Fortnite update includes smoke grenades, new leaderboards and Xbox One X patch

Meanwhile, Epic potentially faces litigation from PUBG Corp over the similarities between PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite's "Battle Royale" mode. In response, the boy's mother filed a legal note tearing down Epic's lawsuit and calling for it to be thrown out. Epic Games responded by banning cheating accounts and suing the worst offenders. Rogers then proceeded to challenge this takedown request, which put Epic into the position of either dropping the claim or file a suit against him, with the latter being the company's choice.

It would appear however, that Epic Games isn't familiar with Delaware's laws, One of which is that it is against DE law to publish names on minors, and that he is unlikely to be the developer/distributor of the cheating tools because of his age. Epic Games INC did not request his age prior to the EULA agreement, they did not request parental consent, nor did they request an "E-Signature" from their users. Additionally, Fortnite Battle Royale now supports the Xbox One X, adding sharper textures, better reflections, and 4k support. In fact, the boy even made a second YouTube video in which he admitted to using the software, live streaming himself cheating, and refusing to take the initial video down. The developers are now taking a 14-year-old kid into court for the exact same reason. Epic makes a teenager "scapegoat", because it is not able to cope with cheaters. While their offense in the case is not noted as cheating, Epic Games claims that they allegedly "unlawfully modif [ied] Fortnite's software so that he has an unfair competitive advantage over other Fortnite players" and that he "use [d] cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game". It's also up in the air right now whether Epic really plans on following through. You want to take it to cheaters, but the reality is, a large portion of them are just kids who don't understand what they're potentially getting themselves into. For children with unfettered access to the internet, this is an especially troublesome gray area resulting in a minefield for parents and corporations alike. But these hacks do have a harmful effect on an online game community by undermining the integrity of a title's fair and level playing field.

Fortnite's popularity has also seen the rise of cheating as well, which Epic has taken a no-tolerance policy on.
