Apex Legends is slowly approaching its second season and the software still has tens of millions of players An “anti-cheat” campaign that resulted in the banning of no fewer than 770,000 cheaters.

But it’s not over yet! Respawn Entertainment is pulling out the heavy artillery again and announcing that it will soon introduce a measure to combat “piggybacking”, the act of doing nothing at all and letting your comrades sleep peacefully in a corner of the map . and waiting to gain experience without agreeing one iota, as the studio describes in a post on Reddit:

Piggyback means that a player separates himself from the other players on the team (parachuting) to get himself into a good position and climb faster without participating in the game (without shooting, without moving , without weapons to grab, etc.).

A deplorable attitude that has not failed to appear on the Internet for several weeks and is therefore being punished. Respawn plans to temporarily, or at least permanently, ban players who are sometimes completely inactive.

We received feedback from players and conducted internal game data surveys to understand how many games played were affected by this behavior.
After reviewing his data and internal discussion, we have decided that in the future we will introduce temporary bans on free riders, which in extreme cases may lead to a ban. Perm. This change is not immediate, but I wanted to give players a heads up so they can change their behavior.

A fairly aggressive measure that we hope will dampen the enthusiasm of these bad players.

Finally, Respawn also said in its post that it is working on the lag and hitbox issues and improving the sound design, especially the sounds of footsteps. Additionally, PS4 players will see a small fix for the issues some players have been experiencing since update 1.08.

Anyone who has spent the last few months in the middle of the desert or at the bottom of a cave in Antarctica should know that Apex Legends is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
