The popular streamer, NICKMERCS, tweeted out that people who cheat and hack in games should be sent to jail.
Cheating and hacking issues have always been a big challenge for players as well as game developers. Despite having some of the best anti-cheat systems out there, the cheating issue is hard to resolve completely.
Nonetheless, whether you are a die-hard competitive gamer or a casual player, you are sure to get upset and angry when you face a hacker or a cheater during a game such as Apex Legends and Warzone 2.0.
The cheating issue is considered a disease in the online gaming community, and hackers and cheaters are the ones who purposely spread them. So, naturally, many people think it is a serious offense that should be punishable by law. The Popular Apex Legends and Warzone 2.0 streamer, NICKMERCS, also feels the same.
