This one Apex Legends player decided to troll these exploiters using different tactics. After a whole lobby froze due to a presumed DDoS attack, the puppeteers made an attempt to kill players in the lobby for some free RP.

However, this Apex player actually lured the real culprit by pretending to be AFK while he was already reconnected to the server. And he also managed to convince his teammates to follow along with his AFK bait.
