There is currently no way to report player in-game, however you can still report them here.
Reporting players can help the anti-cheat finding how to counter act cheating and detecting them before they are able to use them.
I know this sounds a bit strange but if players help the anti cheat, it can improve the fair play as cheaters will get banned sooner.

Hi @theWonderChris , yes I know that Apex is different compared to BF4, but the generic issue on reporting cheats to EA - AND GETTING THOSE CHEATS OFF THE GRID - is exactly the same problem across all multiplayer games in their arsenal. Btw, the cheat reporting function that you described above is not correct for the PS4 platform. It is correct that you can easily report any player from the game or messaging in this way, BUT! All those reports are going straight to SONY, not to EA.
And SONY only handles any reports on players that are related to code of conduct for their PSN platform. Aka, hate speech, sexual discrimination, profanity, etc. They are not able to handle any report coming in related to aka a wall glitcher in an EA game you play and have met that cheat.
That is why I propose that EA need absolutely to implement a function, so while in midgame you can go to the scoreboard and right click (or R3) on that players name to report that player to EA Support. Using same methodology as SONY has implemented well for the PS4 in general. So very easy and quick to do, by help of pre-set reporting issue choices and links to how to attach screenshot or videofeed to you report. And please notice, you also get a warning from SONY that if the reporting of that other player shows to be 'faked' or dishonest in any way, you risk yourself a penalty. (aka, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month or 1 year off the game grid!)
This works extremely well for SONY. They are serious about it. Timely responses and you see the reported players are gone from PSN (and thereby also any online activity) very shortly after your reporting.
Again, SONY are not handling in game cheats. EA needs to do this for their own games.
In total I have a list of around 1200 wall glitchers on BF4. Had screenshots of every single one of them. Mainly from other gamers sending them to me when on my server, as been admin since launch of BF4 on popular servers, so it all adds up... ;o)
Another real bad thing from EA is that the player ban list in the game is only able to handle 100 banned players. So when it is full, you need to remove some of the oldest entrants on that list. With the result those cheats will be coming back and starting all over again. This is simply too poor from EA that they do not support us better to get rid of those cheats that destroy the pleasure of EA gaming for so many other respectful players!
Right, and so if that's the case where people are being abused racially, sexually, harrassed... whatever, they need to contact EA Support directly and log an enquiry to take the correct action.
Don't just request an automated, in-game solution that'll be abused more than the players are. This'll lead to people being banned for doing absolutely nothing wrong except making someone feel "butthurt".
There is literally no use case for an automated or in-game reporting function regarding "abuse" that 99.999999999999% of the time doesn't even take place. In the 150+ games I've played of Apex so far, I've not yet encountered a single person that's told me to kill myself, or uttered racial slurs, or been sexist... Yet, with the reporting function you're asking for, I can whole-heartedly guarantee you that in those 150+ games, 149 of them would have had instances where one person would have reported another for "abuse" simply because they don't like being called out for their bad decision making, or poor skill.

Just stumbled upon this on youtube whicch shows how easy it is to cheat, how it bypasses anticheat and how it totally destroys the game.
Please check this out and do something about it: [Removed by CM]

Hey all, please do not share links to any cheats you may see as doing so is technically a breach of the AHQ User Rules and Guidelines.
From here on out, any sharing of videos or naming of users and accusing them of cheating or linking to cheating sites will result in bans.
If you are in game and suspect a user of cheating then please report them by following the steps in this link: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/support/apexlegends/contact/report/
We take all reports very seriously and will fully investigate.
Seeing many more nonsense names and feixiugangs that are obviously cheating. PLEASE PING LOCK, ban vpns. Force the regions to stay separated to spare us the cheating hordes.
IF every gamer would use this option wisely...it would be a good Idea. BUT we all know thats is not true! :P
In the end too many will use it out of frustration and then it will become so much work for the support...that they dont want to check all of the reports.
As i said in my own topic. Use a better AC-Software!! Easy "Anti" Cheat is the most worse to use :D Better use Battleeye. Its more expensive, but its woth it, my dear def´s.
Well..and the few cheaters that still remaim...because there always will be some with enough money to buys privat-hax..they can be reported as usual here with video or without. And the support has enough time to check them out.
Start From Yesterday I have meet 3-4 times hacker for sure... and today more than 5 times!! 1 squad all gold ammor and using wingman long range no miss kill my squad.. please do something before ur game going down!
Went to checkout Battleye and this was literally the splash message from their home page:
"Hey PUBG players, due to a glitch in our system we have banned a bunch of innocent players within the past hour"
Also checking out their list of games I'd hardly consider them the 'gold standard' of anti-cheat services, of the one's i know - ARMA, H1Z1, Day-Z, PUBG, Fortnite, Ark, Planetside all have cheater problems. I've also seen lots of footage of Siege hacks/cheats - but i'm not close enough to the game to know if these are 1 offs or if it's a big problem.
I don't work for EA i'm just a gamer trying to help. Respect one another and have fun.
