FaZe Jarvis and his long history with Fortnite bans

FaZe Clan’s Jarvis was one of the most popular Fortnite creators back in the day. He was undoubtedly a skillful player and did not require hacking to yield better results.

Regardless, the YouTuber released some videos while playing with cheating software like aim-bot, weapon detection, and player detection. Even though all these videos were simply experimental from a newbie account, Epic Games quickly banned FaZe Jarvis from Fortnite.

To his astonishment, even his primary account, which he had spent a lot of money on, was also terminated from the game.

Apparently, Epic Games does not tolerate the promotion of cheating and hacking, even as a joke.

Most recently, FaZe Jarvis streamed Fortnite after a year’s break, only for that account to be promptly banned as well.

Vanguard Kez

In Chapter 2 Season 1, Vanguard Kez, Stable Ronaldo, and Avery had won the FNCS Season Finals in NA East. While Ronaldo and Avery have now become even more successful Fortnite pros, Vanguard Kez’s career came to an abrupt end in December 2020.

While playing the Frosty Frenzy tournament, Epic Games kicked Kez out in the middle of a game. Soon after, a Twitter user and a fellow pro named Sebby accused Kez of buying soft aim cheats. To this day, fans haven’t been able to witness Kez in competitive tournaments.

Kquid, the 14-year-old Fortnite pro from Australia

The competitive scene in Fortnite currently comprises some of the youngest Esports athletes in the world. One such prodigy was Kquid. This 14-year-old pro player had won several tournaments in the Oceania region and had even placed fifth in the Australian Open.

In a surprising turn of events, Epic Games banned Kquid indefinitely during a tournament. As expected, the pro defended himself by saying that he had borrowed a friend’s PC for some games. The drama soon aggravated when another pro named Serpent exposed Kquid for using aim-bot. Ever since, the community hasn’t witnessed Kquid’s return.
