An Astounding Percentage of PUBG Cheaters Come from One Country

Even with stiff competition from Fortnite Battle Royale, Battlegrounds has persevered.

More so than nearly any other current top game, PUBG is infested by cheaters. Another reason attributed to the decline is Bluehole's new anti-cheat measures finally yielding results, cutting out an unwanted chunk of the community thanks to BattlEye and its own in-house systems.

Since PUBG's release in China, its player base there has shot up.


According to numbers from SteamSpy, the total sales on PC are approximately 30,193,726 (give or take 167,538).

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has reached yet another new sales milestone as the game has now sold over 30 million copies to date! PUBG is blasting past titles such as New Super Mario Bros. and Wii Sports Resort, as well as classics like Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue.

However, even at its least played, it still has more concurrent players than the next ten games on Steam combined, so PUBG isn't exactly hurting for players.


With the team actively looking at bringing the online title to the PlayStation 4 platform, we know that there is still a lot of work to be done before the full title can be released on Xbox One. Since the beginning of 2018, there has been several million less active players populating the PUBG's servers on your average day.

Adding fuel to the fire, Youxi Story reports statistics showing that 99 percent of cheaters do, in fact, come from China alone, and that 45 percent of all PUBG accounts are tied to the region.
