The PUBG Mobile security team has always enforced zero-tolerance towards in-game cheating since the game’s launch in 2018. This is to ensure a fair and healthy game environment. PUBG Mobile is giving more insight into its existing cheating detection efforts. Further initiatives are also in development, including an upgraded anti-cheat system with advanced real-time detection technology.
The first line of defense is a detection software to scan for suspect software and modified game data. A massive and ever-expanding library is used to cross-reference to keep up with ever evolving hacking and cheating methods. Game observation techniques are also employed to identify players using unfair means to gain advantages. This is especially used to monitor reported players to ensure only the cheaters are banned fairly. The team is capable of differentiating the use of unfair software, skill and any occurrences due to lag or packet loss.
Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing Department of Tencent Games said:
We want players to know that we are 100% committed to providing a fair gameplay experience for everyone. We take enormous pride in the game we work on every day, and cheaters cheapen all of our work. We’re doing everything possible to keep cheaters out of our game as much as possible, and hundreds of team members are dedicated to this task.
As part of the PUBG Mobile team’s commitment to deal with cheaters swiftly, the developers can enforce player bans in real-time. The combination of detection software, observation and player reporting allows the swift removal of cheaters mid-match to ensure a positive gaming experience for players.
