Fortnite Hackers in Season 8: Fortnite is a world popular game and its developer had taken all measures to decrease the number of hackers in-game. But on the other side, hackers are becoming increasingly dominant on several Fortnite accounts and the sellers of these hacks are earning crores of rupees per year. The article talks about the increasingly growing problem of hackers in a widely popular game, Fortnite.
Fortnite was launched by Epic Games in 2017. The game features a battle royale where 100 players compete to survive as the last man standing on a remote island. The game is overly popular and has a player following of over 550 million. However, Fortnite Season 8 is facing an ever-festering issue, namely, the growing problem of hacking. This issue has been talked about by various players and professionals in the game, including the Fortnite champion Bugha.
Due to the ongoing hacking issue in Fortnite, many players are choosing to quit the Arena, which is making it difficult for them to compete in tournaments. This issue has also affected the skills of many professional players. A common breeding ground of this is in the arena, a section where competitive modes are played and tournaments are hosted by Epic Games. Several hacks are used by Fortnite cheaters to get around anti-cheat security measures. They can use various methods to get in the game without being detected.
Although Fortnite is not the only place and every free-to-play game has the same problem of hackers. In 2021 itself players have reported seeing a massive rise in hackers in every battle royale title. Bugha, the Fortnite World Cup champion, had complained about how hackers were killing him by using unfair methods. This affected his gameplay and made it impossible for him to compete in tournaments. Bugha later deleted his post about the incident, but not before he posted a screenshot of his report which resulted in a hacker getting banned.
