While most players that cheat in video games don’t really like advertising it, others apparently don’t feel so shy about cheating.
An Apex Legends player by the name of “Entzy” is streaming his point of view on YouTube, and he is using several in-game cheats to outdo his opponents. And even if you didn’t watch the stream, the title, “Entzy | CHEATING ON APEX,” points out the fact he is cheating, too.
After winning an Apex match in which he could see a rectangular box around each opposing player and he could instantly lock onto players’ heads, Entzy’s account was banned during the pre-game screen. Entzy didn’t seem to fazed by the ban, though.
“I guess I’ll just log into another account,” said Entzy. “That took longer than I thought it would take. I was kind of hoping it would happen quicker.”
Unfortunately for Entzy, he discovered that most of his other “cracked” accounts had been banned as well. He abruptly ended the stream after saying that he needed to “spoof” and that he’d be back soon.
During the stream, Entzy talked with several other people presumably in the same Discord server as him. They even discussed how “hacking” and “cheating” in games were different early on in the stream. No matter how they define it, though, it’s clear Entzy had no intention of playing on the same level as his opponents.
His YouTube stream says that he streamed for nearly two hours before being banned, which may indicate Respawn’s anti-cheat and reaction time to cheats can be improved.
