Respawn Entertainment provided a quick update about player reporting on PS4 and the Battle Pass XP bug in Apex Legends.
When Apex Legends updated to version 1.1, it created some catastrophic problems that resulted in players having their Battle Pass progress wiped and not having access to servers for the majority of the day.
Those problems have since subsided, and Respawn provided another update on two other issues currently plaguing Apex.
The first update concerns PS4 player reporting being temporarily disabled. Respawn says this was done to better comply with how the information is provided to Sony.
All other platforms will remain active with their reporting system, so if you run across a cheater on PC or Xbox One, you are still free to report them.
With recent updates, players are now able to report suspected cheaters in the game itself instead of having to go to the actual website to do so. Respawn has banned countless hackers over the few months the game has been available and ban more and more each day.
In fact, the banning has become so much that the players who have been banned are actually angry about being barred from the game.
The other update addresses the Battle Pass XP boost for the Level 12 badge showing the wrong percentage.
Respawn confirmed this is a bug with the user interface, and even though it shows the wrong percentage, players are still earning the 2.5% XP boost. The UI will be fixed in a future update.
This will be reassuring information to players who thought they weren't getting their full XP as leveling up the Battle Pass is a lengthy process.

"Hey everyone, quick update today on a couple things that I can speak to:
REPORTING ON PS4
We are temporarily turning off player reporting on PS4. We need to do some dev work on it to comply better with how this information is provided to Sony and we’re working with them on the improvements. This is an important feature that we want to bring back and will turn it back on once we’ve done the necessary work.
