Epic has started suing YouTubers for promoting and selling Fortnite cheats

A Fortnite YouTuber is being sued by developer Epic Games for cheating. 

Brandon Lucas is the owner of YouTube channel Golden Modz, where he frequently posts videos of himself hacking and trolling players to his 1.7 million subscribers.

Lucas also sells cheats to fans and fellow players on a separate website, one of his best-sellers being an aimbot. The cheats are sold to individuals for £150 a pop and only work with the PC version of Fortnite.

Another YouTuber by the name of Colton Conter was also named in the case.

"Defendants are cheaters. Nobody likes a cheater," Epic Games said in its legal filing.

"Defendant Lucas not only cheats, but he also promotes, advertises, and sells software that enables those who use it to cheat."
