PUBG Mobile players have often complained about playing against opponents who are using cheats or some form of hacked version. The game has struck down hackers with its Ban Pan 2.0 update which aims to clean out the game and level the playing field. PUBG Mobile has installed the Fog of War anti-cheat technology, creating a safe environment for players.
PUBG Mobile permanently suspended 151,951 accounts for cheating and 32,155 online cheat ads with 127,846,609 followers and views in Week 19. The bulk of the accounts which were banned were from the Bronze and Ace ranks. PUBG has also removed more than 20,000 YouTube videos and 11,284 Instagram accounts and other videos from Tiktok and Facebook for cheating content.
The Fog of War cheat detection system monitors the region and only relays information that is visible to the client. The game also has a Safety Observation function and a new Unfair Cooperation Detection system. PUBG has been churning out the cheaters, banning thousands of accounts permanently over the last few weeks. After an account is banned the player is also prohibited from making any new account from that device.
Tencent is looking to add more updates to this existing system and double down on the cheaters in the game. If a player suspects an opponent or a player from your team is cheating they can report them through its in-game reporting system. The game will investigate and pursue appropriate action.
