Winning a match on Apex Legends can be tough at the best of times, but when another player is cheating it becomes virtually impossible, as some fans of the battle royale game found out while playing on World’s Edge.

Apex Legends is one of many battle royale games that have taken over the world of gaming, launching back in 2019 to immediate success, with hundreds of thousands of players logging on in hopes of outlasting their opponents and securing a victory, and becoming an Apex Champion.

As with any PC game though, hackers are always trying to find ways to give themselves an unfair advantage over opponents and make things easier, as Reddit user ‘KralRindo’ found out the hard way while playing the game on March 3.

Like any battle royale, movement around the map is key as you try to find enemies to eliminate and make sure you don’t get taken down by the circle, which shrinks the available play area to encourage late-game battles to find who will truly be the last team standing.

One Apex Legends cheater has taken the idea of movement to a crazy new level, zooming around World’s Edge at breakneck speeds never before seen in the game, but of course, using a cheat to make it happen.

In a clip uploaded to the Apex Legends subreddit, user KralLindo was stunned to watch a player run across the map at lightning speed, crossing areas in seconds that would take most players minutes. On top of that, the hack also provided auto-aiming which immediately locked his crosshairs onto an enemy, the ability to heal in incredibly quick time, and even a way to clip through solid objects, while also seeing every enemy’s location.

Unsurprisingly, the player who uploaded it called on developers Respawn Entertainment to “please do something” about the cheaters, saying he was “not having any fun while playing this game” in its current state.

The good news is that the developers are well-known for stamping down on cheaters and hackers, with Respawn handing out waves of bans to those who have been purposely exploiting the game. They have yet to address this particular issue, but it’s likely they will in the near future.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

Apparently, the new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump in to the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem. It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
