A fraudulent software maker is facing a lawsuit from Riot Games and Bungie for producing hacks Valorant and Fate 2, including video games, according to a complaint obtained by Polygon. Lawyers for Riot and Bungie filed the lawsuit in the Central District of California on Friday, alleging that Cameron Santos of GatorCheats – as well as others – is trading in “a portfolio of malicious cheats and hacks.”
Bungie and Riot claim that Santos and GatorCheats employees sell and distribute their cheat software via a website, but also via email, Telegram and Discord. The software provided is specifically designed to be undetected by Riot and Bungie̵
The software has various settings to allow players to adapt to their needs – such as an “aimbot”, which improves the player’s goals, as well as cheats that show the enemy’s health and equipment.
Bungie has previously given GatorCheats a discontinuation notice; The cheat developer reportedly reported to players that it would stop selling the software, but supports the cheat system for those who have already purchased it. Bungie’s lawyers claim that GatorCheats still sells the software on a private part of the GatorCheats website.
Riot and Bungie said that damages “could amount to millions of dollars” in damage caused by the companies to GatorCheats software. They are looking to the court to close the operation, citing alleged trafficking in fraudulent software and intentional interference with players who break contracts, as well as unfair competition.
Polygon has contacted Bungie, Riot and GatorCheats for more information.
In recent years, we’ve seen many video game developers and publishers take on hack creators – from several lawsuits from Nintendo to those from Activision, Epic Games and Ubisoft, on Friday, Pokémon Go Niantic is set to sue Global ++ for $ 5 million, according to TorrentFreak.
