Can You Be Banned For Using Reshade Or An FPS Unlocker In Roblox?

On the Roblox Developer Forums, a thread popped up asking if using an FPS unlocker is against the general Terms of Service and if it was a bannable offense. Unfortunately, there was a bit of information spreading around this particular thread, with plenty of players mentioning that it could, in fact, result in a ban on your account.

Thankfully, a Roblox Staff member by the name of MrEakar stepped forward to clarify the situation and ensure that FPS Unlockers and Reshaders are not a bannable offense. While the thread is private and would require you to sign up and log in, a Roblox programmer by the name of ValiantWind screen capped the moment of clarification and began sharing it online.

With larger pages such as @Roblox_RTC and @MaximumADHD picking up on the news and spreading it to a larger audience, fans of the Roblox platform can rest assured that their FPS Unlockers and Reshaders will not result in their accounts being banned.

What Are FPS Unlockers And Reshaders

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, an FPS Unlocker allows gamers that have stronger computers to unlock the framerate for Roblox experiences. While the platform normally operates up to 60FPS, using an unlocker and get you into the 120FPS or higher range, making experiences run smoother than ever.

Reshaders, on the other hand, unlock new graphical options that can help your favorite games look like AAA titles launched by bigger developers. With a variety of tweaks available, you’ll have to do a double-take to see if you’re still playing Roblox or not.

With the tremendous amounts of creativity that already go into the Roblox platform, getting to mess around with things a little bit further can make things even more exciting. However, while peeking into the developer forums, it seems that some Unlockers and Reshaders are currently not working due to a new update to the Roblox platform, so you may need to wait a bit before trying them out for yourself.
