Apex Legends is without a doubt one of the most popular video games currently, especially after the free royal battle shooter hit 50 million players a month after its release. Of course, as with all that has attracted this celebrity, it is not surprising that the game has also attracted the attention of cheaters seeking to gain an unfair advantage over other players.
Last month, developer Respawn Entertainment strongly opposed cheating after the studio banned at least 16,000 players caught in the act. Apex Legends. Now, it seems that Respawn is taking stronger action against cheats, especially on PCs, by removing permanent bans not only for the accounts of the authors, but also for the gaming equipment used to play the game.
In a report published by Daily eSports, several cheat forums revealed that several people had already seen their account and PC banned from playing Apex Legends again. To top it off, once Respawn has detected another account associated with the same PC, the developer must report the secondary account and ban it within 30 minutes. It's reassuring to know that Respawn is proactive in fighting cheats in the game in order to maintain fair and balanced gameplay for all. However, it seems that players are demanding more after a Reddit ticket has launched online tricks several days ago, asking players to ask Respawn to lock the region, China, which would host most cheaters .
Of course, cheating in video games is not a novelty and a long-standing problem, especially for multiplayer online game developers such as Apex Legends. While the permanent material ban may hold back the majority of these notorious players, it is not surprising that some of them are able to find intelligent ways to bypass Respawn's actions. If the ban on equipment proves ineffective in the long run, it's not unlikely that Respawn will be forced to go to court, which explains how Epic Games supports cheats Fortnite.
Apex Legends is now available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
