Additionally, PUBG Mobile has announced that it is preparing to roll-out a new anti-cheat patch and that it has deployed more members to stop hackers and cheaters from spoiling the game for other players.
These attacks on the popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile seem to be a coordinated effort as seen by some video tweets that reveal the attack mechanism. This new hacking issue is being termed as “server freeze” wherein several players freeze at their respective in-game positions and are unable to interact with the game properly.
