Cheating is an issue that developers continue to face, and for PUBG Mobile the fight on the mobile platform is more difficult. To be able to continue identifying cheaters and banning them, the game has updated its security countermeasures to combat constantly-changing plug-in technology. Known as Project: Ban Pan, this initiative was revealed during last December's PUBG Mobile Club Open 2019 Fall Split Global Finals.

The latest anti-cheat feature to be introduced in Project: Ban Pan is known as Death Replay. With this new function, players will be able to see how they were killed from the point of view of their opponent. The Death Replay function arrives to the game on March 3 with update 0.17.0.

In a statement, Tencent Games General Manager of Global Publishing, Vincent Wang, said that they always took a zero-tolerance policy when it came to cheating. He added that in order "to protect the fair and competitive environment of the game, creating a fair and even playing field is always one of our highest priorities."

In addition to the upcoming release of this new feature, PUBG Mobile also given a behind-the-game look on how they are fighting against cheaters. You can view the video below:

The story is based on a real case of a player who cheated and got a 10-year ban. It also gives a peek into the how the security system works and how the security team functions, with the goal of protecting the healthy gaming environment.

Through Project: Ban Pan, PUBG Mobile updates the coverage and accuracy of each security component. The game adds more samples of software and code in order to keep up with the new way that players cheat. So far, 95% of the violations and real-time ban punishments are handed out automatically by the security system. Players can also report any suspicions of cheating. Then there is also the PUBG Mobile Safety Station website, where players can report suspicious behaviors and verify that that the punishments have been handed out.

At present, around 8,000 accounts are handed a 10-year ban every day.
