Respawn Entertainment has stated that Titans within will not be able to shoot through walls in their upcoming back Titanfall.
Developers stated that there would be “No shooting through walls for this title. It’d take a fair bit of design work to do otherwise, especially with the power of the Titan weapons. From a realistic standpoint you would expect them to be the most effective at penetrating walls, but that would just make life suck for Pilots. Besides, there are other ways to root out campers.” Pilots have the advantage of movement speed and mobility within the game via free running and jet-packs, however this may give them too much of an advantage. They also stated that, “Another title having a feature is not the bar by which we justify features”. “While I’m acutely aware of the benefits of bullet penetration in the tactical shooter genre, with the way this game plays I’m not sure what sort of design space it would really open up. It’s certainly not a feature I find myself missing and I don’t even think it qualifies as “something we would definitely have done if we had the time”. No doubt we’ll evaluate it further depending on our next project, but it’s definitely not a no brainer.”
