We all know that at some point in our lives we might have used one or two cheats in video games. But, the thing is, I personally did it offline and it didn't cause any unfair advantage over others. Now that I look at it, I don't feel good about it and usually return to these games and play them properly.
Unfortunately, this is not the case for R. Kreibich, the German gamer who developed a game-breaking hack for Paragon. To make things worse, he was selling it and making quite a fortune. When Epic Games got their hands on this information they went on the hunt to find this hacker (I would call him a gamer, but I don't want to insult people who play games as intended, fair and for fun).
It seems the hack was granting its user with an aimbot, trigger bot, 3D and 2D radar. Additionally, these cheats were highly protected, making them harder to detect. But, fortunately, Epic Games is now suing the German hacker.
Polygon further revealed, "The hack was advertised on a hacking and cheats site as the 'world's most powerful hack for Paragon.'" It's really sad to see such an epic game almost getting ruined by some silly person's cheats who thought it would be great to get rich from the suffering of honest players.
Let's just say, what goes around comes around and we hope Epic Games will recover from this fast.
