Where there is PvP, there will be cheating. That's probably the Second Law of Video Games, the first one being the "TTP Law": If you provide people with the ability to create within your game, they will create penises.
There are no penises in Fortnite: Battle Royale -- that we can see, at least -- but there are certainly cheaters, as there are in any other PvP game. And Epic Games is doing what it can to deal with them.
That's the primary topic of today's blog post for Fortnite, which addresses the thorny topic. As is usual, no details are given as to what methods are actually being taken -- security, yo -- but the company is "exploring every measure" and "rolling out tools" that have already led to thousands of bannings.
Of course, banning a free-to-play account that has no progression tied to it is a bit of an empty measure. But that will be changing soon, as account progression will be rolled out over the next several weeks.
You can report cheating activity via the Fortnite help page. Finally, a reminder: Just because someone kills you doesn't mean they're cheating. They're probably just better than you. That's the Third Law of Video Games.
