Respawn has banned 355000 in 'ongoing war' against Apex Legends cheaters

The 355,000 players caught cheating on Apex Legends were all using the PC version of the game, the studio behind the game has said. In this powerful simile, cheaters are flies who eat poo. There will also be skins, though it's unclear how many or how they will be obtained.

Respawn announced over the weekend that they've passed 355k bans on PC through the Easy Anti-Cheat software, which certainly qualifies as a big number.

Respawn Entertainment said it meant to be "secretive" about its plans to combat cheating, so as not to forewarn players trying to break the rules. We are working on improvements to combat cheaters and we're going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans.

Respawn say they are focused on removing cheaters and are also working on a new system to stop the practice of players spamming during character select and the drop and then disconnecting shortly after. Beyond that, shhh it's a secret.

Now, with free agency approaching, it seems like the team is back to moving on from Jackson. Jackson finished with 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games last season.

Fortunately, Apex Legends data miner Real Apex Leaks has uncovered a set of game files in the battle royale title that have shed some light on what kind of content the game's community could be seeing in the Season 1 Pass. They could be utilized for different game modes, or they could be there just to act as encouragement or as a hindrance to players. Seeing cheaters taken down a peg when they least expect it?

Solutions won't happen right away but we're on it. They're having AMD visit to help improve stability and performance too. "It says that it has heard the community but it is not now pursuing it because it "opens a lot of risk for players to abuse it", and "[It believes] the resources needed to build, test, and release it are better spent focused on fixing stability issues so that the feature isn't necessary".

I'm told I should include the pun "ban galore" so there you go.
