One more YouTuber is experiencing consequences of cheating hands-on. Jarvis, a famous YouTube creator as well member of FaZe Clanhas been banned by Epic Games from Fortnite permanently after he uploaded videos which featured aimbots(a hack for games which auto-focuses weapons of the player on opponents).
In the videos, he used the aimbots to cheat in the solo rounds as well as on the non-competitive modes of the game.
Jarvis is the younger brother of FaZe Kay, the director of famous FaZe Clan. His YouTube channel was nearly based on Fortnite videos that was his personal game choice until his lifetime ban.
Jarvis uploaded an apology video in which he said what he did was entirely wrong, adding that he was just thinking about making interesting and entertaining videos instead of the consequences of one possible ban.
A few critics have argued that imposing a lifetime ban on Jarvis was unfair. However, Epic pointed out via a statement that Jarvis modified the game itself using cheating software, which is against Fortnite’s terms of community and services guidelines. And just like other developers of game, Epic does not want to take a risk of players leaving the game due to cheaters ruining their playing experiences.
