Apex Legends - Season 10

An upcoming update for Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends removes a popular movement exploit from the game, which allowed many players with a firm understanding of the game’s mechanics to avoid damage in a way that is impossible to combat. Respawn Entertainment’s official Twitter account posted a tweet suggesting its reasonings for the removal of “tap-strafing.”

Players of the incredibly popular battle-royale will be familiar with tap-strafing, which allows you to change directions mid-air without losing any momentum. Developer Respawn Entertainment calls this an unfair advantage since this is an exploit that is hard to combat. Of course, this exploit is only possible on PC which further exacerbates this issue.

Respawn’s Apex Legends is undoubtedly the studio’s biggest hit, and has received a new Legend in the form of Seer. However, players of Titanfall 2 and the original Titanfall have been struggling with hackers for a long time now, which has sparked a lot of controversy on the matter.
