Paragon developer Epic Games has filed a lawsuit against a modder who created a cheat system for its MOBA.

Robin Kreibich advertised his software as “the world’s most powerful hack for Paragon”, with features including an aimbot, triggerbot, radars to easily locate enemy players in the game and custom controls specifically designed to make the mod harder to detect by anti-cheating countermeasures, Polygon reports.

The platform was sold through a subscription model and launched in March of this year, with Kreibich posting videos of the cheats to YouTube to promote the product.

At the start of June, Epic requested DMCA takedowns of the videos, to which Kreibich responded by reposting them.

In turn, Epic issued a lawsuit for copyright infringement, unfair competition and breaching Paragon’s EULA, seemingly justified by its attempts to remove the videos advertising the software.

The studio is pursuing compensation for damages and costs, plus the destruction of all copies of the hack.
