Apex Legends has only been out a few weeks and already more than 355,000 people have been banned on PC for cheating. Apex Legends uses the Easy Anti Cheat Service to find and ban cheaters. Despite these huge numbers Respawn’s community manager Jay Frechette says the war on cheaters is far from over.
Watch the Apex Legends launch trailer below:
He has the following to say on Respawn’s latest Reddit post.
“We’ll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting. We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players.”
“We are working on improvements to combat cheaters and we’re going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans. Cheaters are crafty and we don’t want them to see us coming.”
Respawn naturally wants to keep its anti cheat plans somewhat secret but the post mentioned that they intend to work with anti-cheating experts from both within EA and external experts. They also plan to add an in-game reporting feature so that players can report cheating directly.
