Report System

In addition to the announcement of a new event, the team also shared through a post that changes are coming to the game's report system. In identifying and suspending cheaters, one of the resources used is the player reports. The problem is that cheaters are aware of this and are doing what they can to either avoid or lower the chances of getting reported. For example, it's been found out that cheaters have been abusing this system by either placing first or not getting kills on purpose.

It is for this reason that the PUBG community has long requested for an improvement so they can report a broader group of players. A change was introduced during the January 2023 update and was seen as the first step to improve the report system.

Future plans related to the Reporting System include adjusting the current report categories. This is to allow the team to respond to reports more accurately, especially when it comes to cheaters. An example is a report category for players who make advertisements or promotions through voice chat or those who group up with cheaters.

PUBG: Battlegrounds is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, and iOS.
