PUBG PC Hardware Ban For Cheaters/Hackers Confirmed

Cheater and hackers are definitely a big issue in the PC version of PUBG, ruining the experience of most players who try to enjoy the game as intended. Anti-cheat measures have been strengthened in the past few months, but it seems like the developer is going to make punishment much harsher in the near future.

On the PUBG Official Korean Forums, it’s been confirmed that starting from November 10th, hardware bans will be handed to those who use hacks and have a history of using them at any time during the game. An English language announcement has yet to be made, but it’s surely coming soon.

The previous PUBG PC big update, update #22, introduced new anti-cheat measures, as well as quality of life improvements and more.

As part of our ongoing efforts to combat cheating, we’ve developed a new anti-cheat system in-house at PUBG Corp. which we’re now bringing to live servers, after an extensive period on our test servers. This system is being used in addition to our existing anti-cheat solutions.

Expect to see a new popup when you start the client. To help us refine our anti-cheat service it would be helpful for us if you play with the “Enable Anti-cheat” box checked, if you experience issues you can disable this.

We’ve fixed previous compatibility issues experienced by some players, although we’ve kept the option to disable the new anti-cheat system while we go through the final stages of testing in the live server environment. Once testing is complete, you will be unable to disable this system.

PUBG is now available on PC, Xbox One and mobile devices.
