Respawn has revealed it is working on a number of initiatives created to make it harder to cheat in its free-to-play battle royale, Apex Legends, including a new system that matchmakes cheaters and spammers so they're forced to play against each other. In a very cool move one of the things being worked on is "Matchmaking that matches detected cheaters and spammers together".
Cheating in online games sucks as it not only hurts the developers who try and create a fair and balanced game, but the gamers who are frustrated by constantly getting sniped by aimbots.
Respawn Entertainment also focuses on the feedback given by the players. Respawn is also planning on "improving detection that identifies and bans new spam accounts before they are used", which is good. We won't know for sure whether portable respawns will be added to the game until Respawn Entertainment makes an official announcement or adds the beacons to the game in a later patch. Respawn replied by saying this feature is on its way as well as an option that will allow the users to report any teammates they suspect to be cheating.

Apex Legends, a free to play title available for the PC, Xbox One and PS4, recently entered Season 2, which brings a new Battle Pass as well as some changes to the maps and weapons. Respawn also clarified that if you personally do not cheat, but are known to party with cheaters in order to get wins, then you are considered a cheater as well. Two-factor permission on high-risk accounts in some areas will be needed and, of course, Respawn will continue to work on its capacity to detect future new cheats.
Increasing resources whether that be people or tech.
Part of the reason why the war against cheating is something that can never be won is because cheat makers are constantly working on new ways to skirt the rules, and Respawn says that continuously working to adapt to new cheats is part of its strategy.
