Fortnite enforces lifetime ban of cheating player despite tearful apology

Fortnite developer Epic Games has stood by its decision to permanently ban a player for cheating in the video game.

Jarvis Kaye, 17, released an emotional video apologising for using the aimbot software when playing the game, which makes it easier to shoot and kill opponents without taking careful aim.

The member of eSports team FaZe Clan broke down in tears as he explained to his two milliion YouTube subscribers that he would no longer be able to play Fortnite or create Fortnite-related content for his channel.
