PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is, as all of you know, a very competitive online shooter, the most popular one in the new Battle Royale sub genre of survival games. Basically, the main point of these types of games is to drop their players off in some abandoned, huge area, fill it with lots of loot, and give them enough time to kill each other and see who ends up surviving. The thrilling part about these games is the uncertainty of every match, and how they are all dynamic and different, which makes them extremely fun, especially when you play with a couple of friends. But, that fun stops once cheating gets involved.
This is just an issue that you can’t avoid when you have an online game of any sorts, especially with one as popular as PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS. You will always find players that just can’t seem to increase their skill so they turn to cheats and hacks to make it more enjoyable for them, and you also have people that just like to ruin the experience for others. Thankfully, the developers of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS implemented the BattlEye anti-hacking system, and it is doing work, as in today’s tweet, it seems that the overall number of players that have been banned for hacking is 150,000 cheaters, with over 8,000 players getting banned in the last 24 hours, so it’s safe to say that BattlEye is doing a fine job of removing these guys from the game.
We are glad that these players are being banned on a regular basis, as someone with aim-assist or wallhack, or any kind of cheat just ruins the fun for everyone but the one using them, so we hope that the BattlEye system keeps this up and purges the game from the cheaters.
