The game has received a lot of criticism for its negative effects on young people.

Back in May, a 16-year-old whose name was Furkan Qureshi died after playing the game on his smartphone for 6 hours in a row. And in March, a 20-year-old boy from Jagitial Telanga also died because of severe neck pain caused by playing the game for 45 days. Also this year, a Karnataka boy failed his exam after writing "How to play PUBG game" in his Economics answer sheet. Another case involved two young men who died from a train accident while they were playing PUBG.

Seeing the negative influence the game has on youngsters, in early March. the Rajkot Police issued a ban on the game stating that the game was highly addictive. However, after a huge wave of backlash, the ban was withdrawn one month early.
