Respawn is the company behind developing the game, and they are using Easy-Anti-Cheats on the PC version to discover players who are using hacking technics and cheats in the game to win.
"We'll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting [cheaters]," Game Spot quoted Respawn as saying. "We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players."

The developers have also confirmed that they are working on new anti-cheat measures which they can't disclose right now to anyone. It seems just like PUBG, Apex Legends developers are also going to be hard on hackers and cheaters.

"We're going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans," Respawn quoted in a report as saying. "Cheaters are crafty and we don't want them to see us coming."

According to the developers, they have started taking to the anti-cheat expert from EA as well as from outside to make the game more secure and fair for everyone. Respawn is also planning to introduce new reporting features in the game which will help players to report others for bad behaviour or if they spot someone playing unfairly.

Recently PUBG has also banned twelve professional players. The list also includes four professional players from the game's North American esports league. Back in December, it has banned around 30,000 players along with four professional players.
