PUBG Mobile has always had zero-tolerance for hackers and cheaters, and their new anti-cheat system will identify them and ban them in real-time.
PUBG Mobile has just announced its new anti-cheat system, meant to identify and remove any potential hackers, cheaters, and anyone else who might try to exploit the system’s weaknesses for their own gain. PUBG Mobile had a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to anyone who would try to play unfair, and their new system is a continuation of their efforts to create a healthy, but competitive, ecosystem.
The project also shared some additional information regarding their intentions, methods used for improving the current anti-cheating mechanisms, as well as what might come in the future.
For example, the new anti-cheat system will rely on the game itself to detect any modified or tempered data. The game is also equipped with an entire directory filled with software that might be considered suspicious, and which the game will be able to detect.
Of course, the game will not be the only one who is watching — game developers themselves will use game observation techniques to identify suspicious players who might have unfair advantages. This type of security will also be responsible for watching over any of the reported players, and banning them if any additional software was found. These cases are relatively easy to notice by observing issues like packet loss or unusual bouts of lag.
Of course, bans can and will be enforced in real-time should the need arise. Developers will be able to instantly remove players from the playing ground, even if a cheater was detected in the middle of their match. PUBG Mobile’s Vincent Wang stated that players should know that the developers are 100% committed to making the gameplay experience fair and enjoyable for everyone.
He added that the developers take great pride in their game, and cheaters cheapen their work whenever they use advantages to win over other players. This is why developers are doing everything in their power to keep the cheaters out, with hundreds of people being dedicated to this single goal.
