Operation Frontier Shield

Operation Frontier Shield is the seventh DLC update available for Titanfall 2. It was announced on July 18th, 2017 and was released on July 25th, 2017.[1] The update will include a new map - the return of Titanfall fan-favourite Rise and a new Live Fire map, Township. However, the largest addition to the game will be the return of the co-op mode Frontier Defense. It will also add new "Elite Warpaints" - Frontier Defense-exclusive Titan camos and skins for Pilot weapons.

NEW MAP: Rise Edit

T2 Rise

Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.

NEW LIVE FIRE MAP: Township Edit

A new modular construction of a residential firefight. Cover is sparse for Pilots bold enough to leave the safety of a few houses. Windows and rooftops decide who controls the map, but dense interiors can always hold surprises.

NEW CONTENT [PURCHASABLE] Edit

TITAN BALANCE ===

General Edit

  • Ogre class Titans now have a baseline of 1 dash with a 10 second cooldown.
  • Turbo Engine will now reduce cool down of Scorch and Legion’s dashes to 5 seconds. It will still behave the same as before for other Titan classes.
  • Overcore now gives 20% core meter.
  • Electric Smoke unlocks at 20% instead of 25%.

Ronin Edit

Scorch Edit

  • Scorch will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.

Legion Edit

  • Legion will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.


Monarch

  • XO-16 base magazine size increased to 40 rounds.

PILOT BALANCE Edit

General Edit

  • Aim Assist settings have been modified for Assault Rifles and SMGs.
  • ARs and SMGs require you to be aiming closer to your target before any ADS assist takes effect.
  • Reduced the overall effectiveness of ADS assist for Assault Rifles.
  • Titan Hunter kit modified to be 10% extra Titan meter from damage instead of 10% Titan Meter on Titan Kill.

Phase Shift Edit

  • Now has just 1 charge, but recharges faster.

SMG’s

  • Medium and long damage significantly reduced.
  • One of the positive changes we saw in the High TTK playlist was the increase of weapon diversity. It is our hope that between the Aim Assist nerf and this SMG nerf, we’ll see weapon diversity increased across all three platforms.

G2A5 Edit

  • Reduced fire rate.

DMR Edit

  • Reduced fire rate: In this particular instance, we felt that the reduced fire rate simply made the gun feel better since the gun stabilizes better between shots.

Flatline

  • Slightly reduced damage at medium range. It still has the best medium range damage of any Assault Rifle.

Archer

  • No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Smart Pistol

  • No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Sidearms Edit

  • High TTK playlist changes for the P2016, Wingman, Wingman Elite, and Mozambique have been brought over to bring their power level down now that all Pilots can carry a secondary weapon.

Melee Edit

  • Lunge time and melee hit frames changed to .3 seconds from .2 seconds. This will help people firing weapons, particularly automatic weapons, get extra shots in before the lunge completes.
  • Melee lunge range reduced.
  • Non-lunge melee attack range increased. This will help with the cases where melee looks like it should hit but doesn’t connect with the target.

GAME MODE ADJUSTMENTS: Edit

  • Various improvements to the UI for Private Match, including increased visibility of text chat on PC.

MISC BUG FIXES Edit

  • Fixed issues with purchasable Nose Arts not showing up correctly on Titans.
  • Spectators in Marked for Death can no longer be marked for death.
  • (Xbox One) Buttons and pod doors in War Games intro sequence now play at the correct volume.
  • Titan Nose Arts flagged as Advocate Gift unlocks may now actually be awarded when opening Advocate Gifts.[2]
