It's insane but I think that's what happens when you use a well known game engine, people will know how to exploit them.

I don't understand how Epic could have included such a massive design flaw in an engine, and not fixed it in the 13 years since Unreal. Much less, how companies can continue to buy this engine and not fix it.
We've already banned scores of cheaters, nearly all through automatic detection. We continue to strengthen and improve our anti-cheat mechanisms each week -- and utlize a variety of techniques, not just one, to help identify and eliminate cheaters.
Many cheaters have been banned within the first match they joined (although others are banned at random intervals following detection).
The anti-cheat tools in this game will be state of the art, multi-faceted and better than or on par with probably any shooter on the market.
That said, 100% automatic detection is probably not possible. Unfortunately, the world is full of assholes.
So spectator mode, demo mode, votekick and improved "cheat reporting" features are coming very soon, which will give the community better ways to help weed out cheaters as well. Private servers will have additional self-policing features.
We treat this subject seriously.

And so they do... I wonder how quickly they will find ways to bypass those checks (if they already haven't).

The cat and mouse games begin.
I'm brimming with confidence...
