English term or phrase: aimbot
Definition from Computer Hope:
An aimbot is a software tool used in first-person shooting games that allow the player to shoot enemies without having to aim their weapon. Because this helps the player shoot more accurately with less skill, it is considered cheating

Example sentence(s):
  • But it's easy to see why people seek them out. One of the most popular aimbot programs sports a sleek website design and a one-time payment for a lifetime of use. Its site offers numerous videos showing off the hacks in action, enabling wallhacks and an aimbot for easy kills. PCGamer
  • However, the computer games lecturer also tells how many aimbots are actually programmed quite poorly, defeating the purpose of aiding the player altogether. “Depends on the implementation. Some aimbots make it almost impossible to aim in games (like GTA5). While others just take all the skill out,” Leinfellner says. discover.bot
  • Jarvis only used aimbots in non-competitive modes of Fortnite, in which he was playing ‘against’ fellow pro players who cooperated in the making of the video. inews
