Fortnite pro FaZe Jarvis cops life ban for aimbot cheat

That's for the reason that Epic Video games has issued Khattri a life time ban from Fortnite soon after he posted a online video (since deleted, mirrored listed here) demonstrating him applying aimbot computer software to cheat in the game. Jarvis's use of the aimbot goes against Fortnite's rules, which state that "cheaters are permanently banned across all Epic products".

Jarvis has since removed the offending videos, which depicted the FaZe Clan member using a type of cheat that automatically targets opponents and moves the firing crosshair accordingly.


In his apology, while, Khattri claimed that he "just assumed about entertaining you guys" when making the aimbot movie and under no circumstances envisioned this degree of effect.

The video in question showing the aimbotting was removed from his YouTube channel shortly afterward, though user Fortnite Area reposted the video, revealing the extent to which Jarvis was using the aimbot.


When asked about his thoughts on the Jarvis situation on stream, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins expressed a clear view that the permaban was too harsh. A few months back, the Fortnite competitive side was surrounded by controversy when Epic chose to suspend two pro players for just a few weeks. While the reason for that is unknown, as well as even if we will be getting the official patch notes, there have been notable changes made to the game that we feel are worth covering. In an emotional YouTube video published late on Sunday, the British Fortnite personality shared the news after uploading multiple videos depicting the use of aimbot hacks in the cult-phenomenon battle royale shooter. His supporters are outraged because of Epic Games treating players differently. Below is a video uploaded by Jarvis Kaye with his official statement. "I'm going to take accountability for my actions, and I understand completely why this has happened", Jarvis tweeted. Despite being caught cheating in a highly competitive environment, XXiF's ban only lasted two weeks, which actually allowed him and partner Ronaldo to continue competing in the World Cup, where they placed 28th in the duos finals.

Epic Games has surprised most of the Fortnite players with their most recent secret move. "Becoming banned forever... a lifetime ban is just..." They think there should not be a ban. If you hit an enemy player with it, the Harpoon Gun will do 75 damage and yank them towards you for a closer engagement.
