    A cheating-software creator is facing a lawsuit dually from Riot Games and Bungie for producing hacks for Valorant and Destiny 2, among other video games, according to a complaint obtained by Polygon. Lawyers for Riot and Bungie filed the complaint in the Central District of California court on Friday, alleging that Cameron Santos of GatorCheats — as well as others — is trafficking in “a portfolio of malicious cheats and hacks.”

    Bungie and Riot allege that Santos and the GatorCheats staff sell and distribute their cheating software through a website, but also via email, Telegram, and Discord. The software provided is specifically designed to go undetected by Riot and Bungie’s anti-cheat technology systems. Access to the cheating software ranges from $90 per month, up to $500 to lifetime access to the cheat. Lawyers allege that GatorCheats has made “tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars” from the cheats. (Valorant cheats are quite a bit more expensive than Destiny 2 software, according to the complaint.)

    The software has different settings to allow players to tweak to their needs — like an “aimbot,” which improves a player’s aim, as well as cheats that show enemy health and equipment.
