Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has surged in popularity since Bluehole launched it as an Early Access title. Unfortunately, there have been rampant PUBG cheaters in the game, often ruining the experience for others.
PUBG cheaters will be punished
Cheating is one of the most prominent problems when it comes to online gaming. These players ruin the fun with an unfair advantage. That said, developers have always tried to find a way to ban them from the game. That said, it seems like even cheaters in PUBG are no exception.
In a recent Steam post, they apologized for the inconvenience cheaters have been causing. In line with this, the team is working on better countermeasures that can detect and punish these types of players. “We will use all available resources to combat cheaters and foster a safe and fair in-game environment,” they claimed, “We will also continue to take actions against those who develop and distribute cheats.”
If they detect any cheating players, they will receive a permanent ban. Similarly, they will also temporarily suspend and investigate accounts with “unusual gameplay patterns.”
Long term battle
That said, cheating isn’t going to end overnight. It seems like the developers are on board with this as they plan to continue combating cheaters. “We will take stronger actions to find and ban cheaters, while at the same time taking good care to not harm innocent players, “the developers added. To start off their crusade, Bluehole will be launching an anti-cheating patch early next week.
With PUBG’s growing reputation, it isn’t too surprising that Bluehole is trying to weed out these types of players. PUBG cheaters can seriously ruin the game’s reputation if they aren’t dealt with. It’s also the perfect time to ban cheaters before the game goes live next month. Those who want to play PUBG can still get an Early Access copy on Steam.
