Elaborating on the kind of hacks that players were using, PUBG Mobile shared that 34 percent of these banned accounts were using auto-aim and X-Ray vision hacks that allow players to lock on to opponents and spot other players through walls respectively. Speed hacks were being used by 12 percent of these accounts, 6 percent were using modification of area damage, 4 percent were modifying their character model, and 10 percent were using other types of hacks.

In the previous round of bans, 1,813,787 accounts were banned from PUBG Mobile for using the same hacks.
