The first CHEATER gets banned from Valorant, just 2 days into closed Beta

Valorant, the new FPS title from Riot Games, has just banned its first cheater ever, that too when the game is just 2 days into closed beta. Cheating is a problem in FPS games, and it always has been a cat and mouse game between developers and cheaters who find new ways to cheat in the game. But it seems that the game has begun a little too early.

Its commendable that the developers were ready to handle the cheating problem even in such an early stage.

The news of the ban was conveyed via twitter by Paul Chamberlain, who is the programmer and anti-cheat lead for Valorant. It was also indicated that many more bans are soon to follow.

With such a fast response, it seems that in the near future, Valorant is clearly having an edge over other games like CSGO when it comes to Anti Cheat, and taking action against cheaters, and this edge might be one of the reasons why Valorant might be successful in taking a chunk of the player base from other games because cheating is a huge problem when it comes to FPS games.

So what do you think about the aggressive stand Riot Games is taking for cheating in Valorant, should other gaming companies like Valve follow suit?
