Apex Legends had one of the biggest strikes on cheaters recently. The dev company, Respawn Entertainment announced that now over 770,000 accounts have been banned for use of cheats, previously 500,000 accounts were banned. However, cheating is not the only reason anybody can get banned in Apex Legends.
Harassments, abusive language, overall being toxic is a reason to get banned in Apex Legends although it isn’t common at all compared to other Battle Royale titles. Apex Legends players may harass each other time to time due to how competitive the game is and therefore the desire to win games.
