PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has quickly become one of the most-played battle-royale style games in a really short span of time too. However, with millions of players being attracted towards this game, it is pretty obvious there will be a stream of stalkers and cheaters who are also looking towards making wrong use of their abilities.
According to a report published by Bleeding Cool, PUBG Corporation, as well as Blue Hole, is enabling players with the power to make use of the replay feature and report all those players that are cheating and making illegal use of mods.
Previously, users would end up being killed by the cheater. “It also presented a weird looping issue where video evidence had to be provided alongside a report with the developer often asking for it outside of the client itself, which then could be denied because the report was not made within the client,” notes Bleeding Cool. This made it extremely difficult for the game developers to punish the cheaters. They went on to ban the game for over 1.5 million players, who were found cheating. At that time, the company announced that most of the cheater emerged from China.
Coming back to the latest update, the game developer has included a new type of replay system. The latest system adds Desperado and Biker items to its loot boxes for all those interested test server users. These items will only come to use within the purview of the test server and nowhere else.
Players won’t be able to take these outside to their regular servers. This certainly does come across as disappointing. Nonetheless, it sure is a relief to know that the company is doing all it can to curb the spread of cheaters and cheat codes that could potentially ruin the experience for all the players involved.
