PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is often plagued with cheaters. These cheaters either play with aimbots or use cheats that reduce recoil which significantly increases their aim. In reaction to the mounting complaints from the community, it seems as though PUBG Corp will be making more of an effort to crack down on cheaters.

Here is what u/PUBG_McClutch said in a post to the PUBG Subreddit.

PUBG Corp is Working to Increase Anti-Cheat Efforts

In the post, a "new method of detecting and banning cheaters, specifically related to things such as recoil control and other abnormal gameplay patterns" is in the works. What that means remains to be seen but players can expect some sort of change in the future.

U/PUBG_McClutch also reminds players to "submit a ban appeal ticket" through their support portal. Reporting incidents of cheating or toxicity in the past have rarely resulted in some sort of penalty, which is a widespread problem that not only relates to PUBG. League of Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite, for example, all have reporting mechanisms but due to the sheer amount of reports and cheaters, it makes it difficult to dole out suitable punishments. It will be interesting to see how PUBG Corp approaches the issue and whether or not their new initiative will impact the level of cheaters.
