UPDATE: Aitzy has released a statement clearing his name, with conformation that his ban has been overturned by PUBG Corp following an internal investigation. He will return to action in the PUBG Europe League on June 21. 


FaZe Clan's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds pro Ludvik 'Aitzy' Jahnsen has allegedly been banned from playing the game on popular media platform Steam due to cheating.

Norwegian pro Aitzy joined FaZe Clan back in November of 2018, and is the youngest player on the PUBG team. He helped the team win the OGA PUBG PIT Invitational S2, and grab second place at the PGL PUBG Fall Invitational 2018.

The battle royale star is now faced with controversy however, after allegations of him being banned from playing the game on Steam surfaced.

The cheating allegations

The unlawful allegations were brought to light by esports professional Rod 'Slasher' Breslau, who tweeted about the situation on June 20.

"Just in: FaZe professional PUBG esports player Aitzy has been game banned for cheating on Steam," he tweeted, alongside two screenshots of Aitzy's Steam page, showing he has an in-game ban.

Slasher later reinforced the legitimacy of the alleged ban, stating that a direct source told him it's true, tweeting, "Aitzy's ban is legitimate and was made directly by PUBG Corporation/Bluehole, a league source confirms to me."

If the allegations against Aitzy are in fact true, this could mean major bad news for the FaZe Clan member. 

Cheating in a game you're supposed to be a professional at isn't a great look, so who knows what could happen to his career if there's truth to the situation.

We'll keep you updated with any new information should it come to light.
