Infamous Apex Legends hacker Tufi is allegedly facing legal action from EA. NRG Rogue has even revealed that Tufi is in jail and currently going through the court process.
It’s no secret that Apex Legends has had problems with cheaters and DDoSers in high ranks of play. Some players will do anything to gain an advantage, even if it means spoiling the experience for everyone else.
One hacker that’s certainly garnered a reputation for taking over and ruining games at the high ranks is Tufi.
Popping up in pros and streamers games regularly, this player used an aimbot and hacks, making him nearly impossible to beat. However, after disappearing for a while, players have begun wondering what happened to the infamous cheater.
Looking for an update on his situation, fans took to a fellow streamer’s channel and hit him up with some questions. In his response, the player claimed EA tracked down Tufi’s identity and the company is pursuing legal action against the player.
During one of NRG Rogue’s Twitch streams, one of his viewers asked what happened to the hacker, Tufi. The popular Apex pro player then alleged that the cheater was in jail and facing severe legal action from EA.
According to Rogue, he had warned Tufi that consequences would come around if he didn’t stop what he was doing, but the advice fell on deaf ears.
“He’s in jail. That man is going through the court process right now, tried to warn him, tried to tell everybody, but yeah, our dude is now buried under legal fees.
“Not even joking. I’m not joking. EA got a hold of that dumb f**k. Straight punished his ass.”
