LOS ANGELES – Feb. 28, 2020 – Continuing efforts to identify and ban cheaters, PUBG MOBILE continues to update security countermeasures to combat constantly-changing plug-in technology. Introduced as the “Project: Ban Pan,” this initiative was first revealed at PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 Fall Split Global Finals in December last year.


Today, PUBG MOBILE has released a behind-the-game video, introducing how the team fights against cheaters via the updated security system of “Project: Ban Pan.” The story is based upon a real case of a 10-years-banned cheater, who describes how the security system defends and how the security team works to protect the healthy gaming environment of PUBG MOBILE. Community members can watch the full video here to learn more.

Within the game, PUBG MOBILE continuously updates the coverage and accuracy of each security component, adding more samples of software and code to respond daily to new evolutions in cheating. Approximately 95% of violations and punished by real-time banning by security system automatically, while players can also report any suspicions to build a larger software database, which also helps with imposing offline punishment. Outside of the game, the PUBG MOBILE Safety Station website offers a place for players to report suspicious behavior more effectively and verify that punishments have been handed out as a result of their joint efforts.

As a new anti-cheat measure of “Project: Ban Pan”, the Death Replay function will be available in PUBG MOBILE in the latest 0.17.0 version update beginning on Tuesday, March 3, allowing players to immediately see how they were killed from the perspective of their opponent.

“Like our players, we've always had a zero-tolerance policy for cheating. To protect the fair and competitive environment of the game, creating a fair and even playing field is always one of our highest priorities.” Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing, Tencent Games, addressed the attitude of anti-cheating from PUBG MOBILE. It is revealed that the recent reported accounts have decreased 90% among the daily active users, compared to the peak, thanks to the upgraded system and players effort. Currently, about 8,000 accounts are banned for 10 years every single day.



PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
