Garena Free Fire Tips and Tricks For Beginners

Garena Free Fire is a battle royale game that’s taking the country over by a storm. In fact, some people even prefer it over PUBG Mobile, the game that made battle royale so immensely popular. There are some differences between the two games, but the fundamentals are pretty much the same: Land amongst a horde of other players on an island, loot weapons, and gear, survive till the end and be the last man standing.

If you’re just getting into Free Fire, it might be a little overwhelming at first, figuring out all the different mechanics. That’s why we’ve made this handy guide with all the tips and tricks you’d need to know as a beginner to start winning some games.

Staying in Cover is Important

  • Now, this seems like an obvious one but people tend to forget this. If you’re new, you’ll most probably be playing in Bronze where most of your enemies are AI so you will get pretty confident as you rake up the wins and kills but it will also spoil your game sense a bit as you start to face off against better human players.
  • Always try to be near cover, especially when engaging an enemy as this will give you some breathing room and a place to retreat to in case you are surprised by their presence. If there’s nothing nearby, trees and bushes are your friends, otherwise, try to stick with a bigger and better cover like buildings.

Pick a Safe Drop Point

  • If you’re trying to be defensive and survive the early game without getting into too many fights, try landing far away from the path of the plane. Going to locations that fall close to the plane’s path may lead you to hot zones as a lot of other players do the same. Landing far will increase your chances of survival and also make sure you’re able to get some loot in peace.
  • When playing aggressively, feel free to land in areas that are in the plane’s flight path. This will help you learn how to be quick on your feet, trying to get loot as fast as you can and get you into action early on in the game.

Shoot To Kill

  • Shoot only and only when you’re sure you can secure the kill. Try to take advantage of enemies who are already engaged in a fight and kill them. Another thing you can try is to wait for the enemy to kill whoever they’re fighting, then just as they’re coming out or trying to heal, ambush them and get a kill for yourself.

The Mini Map is Your Best Friend

  • Map awareness is something that will always come in handy. The mini-map at the top shows the directions for enemy footsteps and firing, so keep an eye on the map as you play because that will give you a huge advantage.

Learn to play with different weapons

  • You need a versatile loadout that can help you come out on top, no matter how badly you may get stuck. For this, make sure you acquaint yourself with versatile weapons like assault rifles which can benefit from a variety of attachments as you’ll be relying on them a lot.
  • While a scoped weapon is great for ranged combat and to take out enemies without being spotted, when it comes to close quarters it can be your downfall. If you decide to Aim Down Sight(ADS) with a scoped weapon, your scope will magnify the view and make it hard for you to shoot an enemy who might be close to you and moving. Having an unscoped weapon can help alleviate this issue.

With the help of these tips and tricks, you should be able to bag a few easy wins in the beginning, helping you get used to the game and push your rank. The more you play, you can start experimenting and develop your own play style.

Garena Free Fire Best Graphics Guide For Optimal Performance

Garena Free Fire has a lot of settings and options to play around with before you even get into a match, and if you’re stuck wondering what are the best settings to go with, don’t worry. This guide will provide you a good walkthrough of the settings menu, all its different options and what do to with them. So without further ado, let’s dive into it.

Basic Settings

In the Basic Settings menu, set your Graphics to Standard if you’re using a budget or midrange phone, if you have a high end device, you can set it to Ultra. This will help improve the game’s graphics and you’ll be able to spot the enemies more easily. If you feel like your phone is lagging on the Standard setting, go ahead and set it to Smooth.

For Brightness, we recommend keeping the setting on Very Bright because if the brightness is high, you’ll be able to see your opponents better as you’ll have better vision in darker areas and they won’t be able to hide.

There’s an option for High FPS as well, and if your phone can handle it, keep it on High as it will make your game run smoother and you’ll find it much easier to aim.

It’s best to keep Shadows on Off because it will only reduce your average FPS and in this game, for the most part it won’t even make much of a difference.

If you have a phone with a notch on the screen, turn the Notch option on in the menu.

Finally, for the Mini-Map option, set it to Rotating. This will make sure you never get confused regarding which direction you need to turn to next, or from where you’re being attacked by an enemy. As keeping an eye on your mini-map is important in the game, it’ll come in handy if you always have your bearings.

Sensitivity Settings

Now, let’s talk about the sensitivity settings. Here, we have no problem recommending the default settings as we find that they’re pretty good as such. There are no issues while aiming. In case you feel that the camera movement is a bit too slow or too fast, you should test it out and adjust the settings according to what you find comfortable.

Controls Settings

Coming to the Controls settings. Here also you’ll see a lot of options, but we’ll tell you which ones are the most important for you to set in the beginning.

First things first, keep the Aim Precision setting on default because it’ll make it much easier for you to aim. The Precise on Scope option will help you when you’re aiming without a scope but when you use a scope there won’t be any aim assist. Full Control means you won’t get any aim assist at all at any point.

Most people keep the Aim Precision on default in this game because it makes aiming a lot easier and you can get a lot more headshots.

Next, keep the In-Game tips on Simplified. This will keep the warnings and countdowns on the side instead of the middle of the screen, meaning you won’t have to worry about distractions and you’ll be able to focus on the game and killing your enemies.

The final setting here is the Auto Parachute. It’s better it keep it on as you won’t have to worry about deploying your parachute as you head down at full speed after jumping off from the plane. You’ll be able to land faster and get your hands on some good loot.

Garena Free Fire Celebrates New Year with Special Event and Items

While 2019 was an exceptional year for Free Fire, Garena has big plans for the game in 2020 starting off with a brand-new map and a special one-day ranked event.

Starting on January 1st, survivors are encouraged to pack an extra canteen prior to exploring Free Fire’s newest desert-themed map, Sonoran. In addition to enduring the scorching heat, players will need to outlast each other as they find themselves surrounded by abandoned military buildings, tents, oases, cacti, and … a submarine? How did that get there?

A derelict submarine sitting in the middle of a desert isn’t the only surprise Free Fire has in store for survivors on New Year’s Day. For one day only, the game’s ranked mode will only allow players to rank up and won’t punish their unexpected poor performance by dropping their rank. Those who want to focus on improving their rank will want to take advantage of this special event as it’s only available on January 1st, 2020.

If a new map and a special ranked event weren’t enough to get survivors excited about 2020, Garena is giving Free Fire players a special New Year’s gift. All they need to do is to claim when they log in!
