PUBG Mobile takes on hackers with new anti-cheat system and real-time detection

PUBG Mobile is one of the most famous battle royale games available for mobile phones. While it is facing stiff competition from other battle royale titles like Call Of Duty: Mobile and Fortnite, it's developers are working hard to add new features and bring new experiences. PUBG Mobile was recently updated with a new payload mode, new weapons and more but the game is still plagued by cheaters who employ unethical means to get a leg up against the competition. To counter this, the company has now introduced a new anti-cheat detection system, which is set to identify and ban in-game cheaters.

This new detection software by PUBG Mobile is said to be the first line of defense against cheaters as it scans for software and modified game data. The company also uses "a massive and ever-expanding library to cross-reference when detecting suspicious software," which helps it keep up with new and evolving hacks and cheating methods. In addition, there are game observation techniques that the game developers leverage to spot players using unfair means for stealing that chicken dinner. Banning players requires considerable deliberation since it is an issue if a genuinely skilled player is kicked out. To ensure only users using hacks and unfair means are banned, PUBG Mobile's security team uses game observation in tandem with its new anti-cheat system and real-time detection software.

As per PUBG Mobile, its observation team can go through gameplay to differentiate between the use of unfair software and player skill, as well as unusual game occurrences due to lag or packet loss. Furthermore, PUBG Mobile developers are able to carry out player bans in real-time, which means hackers can be kicked out even in the midst of an ongoing bout to deliver a better gaming experience for players. It is high time that PUBG Mobile took some major steps in trying to better the in-game environment. The game has been plagued by hackers and cheaters who marr the gaming experience for most players.
