Modding in Titanfall and Titanfall 2 is possible by unpacking VPK files (which store game assets) and then modifying the contents before repacking. This can be done for a variety of reasons, though primarily to create new skins and textures for the game.
First and foremost, it is essential that you make a backup of the two vanilla VPK’s that we will be working with. If you replace them and then make a mistake in future you will likely end up having to redownload 2GB of files.
Navigate to your
Origin Games\Titanfall2\vpk folder and find this VPK file:
Copy these file and paste them in an empty folder somewhere else.
You will also need Cra0kalo’s Titanfall VPK Tool, the program which will allow you to open and repack Titanfall VPK files.
Now that these files have been backed up and everything installed, open the VPK Tool and go to
File > Open
Navigate to your
Origin Games\Titanfall2\vpk folder and open the file
At this point, make a folder called “TF2” or something easy for you to identify at the location where you intend to extract the contents of the VPK.
Back in the VPK Tool, click “Extract All” (second from the right on the top bar) and navigate to your newly created folder. Select the folder to extract your files.
After the extraction is complete, open the folder where you extracted your files and delete the “extracted_logs” folder.
Note – You must unpack the files from the game directory, won’t work if you unpack from an other one
Go to this location in your extracted folder
This folder containt the “config” files for the weapons, edit thoose files at your own risk, if you get banned because you edit some important value don’t blame me.
This is the section of the file which defined crosshair on screen.
To change the crosshair you have to change this
ui/crosshair with the one you want. You can find the code for the different crosshair in the game down bellow.
For example change
in the R-97 or CAR file to
ui/crosshair_alternator to get the Alternator crosshair
Is possible to combine multiple crosshair at the same time, for that you need to copy paste Crosshair_1 value and the other value bellow like in this example
You don’t need to copy paste the values from this post, just use the one you have in your file.
Note that is also important to change that value
to the amount of crosshair you would like to use, in this exemple there is 2 crosshair, so the active crosshair count is set to 2.
You can change the base_speard value to change the based size of the crosshair. You can use positive or negative values.

Now that this has been completed, open up the VPK Tool once more and go to
Tools > Repacker. For the first box, browse to the location of the folder where you put all of the extracted Titanfall content and select it. For the second box, select the location where you want your two VPKs to be created. Leave the VPK file name as is, and then click “Build VPK”.
Once the VPK files have been built, navigate to their location. You will find two files named pak000_000.vpk and pack000_dir.vpk.
- Rename pak000_000.vpk to client_mp_common.bsp.pak000_000.vpk
- Rename pak000_dir.vpk to englishclient_mp_common.bsp.pak000_dir.vpk
Place both of the renamed files back into the Origin Games\Titanfall2\vpk directory and then launch the game. You should be able to see your new crosshairs!
