Valorant’s anti-cheat system, Vanguard, has delivered a live ban to a player using third-party cheating software during a scrim against the female Dignitas roster.
What’s even more surprising is the fact that the banned player ‘ReFelcktions’ was ranked 7 in the North American leaderboards of the competitive shooter at the time of his ban.
The news was shared by professional Valorant player and streamer, Amanda “Rain” Smith, in a Tweet on January 26th.
Vanguard’s HWID ban means that the banned player will be unable to play Valorant through any means unless he buys a new computer.
This goes on to show that Valorant’s Vanguard is still actively working to keep the number of cheaters in check. The anti-cheat system by Riot has been under fire from the community recently for not being able to catch a good number of cheaters who have managed to rise through the leaderboards by unfair means.
