Tencent and PUBG Mobile's developers have decided to escalate the anti-cheat system to the next level, giving the powers to the player themselves to ban the hackers in-game. With this system, a group of players would be able to watch the gameplay of a suspected cheater and decide if the guy is a hacker or not. And if the majority of these watchers decide that there are problems, the suspected cheater would be given a permanent ban.


In this article, we would explain more about PUBG Mobile's anti-cheat system currently and how this addition would affect the game.

1 - PUBG Mobile's current anti-cheat system:

Shooters are one of the prime targets for hacking, as creating a hack for this kind of game is rather easy. Due to PUBG Mobile's nature of being a very popular multiplayer game, you would always have the chance to encounter hacks, no matter how hard the developers try. They can just create a new security patch for the hacker to break it... and the circle continues.

Currently, PUBG Mobile has 2 layers of anti-cheat, with one being automated and the other being manual, with people look into the gameplay manually to check. As the developers' manpower is limited, there are just not enough people to check, leads to cheaters getting away with it after beating the automated system. This is where the video review feature comes in.

2 - PUBG Mobile's video review feature: How does it work?

This is actually not a new feature in gaming, as CS:GO has had the "Overwatch" feature for quite a while now, and it definitely works. Not every player would get access to this feature, of course - it is likely that you would have to be above a certain rank or having enough playtime in PUBG Mobile to become a "player investigator".


The review station would be a part of the game itself, with players jumping in and checking out the video footage to gather evidence. The process would be like this:

When a player is reported for a certain number of times by other players, a battle replay video would be generated and randomly sent to the "investigators", who would check the video for cheating. If the majority agrees, the video would be sent to the official PUBG Mobile team to double-check. If the review passes, the cheater would be banned permanently.

It is likely that this system would come with the 1.0 update of PUBG Mobile in early September. Interested in more of our articles related to PUBG Mobile? Please check out this post to find out more about the top 5 locations to find the M416 in Erangel.
