Macros, single buttons that let you pull off multiple actions, are defined as cheating.

You will get banned if caught.

Fortnite Stream Sniping

Support-a-creator Eligibility Risks

Epic is also reminding players that conduct outside of in-game actions could land them in trouble.

If you promote third-party vendors (anyone other than epic) selling outfits or accounts then you could have your SAC code revoked as it breaks Terms Of Service and the Creator Code Of Conduct.

Fortnite Account Name

Finally, Epic Games are taking hits at accounts using inappropriate account names.

Changing your name to one deemed inappropriate before a tournament will see you get disqualified and repeat offenders will receive permanent competitive bans.
