  • PUBG Mobile has said it has banned over 1.4 million accounts.
  • The new anti-cheat report has the data between April 16 and April 22.
  • PUBG Mobile keeps removing accounts that take help of cheats.

PUBG Mobile is at it again. During the last week, the game banned over 1.4 million accounts for using cheats and hacks during gameplay to get an undue advantage over other players. In the latest anti-cheat report, PUBG Mobile has said that this week saw a 2.4 per cent increase over the accounts that saw a ban last week. As usual, the maximum number of accounts that have been banned were found using Auto-Aim Hacks and most of the banned accounts belonged to the Bronze category.

According to the latest anti-cheat report that has the data from April 16 to April 22, PUBG Mobile banned a total of 1,498,738 accounts from accessing the game. This is a marginally high number over last week's, meaning there is no dip in the number of accounts that want to take advantage of cheats and hacks in the game. PUBG Mobile has a no-cheat policy where it has banned the use of any third-party hacks that is not only unfair to other players but also ruins the essence of the game. Plus, it is also unfair to rookies in the game.

In the report, PUBG Mobile said that 39 per cent of the total banned accounts were from the Bronze category while, in the second spot, were the accounts from the Diamond category with a 12 per cent share. Then, you have Silver and Crown accounts at 11 per cent each. Of the total, 10 per cent of accounts belonged to the Platinum category. Then, the accounts from the Gold category were 9 per cent while those belonging to the Ace category were 7 per cent. Like always, the least contribution to the banned accounts is from the Conqueror category with a meagre 1 per cent.

Coming to why these accounts were banned, a whopping 25 per cent of them were found using Auto-Aim Hacks, which are essentially third-party cheats to automatically aim the guns at enemies. Then, there were cheats such as X-Ray Vision and Speed Hacks with a 24 per cent and 23 per cent share, respectively. 12 per cent of total accounts were found taking the help of Modification of Area Damage to cheat, while 7 per cent were using Modification of Character Model. The rest, 9 per cent of accounts were using lesser hacks.

PUBG Mobile took to Twitter to announce the new anti-cheat report where it also mentioned the number of accounts it has banned. However, to the game's dismay, several users said that their accounts were wrongly banned. "My account has been banned. Without any reason. Pubg not ban hackers ban only honest person," said one of the Twitter users replying to PUBG Mobile's tweet. And there are several such people who have accused PUBG Mobile of wrongfully banning accounts. I am not sure how authentic these claims are, but there is no denying the fact that there is a huge misuse of third-party hacks and cheats in the game to gain an unfair advantage.
