During a live stream, an H1Z1 developer spawned a car next to a player accused of cheating to bait him into using his hacks.
H1Z1 is one of the first battle royale games to release, and while it is not as popular now as it once was, the title still has a place among Fortnite, PUBG, and Realm Royale.
It is often the aim of developers to ensure users the best experience possible by taking action against cheaters and banning players that use hacks.
When you die to someone in a questionable way it can ruin the gaming experience and make some users not want to play the game again.
Sometimes the devs will stream to give fans a look at what they do, how they handle cheaters and explain features to viewers.
Seeing users play from the perspective of a developer allows gamers transparency when someone is banned for hacking.
Often, players using aimbot can be easily spotted for their ability to hit very challenging shots with ease.
The only way for the developer to tell if someone is using aimbot is to watch them play, and spawning a car allowed the cheater to quickly move to a confrontation with an enemy player, so that little time was wasted examining the player in question.
Usually, it is safe to say that if you cheat you will eventually get caught.
