Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game with a massive casual player base alongside a thriving competitive community.

While players can leave the normal game mode without receiving any penalties, the ranked mode has strict rules against AFKers and leavers. However, it is never fun for players to lose teammates amidst a battle even in the casual game mode.

Following many requests from players, Respawn recently added a “no-fill” option for players who wants to drop solo in a game. However, even after the no-fill option being added to the game, players can be often seen leaving their teammates behind.
