The restriction on Garena Free Fire has gotten a lot of attention, but did you realise that other titles like PUBG Mobile and Badlanders were previously banned? Check out the list of apps that aren’t allowed.

The suspension of Garena Free Fire has shocked fans. But don’t worry, you’re not alone!

Garena Free Fire Banned

The popular game Garena Free Fire has been banned in India due to national security concerns. Many of the show’s Indian followers were taken aback! As soon as the news broke that the Indian government had blocked 54 Chinese apps and that Garena Free Fire had been prohibited.

It sent shockwaves throughout the fandom. Garena Free Fire will not be available for download on Android or iPhones as a result of the prohibition. Those who have the game already downloaded on their smartphones can play it, but this may not be for long. They may, of course, play Garena Free Fire Max, a more advanced version of Free Fire that is still accessible for Android cellphones. Garena Free Fire Max has not yet been deleted from the Apple App Store, however it has been banned from the Google Play Store.

This was not the first time, though, that Chinese apps were suddenly banned. A number of other mobile games were previously prohibited in India.

PUBG Mobile Lite

PubG Banned

PUBG Mobile India, one of the most popular games, was banned by the Indian government in 2020, citing security concerns owing to its ties to China. After a few months, though, PUBG enthusiasts were relieved to learn that the game has returned in the guise of Battlegrounds Mobile India. It was first released in July of last year.

Even Krafton’s most recent game, PUBG: New State, is now available for Indian players. Krafton is a South Korean company that cut ties with China when it launched these new games in India. PUBG Mobile Lite is a mobile version of the popular game PUBG.

The Indian government has also banned PUBG Mobile Lite, in addition to the main PUBG Mobile game. PUBG made a reappearance in the shape of BGMI, but there is no official word on when the Lite version would be released, despite fans’ desires for it.


Badlanders is one of the 54 recently prohibited apps in India, and it is one of the games that has been banned alongside Garena Free Fire. NetEase Games is the game’s developer.

Cyber Hunter

Cyber Hunter by NetEase Games was one of the 118 Chinese apps banned in India in 2020. It was released in 2019 with a sci-fi concept and futuristic survival shooting weaponry.
