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 players have got a clever new way to quickly access Crypto’s drone, but it might not be around all that much longer. 

Since Respawn released Apex Legends back in February of 2019, the roster of legends has grown and grown – giving players a tonne of different ways to play the battle royale as they go in search of wins.

With the addition of a new legend each season, players have the chance to rethink things, figure out new strategies, and ultimately learn a whole new set of abilities. 

This can lead to some pretty neat tricks being uncovered. In the case of Crypto, players have always tried to find quick ways to get into his drone. That’s included jumping on top of bins and charge towers, but now, there is a new way to instantly access the tactical ability. However, it might not be along for all the long.

Crypto has become one of Apex Legends’ most popular characters as the seasons have unfolded.

The new way to instantly use the drone was pointed out by Reddit user bricious, who showed that you need to have a holo-spray ready to go for whenever you want to use the drone. 

By tossing out the holo-spray while also quickly tapping the button you use to access the tactical ability, the animation that loads up the drone will be canceled right away and you’ll instantly be able to fly around with the drone. 

Similar to the Octane speed boost glitch seen earlier in Season 6, it’s all about the timing, but it doesn’t look ultra-difficult to perfect either.

Yet, as some other players pointed out, it might not be around for too long given the leg up it gives to Crypto mains by cutting out the initial loading animation.

Some other players, like Redditor SnaxelZ, pointed out that because it needs a holo spray, the tactic is also pretty “pay to win.” However, we’ll just have wait and see as to whether or not Respawn decides to patch it.
