BattlEye Instrumental in Booting Over 150k Cheaters

BattlEye Instrumental in Booting Over 150k Cheaters - MMORPG.com

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Creative Director Brendan Greene sent out a tweet late yesterday afternoon to let folks know that BattleEye is working as intended. Since the game's launch in March, over 150,000 cheaters have been banned including over eight thousand in the 24-hours preceding the announcement.

BattlEye is an external program that, according to its site, "ensure(s) that you can focus on the important parts of game development without having to directly deal with cheating yourself". It integrates with both server- and client-side to identify hacking and cheating. At least according to its FAQ, it is a continual work in progress to keep up with cheaters.

Have you ever had any issues with BattlEye? Do you support its use? Let us know!
