Apex Legends Cheaters Being Banned

Apex Legends Cheaters

Respawn Entertainment, the developers behind the free-to-play battle royale game, announced they have banned 16,000 Apex Legends cheaters thus far, since the game’s release only two weeks ago.

“Cheaters suck,” wrote Jay Frechette, Community Manger, on Reddit. “If you run into one, please try and capture the evidence and let us know. Even if you don’t get proof, get the 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.”

In addition, Respawn Entertainment also announced they are currently investigating reports of Apex Legends crashes that have been occurring across all platforms. Respawn Entertainment plans to release a patch next week.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale, set in the same universe as Titanfall, taking place 30 years following the events of Titanfall 2. Players are grouped in squads of three and take on the role of a Legend – Offense, Defense, or Support and Recon. Only one week after its release on February 4, 2019, the game has seen over 25 million downloads.

Apex Legends includes 12 Trophies to unlock, which involve reaching level 50, winning games with each unique Legend, and a few kill-related and miscellaneous trophies. The game does not include a Platinum trophy.
