Epic Games take cheating very seriously and have sued a Fortnite cheater in the past. In September, Epic settled a lawsuit against a minor that Epic accused of cheating, and it looks like a popular Fortnite content creator has suffered the consequences of cheating. FaZe Clan member and Fortnite content creator Jarvis Kaye revealed that he was permanently banned from the massively popular Battle Royale shooter for uploading videos that showed him using aimbots in both solos and playground mode.
Jarvis Kaye, also known as Faze Jarvis, is a full-time streamer for Faze clan. He has nearly 2 million subscribers on YouTube and nearly 600,000 followers on Twitch. In a video posted yesterday, November 3rd, Faze Jarvis announced that he’d been permanently banned from Fortnite. He posted an emotional video on his YouTube channel, in which he explained the situation and apologized for his actions.
In the video, Faze Jarvis states he’s been banned from Fortnite for life for posting videos on his YouTube channel of him using an aimbot in both solos and playground mode. He mentions he never used an aimbot in competitive game modes and only posted the videos to entertain his viewers.
An emotional Jarvis mentions he can never play Fortnite again and urges his viewers to review the Epic Games terms of service for Fortnite. According to Jarvis, this permanent ban means he can no longer attend any Fortnite events in the future.
“All I was thinking about while making those videos is how entertaining and like interesting these videos would be for you guys to watch. It didn’t even cross my mind I could be banned for life from Fortnite for this,” Kaye said. Jarvis ends the video by apologizing to everyone watching the video, and thanks to everyone for the support they’ve shown him for the last two years. Kaye also published a tweet about the incident.
I’m going to take accountability for my actions and I understand completely why this has happened, I just wish I had known how severe the consequences were at the time and I would have never thought about doing it. I love all of you who still support me, this is not the end.
