PUBG Mobile improves anti-cheat measures to combat cheating

Inspecting the announcement, the company revealed that the new anti-cheat measure builds upon the exiting “Spectate Mode”. The upgrade adds a “peer-review mechanism” that allows the developers to crowdsource the work of catching cheaters. The game server can “determine in real-time if a given player is visible in the view of the game host”. The server can use the information to decide if it wants to transmit the location data to the spectator. Digging deeper, the company revealed that the new and improved “Spectating System” focuses on two key areas. The first is manipulating the Spectate mode to discourage players from cheating. Second, these improvements also allow the Spectate Mode “to better identify and eliminate suspicious behaviors elsewhere in the game.” Also Read - PUBG Mobile to fight coronavirus; launches ‘Play As One’ campaign, in-game challenge, fundraiser

The announcement notes that the upgraded “Spectating System” comes with three different parts or roles. These roles include the host, the game server, and the spectator. Before the improvements, some cheaters used the “Spectate Mode” to use two devices to locate enemy players inside the game. The new improvements fix this loophole to make things fair.

Considering the system works on the server level, cheaters can’t use plug-ins to make changes to the game data. PUBG Corp also notes that this will not impact the experience of the players who spectate matches normally. Beyond this, the company also fixed “an ongoing cheat” that allows cheaters to kill players with one single shot. It also issued an official statement regarding the fix. It reads, “Through player feedback, we have recently discovered a new cheat that one-shot kills players then invert’s their screen momentarily. The official team immediately went into action and tracked players who have used this cheat. Over 10,000 players have been issued a 10-year ban from the Operations team for harming the gaming environment.”
