Respawn Planning to Ban Piggy-Backing in Apex Legends

Respawn is looking to stomp out players who use piggy-backing in Apex Legends.

For those of you not aware of the term, piggy-backing refers to a player who joins a team and literally does nothing. Doesn’t fire a shot, doesn’t move, doesn’t do anything but collected the reward, which includes XP, at the end.

It’s led to a level of toxicity within the game and has compromised plenty of matches and Respawn is now looking to ban the behavior.

“After looking at the data and internal discussions, we’ve decided that in the future we’ll start instituting temp bans for players that exhibit piggy-backing behavior and extreme cases could lead to a permanent ban”, Respawn said during a post on Reddit.

“This change will not be immediate but wanted to give a heads up to players so you can adjust that behavior.”
