In its previous combing exercise, Krafton had banned over 50,000 accounts. Meanwhile, Krafton is also collaborating with luxury sportscar brand Lamborghini to bring flashy new vehicles to BGMI.
Krafton announced via a post that 66,233 accounts on BGMI have been banned for using illegal activities in the week from March 28 to April 3. Earlier, between March 21 and March 27, it had banned a total of 22,013 accounts permanently as well. It has also published the list of cheaters.
