The newest Solos mode in Apex Legends hasn't been around long enough - but it is already being abused. Some players are teaming up to easily take out their lonely opponents, and there're tons of video evidence. Unfortunately, a poorly implemented report feature does not allow to send some proper feedback.
Interestingly, the Solos mode was positively welcomed by players - although it is quite obvious that such a mode cannot work well enough in a game with a cast of distinctive characters who have various abilities, hitboxes, and even damage resistance. The whole idea of making it into a limited-time mode looks as if Respawn is trying to show the player base that this widely requested feature is not viable - and here comes the first serious issue with teaming. In a video below, you can see a player being killed by three others in the Solos mode. He decided then to spectate his foes - only to enjoy a case of blatant teaming, which is getting more and more out of hand now.
The official subreddit already has several complaints, as the players are sharing their sad experience of running into duos and squads in the Solos mode. Adding more functionality to the report feature might actually turn the tables there, although Respawn might take the easy way and simply put the mode away.
Which could be reasonable, actually, since introducing a proper Duos mode, for instance, would've been a much more welcomed addition.
