PUBG Mobile is arguably the most popular online battle royale game in the world with an estimated 600 million players globally. Given the user base, PUBG Mobile requires the most thought-after policy against cheating and hackers. However, despite the game's efforts, hackers have found a way to come around the techniques put in place to avoid hackers inside the game. PUBG Mobile developers take out an Anti-Cheating report frequently, to show how many hackers and cheaters were banned from the game. In their latest report, PUBG Mobile's developers said that a total of 1,217,342 accounts were permanently suspended between January 8 to January 14.
In its report, PUBG Mobile said that about 48 percent of these hackers were banned for using auto-aim hacks or changing their character models. 22 percent of the hackers were banned for using x-ray vision, 12 percent were banned for speed hacks, and seven percent for modifying the area damage. The report also shows the ranks the hackers were in when they were banned. 38 percent of the hackers were on Bronze, 11 percent were Gold, nine percent were Platinum, 12 percent were Diamond, 10 percent were Crown, 10 percent were Ace, and three percent were Conquerer.
