A group of high-level Fallout 76 players who called themselves the “gay eliminators” have been banned from the multiplayer-only title after following and killing another team. According to one of the victims, the incident began after ringleader “NathanTheHicc” was told his character looked “cute.” Advising he “don't fu*k with that homo sh*t,” he later launched an attack, stating he wanted to “decontaminate the AIDS.” Bethesda initially banned the harassers for three days but made it permanent after reviewing the footage. "I got really angry too. These guys were running around targeting people and what if they targeted a kid playing that was struggling with their identity? What if they said all those things to someone that was playing solo and didn't have anyone to talk to? That can really mess someone up. Playing a game to escape reality and then that happens. That's why we need to be able to report these people and why companies need to do something about reports."
