‘Apex Legends’ to penalize players who leave Arena matches

If you are one of those gamers who tend to leave a match in-between, then Apex Legends won’t spare you from now on.

Respawn has announced that a new Apex Legends update will punish those players who abandon Arena matches.

‘Apex Legends’ new update details

In its latest tweet, Respawn made it clear that the game will impose strict penalties on those who leave Arena matches of 3v3.

“We’re restoring the slow effect to Wattson’s fences, introducing leaver penalties to Arenas, improving loot distribution for backpacks, and more!”

The Arena mode features a 3v3 option for the players and has become quite popular by now.

However, there is also a major problem with players leaving a squad in the middle of a match.

While mentioning its latest patch, Respawn said this issue and the solution to it as well.

But there’s an important thing to be noted for Apex Legends players regarding the new update.

Respawn clarified that you will only concede a penalty if you are in an entire squad and leave the match. It means that you won’t be punished in case of some other teammate leaves before you.

After applying the new update, Apex Legends players will get a warning before abandoning an Arena match.

When it comes to leaving an online multiplayer game, it has been an issue for other titles. But the Respawn game has gone through it a lot compared to its rivals.

Maybe it’s because only three teammates join a squad. And if anyone leaves, then a group ends up getting weaker against its opponents.
