The overall cheater issues on the Japanese server are at an all-time high right now. And the situation with the Asian servers is, in some cases, even worse. Something needs to be done in this instance regarding all the aimbots and blatant exploiters.
Ranked mode is almost unplayable due to these cheaters. On the Asian servers, most matches end up being a cheater vs. cheater show. That is not something average players or Respawn want to see.
Japanese Servers to Get a Cleanup
Following many complaints from Japanese players, Hideouts announced that he would be taking a closer look at all the problems that these players are facing every day. Later, he even encouraged players to send in clips of blatant cheaters his way so he could take action against these cheaters.
Hearing this news, many other players on the Asian servers also voiced their concern regarding the overwhelming presence of cheaters on the servers. In reply, Hideout assured players that these are temporary and that a more meaningful solution is already in the works.
As it turns out, Respawn is already working on a more sophisticated system to track down these lawless individuals. However, the exact details regarding this new solution have not been revealed as of this writing. We will update you with more up-to-date information regarding the cheater situation on the Asian and Japanese servers for Apex Legends.
