Tencent announced today that PUGB Mobile will identify and eradicate cheating players, up to a 10-year ban awaits users who exploit hacks such as auto-aim, and x-ray vision.
PUBG Mobile is one of the top shooters in Android and iOS, the community has been reporting that some users are cheating through plug-ins. One of the worst hacks confirmed by Tencent is one that disconnects opponents from matches.
The PUBG Mobile team has recently blocked an updated hack again. This hack is able to disconnect players during matches and causes other players to be defeated right after they parachute. The hack is constantly updated and severely affects the gaming environment. The PUBG Mobile team will continue to closely monitor such hacks over the long term. We will punish players who use them with a 10-year ban, and we will take legal action against their developers to hold them accountable!
The PUBG Mobile team will do its utmost to preserve the gaming experience for all players, and as such, we have zero tolerance for hacks and other exploitations from unfairness. We hope everyone will follow the rules and maintain a fair gaming environment.
Tencent also promises that this is one of the future patches and updates to be implemented to combat unfair gameplay behaviors. The PUBG MOBILE team plans to continually combat hacks and other measures to further enforce “a safe and welcoming gaming environment for community members.”
PUBG MOBILE is based on Playerunknowns’s Battlegrounds the battle royale hit from 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles, and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
