The new anti-hack system in PUBG Mobile
The new anti-cheat feature in PUBG Mobile, announced ahead of the New Era update, is online and 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, then the footage will be reviewed by the officials for further verification.
This week, 15,552 investigators helped in 34,790 ban assists, with the top investigators also receiving the title of Master Investigator. If an investigator assists with 21 correct judgments in a week, then they will receive three classic crate coupons as a reward.
