​‘Fortnite’ Pro Dobbed In For Cheating By The Person Who Made The Cheats

Fortnite pro Jonathan Kosmala has been dropped by his esports team, Team Kaliber, after it was revealed to the organisation that he had been cheating.

Team Kaliber and Kosmala had been competing in the Fortnite World Cup, trying to get in on some of the $30 million up for grabs, when cheat maker CBV released a video saying Kosmala was cheating.

The cheat Kosmala was using would allowed him to see players' locations, even through walls. Making it very hard to catch him unawares.

While CBV is fine with people cheating in public games, beating up on non-cheating players, he has a problem with someone cheating in a contest when money is up for grabs.

"[Kosmala's] intentions were not to cheat in the video game, and you know, have fun, looking for a stream, stomp pubs - but to win money and scam other players who are playing legitimately," he says (via Polygon).

"At that point it just comes down to morals."

Do you think CBV was right to dob in Kosmala? It any more moral to cheat against public players? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
