Different hacks used in Mobile Legends

Here’s a detailed explanation on some hacks used in the game;

Map hack

A very popular hack that is used by players who don’t have confidence in map awareness, map hack is a cheat that provides a vision of enemies’ position in-game. The purpose of the hack is mostly to avoid being ganked, and knowing the enemies position in a teamfight or overall. Placing a downloaded file in the game file enables a player to do this.

Diamond generator hack

The name of this hack explains it all, getting a big amount of diamond for free by using plugins or online tools. Even this hack doesn’t affect the gameplay, it is extremely unfair to players that invested their money on the game. Anyway, it is easy for Moonton to detect the cheater since all transactions are recorded on their server hence suspicious transactions are easily detected.

High stats hack

Having high damage to kill enemies might sounds fun, but is very likely to be found out cheating. Therefore, this hack enables player to modify the stats of heroes before a game. To use this hack, third party app/plugin need to be installed in phone. Since MLBB is very strict with third party plugin usage, get ready to be banned.

Drone vision hack

Some players might think the surrounding view is too limited on their screen hence opting to use this cheat. Lifting the view helps players to be aware of the surroundings better, and target skills more efficiently. It can be done by editing script files in the game files.

Ping hack

You and your teammates face ping drop for no reason? You might be a victim of ping hack users. The cheater installs a third-party plugin or places a script file in the game folder. The whole team ping will be extremely high while the cheater’s team can play normally. There’s also a similar hack that disconnects you from the game in the early game.

Reasons why you should not use hacks or cheats in Mobile Legends

You might get banned

The obvious impact of using hacks or cheats in Mobile Legends is getting banned. Once the operation team detects that you used a third-party plugin, they will start investigating regarding the matter and you will get banned from playing the game for a certain period of time, given that you are found cheating. The ban period varies depending on the severity of your “crime” but it can last up to 30 years.

You can lose your account permanently

When players use plugins or sites to cheat, they expose their account information to the cheat creator. Plugins contain malicious code and might retrieve data like passwords and PINs from your device. So, those data can be easily used to hack your game account.

Recently, unlucky players across the globe have been experiencing their accounts getting hacked, which the hacker plays on the victim’s account or worse, requests money for them to leave the account. Attempting to cheat increases the chance of getting hacked, even when the plugins are never used in-game.

Using hacks or cheats disrupts the balance of the game

By cheating, a player/team gains an unfair advantage against another player/team, which disrupts the balance of the game. For example, when a player uses the high damage cheat, their opponents won’t have the chance to farm and fight against the cheater, no matter how hard he tries. This scenario should not happen, as every player should have equal opportunities to win, based on their skills.

Hacks & cheats kill the fun part of the game

Last but not the least, using hacks & cheats kills the fun part of playing Mobile Legends. The game should be an arena to test your skills, macro & micro management in the game, and teamwork with peers. Opting for a faster way to gain wins will not give a satisfying experience despite all the wins. Other players will be discouraged too when matched against someone who is impossible to beat because of using unfair means.


Are you cheating if you use VPN or Emulators?

Since the game was released, there were players who have been playing on computers using emulators, and with the recent upcoming event of Mobile Legends getting banned in India, players are trying to use service of VPNs to keep playing the game.
