Apex Legends’ New Reporting Feature Isn’t Without Flaw

Apex Legends

As with any online game, the explosion if popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends brought with it not only legitimate players but the dregs of the gaming community: cheaters. While the devs have been quite active in combating cheaters to try and maintain a decent player environment, without the help of fans finding cheaters wouldn’t be as easy or as efficient. The arrival of the season 1 for the title brought with it not only a new legend and the awaited Battle Pass, but the ability for players to report cheating and abuse. Unfortunately, not everybody is a fan — some even saying it’s next-to-useless.

Others thought it was a great addition:

For those that don’t know what the “Report a Player” features targets:


  • Added Report a Player feature for cheating and abuse on PC.
    • Players can now report cheaters they encounter in-game and it’ll be sent directly to Easy Anti-Cheat. You can do this from either the spectate view after dying or when looking at your team’s Banner Cards in the Squad tab.
    • We have lots of other work going on behind the scenes and this remains high priority for us. We won’t be able to share many specifics of what we’re doing but we’ll strive to provide updates on progress for the things we can talk about.
    • Speed hacking: We do currently have anti-speed hacking in Apex Legends, but it’s not being as effective as intended due to a bug that we believe we’ve identified and will be addressing in our next server update. Will provide ETA for it when I have it. Working to get it out ASAP.
  • Added Report a Player for abuse on Consoles
    • You can report players from the spectate view after dying or when looking at your team’s Banner Cards in the Squad tab.

Though any feature can always have areas of improvement, many players feel like there should be more focus on toxicity, dropped matches, and a higher turnover revolving caught cheaters. That being said, Respawn has been incredibly attentive when it comes to making the game better and listening to their players, we’re sure they are taking in all of this feedback with open ears.
