Addressing this problem is the "highest priority across Epic Games", it said at the time.

Epic Games has released a new infographic for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode sharing all sorts of stats such as the new game mode accumulating up to 10 million players in just 2 weeks. We are constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers. "And it's ongoing, we're exploring every measure to ensure the cheaters are removed and stay removed".

Epic filed civil complaints Tuesday against two alleged associates of Addicted Cheats, a website that provides aimbotting services to players. "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".

After a spate of banning scores of cheaters, the company has gone one step further by taking legal action against two well-established cheaters, according to data collected by TorrentFreak from a North Carolina Federal Court.

Epic's lawsuit says that Vraspir is himself a cheater, and through building the software sold through AddictedCheats.net, enabled others to cheat as well. Both defendants face a fine of $150,000.

"This is a copyright infringement and breach of contract case in which the Defendant is infringing Epic's copyrights by injecting unauthorized computer code into the copyright protected code of Epic's popular Fortnite video game". And nobody likes playing with cheaters.

Sounds pretty serious. And the complaint has also noted, "Nobody likes a cheater". These axioms are particularly true in this case.

"When cheaters use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly", an Epic rep said. "Defendant uses cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game".
