Apex Legends pro dizzy baffled by aimbotter with over 3000 kills

With the rise in popularity of Apex Legends, there has also been a rise in the appearance of hackers and it appears as one player has racked up an insane amount of kills while using an aimbot.

Respawn Entertainment now has over 50 million players jumping into Apex Legends, while also playing host to countless hackers due to a lack of appropriate anti-cheat measures.

During a match on his tream, NRG pro Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows was taken out by a pinpoint barrage from a player using a M600 Spitfire. But after further inspection, both dizzy and his teammate Lucas ‘Mendokusaii’ Håkanssonhas were left speechless from the blatant use of hacks from the enemy player.

Seems like some players have been getting far from implementing hacks.

The player in question is called ‘SuperSmashSis,’ and touted over 3300 kills with Gibraltar in about 450 games.

Through dizzy’s stream, the player can be seen tracking their opponents through rocks, buildings, and Thermite Grenades, exhibiting a clear example of aimbot programs.

After the opponent reveals themselves, SuperSmashSis immediately lands shot after shot to their recently discovered foe. While other instances seem to show the player prefire objects directly in front of them, before strafing and hitting shots from a huge distance.

Meanwhile, Mendo seemed to take every engagement with increasing skepticism and hilarious banter.

“I said so many times that dizzy or shroud were the best players in Apex,” Mendo said. “But this guy? I’m sorry dizzy, I’m sorry man. [I’m dethroning you]. He shoots them through walls.”

Apex Legends’ growth isn’t showing signs of slowing down. But with an influx of cheaters in recent weeks, Respawn Entertainment might want to implement a fix before it gets further out of hand.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
