First Titanfall Patch Nerfs Smart Gun Damage and Fixes AI Controlled Characters

By   /   Mar 22, 2014

Too bad the first Titanfall patch is not one with any content updates; but hey it does show that Respawn Entertainment is really putting itself behind the game’s well being.

The Titanfall patch number one is a server and balancing update that will, most prominently, nerf the damage delivered by Smart Gun among numerous other tweaks to the game’s Xbox One and PC version. Another important change would be the visibility of the Electric Smoke which will now be more prominent when its dealing damage, so that there will be a better warning before hand.

Here are the patch notes that Respawn has shared through their official website:

Balancing adjustments and general changes

  • The damage indicator from Electric Smoke is now much more noticeable
  • Search Drones will now show up in Classic Modes of Angel City
  • Arc grenade/mine effects no longer draw on friendly Pilots and Titans
  • Lowered the point value of defensive actions in Hardpoint mode and CTF.
  • Increased the score limit in Attrition
  • Flag Return points reduced
  • Flag Carrier killed points reduced
  • Explosives detonated by Dead Man’s Trigger are now slightly delayed
  • Explosives detonated by Dead Man’s Trigger now play a warning sound before exploding
  • Slightly decreased the damage of the Smart Pistol when not locked onto a Pilot
  • Slightly decreased the hip-fire accuracy of the Smart Pistol
  • Certain Burn Cards could be exploited to give multiple uses
  • Evac Dropships are now more responsive to Pilots entering them
  • Hacking a Mega Turret will now restore it’s health to full
  • Cluster Missiles damage reduced against Evac Dropships
