Riot Games and Bungie join forces to sue creator of Destiny 2 and Valorant cheat software

When I saw this story cross our news room, I immediately envisioned Guardians and Agents clapping hands together and very possibly pumping their arms as they prepare to fight against cheating software. That’s a bit like what Riot Games and Bungie have done as the two studios are joining forces to file a lawsuit against the creator of a cheating software suite for Valorant and Destiny 2.

The suit, which was filed this past Friday, is against Cameron Santos, the creator of GatorCheats, a cheating software that includes tools like an aimbot and the ability to see enemy health and equipment among other features. GatorCheats costs $90 a month or as much as $500 for lifetime access and has made Santos “tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars” according to the filing. The companies are seeking to shut down the software developer, access a full accounting of all sales and services for the software, and be awarded statutory and punitive damages.

This isn’t the first time that Bungie has attacked cheat software, as the studio had forced another cheat software maker to close up shop. As for Valorant, Riot Games has been fighting cheaters (and player perceptions) for some time in the shooter and was all too eager to join in the suit. “When we become aware of a cheat maker, you bet we’re going to go after them,” said a Riot spokesperson.

That cheat creator got too greedy and too dumb. You just don’t sell your cheats directly from website, especially if you are located in a country where you can get easily sued for that. The best way to distribute your cheat is through less direct channels, only using private Discord servers and Telegram to communicate with customers, preferably using third-party resellers, and payment methods which do not expose people’s credit card and private information.

Anyway, it’s good to see this being shut down but this won’t really decrease cheaters in a significant way, it will just make more cheat creators to be more careful when it comes to selling stuff.

Gotta be tough as a cheat maker.. I mean you want your products to get popular but you can’t let them get TOO popular you know. You gotta stay in the middle, where you make enough to pay for your beer, but not so much to catch the devs attention.

This reminds me of Ninja.pyx bot for Black Desert, which was sued by Pearl Abyss.
Source of the software was also submitted to PA.
