PUBG Mobile recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary, while the game has also crossed 1 billion downloads since its inception.

The Battle Royale title also crossed $5 billion in player spending, making it one of the most successful mobile games ever.

Since the game is built using Unreal Engine 4, the gameplay feels miles ahead of most mobile games present in the market. The gun mechanics, player movement, and graphics are also close to the PUBG PC version.

With millions of players logging in daily, it becomes hard to keep tabs on fair and clean gameplay. That's why the authorities have an in-built anti-cheat system that not only detects cheaters but instantly bans them from the game.

PUBG Mobile also publishes its ban reports every week, informing fans about their actions against the cheaters.
