Apex Legends leak points to powerful upcoming item

This Apex Legends leak might reveal a future plan for Respawn to debut a mobile respawning item that would allow a revive to happen without being at an actual station.

Apex Legends offered an innovative way to revive fallen teammates by collecting their respawn card from their death box, something that we saw Epic Games later on add into their game.

Respawn hasn’t touched the reviving system since Apex launched in February, but this leak seems to suggest that could be changing soon.

Respawn EntertainmentIt sounds like you might be able to drop back into the action at any spot soon.

A leaked sound file makes it sound like a portable respawning system is on the way judging by two quotes.

“Found a portable respawn beacon here,” and “I’m deploying a portable respawn beacon,” are the voice lines which makes it sound like something is certainly on the horizon.

At the time begin this is just a leak so it’s nothing set in stone. As with all leaks, you should take them with a grain of salt.

If this does end up being a real item then it has a chance to be completely game-changing as you’ll be able to bring a teammate back anywhere you want.

There has been no indication this is coming so it’s not something players should worry about until we get official confirmation from the developers.

Unlike Fortnite, Apex Legends hasn’t received major weekly patches so there’s no precedent for something like this to come into the game in the middle of a season.  

Respawn EntertainmentWattson was the major addition of Season 2.

However, it could be something the team is working for in Season 3 or it could just be a recorded voice line for a feature that was later scrapped.

Either way, the information is still a leak and that’s probably all it should be treated as for now.

Apex Legends clamps down on teamers ruining ranked play

Respawn Entertainment have banned top-ranked Apex Legends players on Xbox who were found ‘teaming’ in the competitive playlist, extending the devs’ hard-line approach to cheaters.

Teamers have been prevalent in Apex since the game’s launch. While the war against cheaters has been ongoing, Respawn have shown they’re not afraid to swing the ban hammer once reports start to get out of hand.

For the people who have poured hundreds of hours into the battle royale to reach some of the highest echelons of the Rank ladder, the devs won’t think twice about banning you if you’re caught obstructing Apex’s competitive integrity.

Respawn security team member Conor ‘Hideouts’ Ford has been slamming cheaters of all types with hardware bans, among others, and let over a dozen players know they had their last day on their respective Apex accounts.

Teamers in Apex Legends have been a problem since before Season 1.

“To the 14 Xbox players who were teaming in high-level Ranked, I hope your time off is more fulfilling and well spent than what you were doing in Apex lol,” Hideouts said.

For those unaware, teaming is the simple act of coordinating with people outside of your squad. While there isn’t any third-party software or extra application in use that cheat detection would pick up, it’s still highly against the framework of a battle royale.

People have teamed since the start of the game to complete challenges, unlock prestigious rewards, and secure incredibly easy wins to add to their record.

If there was ever a doubt that teaming with your friends would result in a ban, Hideouts and co. spare no bans if they get a report with evidence to the infraction.

As Season 7 ramps up through its holiday festivities, Respawn have been really keen on cleaning up the game from every kind of cheater under the sun.

Whether you’re trying to be slick and get away with some light cheating or broadcasting your errant ways on Twitch, the Apex devs have a pretty solid record of tracking down people violating the rules.

As long as Apex Legends has cheaters, the devs will continue to be active in community threads and direct Cheater Report channels to sift out the bad actors.
