It is no secret by now that PUBG has been banned all over Pakistan due to numerous cases reported against the video game. However, this is not stopping fans from playing the game and they are finding different ways to avoid the ban. As we all know, nothing can truly be banned from the internet as people will always find a solution.
In PUBG’s case, people are using VPNs to bypass the ban. This does increase the ping (delay or latency) compared to what players would normally get get, but it is still playable nonetheless.
Normally VPNs are not that good for gaming, but after some testing, we’ve found the ones that give the best results. Here is a quick guide for how you can use VPNs to play the game.
VPN Master is able to provide the best results for online gaming. While others can also ensure low ping, VPN Master is completely free, allows unlimited data, and has a variety of regions you can choose from.
Simply download the app from Google Play Store to get started. Unfortunately, this VPN app does not exist on the iOS App Store, so iPhone users are going to need to use something else. We do have an alternative that people can use on iOS as well (mentioned below).
Once you have VPN Master downloaded, you can select between different regions. Selecting Singapore will usually result in the lowest ping (between 100ms-120ms), but you can also select European countries to get between 150ms to 170ms ping. Do not bother trying India or American regions, as this causes higher ping which makes the experience less than ideal.
Now start the game and select the respective region in the game. For instance, if you chose a European country in your VPN, then select Europe in the game as well for the best results. Select Asia if you chose Singapore.
As mentioned before, this will get you between 100ms to 160ms based on your chosen region.
Make sure to select the right regions (mentioned earlier) in the app and in-game as well to get the lowest ping.
In any case, let’s hope that players do not have to put up with this for too long. PTA is scheduled to announce its final decision soon and that will ultimately decide the fate of the game. Fingers crossed.
