PUBG Has Banned 1.5 Million Players Total But Sets New Steam Record
Another week, another PUBG article in the news! This time, it’s quite an eye opener. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has banned a total of 1.5 million players for cheating last year. That is an incredible amount, and must be a record too of some sort with that amount of cheaters. The information comes from reputable anti-cheat gurus BattlEye on Twitter.
Update on the number of PUBG bans: 1,500,000.

When looking at PUBG’s Steam store page, the comments section will tell you just how big of a problem cheating is. There are those that use 3rd party software to hack and snipe, while others transfer lag to gain an advantage. Why can’t people just play fairly. To their credit, Bluehole is at least taking care of the problem with bans. And when your game is that popular, you’re bound to attract a lot of A-holes.
In addition to that piece of info, PUBG has also set another record. Its now the holder of the highest Steam concurrent users record, sitting nicely at 3 million players in total. Keep in mind that these numbers are for the PC. If we factor in console players, those figures are bound to be even higher which is insane.
