New Fortnite Ban Wave Has Started, Here Is How To Avoid It

A new Fortnite ban wave has started. This is the first ban wave of Chapter 3 – Season 4 and we can expect many more to come. Epic Games has a zero-tolerance policy for those who break rules, which is why many players have been banned so far.

The latest Fortnite ban is permanent. This means that if your account gets affected by it, you will lose it for good and won’t be able to get it back.

This article will reveal everything we know about the latest Fortnite ban wave and what you can do to avoid it.

Latest Fortnite ban wave affects thousands of players

When Fortnite Chapter 3 – Season 4 was just released, Epic Games announced several new rules regarding the game. These new rules are intended to provide a level playing field for all Fortnite players, which is great.

With the new season, Epic has published a list of restricted hardware. This list contains devices that Fortnite Battle Royale players are not allowed to use.

So far, Epic Games has added two devices to this list, Cronus Zen and Cronus Max. These devices give a huge advantage to Fortnite players over their enemies, which is why they’ve been restricted.

Cronus Zen is extremely hard to detect, but once Epic Games’ anti-cheat system detects it, players who use it will be kicked from the match. If they try to bypass it, they will be permanently banned.

Here is what Epic posted in an official blog post:

Starting this Season, players who use restricted devices that provide, or are intended to provide, a competitive advantage may receive an in-game warning. … Attempts to bypass this restriction will result in a permanent ban from Fortnite.

Cronus Zen allows players to connect different controllers to their gaming consoles. It also allows connecting a keyboard and mouse. However, the reason why the device has received a Fortnite ban is that it allows modding.

By using Cronus Zen, Fortnite players can basically get an aimbot, which is not allowed. For more information regarding restricted devices, please read this blog post by Epic.

False information

There are a lot of comments online that claim that Epic Games does not ban Fortnite Battle Royale players for using Cronus Zen. However, this information is completely false.

The truth is that some users of the device haven’t been hit with a Fortnite ban yet.

Detecting Cronus Zen is extremely hard, which is why some players have avoided a Fortnite ban so far. However, it’s just a matter of time before they are caught by Epic Games and permanently banned.

Please keep in mind that you shouldn’t use restricted devices on any account. There is always a chance that Epic will ban your gaming device or your IP address.
