qQun chat in Apex Legends are from Bots, Selling Cheats

Written by

We’ve just received a report that Bots are flooding Apex Legends match with promotional text and recorded voice during the initial match. Bots are sending text messages to the chat box that start with “qQun” and sends a recorded voice message that encouraging players to buy their cheats. The qQun text is a chat channel for Qq chat messaging, it also serves as their contact information for their potential customer.

The bots usually have a random username with a combination of letters and numbers. When they entered a match, they automatically send a text message something like “Qqun790062582, Qqun940516020, Qqun495069345, FZ-QQun-235360744”, then blasted a recorded Chinese female voice telling other players to buy their cheat and contact them through the qQ channel. Once they’ve done the spammy promotion, the bot will automatically leave the match.

Other players are annoyed with these bots for giving them a bad experience, they have no choice but to leave the match and redo matching..

So far, EA and the dev team is not yet aware of this situation. We’re hoping they’re going to fix this issue and automatically ban these bots with those kinds of activity in their accounts.

Here’s an example video of how the bots works, uploaded by a Facebook Streamer Largamau.TV.
