Videogame streamers are celebrities of the gaming business and for some, they serve as heroes to look up to. But happens when they’re caught cheating?
Here are a few streamers that were caught hacking and led their fans down.
xQc is among the most popular renowned Twitch broadcasters. His whole tenure, though, has not been without its bit of scandal. Even in the Fall Guys event, he’d been accused of cheating on at least one occasion. Stream sniping, an old-school method of hacking, was used by xQc instead of any suspicious application. Stream sniping is the act of watching someone else’s live stream from a separate monitor in order to get an advantage over that player.
With the help of his whole squad, xQc chose to take on the challenge. In addition, he committed the offense during GlitchCon, which is even more unfortunate. The platform acted quickly and discovered that a large number of others have been employing a similar approach. As a result, xQc has been temporarily banned.
2. FaZe Jarvis
Jarvis Khattri, referred commonly to as FaZe Jarvis, is a very well Fortnite gamer who competed in the Battle Royale event. He did things that were really risky, and it backfired very badly. He used an aim-bot to game Fortnite on a second profile. He wanted to demonstrate how much of an impact tweaking programs can make in a videogame, and that was his goal. However, Epic Games didn’t take things for granted, either. As a result, FaZe Jarvis will no longer be able to play Fortnite, EVER!!
He eventually apologized on YouTube, saying that it was a one-time demonstration and not meant to be taken any further. He went on to say that he wants to provide his followers with some entertaining material. However, the suspension hasn’t been lifted yet.
