The video starts off by talking about a person who was banned for killing players that really could not be seen. It then goes to show how this person was banned and the first line of defense is apparently called a security defense system. This automatically monitors all in-game data. Now the player in question here didn’t have any anomalies in the player log. But having reports from several other player is a massive red flag. But the devs can apparently infer from video evidence if a new cheating method is being used. Even if the hacker didn’t use hacks at the beginning of the game and switched his device to hack on a different device during the last few minutes of the game.
