For long now there has been a problem with cheating in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with many players blaming Chinese programmers for the problem however until now there has been no solid proof of that until today when the developers behind the game called the PUBG Corporation confirmed that the majority of the hacking tools and software are originating in China where the game is pretty big with countless of copycats too. The games creator Brendon Greene confirmed to Kotaku that “Battleye have already tweeted out that I think around 99 percent of cheats in the game right now are coming out of China,” (Battleye is the anti-cheat software in PUBG) and he also mentioned “There’s a massive cheat market not only in China but around the world….But it’s seen as kind of a little bit more acceptable to cheat in games in China. Also geographically, they just have a lot more people than anywhere else in the world.”
PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale are suffering from cheating issues, there are no real effective ways to tackle the problem right now with hackers always finding new ways to dupe the system, however, PUBG has an advantage as it can ban people and if people want to cheat they have to buy another copy of the game again. However the real problem is finding the cheaters as the Battleye anti-cheat is playing catch up with the hackers and only way hackers are really caught is when they build up enough cheating reports which take time and means many people get away with it.
