Apex Legends Mobile players say cheaters are rampant, want EA to fix anti-cheat
In the last few years, Battle Royale games have taken the video game industry by storm. Millions of players play numerous titles every day.
But with mobile gaming taking the spotlight, gaming studios have been releasing mobile versions of their games. And the latest to join the trend is EA’s Apex Legends.
After it was released in select countries, Apex Legends Mobile recently opened up for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.
But after its regional launch, Apex Legends Mobile players started complaining (1,2,3,4,5) about in-game cheaters and hackers. Many said they encountered hackers in every other game and that they were rampant and killing everyone.
Some even said they faced the same hacker even after days, wondering if the anti-cheat system is working or not. Here are some reports from Apex Legends Mobile players who are tired of hackers and cheaters.
Hi Apex Legend Mobile developer, Its so excited when i got an email notification that Apex Legends Mobile finally can download thru phone. Actually, i love this game a lots. But not for long until i meet some cheat player and bug such as revive button not pop up and many more. Kindly please fix bug and eliminate player who cheat while gaming. I’m preety sure you can do more than that. Recently, too many player who using third party file or attached file or or hacking or a.k.a cheating in this game.
This game has a serious cheating issue What the hell is going on??, first couple of games today and I’m facing a cheating PC player, 3 of them actually. One was using wall hacks and shooting through a wall and the other two were aim snapping. I get it, it’s a soft launch release and it’s not perfect. But that’s just terrible.
It looks like hackers are using wall hacks, aimbots and no recoil scripts, making it impossible for normal players to push their ranks.
Unfortunately, Apex Legends Mobile developers are yet to comment on the matter, let alone work on a fix. We hope EA takes a look at the state of the game and improves their anti-cheat system as soon as possible.
Rest assured, we will be keeping an eye out on the matter and update this space as and when we come across more information so make sure you stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
