Apex Legends: Over 350 thousand cheaters banned!

Cheaters are a massive problem in the BR genre. Saddly, it is the case for Apex Legends, too. Respawn knows it very well and decided to go on a war against them.

355,000 cheaters got banned

"We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players.” - Apex's community manager Jay Frechette says in his Reddit post. He probably knows it's not gonna be easy, though. Just a simple google search can lead to a lot of results that claim to help you with aiming, wall-hacking and a lot more. Its something everyone that played FPS shooter knows - if the game is free, there are gonna be a lot of cheats and exploits. Of course, we do not encourage you to try and look for them, fair play is always better!

What's Respawn plan for the Apex Legends future?

They couldn't say much to not to help cheaters prepare for the upcoming patches, but we got some insights directly from Jay:

  • We are reaching out and working directly with experts, both within and outside of EA, in this area that we can learn from.
  • Scaling up our anti-cheat team so we have more dedicated resources.
  • We are adding a report feature on PC to report cheaters in game that goes directly to Easy-Anti-Cheat.

We will have to wait for the result, but it's important that Respawn tackles the issue and tries to make Apex Legends a better place.
