How to play Free Fire
Free Fire is a free-to-play battle royale game developed by Garena. In Free Fire, you land on a barren island. You look for weapons and resources that increase your chances of survival and then you go on eliminating other players; you win the game if you are the last remaining survivor. In 2019, Free Fire was the most downloaded mobile game. And received the award for ‘Best Popular Vote Game’ from Google Play Store. This guide is targeted towards gamers who are new to the Free Fire game. And want to learn the game from its core basics.
How to download and install Free Fire?
Visit the Google Play Store in Android devices or the App Store in iOS devices. Search for ‘Garena Free Fire’ and click on ‘Install‘. The size of the application is around 570 MB. After installation, you will be asked to make a guest account. Or link your account via Facebook as that will save your profile in-game.
Free Fire Game modes
You can play in solo mode, duos, or in a three-player squad. The classic mode is the battle royale game, which can be played on two maps at the start of 2020. The first map that’s available to new players is Bermuda, which was the first map introduced to the game. Ranked games are only available in battle royale. Unlike in PUBG Mobile, you can’t choose the map of your ranked games they’re randomly chosen.
The other game modes rotate often and many of them are only available one day of the week. Like Rush Hour on Mondays, Spray and Pray on Thursdays, and Fully Charged on Wednesdays. This means that you can log in and see a different offer of game modes every day.
Characters and pets
Unlike Call of Duty, Mobile, weapon skins and all other customization items don’t give any bonuses that will help you win. But there are still means to get little advantages in the games with items: characters and pets.You get free characters at the start of the game, but they don’t grant any bonuses. There are several characters that you can loot in crates or buy with diamonds to get little buffs, however.
Ford, for example, can reduce damage taken outside of the safe zone up to 10 percent and Andrew can reduce vest durability loss up to 12 percent. Pets can help you in different ways. The Spirit Fox, for example, allows you to restore more health when using a health pack and Shiba will help you notice the mushrooms around you that grant time-limited bonuses. Some pets must be purchased with diamonds, but others can also be earned by farming events, like the Night Panther.
Use the Minimap to your advantage
The minimap shows any nearby players that are shooting. This should be at you, or at another player. However, the map will not only show you the location of the enemy players, but also the direction in which they are shooting. This means that you can actually sneak up behind an opponent attacking another player and take them out.
Your Reticle is your friend
One unique aspect of Garena Free Fire is that your reticle changes colour the moment an enemy is in the crosshair. This means that you can use it to ‘scan’ areas where you think an enemy may be. If it changes colour, an enemy is in your sight. You can then fire and get a few hits on the enemy.
Vehicles are your best friends
Found a vehicle early in the game? Taking it is the best option that you have to survive. Keep in mind, the vehicle should be a fully covered one and not a bike, because other players can easily take aim when you are on the latter. Take the vehicle and start moving inside of the safe zone and outside the shrink zone. If you spot an enemy, you can simply drive the car over them. Or your teammates can shoot them.
Burst fire to success
While the game has recoil, it’s not exactly reflected when firing weapons. So when you fire your gun, your reticle does not bounce around as it does in a game like PUBG Mobile, even when you’re looking down the sights. This means that you should be able to track your enemies without much difficulty. As such, all you need to do is fire in bursts to ensure good hits.
Know when to fire
As with any other battle royale game, it’s very important to realise that it’s not about getting the most number of kills. It’s about survival. So it’s perfectly fine to sit in a corner and wait till the end. If you have to fire, make sure that it’s either in self-defence, or you’re guaranteed a kill. As we said before, the minimap will not only give away your position but also your orientation. Remember, you could kill 48 people on the map and still lose as the other guy just needs one kill.
Garena Free Fire is a game of characters. Choosing the right character according to your play-style can make a lot of difference in the matches. So, always choose the character that suits and complements your playing style.
