Le all pubg and free fire lover
You have to look at everyone, aside joke, and decide what you want to play. Pubg is now prohibited. The options are FF and COD, but this is why I don’t play FAUG separately, because I have to play for fun. Our game, our country game 🇮🇳🇮🇳#FAUG https://t.co/n66U9g5hOa pic.twitter.com/gWcOqlXLGA
