A popular Fortnite youtuber has been banned handed a permanent ban for cheating at the game. Faze Jarvis, a content creator for the popular battle royale shooter has been making videos for over a year. However, a recent video featured him using an aim-bot to take out opponents in a public game. He didn’t hide the fact that he was using a bot either, in fact, it was the main point of the video.
While the video may have been made for fun, Epic is handling the decision very seriously. They’ve handed him a permanent ban from the game for his flagrant abuse of their rules. Epic Games was quoted as saying “We have a zero tolerance policy for the usage of cheat software. When people use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly.”
