Twitch streamer accused of hacking in Apex Legends now banned

Apex Legends streamer bjerrehusdk has been banned on Twitch, after being accused of “obvious” aimbotting during broadcasts on the platform. 

The gamer and his teammates appeared to brag about the cheating tactics they were using during a livestream on June 4, after viewers started to question just how genuine the insane and long-range eliminations the players picked up were. 

His Twitch channel has since been banned. The reason for such action being taken is still yet to be confirmed, as is the length of the ban, but it could be argued that the evidence does look pretty damning. 

RespawnRespawn Entertainment have banned a lot of Apex Legends players so far for cheating. Has bjerrehusdk just joined the list?

“I can’t give you the name of my hack, sorry guys” the streamer said during the broadcast, before teammates teased that they would soon reveal their hack to other players in the game’s online community. 

Whether or not this triggered the suspension, or removal, of bjerrehusdk’s streaming account remains to be seen. However, hacking in broadcasts is certainly breaking Twitch’s terms of use and, if found guilty, this would have been grounds for a ban. 

Nevertheless, we know now that they won’t be revealing potential hacks on their channel any time soon. The news comes just days after other players on Reddit called for the player to be banned, while others argued that they might be genuine plays. 

Respawn Entertainment have already banned over 350,000 players from their game for cheating and if bjerrehusdk was found guilty of cheating by Twitch, it could be only a matter of time before the developer bans them from the game as well. 

Whether or not that ban has already been sanctioned is unknown at this time, but as updates come in for this story we’ll be the first to let you know of any further developments.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
