Gamers and Fortnite fans have recently been accusing Nate Hill, a professional Fortnite player for FaZe Clan, of cheating in the first week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish.

In the first week of the Fortnite Battle Royale Fall Skirmish, FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill was playing duos with FunkBomb, his partner – when FunkBomb died, it was all up to him to go for the win.

During the Fall Skirmish, Epic Games made it a rule to immediately leave the game when eliminated in order to reduce server lag and make the game fairer for those who were still alive and on the battlegrounds, but FunkBomb decided to take advantage of this.

Instead of waiting for his partner to win or lose, FunkBomb decided to help out Nate Hill by tuning into the official Fortnite stream on Twitch – which had practically no stream delay – and aid his teammate with callouts.

A lot of players called out Nate Hill and FunkBomb for this – but admittedly, FunkBomb did mention how he thought it might be cheating then proceeded to immediately stop.
However, due to the backlash, Nate Hill decided to comment on the accusations made by Fortnite fans and viewers.
In a reddit post, he expressed his opinion on the matter:
“Funk made a mistake and he owns up to it, but those calling for him to be perma-banned and calling him a scumbag couldn’t be more misinformed. It was a mistake made by an otherwise great guy/player. He felt bad before anyone caught him cheating and self Reported to Epic. That is not the trait of a scumbag, that is someone being honest forthcoming and owning up to their mistakes.”
