A much requested feature has returned to Apex Legends.


Reddit user trashbag_irl posted a picture of said feature from one of their games. The Apex Legends feature is punishing players for leaving games, and in turn their squads, early.


The feature is nearly essential but very scarce in the battle royale genre.


Apex Legends Players Will be Punished for Leaving Games Early Again


Rage quitting is an unfortunate, yet prevalent issue in video gaming as a whole. The implications it has in battle royale titles can make or break the game's experience.


Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts are taking steps to make the overall gaming experience better in Apex Legends by re-implementing a penalty.


Considering Apex Legends is solely based on a three person queue, losing a team member due to intentional disconnect is a terrible experience. Players hope this penalty cuts down on the leavers in Apex Legends.
