Hacking is not an unusual thing in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and although it may not be a major issue, there has been a rise in the number of speed hackers lately. A speed hacker, for those who are unaware, is somebody who cheats by increasing their base speed tenfold. Essentially, they are the equivalent of The Flash in PUBG
. Almost impossible to even see at times, and even more impossible to hit.
More and more speed hackers have been showing up in the past couple of months, and daily streamers have been running into them quite a bit. For the most part, trying to kill these hackers is a waste of time. Some of them actually play for the win, but there are those who just zoom around the map as an act of trolling. If you've run into these hackers before, or even if you haven't, then you might get a kick out of watching these streamers absolutely destroy these speed hackers.
Clips of speed hackers getting killed are pretty rare, for the obvious reason. Although they are incredibly fast, professional players like Shroud can put them down relatively easy as you can see in this clip. Other players don't have it as easy as shroud since most of us don't have the godly abilities that he does.
The existence of these speed hackers has sparked a pretty controversial debate in the community. Many players wonder how these cheaters are even able to get away with what seems like such an easily detectable hack. The community argues that the developers over at Bluehole Studios should simply be able to pinpoint and ban any players that exceed a certain speed. The consensus seems to be that, as simple as it sounds, it should be just as simple to deal with.
At this point in time, Bluehole has neglected to comment on this growing issue, and speed hackers still plague the servers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Hopefully, if anything, you enjoyed seeing at least a couple of these hackers get their just desserts.
