The team behind PUBG Mobile has announced the release of a brand new anti-cheat measure aimed at a recent exploit. The anti-plug-in update further ramps up the team’s commitment to a safe and fair competitive environment.
Developers wrote, “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.”
Earlier this summer, developers retooled Spectate Mode to facilitate the identification and removal of players “exhibiting suspicious behavior”. Observation Period was also added to enforce a fair gameplay environment. These, say developers, are proof that the team is taking “great efforts” to ensure that all players are treated to a fair gaming experience.
