PUBG Banned? You Can Try These Games Instead

PUBG Mobile recently got banned in Pakistan following a series of unfortunate events. Having such a large local player base, this, of course, left many looking for alternatives to the battle royale phenomenon.

For that reason, we have put together a list of worthwhile alternatives to PUBG Mobile, some of which could even give you a better time.

1. Call of Duty Mobile

Call of Duty Mobile needs no introduction at this point. The game has always been one of the bests shooters ever made and was launched for mobile for free last year. It not only includes a complete battle royale experience but also brings all the classic game modes such as team deathmatch, free for all, domination, etc. It is, by far, one of the most refined shooter games on mobile.

Call of Duty Mobile is available on iOS and Android.

2. Fortnite

Similar to PUBG, Fortnite is one of the battle royale games that created all the hype around the new genre. However, unlike traditional shooter games, Fornite features a unique gameplay twist and heavily stylized graphics instead. Players can collect resources and build structures to defend themselves or create vantage points to scout and shoot from.

Fortnite is also available for both iOS and Android phones.

3. Free Fire

Heavily inspired by PUBG, Free Fire is a very similar looking battle royale game with loads of characters to choose from and a plethora of weapons. Even though PUBG has better graphics and more options, Free Fire comes with its own set of maps and cosmetics that make it a decent alternative. The games are overall quicker as only 50 players land on the map.

Free Fire can be grabbed from the Google Play Store and iOS App Store for free.

4. Battlelands Royale

Unlike the rest in the list, Battlelands Royale is a bit different. It features a top-down view and graphics even more cartoony than Fortnite, making it look like an arcade game.

Otherwise, it brings a fairly standard battle royale experience where 32 players drop on a large map with shrinking play areas and loads of items to loot all over the map. The game is smaller than the rest and matches last no longer than 3 to 5 minutes, which might be a good thing for some.

Battlelands Royale is available on both iOS and Android platforms.

5. Rules of Survival

Last but not the least, Rules of Survival is another PUBG inspired title that was released shortly after PUBG. It may not be as polished or composed like the rest in the list, especially like the top tier games such as CoD or Fortnite, but it can run fairly smooth if you are able to find the right settings.

The rules are no different. 120 players drop onto an island and hunt loot to be the last one standing. Rules of Survival can be played on both iOS and Android.

This concludes our list of PUBG alternatives. Let us know in the comments if you agree or have suggestions of your own.

  • Authority has banned these types of games for a reason, and you are suggesting alternatives here.

    • Hello i just wanna say that gaming is a big part of our industry and i want to say that parent should control their children

    • Authority has banned this game for 1 negative reason but the didn’t focused on many positive points like; progress in E-sports, Online earnings using PUBG etc.

  • Games are going to be played. Period. PTA should consider deciding time slots during which online games will be allowed. Better make it 9PM-11PM because ping is usually worst at that time :D
    Whats the point in banning just one addictive game anyway? Ancient/antique babus in your govt. need to wake up to realities of the modern world.
    How exactly have they executed this ban? IP range + ports blocked?

    • ya ok time slots. Everybody is not underage that they would require time slots.

  • Players can collect resources and build structures to defend themselves or create vantage points to scout and shoot from.
