Apex Legends is attacked by hackers trying to “save Titanfall”



Many Apex Legends players are currently struggling to play, as the game is under attack by pirates who seek to “save Titanfall” from, er, pirates. Anyone affected by the hack will receive constant messages redirecting them to the hacker website and will not be able to queue for any game mode.

The Apex Legends hack appears about a “new game mode” which is just a link to a “Save Titanfall” website, along with the note “TF1 is under attack, just like Apex”. Players who are able to complete a round receive an “important message” to the site, and many report that all of their playlist queue options are locked.

Apex Legends News on Twitter reports that the hacking is primarily on the PC, although some Xbox gamers have apparently reported seeing the message in-game as well. Hackers are angry at the recent DDoS attacks on Titanfall games – although the website says that piracy has been going on for three years and qualifies the games as “unplayable”.

Respawn promised in May that it was “investigating” the attacks on the Titanfall games, with Garza community coordinator adding, “We are working on a solution, but it will take time.” The other players are more upset about DDoS attacks, hackers and similar cheaters affecting Apex Legends itself, causing the familiar “Save Apex Ranked” hashtag.

Presumably Apex Legends was targeted by these hackers today, as it’s both a Sunday and US Independence Day, so there may be no one at Respawn. to solve the problem at this time. For now affected Apex Legends players will have to be patient, and the same goes for Titanfall fans – hopefully all of these games can be sorted out before any further hacks happen.

We have reached out to EA / Respawn for comment and will update this post with any response we receive.
