BGMI recently released a new update for its players with some new features. New ranked and unranked match segregation, a new Livik Aftermath map, weapon upgrades and more are all included in the 1.8.0 January release. A new measure has also been introduced as part of the new upgrade to combat cheating in BGMI.
Anti-Cheating Measures in New BGMI Update
With the new update, there is a penalty on a player’s ‘merit’ score, which will be deducted for malicious behavior. For example, if a player tries to knock out a team or indulge in offensive chat, it will result in the loss of merit points. While deducted merit levels can be recovered based on play time and contribution, and players who maintain high earning levels will receive incentives. Furthermore, the reception and the result of reporting cheats have been improved to give the players more information. So beware before you start thinking about cheating or using unofficial tricks to win the game!
