Respawn hits 16,000 Apex Legends cheaters with the banhammer

  • Players are mistakenly paying for Apex Construct, thinking it's Apex Legends

We're not exactly sure what the weapon will be, as you can see from the Tweet above, although it does seem to have some sort of "charged shot" effect as well as a normal automatic fire.

Report tool or no, Respawn notes that over 16,000 cheaters have been identified and banned from the game - with Respawn planning to check-in daily with the community via posts keep them updated on all things Apex Legends. The only other details in the code are that it will feature spectator and commenter non-player characters, as well as a replay system - which isn't part of the main game at the moment. So it doesn't want to let the issue get out of hand.

In addition to the astronomical jump in visits to its page, Juliusson mentioned that "we sold more units of Apex Constuct in China the last seven days than during all of 2018". Twitter account Apex Legends News & Leaks has uncovered evidence of two new characters - one named Octane, who has some sort of stim pack ability, and Wattson, who can deploy a "Tesla Trap".

Fixed issue where players would sometimes move slowly after revive.

Dataminers have found files suggesting the release of a free and paid Battle Pass, as well as a new Recruit mode.

Pressing the load button too early no longer causes the game to crash. Little else is known about the hero at the time of writing.

However, behind the success and hype that has ensued, Apex Legends has been hit with its fair share of challenges.

There's also the fact that Construct carries a price tag of US$29.99 - it's certainly not free-to-play and is something that you'd have thought would raise a red flag in the minds of potential players.
