Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter video game. It is developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It is a sequel to 2014’s Titanfall. It can be played on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. In Titanfall 2 players have control over titans, exoskeleton, and pilots who are active and fortified with multiple skills ranging from wall-running to cloaking.
However, the game received some serious acclamation from the players because of its underperformance. And now once again Titanfall 2 community is being troubled by a hacking vulnerability with rumors on Twitter and other social channels of a major security flaw. The rumor was spread across because of a screenshot of a Discord announcement that has been roaming around most of the day.
Several members of the Titanfall 2 community including @DirectXeon report that Titanfall 2 is currently massively compromised.

The bug reportedly permits local code execution from Respawns’ servers, potentially affecting both PCs and consoles with Titanfall 2 installed. Although several community members encouraged the players to uninstall the game until the error is fixed.
Respawn replied on Twitter in response to the screenshot that has been circulating.
“We are aware of reports of a security vulnerability affecting Titanfall 2 and are investigating. We have no other information to share at the moment but will update once we do.”
The rumor of Titanfall 2 continues for months having server-related issues, denial of server attacks, and many other issues. In July, Apex Legends was hacked by a group that supposedly tried to raise awareness of Titanfall’s afflictions but was then blamed by other community members for having concealed motives of their own.
The constant bombardment of wild rumors has led some members of the Titanfall 2 community to treat them with incongruity.
“They all panic over a screenshot of a Discord post claiming the existence of a zero-day multi-platform RCE in a moderately popular game,” wrote a Reddit poster. Despite having all of this chaos because of wild rumors Titanfall 2 has relished renewed attention of late thanks to critical praise, the constant popularity of Apex Legends, and a prolonged run time on Xbox Game Pass.
That was all about the Titanfall 2 hacking vulnerability. We’ll keep updating you as soon as we get any further information but for that keep following Retrology.
