The cosmetic items in PUBG game received numerous codes since March of 2017, and there were over 5 million item codes that worldwide players did receive through multiple events and promotions. These distributed codes didn’t have any expiration dates, causing a lot of bad cases when the codes were not used for the intended purpose, or even being exploited. Therefore, the development team made a decision on deactivating the current item codes so they can stop the misuses and will be able to advance a better item economy.

Thanks to the new change to the Bonus/Gift Code Policy, players will have new chances to gain more item codes via many events and promotions in the forthcoming time.
