‘Fortnite’ Player FaZe Jarvis Banned For Life For Using Illegal Aimbots

Fornite means the world to some people, so you can imagine how wounded FaZe Jarvis is for being banned from the game for life.

The 17-year-old revealed that Epic Games had punished him for using “aimbots” during a casual, non-competetive game that he streamed on his YouTube channel.

Jarvis admitted to using the hack which allows users to auto-focus their weapons during an apology video.

Jarvis also said that he was banned from playing the game or attending any Fortnite conventions for life as a result. He claims he wasn’t aware that the consequences would be so drastic, especially since he never used aimbots during competitive games. 

“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,” he said. “It didn’t even cross my mind to think that I could be banned for life from Fortnite from those videos. I just want to be clear that this is the first time that I have ever done anything like this and of course I have never done this in a competitive game mode at all.”

A chunk of his gamer friends and fans have come out in support of Jarvis, even starting a hashtag in a bid to get the ban lifted.


One wrote: “So people cheat in the world cup qualifiers for a chance at 3 million dollars and a guaranteed $50k and only get 2 week bans … then Jarvis does something little for fun for content for his channel and he gets perma banned? wtf man shit isnt right.”

What do you think? Is this too harsh? He is just a kid after all. Or maybe he should get a different job? Decisions, decisions.

A sad day for the gaming world.
