PUBG always faced the issue of hackers and cheating, and the problem is persistent with more and more techniques to bypass the game’s anti-cheating mechanics.
PUBG Corp. continuously tries to update their anti-cheat mechanics and systems to combat cheaters, with the latest update being hardware bans. On the PUBG Official Korean Forums, a lengthy statement went out explaining the studio’s new anti-cheat and hacking mechanism. Anyone caught cheating by the system and/or has a history of using hacks before, they will be handed a hardware ban. Earlier in August, PUBG received an update, adding a key guide to loading screen tips, death cam reporting, teammate reporting and more,
