Respawn Entertainment has revealed that it’s already banned 16,000 players from it’s newly-released battle royale game, Apex Legends.
In a post on Reddit, Respawn community manager Jayfresh_Respawn updated the community on what we can expect in the future from Apex, and the post just happened to mention the huge number of players who’ve been banned.
The post states: “As of today over 16,000 cheaters have been identified and banned from the game. Cheaters suck. If you run into one, please try and capture the evidence and let us know here: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/support/apexlegends/contact/report/
“Even if you don’t get proof, get their ID and flag it and we can investigate the account. We have heard your feedback about a report feature in the game. I’ll just say that’s a very good idea :)”
It’s good to hear that Respawn isn’t messing around when it comes to cheaters!
The post also detailed just how much Apex wants to work with its community, with Jayfresh_Respawn writing: “Your trust is truly important to us. Seriously. We said at launch that we will always strive to be direct, honest, and as transparent as we can with all of you. This is how we’ll be starting to do that:
“We’re going to start doing more regular updates like this moving forward. I’ll be making posts daily starting Tuesday next week. Not all of these will be ground breaking or major news but think of it as our way of checking in each day to address what we can.”

We can also expect official livestreams and even a “couple more things in the works that we’ll talk about more in the near future.”
Sounds exciting! What do you want to see from Apex Legends?
Over 16,000 users have been banned on Apex Legends… It’s a shame users want to cheat
