After months of fighting against hackers and DDoS attacks, sometimes making the game almost impossible to play, Titanfall 2 gained a second life through a new mode called Polaris This allows players on PCs to set up their own custom servers.
The Northstar mod enables Titanfall 2 players to “use custom scripts and asset hosting on their own Titanfall 2 servers to create custom content, as well as the ability to host common content.” Importantly, it also greatly reduces the risk of weakening attacks on the server. : The same vulnerability exists, but the server itself is actually not of concern.
“If an attacker wants to crash your server, they will have to track the server’s IP address,” SaveTitanfall’s Twitter account explain“Private games that are not on the main server will be untraceable and crash.”
Titanfall 2 custom server has been released, exclusively for PC use. Thanks to BobTheBob and all other contributors for making this possible and accomplishing what Respawn couldn’t do.

Github is not the most friendly distribution platform in the world, but the setup process is Explain here it’s actually really easy:
- Download the latest version from release Page
- Copy all files in the newly downloaded zip folder to your Titanfall folder
- steam -Right click Titanfall 2> open properties> click local file> click browse
- For origin -Click Titanfall 2 in the library> click the gear icon> click game properties
- Launch NorthstarLauncher.exe to start Northstar
Assuming everything went well, you will see the “Thanks for installing Northstar” message and you can continue. Note, however, that since Northstar does not start via Origin, any existing startup parameters will not be preserved — you need to manually add them to ns_startup_args.txt in the Northstar folder.
The response to the mod on the Titanfall subreddit was very positive. It is understandable that console players are disappointed, but PC players who have access to the mod seem to have had a great time so far.
Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that similar modules will appear in the original Titanfall. Phoenix, the operator of SaveTitanfall, explained that Titanfall 2 uses server.dll for single-player activities linked to the Northstar mod, but since the original game has no independent activities or local servers, enabling similar features is much more complicated.
They explained: “Basically, what Respawn did for Titanfall 2’s single player event was to take the server code they used to host the multiplayer server and include it in the regular retail version of the game.” “They just Some modifications have been made to the server binaries for easy use in single player games; most/all of the multiplayer game infrastructure still exists in the local server used for the event.
“For the custom server to be implemented [in Titanfall], The server software must be implemented from scratch, instead of using a server that Respawn has made…It is possible, but very difficult. “
