Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall‘s anti-cheat measures are now being fully enforced and cheaters are being punished for their actions.

As of Friday, March 21 Respawn has started banning any players who are caught cheating by the FairFight system, similar to PunkBuster in Battlefield. Players who are banned can still play the game, but will be placed in “the Wimbledon of aimbot contests,” where they can only play other cheaters.

“Great news: you get to keep playing Titanfall! Less-great news: you only get to play with other cheaters,” the developer explained. “You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck.”

Players who are banned can still play with their non-banned friends, but all members in a party with a cheater will be treated like banned players and can only play in the cheater-filled pool. “When anyone in your party is banned, then everyone in your party will be treated as banned for that play session.

“If you are a non-cheater and you invite a cheater friend into a party, you will be stuck playing against cheaters. If you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population. You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater – you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating.”

Players can contact anticheat@respawn.com if they feel they have been wrongfully banned.
