Character system and skills enhancements

Under the adjusted character system enhancement, Free Fire characters can now be purchased with gold as an alternative to diamonds, which means players are free to try out a more diverse combination of characters and skills. Additionally, all characters will be automatically equipped with maximized skill abilities upon unlocking.

Multiple characters will also receive freshly optimized skills in the latest patch updates. These updates include:
  • Awakened Alvaro - Split Blitz: This explosive skill splits fired grenades into multiple new grenades, dealing higher damage to enemies.
  • Xayne - Xtreme Encounter: When activated, players will immediately see a boost in maximum HP and healing effects.
  • Dasha - Partying on: Players will gain an increase in fire rate and movement speed after a knock down. When used as an active skill, knock downs will also extend the skill duration.
  • Otho - Memory Mist: When knocked down, activating this skill creates a mist that slows down and marks the enemy for a limited time.
  • Ford - Iron Will: This active skill will enable players to gain HP recovery when taking damage.

Battle Royale mode - New system in-match quests and Super Revival Card Those on the hunt for more Booyahs in the Battle Royale mode will enjoy the new system in-match quests that unlock benefits such as additional 15 airdrops in the Safe Zone, and the Super Revival card, which grants players more advanced weapons and armor upon respawning.
