15 people arrested and fined $5.1 million over PUBG cheats


Despite some tough competition from Fortnite: Battle Royale, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds remains incredibly popular. One of the major criticisms still aimed at the game, however, is its abundance of cheaters, but PUBG Corp continues to crack down on the practice. Recent efforts include the arrest of 15 people accused of using hacks and cheats. Not only were they arrested, but the individuals were also fined a total of $5.1 million.

A Steam post by PUBG Corporation’s Ryan Rigney reveals that in addition to upgrading the game’s security measures and improving/adding to its anti-cheat solutions, the company has been working with local authorities to bring those who develop, sell, promote, or use hacking and cheating program to justice.
