The team behind global hit tactical tournament game PUBG MOBILE is introducing another anti-cheating measure today in response to a recently-identified hack. A new anti–plug-in measure revealed today furthers efforts to create a safe and fair competitive environment, actively remedying a newly-identified exploit.
Below is an official statement from the PUBG MOBILE team regarding the fix:
“PUBG MOBILE’s official team is dedicated to bringing you a fair gaming environment by punishing players who disturb this environment.
On June 27, we received reports of a new kind of hack that could cause a player to disconnect during a match and cause other players to be killed after dropping. This hack seriously disrupted the game. The PUBG MOBILE Team immediately looked into the matter, punished the corresponding accounts, and are currently taking steps to put an end to this hack once and for all. We will investigate the developers of this hack as far as the law permits, and we will punish players who used it with a 10-year ban.
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.”
The anti-cheat announcement arrives after the implementation of PUBG MOBILE’s recent revealed anti-cheat measures. Earlier in July, the revamped Spectate Mode was introduced to better identify and remove players exhibiting suspicious behavior. The new Spectate Mode was followed by an Observation Period, which also enforced a fair gameplay environment. We see the team is taking great efforts to protect the fair gameplay with the result of identifying and punishing more hackers.
