PUBG Mobile is one of the most famous mobile games in the world. But with soaring popularity comes a host of cheaters. Hence, to combat these hacks and maintain fair play, the developers have created several anti-cheat systems like the Video Review System and the Script Detection System.

They also publish a weekly report informing fans about the action they have been taking against cheaters. PUBG Mobile has published its twelfth such report for cheaters who have been banned over a week, i.e., from 13th November to 19th November.
