What types of attack and cheats prevented by the new Anti-Cheat system in PUBG Mobile New Era:

Cheat Z:

Since late June, PUBG detected constant attacks from this cheat. This cheat could cause a player to disconnect during a match and cause other players to be killed after dropping, which seriously disrupted the game.

PUBG have taken action as soon as it was brought to light, and have also penalized the corresponding accounts. In early July, the cheat was successfully countered.

In the most recent version, PUBG also comprehensively upgraded our scheme to crack down on this cheat for a more effective and thorough defense.

Cheat M:

In early August, through a player report, PUBG discovered a YouTube channel and Telegram group in which people were selling a new type of Android cheating software.

By modifying the client and embedding the cheat function in the cracked client, this type of cheat creates an invalid function that destroys the balance in the game.

Although the downloading and installation method is complex, our Security Team was able to detect it via “Renaming – Uninstalling – Installing – Replacing”. After testing, it was found that this cheat has the following functions: “Zero Recoil, “Zero Screen Shake”, “Auto-Aim”, “Vision Expansion”, and “Fog Removal”.

With the Security Team’s constant efforts of examining from both a dynamic and static perspective to analyze the cheat’s behavior, while having successfully put an end to it and penalized all players who used the cheat by banning their account for ten years.


In Version 1.0, PUBG focused on monitoring Auto-Aim hacking and have introduced a total of approximately 20 detection methods. Then successfully put Auto-Aim hacking under tight surveillance from all angles and increased the penalty of Auto-Aim hack usage at the same time. Meanwhile, PUBG still continuously improving and upgrading our detection methods.

Replay Review System:

The Replay Review System will be made officially available in the near future. Players can watch match replays to help the Official Team determine whether the players in the replays exhibited cheating behaviors or not. Subsequently, the Official Team will take the feedback of multiple players as the key consideration to penalizing offenders.
