A Titanfall 2 speedrunner has reclaimed their throne after having their earlier document overwhelmed final week. Cash Mayo managed to speedrun Titanfall 2’s tutorial stage, an infamously intricate little bit of wallrunning and speed-boosting, in 11.1 seconds, beating Whatevershoe’s document of 11.2 seconds.
Reported first by PC Gamer, Cash Mayo managed the brand new document this previous weekend, narrowly beating Whatevershoe’s current document. Whatevershoe was initially aiming to beat Cash Mayo’s earlier record of 11.7 seconds from 2019, so the room for error has gotten exponentially smaller and smaller because the document was revised.
It’s nuts that, 5 years after the discharge of Titanfall 2, a participant simply broke the world document speedrun time for The Gauntlet throughout our current Free Weekend.
Here’s the clip. Yes, they’re blowing up their very own legs with grenades to achieve pace.

Titanfall 2’s tutorial stage, the Gauntlet, has turn out to be an in-universe trophy of types for Titanfall and Apex Legends followers. Developer Respawn made it a part of the maniac daredevil Octane’s backstory, establishing that Octane set the unique document through the use of a traditional grenade bounce trick, which explains the prosthetic legs.
Titanfall 2 is having one thing of a second (third?) renaissance this previous month. The recreation had a free weekend on Steam, and that was after experiencing a 500% surge in players because of Apex season 9’s Titan-centric theme. Titanfall and Titanfall 2 also recently got the framerate boost treatment on the Xbox Series X and S alongside many different EA video games.
If you like your Respawn shooters firmly within the battle royale style, take a look at all of the (*2*).
