And there is not even a report button.

Good game. Soon ded.

Why would you need a report button ingame? 

The so called "HWID ban" can be spoofed by a single regedit key change and VPN use.

Weekends seems like a no go Apex wise. Hacking appears far more often when people tend to have a cocktail inside their body.

I posted a possible solution before yet EA deleted my post.

They need to take legal action against the sellers so at least this will go underground and hacks will not be publicly available, but will come at a major risk if they could be sued. Blizzard did this successfully with SC2 which turned the hacks from public to private.

They can also send ISP notices for ToS and potential legal action for using such software.

 

It wont fix the problem, but will greatly reduce the amount of hackers.

This is such a good idea and a good revenue creator for law enforcement.
Fine the perpetrators and put the money back into the government bank roll for the police force. Heavy fines will soon scare mongrels from buying cheats. As gaming is such a huge hobby and even a living. These laws should be implemented with the coders getting jail time even as it's a huge part of peoples time and money goes to the creators of these games for cheaters to run riot and even from a mental health perspective as countless cheaters creates issues here also.

Hi @ThisIsToXiN 

 

If you come across someone you suspect of cheating you are able to do that on the Easy Anti-Cheat website here.

 

I'm a complete rage-a-holic myself when it comes to cheats. But I do also play with players who are just out of this world good at Apex.

 

Happy gaming and I hope you have some great matches ahead.

A in-game report system is 99% coming to the game.

This a much requested feature and we are slowly getting updated on this issue.
