PUBG’s gameplay keeps people who love the game coming back for more and more, even all these years after the game was released. Perhaps it’s the intensity of the gameplay that makes PUBG unlike any other battle royale games on the market, including titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends.
Cheating in PUBG can make the game a lot more fun and easier, but a lot of players wonder exactly why some people decide to start hacking in PUBG. In this guide, we’re going to dive deep into the mindset of players who hack in PUBG and you just might find that they have some pretty solid reasons for doing so.
One of the most prevalent reasons for people cheating in PUBG is that they are tired of fighting against cheaters who automatically have an advantage when it comes down to a 1v1 fight. If you’ve been gunned down by one too many cheaters in PUBG, then you may decide that it’s time to make things a little more even.
If that’s the case, using something like an aimbot will put you on the same level as other cheaters, and with an ESP, you might even be able to see another player looking at you through walls. If you want to spite another cheater, you can even report them for hacking because it will be a lot easier for you to notice.
A lot of people like to play battle royale games with their friends because it gives them an “us against the world” feeling, but this can also lead to some nasty arguments. In a battle royale, everyone has to pull their own weight, and if a player isn’t then they may end up getting flak from their friends for it.
If you’re tired of getting degraded by your friends for not holding up your end of things, then you may want to use cheats to show them that you’ve improved as a player. Your friends likely won’t decide to start hitting you with that kind of talk once you carry them through a few games.
Of course, there’s also always the classic reason why people hack in online games, and simply due to how fun it is to win in them. PUBG is no exception to this rule, and it might even be more of a reason than in traditional team-based shooters because of the smaller chances of winning in a battle royale.
In a team game, you can easily get carried to victory because there are only two teams and not a bunch of wildcards to deal with. In a battle royale game like PUBG, you’ll have to contend with a bunch of different teams of players, meaning that each team’s individual chance of winning is smaller.
However, if you’re using hacks like an ESP or an aimbot, it will become much easier for you to win matches against your opponents because of the innate advantage that you’ll have over them.
