Numerous hackers and cheaters plague Apex Legends despite Respawn’s best efforts to clean up the game.
Going into the start of Season 1 of Apex Legends there’s still a very noticeable problem with hackers in the game.
In a Reddit post from February, it was confirmed that over 16,000 cheaters have been banned from Apex Legends so far and that number likely grows larger each day as the game gains popularity.
If you’ve been playing since the launch of Apex Legends in February then it’s pretty likely you’ve run into at least one hacker during your playtime.
While there wasn’t anything you could do about it then, you might take pleasure in this clip showing a hacker getting a taste of their own medicine.
This Apex Legends cheater never had a chance against their own hacks.
In the Reddit clip below, uploaded by user RockyGrenade, the hacker eliminates a player by zipping across the map but makes one crucial error after that.
Once the hacker deals the damage to the downed player they go to zoom away but accidentally take a step too far right off the edge of the map and into the water below to their death.
It is a little strange to see a hacker go down like this but who knows, maybe speed hacks take a little while to get used to.
An important thing to note is these speed hackers and other cheaters who get banned from the game are reportedly gone for good.
Recently, there have been hackers who have complained about receiving hardware bans and when they try to make new accounts they still can’t play.
Just remember, if you plan on cheating in Apex Legends you might have to play the ultimate price.
