CMD368 – PUBG Mobile has seen more than its fair share of hackers, with Tencent banning millions of players every week for cheating. From June 18 to 24, the developer banned 3,883,690 accounts for cheating in the battle royale game.
The BanPan is back! 🍳 From June 18th through 24th, we permanently banned 3,884,690 accounts from accessing our game. The main reasons were:
❌ Modification of Character Model
❌ Other Hacks
❌ Speed Hacks/X-Ray Vision

About 76 percent of those players were banned for modifying their character models. Five percent were using speed hacks, four percent were modifying the area damage, while seven percent were using x-ray vision and auto-aim hacks. About eight percent of the accounts were banned for “other” reasons.
The rank distribution of these hackers in PUBG Mobile are as follows:
Bronze: 10 percent
Silver: Four percent
Gold: Six percent
Platinum: 13 percent
Diamond: 25 percent
Ace: 14 percent
Crown: 27 percent
Hackers are a huge problem in PUBG Mobile, and Tencent releases an anti-cheating report every week to assure players that action is being taken. In the last anti-cheating report (June 11 to 17), 2.5 million accounts faced the ban pan for cheating.
For the first time ever, our Head of Security is sharing how he distinguishes between cheaters and non-cheaters 🍿📺🐔 Please play and report responsibly 🖤💛 And remember, we will persevere! 🍳❌

Recently, the developer also released a message informing players about the difference between cheaters and non-cheaters. Tencent likely did this to make players more aware of the hackers’ behavior to decrease the number of reports they receive. As these reports usually have to be manually analyzed by a person, decreasing their frequency will allow for faster action against the hackers.
The video talks about the potential latency lag in the spectating option, which could make it seem that a player is hacking even when they’re not. It also addresses how to spot auto-aim and x-ray vision hackers.
