Fortnite Player Faze Jarvis Banned Permanently for Aimbotting

F O R T Hidden Fortnite Letters

"All I was thinking about whilst making those videos was just how entertaining and interesting those videos would be for your guys to watch", he said. Since Jarvis used the targetbots in the solo queue and used it against other players in a live scenario, it violated the terms of service of Epic Games and resulted in a permanent.

KSI isn't the only gamer who feels that way - there's been a backlash over the punishment from people who think a 1-strike rule for aimbots is just too severe. especially since Jarvis isn't even a legal adult yet. Khattri also mentions "playing on a new PC" because "I don't want to get my main PC banned", suggesting he was somewhat aware of the risks of using an aimbot on video. According to some sources, Fortnite has more than 200 million accounts registered.

The makers of Fortnite, Epic Games, say they take cheating very seriously and those doing it could get a permanent ban across all its products. The YouTube creator and FaZe clan member made a decision to use the software but was caught and later banned from the game. Again I can't stress this enough, that doesn't make it any better.

"When people use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly", Epic said. In fact, the gamer actually posted various videos of himself using cheats, though he claimed that it was for entertainment purposes and says he never cheated during competitive play.

The ban hasn't gone down well on social media, with many users pointing out that another gamer only received a two-week ban despite being caught cheating in qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup.

The suspension came after Epic reviewed a video in which one of the players was accused of getting free eliminations to earn more points. "At the time I posted those videos I was completely oblivious what could happen to me, what the consequences were". "The amount of happiness I get playing Fortnite every day is insane". On the other, you could argue that a lifetime ban on all accounts just for someone trying to entertain their fanbase is perhaps a little extreme. It could be possible that Epic is trying to keep things surprising, such as when they quietly slipped a new Harpoon Gun into the game recently. Will Jarvis be able to still compete in the tournaments or his contract with the FaZe Clan is in danger.
