With “Save Titanfall” Campaign, Players Getting Locked From Game Modes (Update #4)

apex legends hacked

Following our report earlier this year that Titanfall 1 & 2 servers were hacked by a disgruntled Apex Legends streamer, it seems other people are joining in on bandwagon, though for Respawn’s other game, Apex Legends. Currently, PC players of the hit free-to-play battle royale game are experiencing issues connecting to the game, and even getting messages from individuals about a “Save Titanfall” campaign.

UPDATE (7/13/21): For those checking in here for Apex Legends server issues, we are aware of it! You can check this post to be updated on its status given Apex Legends servers and playlists are running into issues.

Here’s a look of it in action:

Multiple threads have also surfaced on Reddit stating that an in-game pop-up message is telling people to visit a website, with all game modes locked!

Is “Save Titanfall” a scam? from apexlegends

Here’s a look at what players are seeing now on the main playlist screen:

Pretty sure Respawn just got hacked?! from apexlegends

More in-game screenshots (via Joel Winson):

Players are being asked to go to savetitanfall(dot)com (we won’t directly link to it in case there’s some shifty stuff in it that we don’t know about), where the following message is relayed:

Let’s save Titanfall

Titanfall is a beloved franchise by many, and hacker issues have been at rise. The Titanfall community has been begging Respawn to fix this issue for over three years, but to no avail. Today this game is still being sold, while being completely unplayable. It’s time we speak up.

What is this about?

Titanfall 1 is currently unplayable on PC due to hacker(s) using exploits that prevents players from being able to play the game. This issue has been happening for years and Respawn is willingly pretending that they do not know about the situation. To this day, Titanfall 1 is still on sale on the Origin, and more recently Steam, even though it is unplayable. Respawn, the developers, have been contacted about this matter numerous times in many ways. Even when the developers have been directly contacted, as soon as the topic of the Titanfall 1 problem is brought up, they stop replying. Electronic Arts, the parent company of Respawn and publisher for Titanfall 1 are aware of the situation, with countless reports to their client support and forums over the years.

Selling a game that does not work as advertised (not being able to play in this case) without fixing the different issues and ignoring their customers is an act of fraud. It leaves no doubt that Respawn is actively ignoring this subject. Respawn and Electronic Arts have the resources to fix these issues, yet they don’t, knowingly continuing to sell a game that does not work as advertised, and doesn’t work at all. Every year Respawn is celebrating each Titanfall 1 anniversary, thanking customers for their support. Nowhere on the Origin or Steam store listings does it say that the game is unplayable, and from the reviews you can see that many people met the same fate of buying an unplayable game.

EA and Respawn has not acknowledged the hack just yet, but once they do, we’ll update the post.

While this seems to be for a good cause, I can’t say I agree with the method. Sure, this brings attention to Titanfall 1’s poor state, but at the expense of innocent players who just want to play this holiday weekend.

Update: Respawn has acknowledged the hack!

We’ll update the post as it develops.

Update #2: Respawn has still not solved it (though we have a workaround), but have mentioned that they will provide hourly updates unitl it’s sorted out:

Update #3: Respawn has stated that a new server update has been pushed out to fix the matchmaking issues. Not this update rollout is estimated to take hours to reach every server, so please be patient.

Update 4: Respawn Entertainment has stated that matchmaking should be working now, though will keep an eye out for further issues.

      1. Restarting doesn’t always work. I’ve restarted it 6 times and it’s still not working (I’m on ps4)

          1. Pc here and restart didn’t work for me. Sad times.

            Edit: restarting works sometimes

            1. It’s multiple restarts with server changes. Every so often it works. Oddly enough I noticed everyone got a gold item in the last apex pack they opened. Perhaps the attackers upped the rates? That would be nuts if that’s the case.

      1. Needed to happen. What they did to TF1/2 is embarrassing. To this day the attention the pay to cheats in Apex is abysmal at best.

        1. I agree that the games are not in the best form, at all, what with dodgy matchmaking, cheats and broken lobbies! But to hack another game just makes it so… laughable. The cause is gone, and the hypocrisy is high. Go about it in a way that’ll actually promote change, not force Respawn to focus on something else; like sorting out their Apex hack. Some computer whizz who can hack an easy to access server could’ve done so much more, but chose a cheap trick instead.

          1. By all means liar. Name the thing we’re supposed to do to get Titanfall fixed.

            I’m waiting. Lots of high horse sitting losers, not a lot of actual options. I can smell the virtue signaling idiocy from here.

            What’s the matter, did EA lose some money while they continue to sell a game that doesn’t work? Awe, I feel so bad for them. Imagine making this the hill you die on for EA. God forbid a few people didn’t play a free game for a few hours. The humanity!

    1. People who say incel are the incels. I have yet to see this statement proven wrong.

      They attacked a cash cow while EA is committing fraud by selling two broken games, denying it outright and failing to respond to people ask them why it doesn’t work.

      You can live without your dated free to play garbage for one day, champ. It’s ok. They owe you nothing to keep a FREE live service up 365. Quit taking it over the coals.

      1. lol. Ok incel. Go squirt some more tears over your laughingly outdated game.

        1. Do you even know what outdated means? Really. In the context of Respawn, I’m being told something is outdated while Apex Legends is a billion dollar game with decade dated servers and audio. Outdated is the work ethic at Respawn.

          Let the adults come up with the ideas, champ. You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about or arguing for.

    1. You can press “Esc” then click on “Return to main menu”, then join the lobby again.

    2. changed my location on the main screen and i am able to play. i was on the Dallas server changed it to a different one until i found what worked now i am playing 🎉🎉

  1. It’s also on Xbox one as well I can not play and I’m wandering since I have spent money on the battle pass if we are going to get a refund or extended time on it cuz this is a load of BS I can not play my game

    1. I have 2 Heirlooms . Over 30 legendary skins … If I loose this account. I will literally fall apart

      1. Highly unlikely you’ll lose your account. Anything with paid content will be gone over with a fine tooth comb or they’ll have a hell of a legal problem to deal with.

    2. Hacked on Xbox? I guess this teaches Microsoft a lesson that when you tie your ecosystem with PC so closely it’ll eventually suffer the same issues. LMAO

  2. Respawn has clowns hired on their network end of things. What they’re doing with tf1/2 is wrong. Having their cash cow be slapped for a bit is the right move. Online security for respawn games is a joke. Hackers in Apex are still a massive issue. Servers themselves are horrid. They need to do more to protect the players. They haven’t done much at all for many years.

  3. So the solution is to screw over innocent people? Hack EA execs personal computers, not screw people over. My son and I bond over Apex and we can’t play together now. A better solution would be to bring a lawsuit against EA/RESPAWN,

    1. “innocent people”. Jesus. It’s a free to play game, go outside, virgin. I for one fully support a cash cow being dog piled while we bring attention to EA committing literal fraud with TF1/2.

      Why don’t you go on Twitter and cry to Respawn about getting some Apex coins? You make it sound like your gas was stolen in a Walmart parking lot, therefor Walmart is responsible.

      You’ll be OK going outside for one day, kiddo. It’s OK. Big boy take deep breaths.

    2. changed my location on the main screen and i am able to play. i was on the Dallas server changed it to a different one until i found what worked now i am playing 🎉🎉🎉

  4. If you switch your server on the main Home Screen to a server location outside of the US it works just fine. Looks like it only effects American server locations. This worked for me when I switched from st louis server to a Belgium server.

  5. I changed my location on the main screen and i am able to play. i was on the Dallas server changed it to a different one until i found what worked now i am playing 🎉🎉🎉

  6. Apex hacked for PC players? Not surprised.

    This is one of the benefits of console gaming. Less likely to get games hacked on Playstation.
