You may Titanfall 2 never was a commercial success, but even today their community continues to show love and incomparable dedication: there is a new world record for The Gauntlet, the level that served as a tutorial for the campaign of the fantastic first person shooter. And it is from the same player who has spent years trying to stay with the top of the world podium.
In 2019, the speedrunner Cash Mayo blew us away completing that level in 11.7 seconds. Although he beat himself again, a couple of weeks ago his time was further improved by user Whatevershoe, who beat The Gauntlet in just 11.2 seconds. Well then: Cash Mayo is back, narrowly recovering the world record: 11.1 seconds. The most curious thing of all is that this time, he did not play with a keyboard and mouse, but with a controller.
The record before this was at 11.2 seconds: Cash Mayo narrowly recovers the podium
The technique used in this play seeks to propel the player with the kinetic energy created by the explosion of the grenades. That entails taking some damage, but not enough to die. This idea of sacrificing health for speed was what inspired the creation of Octane, one of the playable characters in Apex Legends that uses mechanical legs.
From Respawn Entertainment, the director of communications Ryan K. Rigney picks up the feat on Twitter, recognizing the merits of the fan. Interestingly, this took place during the Titanfall Free Weekend event, which came after the biggest spike of activity the game has had on Steam to date. However, there are no clues about a possible TF3 yet.
On the other hand, Apex Legends has just released season 9 of content and, with it, comes a new playable legend. But there are also many winks and references to the Titanfall universe. To the part that corresponds to the wars between the Militia and the IMC of the core games. Although perhaps what transcends most of all this is the 3 vs. 3 players.
