South Korean game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has taken over the world, especially with its mobile version, which happens to be extremely popular in India. And though it has been around for a while, people have just realized that there is a Mahindra tractor in PUBG after noticing it in a stream by popular PUBG streamer ‘chocoTaco’ on his YouTube channel.

The Mahindra 265 D1 tractor can be seen on the farms in the desert map of PUBG, called Miramar. The red tractor which is just a static installation in the map even has a transport car attached to it which says ‘Horn OK Please’. And now Twitter is abuzz about this fact from PUBG and can’t stop talking about it.

The executive chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra, who has an active presence on Twitter, took notice of this before long and tweeted, “Ok, I admit I’m embarrassed. I try to keep abreast of the latest happenings in the world but what on earth is PUBG? And of course I’m pleased a Mahindra tractor figures in it. What happens to the tractor, by the way?”

Indian fans of the game are pleased to say that at least by the fact that there is a little bit of India to be found on one of the most popular games on the planet right now. And now PUBG has gained an even bigger fan base in India with this little snippet of information.

Our in-house gamer at BGR India Bodhisatwa Ray says he had noticed this fact a long while back, and regrets that he did nothing to bring it to the social spotlight earlier, considering that it’s clearly a big deal. Nonetheless, if you’re playing PUBG, keep a look out for the Mahindra tractor.
