Epic Games employee exposed to Fortnite updates leak, creator codes disabled, and more
A YouTube channel called Epic Corruption has exposed a Russian Epic Games employee for allegedly leaking Fortnite updates, disrupting creator codes, selling exclusive cosmetics, revealing creator payments and more.
The video claims that Epic Games employee Alexey Gromsky, better known online as Loud Noise, has been sharing information about upcoming Fortnite updates with a number of top Russian content creators since he started working on the game in 2018.

It is alleged that Gromsky will disable Creator Codes just a day before the next payout is due to “trolling the creators”.
According to the video, Gromsky often asked Russian creators (with whom he shared information) for money: “I help you, I stand for you, I prevent your tags from being removed. I share the leaks with you, so I don’t mind some financial help.” It appears that the money was used for Gromsky’s vacation with Russian content creators.
In the summer of 2021, Streamlabs hosted an event where they sent redeemable codes to Fortnite creators so they could be given away to viewers. Once Gromsky learned about this, he is said to have told his Russian creative friends to give him the tokens so that he could sell them on the black market.

Gromsky’s friends maps were also promoted on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter through posts from official Fortnite accounts. The employee also allegedly used his developer tools to copy entire islands of successful mapmakers so that his friends could copy them. The video claims that A Russian creator uses three different Epic Games accounts (all with their own creator code) to post different maps. Gromsky then promotes these maps using the official Fortnite social media, avoiding any doubt thanks to the different names used on each account and generating Support-a money -Creator in the process.
