PUBG Mobile banned over 2.2 million cheaters. On September 12, PUBG Mobile announced that it has permanently banned over 2.2 million cheaters. PUBG Mobile said on twitter that in the period between September 4 and September 10, some 2,245,936 have been permanently banned from accessing the game.
According to the official statistics, the most common cheat that was used by the players was x-ray vision and some 52% of the total banned players used this cheat tool. Auto-aim cheats were used by 23% of the banned players, some 8% were found to use speed cheats. Some 6% of the banned players used a character model modification tool, 6% used other types of cheating tools and 5% used a modification of area damage.
PUBG Mobile’s “modern age” also brought in a video review feature in addition to weapons and new game modes. The new video review feature named “Ban Pan” aims to battle the cheaters with the help of investigators’ reviews. This newly introduced system is reminiscent of the Overwatch system used by CS: GO which takes a similar approach in the battle against cheaters. Any player wishing to become a researcher can apply.
Once approved, the player will be able to review videos of suspicious player behavior which are randomly assigned. Players who are reviewing suspicious behavior will be able to choose from three options namely violation found, no violation found and unsure.
Players that participate by reviewing videos can keep track of their review level and review title. The “Ban Pan” will also track how many reviews each player has and how many correct judgments were administered. PUBG Mobile did say that reviewers with low accuracy of spotting violations will have less impact on the review. If a player keeps reviewing videos and his judgment is too low, the privileges may be revoked.
