    An interesting rumor dropped today on the official Titanfall sub-Reddit that seems fairly credible. The user that posted the thread dropped a few pieces of Titanfall 2 gameplay news & also posted an image that he states features part of the Titanfall 2 box art (left side).

    Here's a rundown of what he stated:
    • Titanfall 2 features a grappling hook. You can use the grappling hook to grab on to your Titan, aid you in free-running, or even pull an enemy out of mid-air.
    • There's a pre-order bonus for a handgun called the Violator
    • Multiplayer maps are much bigger, possibly with an increased player count
    In addition to that rumored leak, Titanfall 2 Mountain Dew themed bottles have emerged & appear to be legit. They feature a double XP bonus for Titanfall 2, plus an exclusive reward. Since the Mountain Dew game fuel typically arrives in October, it seems likely that Titanfall 2 will release in October or November like previously expected.

    What do you think of the rumors? The grappling hook sounds sick, but I hope the pre-order weapon (if true) is just a customized version of one of the weapons already in the game.

    All of this sounds great! Can't wait for the next one! No other game has been as FUN as TF!
    I've played many of them, and its still the BEST!

    I'm imagining snatching some pilot out of the air and slamming him/her into a wall. Or maybe I'll be able to stand above a pilot and use it as a "necktie".:D

    I'd like to be able to attach one end to a titan limb and the other to the scenery! The left arm could cause the aim to go completely off, the right arm disabling the weapon for a time. Or what about using it like the rebels against the AT-ATs? Tripping the titans over :D

    II don't really know if I like the grappling hook's ability to pull pilots out of the air. Imagine running a flag and picking up momentum, just to how some sap sitting at ground level pull you out of the air to kill you.
