The Indian government recently banned PUBG Mobile and 117 other Chinese-owned apps, and following the ban, PUBG Mobile was removed from all the app stores, including Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Players can still download the game on their Android devices using the APK and OBB files, but remember that the game is officially banned in India, so this is done at your own risk. Also note that these downloads are via third-party sources, and we can’t vouch for their security.

The size of the APK file of PUBG Mobile is 54 MB and the OBB is 1.81 GB, so before starting your installation process, make sure that you have enough space on your device to download and install it, and then follow the steps below:

  1. Download the APK and OBB files of PUBG Mobile and locate the downloaded files on your device.
  2. Click on the APK file and tap on the Install button to start the installation process. If you haven’t enabled the installation of apps from unknown sources, then do it by navigating to Settings > Safety and privacy > Install apps from Unknown Sources.
  3. After the APK file is installed, move the OBB file to Android > OBB > com.tencent.ig.
  4. PUBG Mobile is now installed completely. You can now delete the APK file, but don’t delete the OBB data file.
