The Ban Pan

PUBG Mobile bans nearly 500,000 hackers in just a week



One of the greatest fears of any player in PUBG Mobile is facing a hacker. Tencent knows this and helps to strengthen player morale by releasing a periodic Ban Pan – revealing the number of accounts it banned from the game for using hacks.

While the number of cheaters in PUBG Mobile has reduced in the past few months, there are still plenty of them around.

The latest Ban Pan report shows data from July 8 to 14. In this period of just seven days, 472,258 accounts were banned. Additionally, Tencent banned 4,967 devices from PUBG Mobile for using hacks.

The report also shows the frequency of the banned accounts across different ranks in the game. These are as follows:

  • Bronze: 34%
  • Silver: 18%
  • Ace: 18%
  • Diamond: 8%
  • Crown: 8%
  • Gold: 7%
  • Platinum: 6%
  • Conqueror: 1%

This data shows that – no matter what rank you are in PUBG Mobile – you could run into a hacker at any time.

Banning hackers inside PUBG Mobile is great, but it still doesn’t address the root cause of the problem, which is the hacks themselves.

Thus, Tencent has been striving to remove the hacking content as well and has taken down media across Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube as well.

  • Facebook: 40 pages and groups
  • Instagram: 19 accounts
  • Tiktok: 496 videos
  • YouTube: 1,000 videos
