Titanfall 2 matchmaking not working on Xbox

Some players are reporting having trouble playing with their friends on the Xbox One. They’d either get sent to separate servers, or put in opposing teams. The only thing you can do if this happens to you, is to keep trying.

The PC version of the game can easily be tweaked to avoid performance issues. If you’re having input lag, FPS drops, stuttering, crashes or anything similar, here’s what you could do:
  • Update your graphics card drivers.
  • If you’re playing in a borderless window, switch to fullscreen.
  • Disable Vsync.
  • Lower the graphical settings (antialiasing, postprocessing options, bloom, etc).

No fullscreen in Titanfall 2 PC

Some people are having problems with running the game fullscreen on PC. Whenever they choose the option, the game boots them back to windowed after a short while.

Wrong resolution in Titanfall 2 PC

Several PC people have complained that the game won’t let them select their native resolution. It just offers them a setting a few steps lower than their preferred one. One thing that helped some of them was switching to windowed mode, then back to fullscreen. Another was restarting the game.

Titanfall 2 Lag

Players across all three platforms are complaining of severe lag. There’s no helping it – the servers are underpowered, there’s too many people trying to play. You’ll just have to wait it out, hoping the devs will work on improving their network infrasatructure.

Titanfall 2 won’t start on PC

A couple of users have complained about not even being able to start the game on PC. They’d double-click the icon, only to have nothing happen.
