Apex Legends studio bans 355,000 cheating players

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

Respawn Has Banned 355K Apex Legends Cheaters, Working With AMD To Fix PC Crashes

But occasionally it is fun to get a glimpse behind the curtain, and that is exactly what one of the battle royale players did, revealing the hidden pre-game lobby of the Apex Legends map. But that rapidly growing player-base means more than a few cheaters are jumping in as well.

Respawn Entertainment announced that it has banned over 355,000 players on Apex Legends' PC version as of March 8, a month after the game was released.

As of today we've banned over 355K players on PC through Easy-Anti-Cheat.

"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", it said. "We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players", wrote Frechette.

Adding a report feature on PC to report cheaters in game that goes directly to Easy-Anti-Cheat.

That would be wrong. "Then you can start to dream and start trying to improve and get as high as you can". If we did what we should've in the first 15 minutes of the second-half will we score the third goal.


Given that cheats and anti-cheats are an endless arms race where any information could lead to breakthroughs, Respawn are secretive about what exactly they plan to do. However, it won't be too open about its plans because it doesn't "want them to see us coming".

Read the full post on the Apex Legends Reddit. Respawn say it would be prone to abuse, and they "believe the resources needed to build, test, and release it are better spent focused on fixing stability issues so that the feature isn't necessary".

It appears this latest update from Respawn is related only to PC; given the closed nature of consoles, cheating by way of third-party software is generally less common on console than PC, though cheating does still happen on PS4 and Xbox One.

According to the leaked game files discovered by Real Apex Leaks, the Season 1 Pass could feature skins for the title's various characters, unspecified buttons, its own menu, free and paid versions, and more.
