The big bad banhammer is about to drop on more than 100,000 ‘PUBG’ cheaters

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the popular multiplayer game, has experienced explosive growth since its launch just over a year ago. With millions of new players every month, there has also been a large influx of criminals, and developers have announced a radical change to make Battle Royale fairer and more enjoyable for everyone.

After analyzing the data of 10 million players, PUBG Corp announced that it has identified a new cheating model used during the games. Retaliation will be rapid in the form of a virtual tsumani, the developers said in a blog post.

All this is part of an ongoing effort to manually filter hundreds of billions of data records. The developers also hope to implement a new system to proactively identify and ban more traps and prosecute those who distribute the software to bypass security procedures.

An update of the game is also planned so that the shooting battles are less chaotic by balancing the boundaries of the blue zone during battles. It is probably easier to escape from the blue zone in the final phase of the games, but the blue areas will cause more damage if they get caught in them.

Although the beginning was quite difficult, PUBG is now available on Xbox One through the Preview program, and many new Xbox players released it with their console during the holidays. In addition, a new Xbox One patch has just been released, which adds new driver options and solves some performance issues.
