Dakotaz shocked as he gets blatant Fortnite hacker instantly banned

Popular Fortnite streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz‘ Hoffman was left stunned after watching a player he had reported for hacking receive an in-game ban mere seconds later.

While it may be the most popular battle royale title around, Fortnite hasn’t always been completely perfect or free from issues – we’ve seen plenty of glitches and bugs that have turned players away.

And, with that popularity, comes players who want to hack and ruin the experience for others. It’s a hard battle to fight, even if you are consistent with updates and have your own game launchers, but it certainly helps when some of the popular streamers provide evidence during their broadcasts. 

Epic GamesFortnite has cemented itself as the top battle royale title around – but it isn’t completely perfect.

During his October 3 stream, the popular Fortnite player had been partaking in some duo matches when he was eliminated by a pretty suspicious player who started hitting other players with insane accuracy.

Instead of heading out to the lobby and resetting himself, the streamer stuck around to watch them in action alongside his duo partner for the game. “I got a bad feeling about this guy, we’re going to watch this guy,” Dakotaz told his stream.

As the stream continued, the player in question racked up a further 16 kills – including some questionable, jumping eliminations with the minigun around the Loot Lake and Salty Springs areas. 

Instead of letting it slide, Dakotaz brought up the in-game report function and decided to see if Epic Games would do something about it. Within seconds of him dropping a “Hacking 100%” report, the suspicious player was struck by the banhammer – leaving the streamer, his duo partner, and Twitch viewers stunned.

“Woah! What the hell,” the streamer called out. “Yo, I just reported him and he got banned. What the hell? I legit just reported him and I have like powers or something bro – I literally just banned him dude.”

While it isn’t quite the lengths that fellow streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has gone to in calling Epic during his stream, it appears as if the developers aren’t against watching the action live and banning people pretty instantly.

It should probably serve as a warning to anyone who has ever thought about cheating – someone is always watching.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
