Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a system for reporting cheaters in-game will be added to Apex Legends.

The prevalence of cheaters has been one of the biggest complaints Apex Legends has faced since its release.

Respawn have stated that they have in fact been taking action against cheaters, revealing that they banned more than 16,000 players in the first week alone, but players continue to run into suspicious activity.

While cheating is an unfortunate but inevitable aspect of almost any multiplayer game, the main reason players have found it so frustrating in Apex Legends is that there is no in-game report function by which to alert the developers to a suspicious account.

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends recently hit a massive 50 million players worldwide.

It is possible to report players suspected of cheating, or other infringements of the game’s rules, but doing so requires going to the EA website and filling in a form.

Fortunately, this issue does look set to be rectified. Apex Legends Product Manager Lee Horn confirmed that Respawn have heard the complaints and will be addressing them soon.

“A more detailed post about cheating is coming, so I don’t want to steal [Community Manager] Jay’s thunder, but a reporting feature is definitely on the way.”

While no exact ETA for the feature has been confirmed, players can likely expect more information quite soon. Respawn Associate Producer Josh Medina confirmed that a “state of dev” update coming “this week” – presumably, therefore, by March 10 at the latest – would cover “other subjects not pertaining to balance”, which seems likely to include addressing the cheating issue.

Respawn Entertainment are also expected to reveal more details regarding Season One, which is believed to be releasing on March 12, although no official date has yet been confirmed.

It’s that time of year again, when Halloween comes to gaming, and Respawn are bringing their spooky theme back to Apex Legends. The Fight or Fright event comes with a collection of scary skins, and a new twist on the last year’s Shadowfall LTM, now called Shadow Royale.

Just like Warzone’s “Haunting of Verdansk” event, the map will be getting another makeover, and players will get a chance to play as new and improved ‘Shadows’ in the Shadow Royale mode.

Last year’s Shadowfall LTM went down a treat: not only did we get to see (and hear) Revenant for the first time, it was a brilliant twist of the standard battle royale gameplay.

Also, to make sure you look the part, lots of Halloween-themed skins are coming to the store. Many of them are similar to last year’s though with fresh colors, but there’s also brand new ones for the new Legends that have been added since last October.

Shadow Royale LTM

In the Shadow Royale mode, players will play as both normal Legends, as well as drop-in as Shadows once eliminated. Shadows are now more deadly than before in some ways, as they can now wallrun and double jump (Titanfall players rejoice).

Plus, rather than just playing in Solos, there’s Shadow Squads, where teammates remain as Shadows as long as one Legend remains alive.

Then there’s Final Death, when the final Legend dies, all shadows die too. We also see Shadow Prowlers, what role they will play remains to be seen, but they’re attacking the remaining Legends in the trailer.

Wallrunning, just like Titanfall, is finally in Apex Legends – but only if you’re a Shadow.

Apex Legends Halloween skins

These skins are being dubbed ‘resurrected’, pretty much meaning they are recolors of previous skins from last year’s Fight or Fright event.

But, expect some new skins too for Legends that have been added since last Halloween – leaks have revealed a Loba skin with moving ghosts on it. You can check out a full look at the skins expected to drop here.

The Fight or Fright event runs from Thursday, October 22, to November 3, just in time for the expected launch of Season 7 on November 10.
