Free Fire is arguably one of the most played games on the Mobile Gaming Platform. The game has tons of cosmetics, weapons and engaging content for players to look for. The game has been the one of the most downloaded games over the past couple of years.
However cheaters look for ways to get their dirty hands on the legit players in the game and overplay them without making any effort. With millions of active players, it would be an humongous task for the developers to keep an eye on everyone. Since the cheat are in large numbers, the developers have set an anti-cheat system which detects and bans the cheaters permanently.
Most of the cheaters use paid hacks, third-party software to attain the cheats. Moreover, the players who got thrashed by the cheaters in the lobby can report their account to the anti-cheat system via in-game report option and thus they will get banned. Some of the players get banned for playing with cheaters intentionally for rank push and their fantasies in the game.
