A teenage boy from Punjab spent a whopping Rs 16 lakh on popular battle royale game PUBG making in-app purchases. The 17-year-old spent money from his parents’ account to buy in-game cosmetic items, artillery, passes for tournaments, and virtual ammunition. According to the parents, the money was set aside as savings for the Kharar-based boy’s father’s medical expenses.

PUBG’s main source of revenue is in-app purchases where users pay for Unknown Cash (UC) to buy a wide variety of items. The battle royale game has faced flak for its addictive nature, mainly in teenagers. Earlier in the month, the app was banned in Pakistan along with Call of Duty mobile.
