Respawn Entertainment has no doubt done a fantastic job with Apex Legends, their free-to-play battle royale title set in the Titanfall universe. Respawn revealed a few days ago that there is a lot more coming to the game and as most of you know by now, the game has been a tremendous success. Now, Respawn has announced that they have already banned over 16,000 Apex Legends cheaters.
For a competitive multiplayer game to really shine, it should not only be great like Apex Legends clearly is, but it should also offer a fair playing field. The best way to achieve this is, of course, to clamp down on cheaters hard and fast. Respawn has made their stance on Apex Legends cheaters very clear, as they have already identified and banned over 16,000 of them.
In a post on Reddit, the Apex Legends Community Manager revealed this information, stating that:
As of today over 16,000 cheaters have been identified and banned from the game. Cheaters suck.
To help Respawn ban even more cheaters, players are asked to try and capture evidence of cheating if they run into someone they suspect of cheating. If you do run into a suspected cheater, you can let Respawn know via this link.
Even if you don’t manage to capture evidence, you can still let Respawn know and they will look into it, as the Apex Legends Community Manager explains that:
Even if you don’t get proof, get their ID and flag it and we can investigate the account. We have heard your feedback about a report feature in the game. I’ll just say that’s a very good idea 🙂
Have you encountered Apex Legends cheaters and what do you think about the large number of cheaters Respawn has banned so far? Let us know in the comment section below.
