Popular YouTube stars sued by Epic Games for selling Fortnite cheats

Fortnite In-Game Tournaments Announced, All Platforms and Control Types to Compete Freely

Brandon Lucas has a ton of subscribers on his YouTube channel Golden Modz, well over 1.7 million, and they're all tuning in to watch videos of him cheating at Fortnite. The company also briefly forced popular single-player mod tool OpenIV to shut down, but that service was restored after discussions and changes to protect the online portion of the game.

While we'll have to wait until its available to see the kind of destruction the Quadcrasher can cause, we're betting that it's going to be very useful for ploughing through any structures that other players build.

Epic Games have a stringent strict policy when it comes to cheaters, they had previously sued two people after they were found cheating playing Fortnite. We'll be continuing to iterate on this to provide a better matched experience, so expect this to fluctuate regularly.

"Nobody likes a cheater".

Regarding the issues with points, Epic Games said that there were two scenarios the developer was aware of.

Epic's particular objections to Lucas and Conter's videos is that they show and point Fortnite players towards aimbots which allow players to auto-aim at rivals, and that they use "ESP" hacks to reveal hidden loot or players who should be out of sightlines.

The website for the Infamous mod went offline back in March but for months prior had sold lifetime "Premium" memberships in the cheating software for $40.

For those taking their Fortnite gaming super-seriously, the Fortnite competitions will certainly be of interest to you.

One of the sites mentioned in the lawsuit sold cheat software for as much as $299.99. He got accused for copyright and for breaking the terms and conditions of the game's EULA Epic.But the lawsuit does not stop here as Lucas is now using his videos to promote hacks that can be directly purchased from his website. The claim acknowledges that the financial damage done to the "Fortnite" brand is not exactly quantifiable, but Epic wants the pair to deliver any profits earned from their cheating. Business Insider has reached out to Epic and the defendants for comment.
