Fortnite developer Epic Games said the cheaters were “creating unauthorised derivative works of Fortnite by unlawfully modifying the game’s code”.

The company refused to comment on the active legal case, which was filed in the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Fortnite: Epic Games takes cheating seriously 

Epic Games said in a statement: “When cheaters use aimbots or other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly fortnite cheat codes xbox one.

“We take cheating seriously, and we’ll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players.”

In October, Epic Games took over anti-cheat software firm Kamu as part of its efforts to tackle unauthorised modifications to its games.

“We kick or ban players and machines based on the game being tampered with, cheat software found running while playing Fortnite, and other ways of cheating.

“We then kick users that play on machines associated with previously banned accounts to prevent cheaters from returning to Fortnite.

“This means if you share a machine with a roommate or sibling and he/she cheats, your account won’t be able to play on that machine either.

“You can play on a different machine though.

“While we won’t comment publicly, we have a team that investigates reports of false-positives (both ban and kick) found in our support and social channels (ie. our forums, reddit, etc.) to confirm our systems work as we expect.
