What is a Config File in BGMI?

A config file, short for configuration file, is a type of file that stores settings and preferences for a particular application or game. In the context of BGMI, config files are often used to modify various aspects of the game, such as graphics settings, controls, and even gameplay mechanics. While some config files may be intended for legitimate purposes, many players misuse them to gain an unfair advantage over others, such as increasing frame rates, removing grass, or enabling other cheats.
