Over 350K Apex Legends cheaters banned, Respawn working on PC crashes

With 355k Apex Legends Cheaters Banned Already, Apex Legends Devs Say They've Just Begun

It'd be tough to balance them to not be massively over or under-powered if you could just choose to queue with them though, so if they do end up being on your team from the start of a match, it's more likely that they'll fill in for disconnected players.

We will keep you updated on further details should they arise. Obviously, cheating is rife in gaming, and it can be the bane of a gamer's life to spend hours trying to build up to a decent level in a game only to get mercilessly wiped out by someone taking a more unethical approach to playing.

The footage comes from a user on the dedicated Apex Legends Reddit community, who offered some gameplay video pre-game.

However, the Apex Legends community is eagerly awaiting for developer Respawn Entertainment to bring even more content to the game in the form of a Battle Pass that will be starting with Season 1.

"We'll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting [cheaters]", Respawn said.

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. Not only that, but Respawn has begun to scale up its own internal anti-cheat team, while the studio also plans to introduce new reporting functionality for bad behaviour.

We are adding a report feature on PC to report cheaters in game that goes directly to Easy-Anti-Cheat. While this is impressive in and of itself, Frechette also said that it is only the beginning.

In Apex Legends, players play in three-player squads rather than as individuals. "Solutions won't happen right away but we're on it". 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.
