Game developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that players of Apex Legends that do not contribute to the squad might face consequences later on.

Apex Legends piggyback players will face bans

There are certain players in the popular battle royale video game that will go AFK after deploying and will contribute for the squad entirely. After the recent announcement by Respawn Entertainment, they will not be doing such things anymore. It is some sort of abuse too since it can be frustrating for the other players who do all the work while the other one just lazes around.

Respawn Entertainment said in a statement:

After looking at the data and internal discussions, we’ve decided that in the future we’ll start instituting temp bans for players that exhibit piggy-backing behavior and extreme cases could lead to a permanent ban. This change will not be immediate but wanted to give a heads up to players so you can adjust that behavior.

The game is now available on PlayStation 4.
