Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has been a reason for the revival of the PUBG Mobile fanbase in the Indian region. The game has provided new content with consistent updates that have also been synchronized with the global variant (PUBG Mobile).
Thus, BGMI has been relatively successful even after PUBG Mobile’s eight to nine months of inactivity in the Indian region. However, alongside the rise of the Indian PUBG Mobile variant, an array of GFX tools for enhanced gameplay output have also resurfaced.
These GFX tools claim to tweak or optimize the in-game settings and provide a lag-free experience. Thus, such tools have attracted plenty of low-end users who download them to get a smoother experience in BGMI, but they can endanger users’ accounts.
BGMI GFX tools: Why they are fake, unauthorized, and employing them may lead to an in-game ban
Graphic effects (GFX) tools are usually third-party programs, and many have a presence in the application stores. They modify or interact with the game client.
However, their installation and use with Battlegrounds Mobile India doesn’t substantially affect gameplay, barring some differences in visual output, especially on lower-end smartphones.
However, even if GFX tools provide drastic results, users’ accounts may face a ban upon being detected by Krafton’s anti-cheating systems. The reason behind the ban is that if GFX tools are unauthorized, they interact with game clients, and their primary purpose is to cheat in the form of enhanced gameplay (visual) output.
As per Krafton’s strict policy against cheating in Battlegrounds Mobile India, users’ accounts can receive a suspension after performing the following actions:
Employing any cheating tools in Battlegrounds Mobile India
Installing and using an unofficial game client for Battlegrounds Mobile India
Modifying the official game client
Use of unauthorized third-party programs that interacts with game client
Peddling or spamming misinformation in the game or promoting illegal websites (for hacks)
Playing with hackers in a team on multiple occasions
Employing any unauthorized payment method/channel to purchase UC in Battlegrounds Mobile India
Teaming up in solo mode or other teams to get the in-game benefit
Installing any UC generator applications
Gamers can ensure the safety of their in-game accounts by installing Battlegrounds Mobile India via the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store. If users spot and install from any APK links from websites that feature unofficial or cracked BGMI applications, it can also lead to a ban on accounts.
