We’re used to the British tabloids attacking Fortnite for turning the nation’s children into monsters, but now they’re attacking Fortnite players for making money from the game.
This week, Epic gave 17-year-old Brit Jarvis Kaye, aka Fortnite pro FaZe Jarvis, a lifetime ban from the game for using an aimbot.
Kaye took to YouTube, where he has 2.1m subscribers, to publish a tearful apology. In the video, which has seen nearly 9.5m views, Kaye insists he used the aimbot in a non-competitive game mode with an alternative account in order to create entertainment for his fans, and claims to have been unaware of the consequences of his actions.
