Respawn has confirmed it does not condone Apex Legends players using a keyboard and mouse on consoles.
In amongst some discussion about Apex Legends competitive events and its Respawn Artist Showcase in the “7.19 Respawn Check-In” update on Reddit, the developer dropped a little reminder that if you’re using a mouse and keyboard whilst playing the free-to-play battle royale on console, they “are investigating ways to detect if players are doing it that”.
“Our stance on this? The short answer is: we don’t condone it,” said community manager, Jay Frechette. “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.”
