Garena continues to crack down on cheating in Free Fire, with over 684K accounts permanently banned in the last two weeks alone.
As cellphones become more affordable and internet penetration rises, gaming is becoming more widespread. Free Fire by Garena, a battle royale game geared for mobile users, is one of the most well-known games among aficionados. The game has been a great hit since its release. In the third quarter of 2021, it broke a big record by being the most-watched mobile game. It’s also one of the top ten grossing games of the year as of September.
With millions of active users, however, some people seek an unfair advantage over others. They do this by installing hackers and tampering with the game’s integrity.
To combat this unlawful conduct, Free Fire has implemented an anti-cheat system that not only detects but also bans cheaters immediately.
Every two weeks, they also publish an anti-cheat report on social media to inform fans and deter cheaters from engaging in such behavior.
