PUBG Mobile's attempts to keep the game fair

To implement a fair gameplay environment for every player, the developers have created an anti-cheat feature, Video Review Station.

Players have the power to decide whether a reported gamer is hacking or not. If the maximum number of responses say that he/she is guilty, then the officials will review the footage for further verification before making the final call.
