Cheaters, hackers, and players who use different mods to play games are plaguing the gaming scene. From Fortnite to Call of Duty Warzone, these cheaters are everywhere. Recently, we witnessed how they are getting more brazen every day. For instance, some set up their cheat mods while live-streaming!
This has led to the entire community vocally striking down on game developers and their anti-cheat policies. Epic Games, Infinity Ward, Riot Games, they are all big names and everyone expects them to encourage fair play.
Lately, cheaters have been ambushing players in Fortnite tourneys too. Warzone has always had a major issue with the volume of hackers in the lobby.
Is this what eSports is coming down to?
Jarvis from FaZe Clan is still banned on Fortnite. It seems ridiculous how many cheaters get away without a scratch while innocent pros are banned. Many agree that Jarvis has already served his time with a long absence.
Nevertheless, anti-cheat divisions have to tighten up in order to facilitate and encourage fair play.

@ERA7E clipped one of these moments on Twitch and put it on Twitter for the world to see. It seems cheaters are now actually showing off their tricks live on stream.
@DougisRaw retweeted this and mentioned how the cheater’s Twitch page was still active.
And I can still open up his Twitch page because?…… Yikes https://t.co/SJUpBgU6Fe

Twitch has a serious TOS when it comes to streaming, but what is its stance on cheating? We can ask the same of Infinity Ward and Activision.
Lately, several cheaters have been getting away scot-free and no one is doing anything about it.
Professional players and streamers bearing the brunt of it
The flip side of popularity is staying under surveillance 24/7. That is the curse of being a pro player or a streamer. Sadly, streamers like DrDisrespect and Jarvis are being banned from platforms and games without ever cheating.
This raises a serious question. What is happening to the real cheaters? Why are the pros always at the receiving end of punishments? Instead of criticizing, the best we can do is put forth all these problems to facilitate necessary actions.
