One of the most frustrating feelings in the world is when you get your hands on a brand-new set of cheats and you’re unable to get them up and running because of technical difficulties. We’ve put together this guide that covers some of the most common issues that you can expect to run into while using PUBG cheats.
The most common problem that players have when their PUBG cheats won’t work is related to compatibility. There are a few different things that you’ll have to make sure of when you’re purchasing cheats so that you don’t end up facing this exact issue, so let’s see what parts of your computer need to be compatible with your hack.
One of the most important things to check before downloading a cheat pack is the version of Windows that you’re running. Unfortunately, due to security updates and how cheat compatibility works, you’ll need to be running Windows 10 to use the vast majority of the cheats that we have available for PUBG.
Also, be sure to check the version of Windows 10 that you’re running, because there are many different updates and variations of the operating system. There are times when an optional Windows update may even end up breaking a cheat because it changed something that the cheat was reliant on.
Along with software compatibility, you’ll have to check and see if your cheats are compatible with your computer’s hardware. For example, some of the internal cheats that we have available for PUBG are designed to only work with Intel processors, so you can’t run them on an AMD machine.
Even your GPU matters in some cases, though having compatibility issues with graphics cards is a lot less common than with CPUs. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s out of the realm of possibility. Some cheats are designed exclusively for use with either Nvidia or AMD GPUs and not both.
Properly installing your cheats is a crucial part of making sure that you get the results that you want out of them. Failing to do so can make your cheats malfunction and can even break your game so that you’ll have to reinstall it entirely from scratch, so please closely follow the instructions.
One of the most important things to ensure when you install your cheats is that your computer is prepared for the installation. This means that you’ll have to turn off your computer’s anti-virus because it may end up triggering a false positive when you try to install your cheats, and this can disrupt the installation process.
If a crucial file gets quarantined or deleted by your computer’s anti-virus while you’re installing the hacks, you may end up running into some malfunctions. This is because cheat packs rarely have the kind of certification that anti-virus programs look for to ensure that software is reliable.
Along with disabling your anti-virus, you’ll also need to go into your computer’s BIOS and disable the secure boot function. This will allow your cheats to run unimpeded in your computer’s startup sequence, ensuring that they can circumvent anti-virus programs that are also part of the startup flow.
Configuring your cheats properly is always crucial, because this ensures that you get exactly what you want out of them and that you don’t get caught because your cheats are too obvious. Believe it or not, proper cheat configuration may also be the reason why your cheats aren’t working.
Some cheats need to be enabled in the configuration menu so that they can start working in the first place. This is a safeguard put in place by some cheat developers to ensure that you don’t end up loading into a lobby with all of your cheats activated, which can be a quick way to get yourself banned before you even enjoyed your hacks.
If all else fails, then you may wish to try reinstalling your cheats, especially if you didn’t closely follow the initial instructions when you used your cheat loader the first time. The uninstallation process varies depending on the cheat that you installed, and some will make it complicated while others will make it easy.
Some cheats may require you to uninstall the game itself, so if you have to resort to this option, you’ll want to make sure that you have fast internet or a bit of time on your hands. If the problem persists after attempting to reinstall your cheats, then we’d recommend getting in touch with customer service.
