The growth of PUBG Mobile has been tremendously continuous in recent years. A Sensor Tower report published recently showed that the game generated 213.8 million USD in player spending during June. It also generated $1.5 billion in the first half of 2021.
However, with this level of success, PUBG Mobile has been a target of hacking and cheating, leading to alterations for cheaters in-game that are both unfair and ruinous for regular players.
A system to address this has been implemented by the developers of the game, which detects and imposes punishment on players who use any form of cheats. PUBG Mobile also shares ban reports every week to let fans know what actions they have taken against cheaters.
PUBG Mobile officials have released a new cheater report for the week between July 9th to July 15th. As revealed in the latest report, they have permanently suspended 568,392 accounts from playing PUBG Mobile due to cheating.
Compared to last week, the number of banned accounts has decreased by 65%.

- Silver: 10%
- Gold: 10%
- Platinum: 13%
- Diamond: 16%
- Crown: 14%

It is noteworthy that one-quarter of the banned accounts came from the lower tier, proving the effectiveness of the anti-cheat system.
