New PUBG Mobile anti-cheat feature now in play
PUBG Mobile aims to provide a fair gameplay environment for every player, so 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 they will receive three classic crate coupons as a reward.Published 28 Sep 2020, 20:47 IST
