Epic filed civil complaints Tuesday against two alleged associates of Addicted Cheats, a website that provides aimbotting services to players. An "aimbot" gives an unfair advantage in competitive online shooters by automatically targeting opponents. The two defendants apparently used this service to kill Twitch streamers (a.k.a. "stream sniping") during matches in Fortnite's new PvP mode, Battle Royale. Epic Games claims they had to reverse-engineer and modify Fortnite's source code to do this, creating an unauthorized derivative work that's in violation of the Copyright Act.

Game developer and publisher Epic is taking ' Fortnite ' cheating very seriously. The two alleged cheaters are identified as Mr. Broom and Mr. Vraspir. Both are accused of violating Fortnite ’s terms of service and EULA by cheating .

Epic clearly weren’t messing around, and the two lawsuits they’ve filed accuse the two alleged cheaters - whose names on the lawsuits are Mr Broom and Mr Vraspir - of infringing on the game’s copyright by Epic Games have already banned "thousands" of cheaters from Fortnite Battle Royale.

One defendant was banned from Fortnite nine times, according to the complaint, but he registered other accounts under different names to continue playing. When asked why he stream snipes other players, he allegedly said, "Because its [sic] fun to rage and see streamers cry about how loaded they are and then get them stomped anyways."

In a statement to Kotaku, Epic Games says, "When cheaters use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly. We take cheating seriously, and we’ll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players."
