    It is AMAZING that they did NOT have an in game cheat report system from day 1. Cheaters are the no1 threat to the future of PC fps multiplayer games and developers still lag with their anti cheat efforts like they think their game will be spared by cheaters. Look at BFV, no in game cheat report system and ONLY server side anti cheat has now made the game packed with cheaters to the degree that i stop playing it. There is only one real threat to Apex Legends and that is cheaters, it will be the differens if ReSpawn makes a sh!tload of money or not. No player want to invest money in cosmetics if the game is overrun by cheaters, how can this be hard to understand.

    16k is a very small number...

    16K compared to the number of players is small, but 16K people banned in a few weeks, is good going.

    I doubt its a case of Respawn or anyone thinking they are immune to cheaters, its likely more to do with they don't know HOW the cheaters are doing to code their cheats, its almost impossible to cover every eventuality. So sometimes they have to wait for cheats to be released so they can then patch them.

    As an example, before Christmas a number of PUBB pro players were banned for cheating and if memory serves, one of these cheats, essentially cast the games mini map to your mobile phone but showed the enemy players positions...how do you anticipate something like that?

    False statement. You can buy 2 legends that are locked from the get go (Mirage & Caustic) with in-game currency. It's a form of pay to win however you want to see it or not.

    Exactly and i think the other 2 mentioned in this post will be part of the Battle Pass so players will buy it and others that might appear will either be part of packs or the same as the 2 we already have. Sp its a Pay to win game already as these 2 already can change the game style a lot, with traps and illusions..

    I agree and for example, Caustic in the last circle can camp a building with his gaz traps and there is no way to beat him if someone who knows how the game works plays him(unless he is alone against a squad). You can destroy the traps but you then make noise and that's the death of you in this particular situation. And Mirage, well....self-explanatory. Anyway buying characters is "pay to win" since they have abilities that can influence gameplay and these two can significantly.

    Good on them. There's nothing worse than being taken out by a cheater, especially in the end-game. How are cheats created so quickly? Is there aimbot software that can be applied to similar games?
