Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is one of the most popular battle royale games in India.

Developed and published by South Korean video game company Krafton, BGMI is an online multiplayer battle royale game that was first released for Android devices on July 2, 2021. It was later launched for iOS users on August 18, 2021.

While BGMI has over 100 million downloads on Google Play store, it was banned by the Indian government in July 2022 citing security concerns. The ban was later removed in May 2023.

As many as 100 gamers can compete in the Indian version of PUBG Mobile. The one who survives in the TPP-FPP survival shooter game is the winner. Individuals or a team of up to four gamers can play a match in BGMI.

The popular eSports video game, BGMI can be played as solo, duo, or squad. To make the game more interesting, gamers may add teammates to compete as a duo or a squad. 

Meanwhile, the BGMI offers a variety of weapons that gamers can use to eliminate all other opponents. These weapons in BGMI bear a resemblance to their real-life counterparts. 

Bolt Action Rifles are one of the most powerful weapons in BGMI. The Bolt Action Rifles in BGMI can be used to shoot one bullet at a time and are considered to be most potent in mid to long range battles.

Arctic Warfare Magnum (AWM), Lynx Anti Material Rifle (AMR), Kar98 and M24 are some of the different kinds of Bolt Action Rifles available in BGMI. Know more about these Bolt Action Rifles in BGMI.
