Apex Legends is a dedicated multiplayer title and, as such, is extremely susceptible to hacking and/or injecting malicious software by the sheer number of people who've logged in to try the game out. Statistically, someone is cheating, somewhere, and that's obviously a problem.
Apex Legends Easy Anti-Cheat is the software solution EA and Respawn have opted to use in this case, and though it's sure to stop at least some amount of hacking, it would seem that legitimate users are having problems with it as well. Here's what we know.
How to Fix Problems With Easy Anti-Cheat in Apex Legends?
Easy Anti-Cheat problems have even got a dedicated EA support page we've referenced, and there's a number of potential solutions to consider. They are, however, almost entirely generic:
- verify connectivity to Easy Anti-Cheat
- update Windows
- update Apex Legends
- close all unnecessary programs
- try disabling your anti-virus software
Should all else fail, EA suggests that: "your operating system is most likely heavily corrupted or the hardware is broken." Yikes! "We strongly recommend performing a clean Windows installation," continues the post.
Our own suggestion, however, would be to wait for an update to sort things out. If you're not experiencing issues consistently and across the board, your OS installation is very unlikely to be the crux of the issue.
