Developers over at Respawn Entertainment have promised to improve anti-cheating efforts as they roll out another ban wave in Apex Legends. This comes as a counter to hackers that have been ruining matches in Season 8.
This ban wave, rolled out on Feb. 23, was confirmed by Respawn's Head of Security, Conor Ford, where over 600 cheaters were ousted from servers. This was announced on his twitter account, Hideouts. However, he is not the only one responsible for banning players from Apex Legends as there are also automated systems in place to identify hackers.
Apex Legends Ban Wave Removes 652 Cheaters
This ban wave comes in as there has been a rise in hackers on Asian servers. Hideouts responded to this issue as well, saying that they will be dedicated to clearing up these servers for players. Confirmation also came via twitter of further plans to keep the game as cheat-free as possible.
While no plan has yet been announced by Respawn, it certainly seems like they are on top of things. This push on chasing down hackers seems only to be the first of a new series of measures Respawn are willing to put in to make Apex Legends better for everyone.
