PUBG Mobile Anti-Cheat Update
As with many games, players can find ways to take advantage of existing gameplay mechanics.
However, it’s when it starts preventing players from picking up the game all-together, that things have to change.
Let’s face it, a relaxing evening is quickly turned into sombre event once you’ve been nailed with seemingly mythical accuracy…repeatedly!
What are the new measures?
So, the new PUBG Mobile anti-cheat measures include an update to the spectating system.
The game server will now be able to determine in real-time if a given player is visible in the view of the game host. It will then use that information to decide whether or not to transmit the location data to spectators.
Previously, some sneaky characters were able to take advantage of Spectate Mode by using two devices to pinpoint in-game enemy players. This led to the obvious disadvantages for anyone on the receiving end.
So, what happens if you cheat?
There have been some seemingly serious consequences appearing for cheaters in games – especially competitive titles.
PUBG Mobile has a 10 years ban in place for cheaters. It’s also continuing to enhance security to create a fair, and fun gaming environment.
There’s a lot to be excited about in the future with PUBG Mobile, so it’s always good to see measures being taken to bring more people into the action.
