Is it me or has there been a HUGE rise in Aimbots recently?

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I remember seeing aimbots & speedhacks in the earlier days of Apex, but then they either lost interests, or Respawn's Anti-Cheat measures where temporarily effective. But it seems that this past week I can't go 2-3 games without running into one lasering me down with headshots, in a fraction of a second from 50m away, making the whole experience up to that point a total and utter (highly frustrating) waste of both my time and energy.

Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed this massive resurgence of aimbotters recently?

Snagged the end of the game that lead to me getting frustrated enough to making this post and asking if anybody else has noticed this trend. You can see it here:

Not sure what server you're on...But, yesterday on the Singapore server and Taiwan server, there seemed to be a jump. Yup, I remember when that speed hack was out...lol..Hated that thing!

@OmniDetta Yes. I mean respawn unbans streamers who blatantly hack so why would they ban regular cheaters?

Seriously?  Jesus. But some Joe Blow gets a false ban and nothing happens...brutal!

@OmniDetta So it isn't just my imagination. Since the Iron Crown update the number of hackers have skyrocketed.

@OmniDetta Yes, they're making a comeback. I've seen players who were on one side of the map, and then a few seconds later they're on the other side pushing my team up against a wall with aimbot.

"(lets keep those videos out of the forums, no name and shame) - Atic"

Why? There was no specific naming and shaming in the post, and it's quite clear that this wasn't the intent of the video.

The video was a gameplay capture hosted on YouTube highlighting a problem that apparently many people have struggled with. It was there to both showcase what is clearly a growing problem, and act as a catalyst for discussion. I really don't know why would you go so far out of your way to protect the identity of somebody who is unquestionably using 3rd party (strictly prohibited) methods to destroy the experience for your legitimate playerbase (and paying customers), especially when the player name in question reveals nothing, is clearly gibberish, and most probably a burner account used to boost other, older, ranked accounts.

A lot of the time that random "joe blow" was experimenting with hacks in 1 other game, and didn't get the memo EAC carries hwid bans over to other games under EAC. A lot of crybabies here and in other game forums protected by EAC are dirty and know it. They use the "* false ban" shtick when in fact unless it is a manual spectated ban, it's actually a  conservative check for hashes of known hack files.

 

EAC in its current state is actually too conservative and this game is overrun with aimbots/wallhacks as a result. If they implemented machine learning to detect things like a user placing their cursor over enemies 3 walls deep with no audio clues or mouse sensitivites that made no sense, then they'd be doing something real.
