PUBG bans nearly 30,000 accounts in Radar Hack Ban wave; pro players caught cheating
PUBG is one of the biggest games in the world right now, and its professional arena is also developing into a rather big attraction. Being one of the most popular games is not an easy task and players on PUBG have been experiencing confrontations with cheaters even before the game was officially launched in its Early Access period. The problem with cheaters became so blatant that popular streamers like Shroud encountered them on a regular basis, and died quite a few times at their hands.
Recently Reddit users pulled up the statistics that Bluehole has banned almost 13 million fraudulent accounts and hackers in October. Now, a report claims that PUBG has banned another 30,000 accounts recently. The new wave of ban follows the release of the new Vikendi map using its anti-cheat algorithm called BattlEye.
The newest hack to be included in the scope of possible
Among the professional players that have been banned are Can “TEXQS” Ozdemir of the Pittsburgh Knights, Sezk0 and Houlow of the French team SDF and Copenhagen Flames players “Hoffmann88” and “Player Jones” according to a Newsweek report. The players have been accused of using the hacks in their online games and there is no information if they used the same during the LAN events which would make it a rather daring task.
