Highlights

  • PUBG Mobile has released its latest anti-cheat report.
  • It has banned over 1.6 million accounts in the massive crackdown.
  • About 40 per cent of the banned accounts belonged to the Bronze category.

PUBG Mobile has once again cracked down on several pesky accounts that were taking advantage of various cheats and hacks to win battles. In a fresh round, the Battle Royale game has permanently banned 1,620,242 accounts and their details are in the new anti-cheat report. Once again, you have these debarred accounts classified on the basis of the type of cheats they were using. These cheats are X-Ray Vision, Auto-Aim Hacks, and Speed Hacks among others.

The latest anti-cheat report collates data between April 2 and April 8. Over 1.6 million accounts in a matter of 7 days is a lot, but we have seen more astonishing numbers previously. And it is funny how the volume of these accounts is not sinking. Last month as well, PUBG mobile banned over 1.6 million accounts, so you do the math.

PUBG Mobile, in its latest report, has said that a whopping 40 per cent of these accounts belonged to the Bronze category. That means the accounts that are at the lowest tier are most likely to resort to using cheats to get that headshot. At the second spot are the Diamond-category accounts with a 12 per cent share.

Besides, 11 per cent were Silver and Crown, 10 per cent of the total banned accounts belong to the Platinum category. Then, there are Gold category accounts with 8 per cent share and Ace category accounts that contributed 7 per cent. The least number of cheating accounts belong to the Conqueror category with a 1 per cent share.

As usual, PUBG Mobile details in its report the share of cheats and how widely they are used in the game. At the top, you have Auto-Aim Hacks with a 21 per cent share that several accounts use to ensure their aims never go in vain. Interestingly, 21 per cent of accounts used X-Ray Vision in the game to ensure their win. Then, you have the accounts that use Speed Hacks with a 17 per cent share. After that, you have Modification of Character Model and Modification of Area Damage cheats with 8 per cent and 5 per cent contribution, respectively.

PUBG Mobile has permanently banned these accounts, which means their users cannot recover them. The reason why such many users go for cheats is the advantage they gain in the game. Using these cheats makes it easy for players to score kills without having to strive harder. And this is against the fair game policy. Not only these cheats are unfair to other players, but they are also detrimental to rookies who are still learning to play PUBG Mobile.
