If you’re trying to understand what PUBG Mobile hacks are and why people use them, you’re in the right place. While Tencent does all it can to stop cheaters from ruining the game, the developer still relies on players like you to notice and report any hacking. With this guide, we’ve got all you need to know about reporting, as well as some hints on how to appeal a ban if you’ve been wrongly reported.

Reporting cheaters

Play for free!

Players killed by cheaters can submit a report in-game by pressing the report button. You can find the report button on the same page as the score/spectate screen and in the Tier Overview section of the offending player’s profile. This method makes things easier for Tencent as it has access to all of the information it needs.

It’s always important to watch the killcam of the suspected cheater before you submit a report. Though your initial reaction may be to instantly report the killer, watching the killcam back will give you a better idea of how you were taken out. Flooding the report system with false claims makes the developer’s job of banning actual cheaters much harder.

The Tencent community team on the PUBG Mobile subreddit has also created a system to highlight cheaters if you missed the report window. This method does take much more time to fill out as you’ll need to supply the offender’s in-game user ID, username, what server you played on, links to any supporting evidence, and additional context to prove the player was cheating. Ideally, the evidence you provide should be in the form of a video rather than a screenshot.

Where to find hacks

The main way people access PUBG Mobile hacks is through modified APKs on Android devices. These APKs allow cheaters to access abilities such as auto aim, no recoil, and even the power to see through walls and grass. There are ways to cheat using an iPhone and iPad, but this requires a jailbroken device making it inherently harder.

There are a large number of these hacks available online, though there’s a big difference between free and paid hacks. Free hacks will typically work for a short period of time, but they usually get caught by the game’s built-in anti-cheat system within hours. Hacks that players have to pay for usually slip under the anti-cheat radar, however, these players are not immune from being caught. Players using premium hacks will avoid making it obvious that they are cheating in order to avoid being reported in-game.

How to appeal a cheating ban

If the developers have caught you using PUBG Mobile cheats, there is nothing you can do to avoid a ban. On the off chance your friend may have cheated on your account without you knowing, Tencent won’t consider unbanning your account. If Tencent receives evidence that confirms someone on your account has cheated, these bans cannot be reversed.

There’s a rumour that players who have spent hundreds of dollars in-game cannot be banned for cheating, but that is absolutely not the case. Tencent has banned players in the past for cheating as they have a zero tolerance policy on using hacks.

Successfully reporting cheaters using the in-game system will bring up a notification to tell you the accused player has been permanently banned. If you’ve ever considered using PUBG Mobile hacks, don’t even think about it unless you desperately want to receive a permanent ban.
