The statement read: “Through player feedback, we have recently discovered a new cheat that one-shot kills players then inverts their screen momentarily. The official team immediately went into action and tracked players who have used this cheat.”
It continued: “Over 10,000 players have been issued a 10-year ban from the Operations team for harming the gaming environment. Our team will not show restraint to those who undermine the fair gaming environment and use cheats of this type.”
This follows the Project: Ban Pan initiative that launched earlier this year. This introduced a featured called Death Replay, which let players view how they were killed from the perspective of that player. From there they can report any suspicious looking behaviour that is then analysed by the PUBG Mobile Operations Team.
It’s good to see they’re so committed to stamping out as many cheaters as possible but there will undoubtedly be times when they get this wrong, some people are just very good at video games. To combat unjust bans PUBG Mobile is looking to implement a query system that will allow players to have their ban looked at again to double-check if it was the right action or not.
PUBG Mobile is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
