AFK farming has become quite an issue in PUBGs but, developer Bluehole is monitoring the whole situation and has promised that they will take care of it soon. According to the studio, they are aware of the PUBGs AFK farming and plan to tackle it soon, however, the studio admits they don’t know what will be the solution.
Speaking with PC Gamer at PAX West, producer Chang-Han Kim assured the PUBGs community that the studio is aware of PUBGs AFK Farming. He added that while they are monitoring the situation but, they currently don’t have any solid solution yet.
We have the team working to analyze what’s actually going on there.
We know that the portion of players that are AFKing.. isn’t that high as of now, but we do want to create a tool or vehicles to prevent players from just trying to earn BP [Battle Points] and not playing the game.
It could be us just adjusting the balance of BPs being earnt after each game or just from a structure point of view, preventing AFKs as a whole. We haven’t full decided on a direction for that yet.
For those who don’t know about PUBGs AFK Farming, it is the easiest way to earn Battle Points without actually playing the game. These Battlepints can then be spent on in-game items which then can be sold on the Steam marketplace.
Furthermore, PUBGs creator Brandon Greene has also clarified that there is no single-player campaign planned for PUBG. Brendan Greene stated that for PUBG Singleplayer campaign, it is important to create a lore and currently there is none for the game. He explained further before straight up confirming that there is no PUBG single-player campaign planned.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer survival game currently in early access for PC and will launch for consoles later.
