Cheaters who are caught are banned immediately from Challengermode. Their Steam Accounts are also banned from further use on Challengermode.  

At Challengermode, cheating is not only against our rules of fair play. It’s considered fraudulent behavior and a crime since money is involved. Cheaters may be reported to the proper national authorities and fined. 

At a minimum, any money still left on the accounts of banned cheaters will be donated to free prize pools or used to further develop the games and features on Challengermode.
