This means that Valve, the developer of CSGO is planning to implement a anti cheat system similar to another competitive shooter Valorant.
The game will detect the presence of a cheating player and will be subsequently abort the ongoing matchmaking if a cheater is detected.
This also ensures that the rank of a genuine player does not get affected due to a cheater as the match itself is instantly terminated.

While each developer has tried to tackle it by creating their own anti cheat systems, the huge playerbase of Valve’s shooter has often made it to crack down on offenders.
