Piggy Backing in Apex Legends
Piggy Backing in the game is a term used when a player joins a squad and do nothing, instead depends on teammates to carry them to a good position in the game for gaining more experience and XP.
Respawn announced that after investigating the effect of this behavior on matches, they have decided to temporary ban players or the extreme case could lead to a permanent ban.
In the Reddit post, the company has also revealed its plans to fix the game’s crashing issue on PS4 as well as fixing hit registration on individual characters. The company has also confirmed that the new rule does not apply immediately in the game, but they will implement it in the near future.
Most of the players will welcome this feature as piggy-backing or not contributing to the game has been the primary concern of the players in the game.
