BGMI Hack - Everything We Know

Searching for info on how to spot and avoid BGMI hacks? Just as cheating was extremely common in PUBG Mobile, so too are they in its India-based successor, Battlegrounds Mobile India. Players use these exploits to rig the game, gaining super abilities that allow them to destroy their rivals and sail to victory.

As you might imagine, that kind of ruins things for everyone else not using cheats. Hacking or modding BGMI is against Krafton's code of conduct, and if you're caught doing it, you'll face the ban pan. That could be a short of ban of between 30 and 90 days, or you could be banned from the game indefinitely – a big price to pay for winning a match.

Do BGMI Hacks Exist?

Yes, BGMI hacks are definitely real. As with many competitive mobile games, such as PUBG Mobile and Free Fire, hacks are a pretty prevalent issue in Battlegrounds Mobile India, and the developer has banned many accounts from the game for using them. For example, Krafton recently announced that it had banned 181,000 accounts for alleged cheating or hacking. If you don't want to get yourself banned, and actually want to play the BGMI fairly, it's best to steer clear.

What Is A BGMI Hack?

They are essentially a form of cheating. Hacks were a problem in PUBG Mobile⁠ – during one week in June 2021, Tencent reportedly banned a staggering three million accounts for using them to modify character models for speed, X-ray vision, and other hacks.

Players have even been banned at the professional level, such as when Tencent was forced to eliminate eleven teams from the PUBG Mobile Club Open in 2020 for using hacks. Similar hacks are often used in BGMI. These exploits and cheats let people mod the game, becoming invisible, seeing through walls, or even using aimbots. It essentially gives them an unfair advantage over everyone else playing the game the proper way.

How Do I Spot and Report A BGMI Hack?

It's pretty obvious if a player is using a hack, as they'll basically be doing something that shouldn't be possible in-game, i.e not dying, making impossible shots, shooting people through walls, etc. If you spot anyone doing this and want to report them, here are the steps you need to take:

  • Record the gameplay involving the hack. Also grab the player's ID if you can.
  • Go to the BGMI Customer Support tab in-game
  • Choose the report ticket and add the ID or name of the person using the hack
  • Upload your footage in the video section, either by adding a link or uploading it from your device
  • That's it. If they were cheating, they'll face the ban pan before too long
