In the words of Respawn Entertainment, "cheaters suck."

In an update on the Apex Legends subreddit, the developer noted that over 16,000 cheaters have already been banned from the game.

At the moment players still have to report cheaters through an external site, but the same reddit post describes an in-game reporting feature as "a very good idea :)" so it's likely to be in the works.

One of Respawn's main focuses is to fix bugs and combat issues that are causing game crashes. The developer notes "As you can imagine, when you drop your game out of nowhere and 25 million people show up in the first week, there’s going to be all kinds of issues, bugs, exploits, etc. discovered."

Ah, the burdens of a hugely successful game.

Thankfully, this work won't detract from Respawn's development of another Titantfall experience later this year.

And of course they're also cooking something up in a galaxy far, far away.
