Every week, PUBG Mobile releases an anti-cheat listing reporting on their banning figures. This Christmas, the PUBG Mobile bans are several-hundred thousand more. Here’s everything we know…
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, whatever your turn of phrase… Tencent has decreed, much like the all-knowing Santa Claus, that a few of their players belong on the Naughty List.
Between December 18 and December 24, Tencent has hit a whopping 2,359.953 PUBG Mobile accounts with a permanent ban. It’s been described as a ” gift to players” by some; it’s hard to disagree with that!
PUBG Mobile, like any successful competitive multiplayer title, has been plagued with hackers for a long time. Despite the negative publicity Tencent have received, it’s hard to criticise their approach to the issue. For the most part, Tencent’s weekly ban figure floats around 1.5 million accounts.
Surprisingly, this is a lot less than the Christmas bans that hit the PUBG Mobile community. Was it just a busy week? Perhaps Christmas Noobs are still a thing…
PUBG Mobile Christmas Bans – Full Statistics
Below, we’ve listed a breakdown of the Ranking Spread of the Christmas Bans alongside a breakdown of the primary reasons for each banned account.
What does this all mean? It means that hacking in PUBG Mobile is not limited to a particular rank. It is, of course more popular with lower-rank accounts as this is undoubtedly where the bulk of the player-base sits. However, it is an issue all the way up to the top!
Even moreso, the reasons for the bans are intriguing. Rather than it being dominated by Auto-Aim hacks or X-Ray Vision hacks, modifying the character model is the most common by a substantial percentage.
