More Than 1 Million PUBG Cheaters Banned Last Month
The popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been tearing up the battle royale scene since its first appearance on Steam Early Access. However, the game has seemingly always had an issue with players finding less-than-moral ways of going about obtaining that elusive chicken dinner. For those that have stuck to the rules, with over a million PUBG cheaters banned in just the last month, it can be comforting knowing that BattlEye is hard at work.
Players have found a bounty of ways in which they can scam the system in PUBG, but with the anti-cheating service BattlEye in place, more and more of them are being denied their poultry suppers. The service recently took to their Twitter account to let people know how many people received the banhammer last month, and the number is staggering:
We have banned over 1,044,000 PUBG cheaters in January alone, unfortunately things continue to escalate.

That’s right, more than one million PUBG cheaters banned. With the amount of players to begin with, that number is huge, but BattlEye says things will only continue to get worse. Recently, they revoked the ability of account sharing, which people were exploiting for nefarious means. This is in addition to the game’s report feature that has been beefing itself up recently. However, as long as people find their way around these countermeasures, the number of cheaters will only continue to rise.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently available on PC and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
