The problem of cheating in online video games is one of the major aspects that developers often find themselves struggling to counter. While Riot Games had promised a world-class anti-cheat system for their competitive shooter Valorant, it seems like modern cheat developers are becoming a cause of concern for them. 

Riot has teamed up with Bungie to take actions against one such cheat distribution website – GatorCheats, that provides players with cheats for Valorant and Destiny 2 for a price ranging from $90 per month to $500 for a lifetime subscription.

As initially reported by Polygon, Riot and Bungie raised a complaint in the court of California claiming that the damages done by GatorCheats “may amount to millions of dollars.”


“Cheating undermines a game’s competitive integrity and erodes community trust,” a Riot spokesperson told Polygon. “Riot is wholly committed to upholding these values for its players, so when we become aware of a cheat maker, you bet we’re going to go after them.”

This isn’t the first time GatorCheats is under fire from Bungie. The company behind Destiny 2 had previously issued a cease and desist to GatorCheats following which it shut down their website but continued supporting the cheating system for those who already purchased it.

It’s also being suspected that the cheat developers are continuing to distribute their hacks through other platforms.
