A hacker named Autismgaming999 streamed on Twitch in Apex Legends Control mode with cheats on. Soon after that, he received a ban from Twitch.
Despite the popularity of Apex Legends, the game is also infamous for its hacking issues. Since the game’s launch, there have been countless numbers of hackers who have made the game unenjoyable for many players.
Popular games like Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection use an anti-cheat system called Easy Anti-Cheat. Apex Legends also use this well-known anti-cheat protection to prevent hackers from ruining the game. However, it did not stop the cheaters.
Since the beginning, Respawn has been working on these hacker-related concerns, and they have constantly been updating the game and anti-cheat system. Respawn has banned countless cheaters throughout the lifetime of Apex Legends, but it did not completely stop the cheaters from bypassing the anti-cheat system.
Hacker streamed on Twitch and received a ban
An Apex Legends player named Autismgaming999 recently went live on Twitch. He was playing Apex Legends control mode, and the title of the stream was “Short stream (2-3 Control matches)”. And Within 30 minutes of the game, more than 1000 viewers joined the stream.
The cheater had no in-game name, and his teammates’ names were also not visible. Also, there was no killfeed and game ID, so he could not get detected in the game. However, after one and half hours of streaming with cheats on, he received a ban from Twitch, and his Twitch ID got deleted.
This Autismgamer999 is allegedly the same person who tried to frame a well-known content creator in Apex Legends named KralRindo, by leaking video footage of upcoming legends with KranRindo’s watermark on it. KralRindo later clarified that it was not him and someone else tried to frame him.
Though Autismgamer999 was banned from Twitch, it is still unclear whether he was given a ban from the game or not.
