Apex Legends studio bans 355,000 cheating players

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

Respawn said in a Reddit post on March 8 that Apex Legends now relies on Easy Anti-Cheat and that even though "the service works", it's not going to rest on its laurels.

Respawn also said it's aware that people are asking for Apex Legends to allow players to re-connect to a match if they drop out.

Twitter dataminers look to have unearthed a host of unreleased content now in development for Apex Legends: including new weapons like a flamethrower and remote turrets, as well as both hostile and friendly NPCs. "We are working on improvements to combat cheaters", Frechette wrote.

It began by discussing how it is dealing with cheaters and announced that they have banned "over 355K players on PC through Easy-Anti-Cheat". As the player is choosing between which Legend he will be playing as, the game's polished UI freezes.

The files show various complex actions like scaling walls and attacking enemies, which could suggest that Respawn intends to add AI teammates to the game.

"We're going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans", Respawn said. Others have said that they have seen this flash previously before their game loaded, but weren't able to verify it.

While Respawn is working on all these issues and more, one issue it isn't working on at the moment is a reconnect to match feature.

The developers assured that if the server issue can be solved with spending money then would happily do that, but it's not like that.

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. We're just rolling up our sleeves and digging in.
