Fortnite streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has weighed in on the news from this week that Fortnite pro Faze Jarvis received a lifetime ban for cheating in the game. The company that created Fortnite, Epic Games, has clear rules when it comes to cheating, which Khattri recently violated. He revealed the ban and confessed to cheating in a tearful YouTube video posted Sunday.

In an apology movie posted Sunday, Jarvis explained that he obtained the ban after using aimbots, a form of in-game cheat that will allow gamers to immediately objective at opponents, enormously growing taking pictures accuracy. Aimbot software allows players to automatically aim at other players, which boosts accuracy immensely.

Kaye would later explain in an emotional six-minute video that he never used the aimbot in competitive play.

Jarvis Kaye is a 17-year-old professional video game player living in a $21 million Hollywood Hills mansion. "He uploaded an apology video and he was set", Ninja said.

"Genuinely, I don't even know what I was thinking", he said. "You should never do it, it's just such a dumb thing to do".

He is dubbed by many as the "best Fortnite player in the world".

Jarvis is not the first to be banned from Fortnite for dishonest, but his punishment is undoubtedly amongst the most critical.

In a statement to Metro.co.uk, FaZe Clan said: 'FaZe Clan is a strong advocate for the rules and regulations of our industry. "But the question at hand here is whether or not he should be permanently banned-for life".

Kaye's video shows him using cheating software, as well as associating cheating on Fortnite with entertainment.

Like all other games, these details give players an insight into what they can expect with new updates including new items and whether or not their favorite weapon is no longer usable.

Gamers Damion "XXiF" Cook and Ronald "Ronaldo" Mach were banned from playing for two weeks in May after colluding with other players in Fortnite World Cup qualifying rounds.

Khattri took it upon himself to announce the ban to his subscribers in an apology video released on November 3. The majority of responses condemn the young pro's actions.

"It's obvious that I made a massive mistake". "Don't cheat, grief, team, or exploit bugs and game outcome impacting glitches". This has since given way to discussion about the severity of the punishment and whether content creators whose livelihoods depend on these games should be banned at all. "Action taken can be anything from a warning for less severe offenses, all the way up to a permanent account ban". While playing, Khattri noted on several occasions that he didn't want to be banned for using cheats. "I'm so disappointed in myself for doing this, and not thinking about, like, the consequences that could happen".

'It's insane to know I can never play Fortnite again or create content for you guys, ' he said. I just wish I had known how badly I was messing up'. "But we remain hopeful and stand ready to work with Epic Games in any way possible to come up with opportunity that allows Jarvis to play again at some point in his life".

When IGN reached out to Epic Games for a comment on the situation, the developers reiterated its zero-tolerance policy for cheating.
