With Fortnite Battle Royale amassing a ton of new players in a super short amount of time, there’s no doubt, going to be Fortnite cheaters who’ll sully the fun of everyone by doing unspeakable stuff. This little bit hasn’t escaped Epic Games’ eyes, as the studio calls it their “highest priority” when it comes to Battle Royale.
Over on the official Fortnite website, Epic mentioned that they will ban accounts once account progression comes in for the game. Yep, account progression where players will earn stuff for playing Fortnite Battle Royale is now a thing!
To start, addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games. We are constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers. And it’s ongoing, we’re exploring every measure to ensure these cheaters are removed and stay removed from Fortnite Battle Royale and the Epic ecosystem. We don’t want to give too many clues about what we’re doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so. Thousands have been banned and we have no plans to stop!
In the next several weeks we’ll also roll out progression. Account progression means that you will earn stuff as you play. And it’s not just for fun – it will also help in the war against casual Cheaters and will give them less incentive to simply cheat their progression with a ban around the corner! For those persistent trolls, we’ll be continuing to work on solutions.
Hopefully, this means that Fortnite cheaters will be kept at bay, If you’re reading this and you’re looking for Fortnite cheats or a cheater yourself, what’s wrong with you? If you do spot some cheaters, report them to Epic directly.
