Epic Sues Two Fortnite Cheaters

Over 292 Million Players Have Jumped From the Battle Bus in Fortnite Battle Royale

Specifically, their cheat is accused of modifying the game and infringing on Epic's copyright.

A report from TorrentFreak suggests the Fortnite developer has filed at least two lawsuits against two of its most notorious cheaters. Despite the rampant use of exploits by some of the user base's morally dubious fans, the popular free-to-play mode continues to grow, as the developer has now announced that Battle Royale has surpassed more than 10 million players in just two weeks' time. Thousands of accounts have since been banned.

Fortnite's battle royale mode has come under fire from rival Bluehole in recent weeks, who claimed the mode was far too similar to the battle royale behemoth PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

"To start, addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games", said Epic community coordinator Nathan Mooney in a statement on October 4.

Trump Attacks Puerto Rico, Threatens To Pull Emergency Responders
In addition to the federal effort, 22 states have responded to calls for aid in Puerto Rico. That is a daily shortfall of between 1.8m and 5.8m meals each day.

Epic also hinted that something like this was coming, saying that they were "constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers".

As it turns out, one of those steps involves legal action. "And nobody likes playing with cheaters".

The two cheaters in question are referred to as Mr. Broom and Mr. Vraspir. These axioms are particularly true in this case.

This is also technically the same number for how many players have won a game as that's the only way you can earn an umbrella. The pair face statutory damages of up to $150,000. However, if you want to send a strong message against potential cheaters, this is the way to do it.
