PUBG Mobile Anti-Cheat System for detecting and banning in-game cheaters is something their security team is constantly keeping up to snuff and improving. Keeping up with newer and more dangerous methods of hacking and modifying game data, the security process can never be perfect and complete, but since the game was released in 2018, the development team has given great care and attention to this aspect of gameplay. Since this game thrives in a healthy and fair social multiplayer environment, it is imperative that the sanctity and the stability are always preserved and potential hazards kept in check, thus Lightspeed & Quantum and PUBG Corp. came up with an advanced real-time detection tech.
The teams are focused on keeping their game enjoyable and fair, which naturally means dealing with any data modification and cheating/hacking attempts pretty harshly. Thus, PUBG Mobile has a zero-tolerance policy towards such malpractice and they have developed a real-time detection software system that is able, in a deep and smart way, to scan suspicious game data and additional software. The security team now also has a massive library of logged malicious software and attempts at breaking their shields, which serves as a base of reference and is ever-expanding.
However, the PUBG Mobile security team is striving to evolve their system even further which will include even more advanced game observation software tools and methods, which will allow the detection of players that use malicious methods to gain an unfair advantage in an online multiplayer social environment. Their maximized game observation techniques include monitoring those players who are reported through the in-game report player system, adding to its value significantly. In this state now, according to the recent unveiling, the security team for this game is able to safely monitor gameplay without affecting it in the slightest, and differentiate between player skill and unfair software with great reliability, while also observing unusual occurrences in-game like packet loss and lag.
The General Manager of Global Publishing Department at Tencent Games, Mr. Vincent Wang, followed this security upgrade unveiling with these words: “We want players to know that we are 100% committed to providing a fair gameplay experience for everyone. We take enormous pride in the game we work on every day, and cheaters cheapen all of our work. We’re doing everything possible to keep cheaters out of our game as much as possible, and hundreds of team members are dedicated to this task.”
At the game’s current security level, the PUBG Mobile developers can enforce real-time bans for players who are found using any hacking tools, unfair utilities, and they are able to closely monitor each complaint registered by the in-game report system. With this combination of highly advanced software detection and observation methods, Tencent’s security team is able to add great value to the game’s balance, player experience in online multiplayer, and also to add value to customer service. In fact, they can now even remove detected cheaters during a match, just moments after they show up on the radar sort to speak.
