[Update]: Respawn has now released an official Trello Tracker detailing what bugs they're currently working on fixing.

Apex Legends' recent Season 2 update has added a whole bunch of new content, including the very first iteration of the ranked mode. However, while all of these are positive changes, they have unfortunately brought with them some rather serious problems as well.

As you might imagine, where there is a ranked mode, there are hordes of cheaters just looking to dive in and ruin everyone's fun. Apex Legends is no different in this regard, and seeing people with aim or wall hacks in the higher ranks is sadly a very common occurrence. It's gotten to the point where you can sometimes even see multiple cheaters duel each other from across the map with perfect accuracy!

Thankfully, Respawn is not being silent on the issue, as they have just released a developer update detailing what they're doing to combat the cheaters. Besides increasing the amount of resources and people dedicated to catching cheaters, they are currently in the process of figuring out a way to quickly check if newly created accounts are spammers/cheaters, as well as extending the punishment system to people that party up with cheaters for rank boosting or badge hunting.

When it comes to the recent code:leaf or code:net errors that have been popping up on both PC and consoles, Respawn is once again working on a solution, though this one might take a little while as they're still trying to figure out what exactly is happening. That said, fixing the servers is currently a priority, so hopefully we'll see all of this nonsense resolved in the near future.
