If you are using cheats or hacks to win your chicken dinner, then there is some bad news for you. PUBG MOBILE has taken a stand for fair play in gaming by imposing a 10-year ban for players that have cheated. PUBG MOBILE says, “We have always strived to deliver a gaming environment that is fair and enjoyable for each and every player and prevent cheating. We take this issue very seriously; as such, each account in violation has received a 10-year ban. We would like to remind all players about the importance of fair play, and thank you for keeping PUBG MOBILE fair and fun.” If you thought that the world of PUBG only had a handful of cheaters, think again. The company had issued a 10-year ban to over 3500 players in September alone.
Players who use unauthorised third-party apps or hacks that gain an unfair advantage will be condemned with the ban. Players also have the option to report other players who are suspected of cheating. This can be done using the in-game reporting system. You can check out the list of banned players and why they were banned here.
