Riot Games and Bungie continue to fight cheaters in their multiplayer games. However, the fight against cheating in Valorant and Destiny 2 is not just about banning specific players, but especially about finding the authors of software that allows players to cheat.
In this case, it should be the person selling the cheats under the nickname GatorCheats. In a joint lawsuit, the company’s lawyers accuse her of selling and distributing malicious software that allows players to gain an unfair advantage in competitive games.
According to the server Polygon Riot and Bungie filed a lawsuit in California County Court. GatorCheats, or its owner Cameron Santos, was to earn tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling cheats. The fraudulent software was offered as a subscription, with players paying $ 90 in one month (about two thousand crowns), $ 250 a quarterly subscription, and $ 500 for those who could spend $ 200 on a lifetime access to the cheat.
According to the lawsuit, the program allowed the players to win without any effort, it included, among other things, an autoaim, the revelation of the opponent’s position and many other benefits. According to the lawsuit, the cheats violate a license agreement that directly prohibits cheating. In addition, they allegedly violate the law by circumventing the anti-theater protection of games.
Specifically, Bungie has previous experience with GatorCheats. Santos should have agreed in the past to stop selling Destiny 2 cheats after the company threatened to sue. He allegedly did not do so and continues to offer them on his website in the password-only section.
Companies are demanding several million dollars in damages as a result of the loss of user confidence and the associated lower profits, as well as the cost of fraudulent searches and anti-cheat solutions. The lawsuit emphasizes that both Destiny 2 and Valorant can be played for free, and both games earn money by selling items that players are only interested in if they have a positive experience with the game, which is prevented from meeting cheaters.
At the same time, Riot and Bungie are not the only companies fighting specifically with GatorCheats. Last September, he was contacted by Activision lawyers to commit not to offer cheats for any game in their portfolio. Santos then argued that a possible lawsuit against gaming corporations could not afford due to the cost of the proceedings.
