In late August, PUBG Corp revealed the new era of PUBG Mobile, with the mammoth 1.0 update coming in September, as well as a Global Championship with a million prize pool. However, PUBG mobile does still have a cheater problem. With the improved anti-cheat, the developers are banning those who use cheats in PUBG mobile by the millions.


Millions of PUBG Mobile cheaters banned

The new era anti-cheat for PUBG Mobile seems to already be doing its job. The developer revealed on Twitter how they have banned over 2.2 million accounts in just one week (20th to 27th August 2020) thanks to the improved anti-cheat.

With over 2.2 million PUBG Mobile accounts getting banned, and over 1.4 million devices being permanently suspended from accessing the game, the developer has made it clear how serious they are about cheaters.

Of these accounts banned, the following PUBG Mobile cheats were used:

  • 12%: Speed Cheats
  • 22%: Other
  • 27%: Auto-Aim Cheats
  • 32%: X-Ray Vision
  • 4%: Modification of area damage
  • 3%: Modification of the character model

This is a giant step forward in the fight against PUBG Mobile cheaters, to say the least. 

PUBG Corp shared a visual breakdown of the recent ban wave, which you can view below.

While this is a great step in the right direction, we all know some players will always find different ways to cheat in PUBG mobile, or any other competitive title really.

Hopefully, the developer won't slow down in banning those who use PUBG Mobile cheats, as this will be a long battle between cheat creators, players, and the improved anti-cheat system.
