PUBG will be getting better anti-cheat measures, partly as a response to people deleting files to avoid the new map

Oops

Some people aren't happy about change. While I find the new Miramar map in PUBG to be a breath of fresh air after playing Erangel fifty billion times, others have been going to extreme measures to avoid playing it.

Hilariously, avoiding the new map is as easy as deleting the file in your PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds directory. Once the file is gone the game's lobby system automatically boots you out of the session and takes you back to the main menu. At that point you can keep queuing until you get the original map.

PUBG Corp is combating this by announcing their own anti-cheat measures that not only block third-party programs, but also flags players and possibly bans them for altering or deleting files -- a clear response to the Miramar situation.

Players don't seem to be happy with the changes within the official post, saying they're "not enough," and that the real solution is to region lock China, where they claim a lot of the cheaters reside. We've reached out to PUBG Corp to see if we can get a handle on their long term plans to combat cheating beyond these initial measures.
