The latest FPS PC game made by Riot Games, Valorant, takes firm action against its first cheat user. Valorant revealed that his party had banned a player who was caught using a cheat. This blocking was carried out after a player who was able to prove the existence of the first cheater in Valorant then reported it to Riot Games.
Sure enough, after a further examination it turned out that the Valorant game had been attacked by players using illegal programs. This was revealed by Paul Chamberlain from the Riot Games programmer and anti-cheat division. It is known that there are 2 types of cheats used by cheaters to destroy the game, namely Wallhacks and AIM Hacks.
Inevitably, the recording of the player’s playing tricks immediately spread on social media, especially Twitter. For this incident Paul said that his party had officially banned his first permanent ban. Paul reminded that it seems that this case will not be the last case for Valorant, it is possible that a similar case will occur again in the near future.

The case of finding the first cheater in the Valorant game will be a major blow to Riot Games. Because at the beginning of the opening, Riot Games had boasted that the Valorant game would be safe from intruders, even Riot had introduced a new anti-cheat system called Vanguard. This new system is expected to be able to withstand the entry of cheaters into the game when it is officially launched.
But the facts say differently, it doesn’t take long for cheaters to break through the security of Valorant’s anti-cheat system, which is heralded even though it’s still in beta. The Valorant gamers community regretted this incident. According to them, Riot Games did not keep its promise.
Riot’s journey to rid Valorant of illegal program interference still seems like a very long one. Because in addition to fighting cheat users, Riot must also fight against the illegal act of buying and selling Valorant game accounts by users who already have access to the closed beta period.
The number of players who managed to get free access to play during the closed beta period made them tempted to trade their accounts. In fact, Riot has provided access to Valorant players during this closed beta period for free.
Well it sucks, but today we had to ban our first cheater (and it looks like more bans are on the horizon).
I was hoping for a little more time before this fight kicked off but we’re in it now and we’re ready.

Information on the sale and purchase of Valorant beta accounts is circulating in various places such as Discord, Reddit, eBay, to Twitch. Riot threatened to impose permanent bans on the accounts that were indicated to have carried out the sale and purchase. Riot asks players to jointly protect Valorant by using legitimate means if they want to get closed beta access.
The efforts made by Riot by first banned from the cheater’s account received a positive response from fans of the Valorant game. However, not a few gamers have also asked Riot to evaluate its anti-cheat system so that the program is truly capable of detaining cheaters.
We’ve banned a pile of VALORANT closed beta account sellers and botters to free up more entitlements. Tracking more. Don’t buy accounts, you might lose them!

Cheater is indeed a classic problem that has never been resolved, its existence which is always present in every best online game makes it difficult to get rid of it. Many game developers seem to be helpless because these cheaters continue to grow from time to time.
Cheats do benefit users, but are very detrimental to other players who choose to finish the game on their own instead of taking shortcuts by playing cheating. If you meet a cheater in the game, don’t hesitate to report it so the publisher can block them immediately.
