Twitch star Dr Disrespect is well known for his public outbursts while streaming and his May 22 broadcast was no different – this time, involving an ‘unkillable’ Wraith player in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends has been a massive hit with battle royale fans ever since its sudden release back in February, so it comes as no surprise that some of the most popular streamers are playing and enjoying it.

Like any other game, Apex is subject to hacks and exploits that cause unfair gameplay advantages to cheating players, and Dr Disrespect witnessed this firsthand during his May 22 stream.

Dr Disrespect/TwitchThe Wraith player was using an invincibility cheat.

While playing in a squad with TSM’s Jesse ‘Kraftyy’ Kraft and Colton ‘Viss’ Visser, the Two-Time ran into a Wraith player who was soaking up damage like a sponge but wouldn’t die – an action that is very common with someone who is using hacks.

The Wraith plays a game of cat and mouse with Dr Disrespect, kicking down the door to the building he was in and then running off, immune to every bullet being shot her way.

After giving chase, he tries to kill her once again but is unsuccessful and is eventually wiped out, eliminating his entire squad from the match.

“What the fuck is this guy?! It’s the same goddamn fucking Wraith, man!” shouts an angry Doc, “Jesus Christ! I’m shooting shields after shields!”

“That Wraith is literally the unkillable, dude,” RealKraftyy states as they head back to the lobby to load back into a new match.

It’s not the first time Dr Disrespect has been angry at the game

Dr Disrespect has aired his frustrations with Apex Legends before, after returning from a break he took to focus on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

While battling in a squad, Doc and his team suddenly froze in midair and dropped down into the map below – a result of some serious server lag.

They laughed it off at first but when it happened again and they got disconnected, the popular streamer said, “Look at this. Apex Legends huh? Oh man, what did I come back to?”

The servers have since been fixed and seem to be in stable condition so now all Respawn needs to do is tackle the hackers who make the game less enjoyable for everybody else.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
