Tencent has grounded nearly half a million PUBG Mobile accounts that have used hacks and cheats inside the game. In addition to that, the developer also issued a ban on nearly six thousand devices from 1 July to 7 July 2022. Moreover, most of the online content subjected to the game’s cheating and hacking has been removed from the social media handles.
Tencent has always remained defiant on the principle of fair play, and they reinforced this position when they launched the in-game ban feature. PUBG Mobile’s popularity has been hitting new skies each day and it is achieving new milestones each day. The game earned Krafton $8 billion since its inception. Behind this unprecedented popularity, the majority of the players would face hackers and cheaters in the game.
What is an Anti-Cheat System in PUBG M?
To avoid this, the developers introduced an in-game anti-cheat system to keep an eye on the user, and also put up a report option for the players to report unusual activities. Apart from that, the officials also publish an anti-cheat report every week on their social media handles. This copy covers the latest anti-cheat report which blocked over 475K cheating accounts.
Cheaters and Hackers are the biggest problems for any gaming title which is a similar case in Tencent’s BR title PUBG Mobile. Millions of players play the game on a wide margin in a specific given time. It is humanly impossible to check each player and account which is why an anti-cheat system is introduced. It checks each player’s gameplay and rectifies or bans if caught cheating or any malicious activity.
