Valorant Hacks: Cheater gets exposed in the quarter-finals of the TGS Signature Series
What felt like a wholesome $2,000 Valorant tournament soon turned into a fiasco when a hack user was exposed live during the quarter-finals.
Using cheats like aimbot and wallhacks are a common trope in any shooter tournament, and the Valorant TGS Signature Series was no stranger to this fact.
Valorant’s sophisticated anti-cheat software, Vanguard, may have solved a lot of the hacking issues for the game but the larger problem has not been eradicated from the game completely. This was evident in the TGS quarter-finals when a player, who goes by the tag of “Ryut”, was blatantly caught cheating.
Cheaters making their way to the Valorant pro scene
Twitch clip has gone viral in social media, and it shows that the Team Tokyo player was holding an angle in Haven’s double doors. With an enemy Reyna approaching, we can see his aimbot coming live when his crosshair immediately flicks to her head.
Ryut should technically not have any knowledge of Reyna’s position. There were no footstep audio cues or Sova or Cypher ability uses that revealed the enemy position. Yet, Ryut knew exactly where the player was.
Fortunately, even though Vanguard took its own sweet time, Ryut was ultimately caught and severely penalised. Since then the player has deleted his Discord and Twitter, and the only way he can play Valorant again is if he buys a completely new system.
