Broom has been banned once and stated he's working on his own cheat for the game, and Vraspir was banned nine times. Fortnite cheating became epidemic following the release of the free Battle Royale multiplayer mode. To architect cheats for Fortnite's new battle royale mode, which now boasts over ten million players, the cheat-makers would have to reverse-engineer and modify the game's source code. "We don't want to give too many clues about what we're doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so". Epic Games filed two lawsuits with a North Carolina federal court against two players accused of cheating in Battle Royale and violating Epic's copyrights.

Epic also highlights the fact that the cheater's are actively breaking the games EULA - "The software the Defendant uses to cheat infringes Epic's copyrights in the game and breaches the terms of agreements to which Defendant agreed in order to have access to the game". Thousands of accounts have since been banned.

"Nobody likes a cheater".

Ohio boy missing from crime scene believed to be in danger
Authorities say three people have been fatally shot, a fourth person stabbed and an 7-year-old boy is missing in southeast Ohio. The sheriff says deputies spotted Lawson driving around 12:30 a.m., but he ran into woods after a short pursuit in Ironton.

For $5 to $15 monthly subscriptions, Addicted Cheats' botting services aid players in tracking, aiming at and killing enemies in PvP games. "Defendant uses cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game", read the complaints.

With this being the case, many publications are now wondering if the publisher of PUBG, Bluehole, will actually follow through on its threats of filing legal action.

According to the complaints, both defendants offer technical support for AddictedCheats.com and, with cheats the site provides, monitor streams and intentionally prevent streamers from winning. This is also technically the same number for how many players have won a game as that's the only way you can earn an umbrella.
