Basically, anti-cheater measures Apex Legends are based on three concrete actions: hire more employees to handle manual cheater account suspensions, develop “more tools” that automatically detect and stop DDOS attacks, and finally investigate faster ways to detect and remove cheats from the game .
With this, the company wants to lower the rate of cheating players in Apex Legends, although it is not the only initiative that is being carried out for this purpose: 700 player accounts were suspended in March what had they used cheats in the game ever, according to Conor Ford, Security Analyst at Respawn Entertainment, while this same month it was detected and bane 31 people who were abusing security breaches to carry out DDOS attacks.
