PUBG Mobile bans cheaters

Just in time for patch 1.2, PUBG Mobile cleaned its servers of cheaters and hackers. Over 1 million accounts were slain by the “ban pan”, many because of Auto-Aim.

It’s an open secret that many eSports titles suffer from cheaters and hackers. PUBG mobile developer Tencent has addressed the problem by banning the largest amount of hackers ever in one fell swoop.

Ban Pan
On Twitter, Tencent announced that over 1.2 million accounts were permanently banned between 8 and 14 January. Dubbed “Ban Pan”, most of the accounts banned were those that had modified their character model, used Aut-Aim hacks or used X-Ray vision.

It’s an open secret that many eSports titles suffer from cheaters and hackers. PUBG mobile developer Tencent has addressed the problem by banning the largest amount of hackers ever in one fell swoop.

The message also lists what rank the hackers had when they were banned:

  • Bronze: 38 per cent
  • Silver: 11 per cent
  • Gold: 9 per cent
  • Platinum: 11 per cent
  • Diamond: 12 percent
  • Crown: 10 percent
  • Ace: 6 percent
  • Conqueror: 3 percent

Most hackers were found at the lowest rank. At the higher ranks, the hacker rate decreases. This could be related to the fact that players in the Conqueror rank have serious eSports ambitions and therefore do not want to risk a perma-ban.

Tencent Games took the release of patch 1.2 as an opportunity to clean the servers from hackers. Among other things, 1.2 introduced the new Runic Power mode, in which players receive special abilities and summoning spells.
