Apex Legends: Damage events triggered when spectating player

Related Games:
Apex Legends

Issue Description:
When the local player is spectating another player (at least another player on their team, not sure about players on other teams) and the spectated player inflicts damage, a damage event is triggered.

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce):
When the local player dies in a game, spectate another player on the team and wait for damage events to be triggered.

Impact for my app: [e.g. x% of the users complained about it, it’s a show-stopper]
It was significant before I discovered the cause, but now I’m able to mitigate the issue.

Do you currently have a workaround?
I’m going to keep track of whether or not the player is alive, and have my app ignore damage events that occur while the player is dead.
