More than 10,000 players have received 10-year bans from PUBG Mobile for using a new cheat that one-shot kills players then inverts their screen momentarily.
Cheaters are the bane of any online game's existence and PUBG Mobile is not immune to the nuisance. In an ongoing effort to reduce the number of cheaters in their game, PUBG Mobile's devs are continually updating the security measures and in-game systems.
Today brought an announcement that a certain cheat that will kill players in one shot has been solved.
The official statement from the most recent patch notes regarding the fix says that, through player feedback, the devs have discovered a new cheat that one-shot kills players then inverts their screen momentarily.
The team went into action and tracked players who have used this cheat. As a result, over 10,000 players have been issued a 10-year ban from the Operations team for harming the gaming environment.
The statement says that the dev team will "not show restraint to those who undermine the fair gaming environment and use cheats of this type."
Today’s anti-cheat measure follows the “Project: Ban Pan” campaign, which was first revealed at the PUBG Mobile Club Open 2019 Fall Split Global Finals.
The initiative has introduced the Death Replay function in the last update, which allows players to immediately see how they were killed from the perspective of their opponent to further identify suspicious behaviour.
