Faze player banned from Fortnite for life after using aim hacks

FaZe Jarvis uploaded videos of himself using aimbot cheats in Fortnite.

FaZe player Jarvis Kaye has been banned from Fortnite for life after he uploaded a series of videos where he used cheating software in public matches.

FaZe Jarvis has since uploaded an apology video where he cries about being issued a lifetime ban for cheating in Fortnite after he uploaded videos of him cheating in Fortnite.

"All I was thinking about whilst I was making those videos was just how entertaining and interesting these videos would be for you guys to watch," Jarvis says in the video. "It didn’t even cross my mind to think that I could be banned for life from Fortnite from those videos."

The videos in question showed Jarvis using aimbot cheat software to improve his accuracy against players in-game. Jarvis says he would never use the cheat software in competitive game modes, and laments the fact that he'll never be able to play the game that grew his channel from 100,000 to 2 million subscribers since he began creating Fortnite videos last September.

The aimbot videos aren't online anymore, however stats on tracking website SocialBlade show that Jarvis lost 1.2 million video views on October 29, presumably after deleting the videos he was banned for.

In a statement provided to The Independent, Epic Games commented on the banning with: "We have a zero tolerance policy for the usage of cheat software. When people use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly."

Since his ban, fans of FaZe Jarvis have begun the #FreeJarvis campaign to attempt to reverse the lifetime ban, however the terms and conditions every player agrees to when installing the game specifically prevent them using any aim-enhancement technology.

Do you think FaZe Jarvis should have been banned for life for uploading aimbot videos to YouTube "for the laughs"?
