Is it wrong to say I hate Chinese gamers? Probably, at least as a blanket statement it is, but if I narrow it down to Chinese PUBG players? Maybe still wrong, but at this point I don’t care; I hate them.
I believe its a culture thing, but Chinese players LOVE to hack and cheat in PUBG, and they LOVE to play on the NA server when doing so. Lately, every single game has open-mic Chinese people from some cafe shouting garbage, and then in way too many games, said Chinese players kill you via blatant hacking (wall hacks, aim bots, etc). They also love to mass-team, where 10-20 of them will all team up in a game (against the rules) and zombie-horde-kill everyone they come across.
Generally when people claim ‘everyone’ is hacking, its ridiculously false. You remember the one time someone maybe used a hack against you, but you forget the other 99% when you didn’t encounter hacks. Guess what? It feels like EVERYONE from china hacks, and now that PUBG has the kill-cam feature, its easier than ever to confirm your suspicions. I can’t count the number of deaths I’ve had now where the enemy can’t see me on their screen, yet comes at me from a perfect angle and insta-locks me as they turn the corner. Or they head shot you from 300m away using hip fire. It’s really, really bad, and its insane that the devs haven’t region-locked the game. I’ll take longer queues 10/10 over this garbage.
Its the worst in 3rd person, and sadly the people I play with like 3rd over 1st. But I can’t play 3rd anymore, it’s just a waste of time. Even in the rare game you don’t die to someone from china, you still see them in the kill feed, and you always have that feeling that at any moment, you can eat a rando headshot from a hacker. I know this will be fixed ‘soon’, but it needs to be fixed now.
How do you know they are Chinese? The names are in Chinese language? In all the time I have played PUBG (only 20 hours or so) our group has encountered one hacker.
The voice chat is Chinese, for one. Also the names follow a pattern of Chinese players. Do you play 3rd person, solo or squads? That’s the most common game type they play. Also for whatever reason, they don’t play regions other than NA and OCE.
We’re on the Australian server so I am not sure. We try to play 1st person and only in a squad. We do see Chinese language names but have not had any issues with hacking. Or maybe we haven’t been alive long enough to notice. :)
Maybe the chinese players that come to US servers and not go on chinese servers do that with the explicit reason to hack?
I don’t know what it is. I’ve seen multiple videos of Chinese players taunting English-speaking players, and then either hacking or team-killing them (on random squad games), so that at least suggests they intentionally target a certain demographic.
