Respawn Entertainment has eliminated the viewer indicator to combat espionage. But now their player base is gathering to see a return to fight hackers.
When it comes to demands from their fans, Respawn Entertainment is has answered the call to improve Apex Legends more than many times. They’ve been improving their game with every patch while working tirelessly to create a cheat-free environment for their loyal player base.
But with these patches and attempts to take action as much as possible, some features have had to be sacrificed.
Some players recently recalled how things were in Apex Legends pre-anti-cheat days and, as usual, took to Reddit to express their feelings.
One of the discussions was about a feature that made cheating incredibly easy – but fans may have found a solution to bring it back and, shockingly, stop hackers.
A faction of Apex Legend players want to see viewership return
There was a time when the Apex Legends in-game UI would show an eyeball next to your skulls to let you know how many players were watching your game after you destroyed them. It was the best of times, but it also turned out to be the worst of times.
Cheaters suddenly encountered players with the dark side of a great, simple mechanic: espionage. Apex Legends players used the feature to observe an enemy and then relay the message to their living teammates exactly where they were on the map.
But despite that reasoning, fans are clamoring for the return of their prized spectator mode.
In a recent Reddit post, Apex players were faced with a question: “Should they bring back the viewer indicator?” With 3,1,000 likes and 330 comments, the post started an honest dialogue about how bringing the feature back to the game could help stop hackers.
Suggestions on how Spectator Indicator could stop hackers
A user named “HandoAlegra” suggested that Respawn Entertainment should bring back the viewership indicator, but Change the format to prevent scammers from using it as spyware.
“Maybe they should bring it back but set it to like it… 4 people watch before it shows up for trios,” HandoAlegra explained in their Reddit comment. “And 3 for duos? Scammers attract crowds.”
Another user named Rampart, who owns the original post, offered further insight into the matter, addressing what HandoAlegra previously said. “Coming to think of it. It should always be visible to viewers,” Rampart said. “That way, if someone is suspicious, a viewer knows they’re not the only one.”
At the moment, it’s not easy to know whether or not Respawn Entertainment will bring back the spectator display. But one thing is for sure – fans are excited for the return of a feature that has been missing for a while.
