FaZe Clan Member Banned From Fortnite For Using Aimbot

A popular Fortnite pro who joined the competitive esports team FaZe Clan earlier this year has been issued a lifetime ban from the battle royale shooter for using an aimbot.

Jarvis Khattri has been "permanently banned on Fortnite for life" for using an aimbot in the game's Solos and Playground modes. While Khattri notes in an apology video that "this is the first time" he's ever done anything like this and has "never done this in a competitive game mode at all," developer Epic Games makes its rules explicitly clear its End User License Agreement.

One of the EULA's clauses states that "running or using methods which are not authorized by Epic and which interfere with the outcome and/or the course of the Software (including Cheats, bots, scripts, or mods not expressly authorized by Epic)" is strictly prohibited.

In a statement to the press, Epic Games exercised the common "cheaters never prosper" mantra. "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."

"I was completely oblivious to what could happen to me, what the consequences were. Obviously, this was a huge mistake and is completely wrong on my end," Khattri said. "Genuinely, I don't even know what I was thinking. Cheating in anything is just terrible, you should never do it. It's not acceptable. It's zero-tolerance. It's just such a dumb thing to do. I should've paid more attention to the community rules and the TOS of Fortnite. I just wanna urge you guys to review all of those Terms of Service and stuff so that nothing like this could ever happen to you because it's actually so shit."

Khattri can be seen using the aimbot in a mirrored YouTube video, where he confirms that he's running on a backup PC. "I had to go on a new PC," Khattri said. "I don't wanna get my main PC banned. Sounds weird [that] I have a spare PC, but it's just a spare PC that's been in the house."
