An Apex Legends cheater was taken down mid-game and removed from the match in just a matter of seconds after being reported by a player they'd eliminated.

The reporting systems can be pretty hit or miss in video games, but when they work the way you want them to, there's really no better feeling.

Having the ability to watch a hacker get banned mid-match thanks to your report is almost as good as the sweet taste of winning the match.

It's always good to get a cheater banned.

This situation played out perfectly in a match of Apex Legends after a cheater quickly mowed down a squad while snapping directly to them and lasering them with shots.

Reddit user SgtKastoR stuck around after being killed to report this player and see how the rest of the match played out. Much to their delight, they were able to capture the moment in a clip when the player suddenly disappeared.

Looks like the report system actually works from r/apexlegends

We've seen situations like this happen in other battle royale titles like Fortnite, but seeing it occur time and time again really doesn't get old.

When the ban hits, you hear the announcer say "Champion Eliminated" which is just icing on the cake, even though the hacker wasn't really the true champ.

Pathfinder players are usually among the kindest in the game, but it turns out that you can't trust all of them.

The hacking situation on PC for Apex Legends has always been an issue but it looks like the reporting system is becoming a lot better as bans like this are becoming more commonplace.

There's obviously still work that needs to be done but it's good to Respawn on the right path.

With the first two weeks of Season 3 nearly in the books, Apex is clearly in a good spot right now with the new map and improved reporting system.
