Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a hacker in Apex Legends get the justice they deserve, and the moment the banhammer struck was perfectly caught during a live Twitch stream.

Respawn Entertainment has been hit hard with problems surrounding their popular battle royale. From players getting constant “code: leaf” errors to an insane amount of hackers throughout matches, the devs have a lot of work to do to tame their servers.

But not all is without hope as the Apex Legends creators have been working hard to keep cheaters from ever connecting to another game again with their impressive banning spree that’s still going strong.

Respawn EntertainmentRanked matches in Apex Legends has been suffocating to play with hackers on the loose.

What happened?

In a satisfying clip from streamer ‘ShivFPS,’ a hacker and their squad made it down to the final six squads in their Apex match.

Earlier in the stream, Shiv and his team were actually putting up a good performance against multiple squads before coming face-to-face with the cheating team when a firefight broke out in Bunker.

After a short-lived chase, the hackers were able to track and eliminate Shiv and his team. While the streamer was convinced of their hacking ways, he stayed to view “waigai72” so his stream could see for themselves.

As expected, players in that squad were finding players and breaking shields with incredible ease. Then there were the various pinpoint accurate shots from long distances that plainly showed that they were cheating.

Though it didn’t seem like Shiv was ready for what happened next, as the hacker he was spectating was in the middle of a gunfight when he suddenly vanished from the game, transferring viewership to another member in the squad.

The streamer was hyped to see the immediate justice unfold before his eyes as his stream’s audience echoed the same emotion spamming “Justice” and emotes in his Twitch Chat.

Apex Legends are banning players by the thousands

Back in May, Respawn Entertainment revealed a staggering number of players that have been banned for hacking.

While the Apex community still find more cheaters everyday, Respawn had at one point banned 770,000 players found to be hacking in the battle royale.

Playing against cheaters is frustrating, but finding and reporting them could lead to some more epic justice like ShivFPS found in his game.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
