Professional Fortnite player Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf  reacted recently to cheating allegations and controversy surrounding a popular Youtuber SerpentAU.

The most recent accusation of cheating found SerpentAU, a Youtuber from Australia, as the recipient of claims that he used an aim-bot, macros, and faked clips. SerpentAU's popularity resulted in a lot of big names responding to his statement defending himself from the allegations. You can watch his statement here.

Tfue took to Twitter to respond to SerpentAU critiquing his statement, advising him to remake a video with a handcam to prove he wasn't faking his clips.

Fortnite's Bugha Responds to Serpent's Cheating Controversy

Bugha responded to these claims himself with some shock saying, "He confessed? What do you mean he confessed?" Serpent, in his defense video confessed to using macros, but as Bugha mentioned, many people who use macros don't realize or believe that it actually is cheating.

Macros allow players to do complex multi-input tasks with one only input, and they are against the rules in Fortnite. Even though some prominent pro players share the belief that many macros don't influence the game to a large extent, players are still liable to get banned if found to be using them. Whether or not you believe that macros are cheating or not, it's fairly dishonest to be creating content on Youtube without disclosing a use of macros.
