Titanfall 2 Ending Explained
(Last Updated On: October 30, 2016)

Now that it’s out for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, a lot of gamers have been getting in time with Respawn Entertainment’s first-person mech-shooter. Titanfall 2 centers around the intergalactic conflict between the Militia and the IMC. The IMC is known for hiring in ruthless mercenaries to do their dirty work, and the Militia are usually barely scraping by some fights with just the skin of their teeth. For players wondering what the campaign is about and how it starts and ends, and what’s happening in that final ending sequence, this guide just might help you out.

The game starts with rifleman Jack Cooper getting training from Captain Lastimosa, a veteran who had been riding and commanding Titan BT-7274. Cooper isn’t supposed to be training as a pilot, but Lastimosa does so anyway due to how quickly pilots die in the field and how in need they are of more competent fighters on the ground.

Before Cooper can complete his training as a pilot, however, Lastimosa and the rest of the squad are called into battle, forcing Cooper to drop down onto the planet Typhon where they engage IMC forces. The IMC, however, manages to complete slaughter the Militia and even though Lastimosa is more than adequate in a Titan, multiple mercenary Titans manage to surround and damage BT-7274, incapacitating the Titan and basically killing Lastimosa.

Before dying, however, Lastimosa gives over authorization and pilot command to Jack Cooper, which allows BT to establish a neural link with the rifleman.

After repairing BT, the duo make their way through Typhon, helping some other militiamen along the way and defeating some of the mercenaries hired by the IMC to secure the planet Typhon and a rare and powerful device known as the Ark.

Titanfall 2

BT-7274 convinces Cooper to finish the original mission, which involved meeting up with the squad commander Anderson at an IMC facility. They end up getting waylaid when BT suggests for them to take a shortcut through a valley that ends up seeing BT getting captured and Cooper has to save the Titan from being destroyed by one of the IMC mercenaries named Ash. After Cooper and BT escape from Ash’s death-trap production facility they decide to continue the mission and rendezvous with Anderons.

However, upon reaching the IMC testing facility, Cooper and BT discover that Anderson has died, with half his body stuck through the floor. It turns out he had a wrist device that allowed him to tap into a time rift that occurred at the IMC testing facility where they were utilizing a device called a Fold in order to harness the power of the ARK that could rip a planet out of the very fabric of existence. The Ark was highly unstable and an incident occurred at the facility, creating a quantum entanglement where time was no longer stable in the area.

Cooper managed to get a hold of Anderson’s device and travel back and forward through time to discover that the IMC planned on using the Ark to destroy the planet Harmony. After attempting to gather data from the Ark in the time rift, BT and Cooper decide that the Ark is extremely dangerous once they see how destructive it is and what the IMC are planning to use it for. They decide to head to a nearby radio beacon installation to send word to the rest of the Militia fleet about the Ark.

Titanfall 2

Before Cooper and BT can send out the signal, they’re intercepted by another mercenary named Richter who is a sadist. The duo manage to defeat him and get the message out to Commander Sarah Briggs. This results in the Militia sending a fleet down to track down the remaining mercenary group, who they discover has a working Ark in their possession and are attempting to get it into another Fold installation and use it to destroy Harmony.

Briggs accompanies BT-7274 and Cooper as they launch an all-out assault on the IMC in an attempt to recover the Ark. The mercenaries, however, manage to get away and flee toward the Fold installation. The Militia hunts down the mercenary ship but end up getting half their fleet destroyed by one of the top Titans on the mercenary squad named Viper. During the fray, BT and Cooper are separated, leading Cooper and another squad led by Bear to commandeer an IMC flying gunship.

They use the gunship to catch up to the mercenary ship, the Draconis. Another pilot, Baker, manages to get BT to Cooper, and the duo reunite and battle Viper on the front of the gunship. Even though they blast Viper off the front of the ship, as BT preps to throw Cooper onto the Draconis Viper picks both of them up and they begin to fight in the air. The trio land on the Draconis while Cooper rolls near the edge and Viper manages to crush BT and rip off one of his arms. While Viper is ripping off BT’s arm, BT manages to rip off the cockpit hatch to the Viper, exposing the pilot and allowing Cooper to fire off a shot and kill the pilot.

BT and Cooper finally make their way onto the Draconis and battle their way toward the Ark. Cooper places the Ark into BT’s hatch while the Draconis crash lands. Cooper and BT are captured and they threaten to kill Cooper if BT doesn’t open the hatch and hand over the Ark. BT opens the hatch but fires off a salvo and disintegrates a few of the soldiers before Slone impales BT with a gun and tears him apart. Before dying, Cooper grabs BT’s datacore and an emergency kit and heads toward the Fold installation.

Titanfall 2 - Viper

Briggs manages to send down another Titan chassis that Cooper uses to place BT’s old datacore into and the duo storm the Fold. After defeating Slone, they attempt to get the Ark out of the Fold device but the surge disrupts BT’s systems. The leader of the mercenaries is instructed by the IMC’s General Marder to kill BT and Cooper while they’re down, but the mercenary leader says he wasn’t paid to kill them and he already fulfilled his contract in delivering the Ark, and proceeds to leave the planet Typhon.

BT and Cooper recover before the Fold is used to destroy Harmony, and BT fires himself toward the Ark while exploding. Before doing so, BT throws Cooper out of the fold device, and Sarah Briggs brings a dropship down to rescue Cooper as they escape from Typhon. The entire planet cracks in half from the implosion of the Ark and the Fold device.

Cooper is welcomed into the Militia as a Titan pilot, graduating from being a simple rifleman. During the end sequence, however, it’s revealed that Cooper’s helmet – which is sitting on a desk – flickers slightly from the neural connectors, indicating that part of BT may have still been inside his helmet, possibly in result of Cooper and BT being involved in the time rift disruption at the abandoned IMC facility, in addition to directly interacting with the Ark.

The end of Titanfall 2 has many little loose ends that easily sets it up for another potential sequel.

    A good enough synopsis but a terrible, misleading and untrue clickbait title.

    • Ehh, not really a synopsis since it doesn’t really detail the motivations of any of the other characters or their interactions. Most of it just covers the basic plot points to put the ending into context, hence the title.

  • Farshad Barnoos

    Thank you for the article:)

  • Farshad Barnoos

    So much hate everywhere just makes me feel bad. it’s really sad, really really sad.
    from YouTube comment section to big sites like Gamespot and Ign to smaller ones like this people just hate things they play, they read and they watch. and one more thing that i don’t like about people this days is that they do not have respect for anyone or anything. why so much insults? what do you people getting from it? what’s the point?

  • BlindBraille

    I’m flattered you actually took the time to register simply to reply to my comment but really? That name…you didn’t really think that through lol. Smh, little kids brains are hilarious. When you reply to anyone else’s comment your name is just nonsense. Unless they assume you’re a blind Braille -nice job on not getting my name right btw, how’d you screw that up- and that you are sad. Or you may change it later by editing your profile, in which case it will no longer show here and it will have been moot. Or maybe it will. Based on the quality of writing they have here I can’t imagen their website would be much better. Either way, it shows an obscene level of troll commitment to do so, I congratulate you.

    • You mean how you managed to not use a TOR when using your secondary troll account to upvote yourself?


      • Cyan

        I haven’t used this account yet, as I’ve just made it. But if you honestly can’t think of a better defense for your poor writing than accusing two people of being the same person then that should definitely tell you something. Maybe instead of getting all bent out-of shape you should just apologize for your title being click bait, or change it. Also, I had to Google tor, to find out what that was. Some sort of privacy ensuring anonymity software? Look dude, if you know about these things it’s obviously because you’ve used them. And it’s really really sad that you’ve actually used proxy servers to spam webpages with multiple accounts.

        • LOL…. dude, now you’re using your third account to troll? Ahahaha. Must be real bored at work… or your mom unplugged your Xbox One from the router so you just gotta sit in the basement on your flaccid PC setup. LOL


          • BlindBraille

            It was a second account, idk who Goldpenny is Irl but don’t call someone fictional simply because they agree with someone disagreeing with you.

      • AnimFan

        Billy D, that guy is a piece of shit who can’t even write himself, which is why he goes around critisizing others

      • Retributi0n

        HAHAHAHA, that’s too good. What a jackass. I don’t see a single problem with the rant/article other than the fact the ending is not really explained how you think it will be when you click the article, it just says what happened rather than what the writer believes happened to BT and where he is now that there is still some type of connection.. Only thing I ask is that you give your own explanation as to what happened, for example I think BT traveled through time when he collided with the Ark and is still active, so I would have just gone into a little bit of detail about that. Still, the response from some of these idiots is priceless lol.

    • AnimFan

      Bro I’m logging in just to say… Shut the actual fuck up, darn what happened to you that day that made you so salty holy crap child. Don’t go wasting your time writing 15 paragraphs insulting people over the smallest mistakeso, be like me and write shorter paragraphs about BIG mistakes 😉

      • AnimFan

        Just so there isn’t any grammar nazis I meant mistakes* that first time

      • BlindBraille

        “bro” I don’t care why you’re logging in lol. Just because you think I made a second account to troll you doesn’t mean you get to abuse and irritate people under the same premise. The article was click bait, the idiot who wrote it called a synopsis of the story “ending explained” now for whatever reason you’re so adamant about defending other people’s “big mistakes” the fact is you’d do well to just learn how the Internet works, it’s obviously how clueless you are. Nice troll bait however, but in the future you should have an actual point. It’s okay if everyone hates you, you still have my pity, poor kid.

        • E Crash

          How old are you, p**sy? Are you that butt hurt over your own illusions and scenarios in your angry little head? Where’s your website, loser? Ya, you were served. Now wipe your own *ss and get off the teet.

        • AnimFan

          Dude your a fucking moron, I actually am someone else, we could track each others fucking vpn’s if you don’t believe me and we could meet up, maybe have a nice little chat… and is all I was trying to do was support the dude who put a lot of wok into the article. Your dumb Blind Braille ass comes in here critiquing other peoples work just cause you yourself have a little trouble writing. Honestly I feel quite stupid coming back here and re commenting to you, but the fact you actually think there is people out there in the world who would make 15 different emails just to get back at someone is quite depressing. Next time you go into an article trying to insult somone don’t start with naming yourself, Blind Braille, thats the biggest dumb fuck thing I’ve ever heard. You might as well have said something like, homocide is the leading cause of murder… Can’t wait to hear your reply “bro”…

  • Goldpenny’s Graffix

    I guess that’s a valid point. But why title it “tiranfall ending explained” when it’s just a synopsis of the game? Just blatant click bait.

  • Scott Dobbie

    Um I’m not sure what upset blind braille but I really enjoyed the synopsis thank you!

    • Goldpenny’s Graffix

      Really? Lol you’re not sure what upset blindbraille? (It’s one word moron) the title being blatant click bait. That’s a start.

      • bleblock

        The instigating form of your statements suggests you are a lonely little troll. See ya!

  • BlindBraille

    “Titanfall 2 ending explained” and the first line of the 2nd paragraph begins with “the game starts with…” so you have no idea what the word “ending” means I guess? The Internet is worse than the real world because when I come across morons in the real world I can just ignore them. The Internet you actually have to waste time just to tell if the person is a moron. Can you people just begin by saying, “I have no idea what I’m talking about so only continue reading if you want to waste 5-10 minutes of your life?” Please and thank you.

    • No, no it doesn’t [spoiler] the game ends with the militia stopping the imc from blowing up the militia home world of harmony. That’s not a loose ends, that’s AN ending.

      They didn’t show what happened with the General, or the leader of the Mercenaries, or what effects the time anomaly had on Cooper. Those ARE loose ends, unless you’re trolling?

      Please don’t ever write anything ever again, you’re horrible at it.

      Too late.

      Not to mention the fact you plagiarized someone elses “angry video game ” niche with your inane one angry gamer garbage.

      Not sure how you can plagiarize a phrase that doesn’t belong to anyone. Is “One Angry Gamer” some catchphrase somewhere? Is it trademarked by someone? Feel free to point it out.

      Odd criticism by the way.

      I r8 this b8 less than 8.

      • Goldpenny’s Graffix

        Wow, I know this is cliche and the 90s will prolly want their tagline back but dude, seriously, get a life. You just deconstructed some dudes angry rant about an angry rant. You honestly are so butthurt that you need to respond to each trolls comment by categorically responding to each of its points. Or rather the points you perceive since the only thing i got from his comment was actually pretty valid.

        I came here hoping the blinking helmet would be explained instead we get a novel written about the very game we just beat. Lol.
        WE JUST DID ALL THIS were not here for you to recap it! If you were just gonna rehash the very game we just spent the last 8 hour beating then why call it ending explained? Why lie? Just call it a synopsis. Oh wait, then no one who has beaten the game will read it, so it IS click bait.

        Dude you really need to find something more productive to do with your time.it’s very obvious how butthurt you are, you need to buy a hemeroid pillow.

        • seriously, get a life. You just deconstructed some dudes angry rant about an angry rant

          So that makes your rant the deconstruction of a rant that deconstructed a rant. You must be living the high-life, edgelord.

          Dude you really need to find something more productive to do with your time.

          You mean, like how you spent time upvoting your own comments in this thread?


          • Goldpenny’s Graffix

            I always thought it was odd that people called out other people for up voting there own comments. I read through my comment after its posted to edit out any mistakes I may have made (something you’d know about if you were an actual writer) and if I’m satisfied I “like” it. And my reply was just that, a -albeit long winded- reply. Not angry, and not a deconstruction, I didn’t click copy and paste actual portions of a comment and reply to those snippets as if I were having an imaginary conversation with a troll who isn’t there. But yes, I do live on the edge, thank you for noticing. That is in fact my Lazer tag Nick name, edge runner. I thought it up when I was seven so I thought it a little childish to use it as my screen name here, but if you think it still works… regardless, reddit provides all comments with one upvote, that’s YOUR vote because who wouldn’t like their own comment? Besides I can’t see who liked my comments, it may be because I’m just on mobile but using your powers of moderation to glean access to information we don’t have is just petty. I have to assume you up voted your own comment and are now a hypocrite.

            Thanks for taking the time to reply however.

            Should I have used “an” before I wrote “a-albeit long winded- reply” i know the hyphens are supposed to show an interrupting thought but, “an albeit” sounds better than, “a albiet”.

          • AnimFan

            OOOOH damn, Billy you on fire, the only reason I’m supporting billy is because you guys seem like butthurt a holes who can’t write themselves, you can’t blame the guy for defending his work, but you can blame some random online duetches for trying to insult it

    • bleblock

      Triggered, lol. So emotional.

      • Goldpenny’s Graffix

        Given the context I’m pretty sure you don’t know the meaning of the words triggered or emotional. Nice try tho, no need to get so butthurt over a comment tho.

        • bleblock

          Someone’s projecting, LOL

          Nice use of second account to lick your own balls.

          • Goldpenny’s Graffix

            Aww that’s cute that you can’t think of a decent reply so you resort to the always popular, “it’s your second account”. I’m not sure how long blind has been on this website but just because two people agree, doesn’t mean they are the same person. When you grow up you might understand. Also, don’t be an idiot, if you could lick your own balls you totally would.

          • bleblock

            I’m not saying they are the same person. I’m saying nice use of second account. You implied the subject of a “person” ANNNND BAITED AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Retributi0n

            Wasn’t the whole point of the image he posted to show that it had the IP address and they were the same? I mean that’s how I saw it, in which case, yea, fuck off.
