    hi there pilots, news about patch


    http://www.respawn.com/harvesttime

    What time is it? “Harvest Time!” This patch will be going live on 11/28! Let’s get right into what’s coming.



    Elite Weapon Warpaints
    The weapons that are getting the warpaint treatment this month are the Flatline, Volt, EPGesus, Alternator, Softball, & the R-101. As always, you may buy these individually at $4.99 USD or as a bundle at $19.99 USD. But like always, the bundle will not last forever and will disappear 12/19.

    Jump Starter Pack

    This content was originally meant for those who bought the Ultimate Edition of Titanfall 2. Since then, we heard lots of feedback that the Jump Starter Pack has been helpful for players so we’ve decided to make it available to everyone to purchase if they want. You’ll be able to access it from the in game store for $6.99 USD and it includes:

    • 500 Credits
    • 10 double XP tokens
    • All Titans unlocked (not Primes)
    • All Pilot Tacticals unlocked
    • Underground R-201 Carbine


    Patch Notes

    Patch notes for this month are small, but it’s a few things that you guys asked for and we agreed with. This month’s patch notes are as follows:

    • All advocate gifts are now purchasable with credits
    • Upcoming featured modes: Nitro Mixtape, Nitro FFA
    • Fixed an issue where cloaked enemies look like they have a mosaic overlay instead of being cloaked when a player is embarked in a titan




    What about some of the changes from the previous patch? What was/is the mindset behind them?

    In the last patch, we had a multitude of changes from Arc Grenades, RSPN 101/201 Weapons, pilot abilities and more. The idea behind these changes was to keep the game fresh by shaking up the meta.

    The most notable change was to Grapple. This has been the most used tactical ability to the point that we felt it was causing players to not give the other tacticals much of a chance. With that, we decided to remove a charge on the Grapple to bring it more inline with the other tacticals. We knew this change would be risky, but we wanted to evaluate if the impact of this change could encourage a more diverse meta versus playing it safe. We are continuing to monitor this change and will provide an update on it next month.

    Now on to the change for the Mozambique and Wingman Elite pistols from secondaries to primaries. We saw a decent pool of players who enjoyed using these as primary weapons and hardly touched the actual primaries. Thus why these specific weapons were chosen. Because they would become primary, they would be under powered compared to the rest so we buffed them to legitimize the users who enjoy this style of play.

    We’ll be continuing to watch player data and feedback so let us know what you think.





    New Community Banners!

    If you’ve been following past FNN’s or our social channels you should know that we have some incredible artists in our community. Last month, our subreddit hosted a fan-art contest asking community to create callsign banners and the Top 8 chosen by Respawn would be put into Titanfall 2. The results were outstanding. We hard a hard time choosing and decided to add two extra to the bunch. Below are the 10 winning pieces that will be available as banners in the Harvest Time patch. Thank you to all that participated!

    yup, that's right, what did they used to say about cars? Oh yeah, "If it don't go, chrome it."
