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.
They also publish a weekly report informing fans about the action they have been taking against cheaters. PUBG Mobile has published its eighth report for cheaters who have been banned over a week, i.e., from 16th October to 22nd October.
This week's report revealed that over 1,124,746 accounts were banned from PUBG Mobile for defrauding, with each receiving a permanent suspension. The first report was posted on 29th August, in which 2,273,152 accounts got suspended. And the second one saw 1,838,223 suspended accounts. Last week they suspended 2,872,644 accounts for cheating.

PUBG Mobile anti-cheat feature now in play
PUBG Mobile aims to provide a fair gameplay environment for every player, for which the developers have created a new anti-cheat feature called the Video Review Station.
With this system, players will decide whether the reported gamer in the video is hacking or not. If the maximum number of responses point to the latter as guilty, the officials will review the footage for further verification.
Players reviewing the videos are called investigators, and the top investigators will receive the title of Master Investigator. If an investigator assists with 21 correct judgments in a week, then he/she will receive three classic crate coupons as a reward.Published 24 Oct 2020, 13:29 IST
