Apex Legends Has Banned 355,000 PC Cheaters

Apex Legends Has Banned 355,000 PC Cheaters

Apex Legends is gaining cheaters day by day and history is repeating itself.

Most of the data we have so far about the new character comes from leaks that have publicized information discovered in Apex Legends' game files. The leak points to a badge that players can use in-game which gives players some way to show off their newly purchased goods.

Per usual, leaks are not in any way official until confirmed by or implemented by Respawn Entertainment.

They're similarly secretive about what they plan to do about the jerks who gum up games by joining matches, spamming links and ads (often for cheats), then leave once the round actually starts.

As for the frequent crashes Apex Legends still experiences on PC, the developer said that the next patch will address some of the known issues, but not all of them. If this could be fixed by spending money on faster/more servers we would do it, but unfortunately there is no silver bullet on this one. Respawn Entertainment assured in the check-in report that they are looking for a fix to this server issue.

Respawn announced over the weekend that they've passed 355k bans on PC through the Easy Anti-Cheat software, which certainly qualifies as a big number. "We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players", wrote Frechette.

"The service works but the fight against cheaters is an ongoing war that we'll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting", they say.

We are reaching out and working directly with experts, both within and outside of EA, in this area that we can learn from.

Aside from that, the anti-cheat team is going to be scaled up and have more dedicated resources.

The Apex Legends News and Leaks account was even able to uncover some code which revealed the existence of a Night Mode, a fan-requested feature for the game that would make for a most welcome addition, even if it isn't related to the Season 1 Battle Pass.
