Apex Legends wants to identify who plays with mouse and keyboard on consoles
Respawn Entertainment, developer of Apex Legends, said last weekend that it does not support those who use mouse and keyboard to play the console versions of the game. On Reddit, the company said it was “investigating ways to detect if a player is doing this” and could punish anyone who uses the combination that many consider to be responsible for an unfair advantage.
According to community manager Jay Frechette, the company does not have much more to say on the subject at the moment, but said it will return to the topic in the future to explain what the consequences will be for those who do not respect the developers’ wishes. So far, she has not explained the reasons for not seeing the combination of controls with a bad eye.
Respawn also explained that it is using new technologies to detect cheaters in Apex Legends. Among the solutions found by her is to group in the same rooms those who use cheats or usually send spam, ensuring that they will not contaminate the rest of the community dedicated to the game.
