I wonder more why people would bother cheating in a online battle royale. There's no money in it, there's no sense of pride and accomplishment if you win by cheating.

Some people get a feeling of pride from being able to screw other people. Also, some people cheat just for fun. It something to do.

But, yeah, it doesn't do anything for me. I wanna win fair and square. If I can't do that, I'd rather lose.

Its probably mosttly PC players. One of the reasons I stick with consoles.

Damn, that's almost as much players as some cheap Indie games sell life time.
