Following PUBG streamers and honking car horns at them in-game has never been treated as a bannable offense, according to creative director Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene.
"A lot of our Steam reviews say 'don't buy this game because they ban people for honking at streamers,'" Greene said. "We've never banned anyone for honking at a streamer."
'Stream honking' surfaced as a popular method to annoy PUBG streamers several months ago. But while some players have been banned for 'stream sniping,' repeatedly hopping between lobbies with the intent to kill or harass specific streamers by using their live stream as a cheat sheet, Greene insists the honking itself has never resulted in a player being banned.
