PUBG's new update will allow for reporting of cheaters through replays


Winners don't use drugs

With any mega-popular game comes an abundance of cheaters and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is no stranger to hackers. For awhile now, the only way to report a player was to be killed by them and suspect them of foul play, but the latest update to the "battle royale" smash hit will change that.

In a post over on the Steam community forums, PUBG Corp. has stated that, "Starting with the current test build, you will be able to report players directly from the replay feature of our game. This means that you no longer need to be killed by a suspected cheater for you to be able to use the in-game reporting tool." The post then goes on to further detail how to utilize the new feature.

Another update coming to the game pertains to the in-game loot boxes. PUBG uses crates to distribute cosmetic items and there will now be a few new options getting added in. Normally, players will open up crates and be given some random crap, but now there will be a locked crate that can contain items specific to the "Gamescom" and "Desperado" sets.

The rest of the fixes are mostly quality of life changes that should make for a smoother playing experience (such as four man squads now having colors that aren't derivative of each other). While it is all rote and to be expected, at least cheaters should be having a harder time existing on servers.
