Apex Legends players were apparently able to play the game using keyboard and mouse on consoles giving them an unfair advantage against others. Respawn is currently evaluating what to do with them.
Respawn Entertainment has shared in a community post that while they don’t condone this practice, they are looking for ways to detect the players who are using keyboard and mouse on consoles.
Our stance on this? The short answer is: we don’t condone it. We are investigating ways to detect if players are doing it that we’re testing internally. That’s all we have to say on it for now but we’ll revisit this and talk about progress with detection and how we’ll address players that are using it in the near future.
It is possible that if the issue becomes widespread, they might end up disabling it altogether for Apex Legends on consoles.
Apex Legends is available now as a free-to-play game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game recently received a major update that started season 2.
