Mobile Battlegrounds India In a single week, publisher Krafton bans almost 70,000 accounts for cheating.

Since December 6, Krafton has prohibited BGMI accounts.

Krafton, the creator of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), has banned over 70,000 users in less than a week. The prohibition is part of the developer’s stringent efforts against unlawful activities that it claims are hurting the gaming environment. It has also provided a list of the banned accounts’ names. Previously, between December 27 and January 2, Krafton banned approximately 60,000 accounts. It has been on a banning frenzy since December 6, and in its weekly takedowns, it has banned over 400,000 accounts.

Krafton reported in a post that 70,543 BGMI accounts had been banned for engaging in unlawful activities during the six-day period from December 27 to January 2. It has also released a list of cheats. Krafton forbids players who have obtained the BGMI game through an unauthorized channel or have illicit auxiliary apps installed on their devices.

Krafton already suspended roughly 71,000 accounts for cheating. Most bans have issued within December 13 and December 19 (almost 1 lakh), with more than 142,000 issued between December 6 and December 12.

Meanwhile, according to a rumor, the next Battlegrounds Mobile India update (Version 1.8) will be released on January 14. Krafton has collaborated with Sony Pictures to deliver exclusive content from Spider-Man: No Way Home to the battle royale game, including collaborative skins. According to Krafton, players who accomplish in-game missions can claim these premium goodies on BGMI. The publisher has yet to announce an official release date or any other specifics.
