PUBG Mobile is currently the best mobile game in the Indian market, drawing millions of players across all age groups. However, the game is rather graphically intensive – not every mobile device would be able to run the thing. To solve this problem, a lot of PUBG Mobile gamers resort to the use of GFX tools.

What are GFX tools?

Those are third party applications that can unlock the game’s 60FPS, Full HD graphics, and other settings. These tools are usually available on the Google Store and iOS App store. Beside unlocking higher graphics settings, they can also lower them - enable weaker phones to play PUBG Mobile at an acceptable performance.

However, this can actually affect the balance of the game, as lower graphics would disable a lot of the game’s extra details like glass density, which leads to an unfair advantage for people who used the software. This is probably why Tencent is cracking down on users of this software and handing out permanent bans.

How do they work?

Some of the tools would modify the game’s texture files, allowing players to reduce lag on their system by doing so. However, touching those files is illegal – the anti-cheat software from Tencent would check the integrity of the game files very frequently, flagging accounts that have the files changed.

But there are definitely ways to use a GFX tool - if the settings you are using don’t touch the game files. These details usually vary case by case – you should just pick the most popular option on the play store like GFX Tool for PUBG by TSOML.

How to use GFX tool without getting banned?

It is best to turn off the tool after each major update of the game to wait for the tool’s developer to catch up. Sometimes PUBG Mobile’s developers would update the anti-cheat software – and you might get banned if your GFX tool is not yet updated to counter it.
