Bluehole, the developers of the popular Battle Royale shooter Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), have stated that 15 people were arrested for developing and selling cheat and hack programs for the shooter. These individuals must pay a fine of $5.1 million. In addition, new anti-cheat measures should lead to a complete ban on cheating in the game.

In the Battle Royale shooter Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, cheating and hacking will soon no longer be possible at all, according to the developers. They have set themselves this goal and are working hard to achieve it. If its an achievable goal, only time will tell.

They explain that in the past some measures have been introduced to minimize cheating. New measures should ultimately lead to it no longer being possible at all at some point. The team also collects information about cheaters and hackers and takes action against those who develop and sell such tools. 15 such hacking software developers have even been arrested. They were fined approximately 5.1 million US dollars. Other suspicious persons are currently under observation.

Bluehole also warns all PUBG players not to use cheats and hacking tools, as it has been proven that some of these programs are infected with the Huigezi Trojan, which gives hackers access to users’ PCs. Cheating is not worthwhile in PUBG.
