LOS ANGELES – Oct. 23, 2020 – The team behind the world’s most popular mobile game, PUBG MOBILE, is continuing to identify and eradicate cheating measures, new hacks and nefarious plug-ins. Recently eradicated exploits include a hack that disconnects opponents from matches, along with auto-aim and x-ray vision plug-ins.

 

Below is an official statement from the PUBG MOBILE team regarding recent unfair plug-ins:

 

Last week, the PUBG MOBILE team took strong action against iOS jailbreak plug-in hacks! Cheaters used X-Ray vision, auto-aim, and many other cheating methods to severely disrupt the game environment and gaming experience. The PUBG MOBILE team monitors these hacks closely and takes measures to target them immediately once they are detected. These hacks seriously damage the fairness of the game. We will punish players who use them with a 10-year ban and take legal action against their developers to hold them accountable!

 

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.

 

The PUBG MOBILE anti-cheat team also recently addressed manipulative hacks that caused opposing players to be eliminated from the game once they finished parachuting:

 

The PUBG MOBILE team has recently blocked an updated hack again. This hack is able to disconnect players during matches and causes other players to be defeated right after they parachute. The hack is constantly updated and severely affects the gaming environment. The PUBG MOBILE team will continue to closely monitor such hacks over the long term. We will punish players who use them with a 10-year ban, and we will take legal action against their developers to hold them accountable!

 

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.

 

These tactics are the latest in ongoing efforts to combat unfair gameplay behaviors. The PUBG MOBILE team plans to continually combat hacks and other measures to further enforce a safe and welcoming gaming environment for community members.

 

PUBG MOBILE is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play

 

ABOUT PUBG MOBILE

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.
