Over 1,044,000 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Cheaters Have Been Banned Last Month
Cheaters are always a problem in any online multiplayer game, even more so in popular games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Just last month, over 1 million cheaters have been banned in the game.
BattlEye recently confirmed that over 1,044,000 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds cheaters have been banned in January, but it seems like things continue to escalate.
We have banned over 1,044,000 PUBG cheaters in January alone, unfortunately things continue to escalate.

Last week, PUBG Corp confirmed that the team will soon launch a new anti-cheat solution to try and limit cheaters. An early version of the new solution is going to go live sometime this week.
We sympathize with the inconvenience that our players are experiencing due to cheat programs and we are doing our best to fight those who create, distribute and use cheats. We have established a dedicated team to focus on combating cheat programs and have developed a new anti-cheat solution internally.
We will be introducing an early version of the solution on our live servers next week. Its main focus for now is blocking unauthorized programs but it will be further developed to broaden the scope of its abilities. This feature will also block different helper programs that alter the graphics or aid in gameplay in some way. Some programs that do not affect gameplay may be blocked temporarily as we hone the new anti-cheat features. We are checking the programs that are being blocked on the test servers and will allow the use of harmless programs as quickly as possible
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now out on PC and Xbox One.
