Titanfall 2 Player Breaks World Record for Gauntlet Run

This is likely the most insane thing I've ever seen from Titanfall 2.

If you’ve played Titanfall 2, you’re likely familiar with the gauntlet that the game presents you with in its opening moments. This obstacle course is meant to get you familiar with the mechanics of the game and requires you to kill a specific number of enemies while racing your way through it as fast as possible.

Over the years since release, many in the Titanfall 2 community have continued to try and master the gauntlet and get the lowest time as they can in the course. There have been some mighty impressive runs I’ve seen over the years, but this new one shared by user Cash_Mayo is easily the most impressive of the bunch.

Cash_Mayo was somehow, against all logic in the world of Titanfall 2, able to complete the gauntlet in under 12 seconds. Yes, you read that correctly. The official time of the run ended up being 11.7 seconds, which is a new world record for the obstacle course.

Seriously, look at this:

Mayo says that this is now the sixth time they’ve been able to beat their own high score on the course. Initially, the record stood at 14.0 seconds, but over time, they’ve been able to work it down to this latest milestone.

I have no idea how long this course took Cash_Mayo to master, and I’m not really sure I want to know. Personally, I don’t think I’ve even been able to hit under 35 seconds on the gauntlet myself. Props to Mayo for continuing to try to best their own time over and over again. Now, let’s see if you can do it again.

If you’re one of the millions upon millions who haven’t played Titanfall 2 already, you need to rectify that. Go buy it right now on either PS4, Xbox One, or PC. It’s dirt cheap at this point over on Amazon.
