We all hate cheaters. They ruin games and in battle royale games it's even worse, which is why it's great to see Respawn tackling cheaters in Apex Legends with a harsh ban stick that hardware bans the pesky cheaters, period.


New reports suggest that people who are caught cheating in Apex Legends are getting their hardware banned which means they can't create a new account for Apex and play again. It's a pretty hardcore ban, but with Apex Legends being the hottest game on the market right now, Respawn need to handle cheaters seriously if they want to keep gamers happy.
