Respawn Banned More than 355,000 Apex Legends Cheaters

Cheaters are Multiplying Faster than a Catholic Rabbit

Last month, we put out a news post about Apex Legends moderators banning a whopping 16,000 cheaters in its first two weeks of activity. That seemed like a lot. Yesterday, Respawn announced that they had put down over 355,000 Apex Legends cheaters. That’s more than 20 times the amount of cheaters than last month. February’s ban hammer was like Mjölnir. This month’s is like Stormbreaker. This announcement came in the “Respawn Check In”, along with an update into the maintenance and improvements of Apex Legends. Hopefully, cheaters will be able to be taken down easier with these updates.

Apex Legends Cheaters

As far as the “fight against cheaters” goes, Respawn has implemented the Easy-Anti-Cheat feature for PC players to report cheaters. This feature is expected to get even easier to use. Respawn says that there will be an in-game way to report players. They are also beefing up their anti-cheat team, so they will have more eyes more hands swinging more hammers. Respawn says they have more plans that they do not want to reveal yet because “cheaters are crafty and we don’t want them to see us coming.” Looks like they are taking a tactical approach to this.

Respawn is also claiming to be working on the causes of crashing in Apex Legends. A big step in taking care of this will not be coming until Season 1, where a better report system will be implemented. Players have asked about a Reconnect Feature in the cases of players being dropped from a match. Respawn says they “are not currently pursuing this” because cheaters may try to take advantage of it and the resources it would take to implement would be better used in other areas like stability.
