Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) just like most other online multi-player games has a major problem, which are the people who try to cheat to gain an advantage. While they might be making the game easier for themselves, they make the game unenjoyable for others. To keep the game fair for everyone Krafton under its Ban Pan initiative keeps regularly banning players who have been using hacks or cheats. It publishes weekly reports on the number of banned accounts. The company has now published its fourth report for the same.
