Pushing your rank in Garena Free Fire can be a daunting task, and getting to Heroic is by no means an easy feat. That’s why we’ve prepared these handy tips to help you get those kills and push your rank to Heroic without a lot of hassle. Without further ado, let’s take a look at them.
1. Run and Gun
The first tip, which is also our favourite and highly useful is about how to get up quickly when you’re in the prone state. Normally, if you go prone and are lying down, it takes some time to get up. But if you didn’t know, there’s a trick that lets you stand up almost immediately. If you press the Run and the Gun buttons together at the same time, your player will stand up instantly and start running. This is a very useful technique in almost any fight where you need to change positions quickly. In some cases, it can even save your life, as you can get up and start running immediately if someone starts firing at you.
2. Play on the edge of the shrink zone
Generally, the shrink zone in Free Fire would be your biggest enemy, but if you play smart, it can actually be pretty helpful for you. To take advantage of the shrink zone, you need to be able to play right at its edge. This will make sure you don’t have to worry about a lot of angles. If you’re in the center, you’ll have to be mindful of all directions and keep looking around all the time, but if you’re at the edge, that won’t be the case. Because most of the time, enemies won’t be able to sneak up on you from the back or the side, giving you some room to breathe. Additionally, you’ll also find a lot of people panicking and running into the safe zone from outside and you’ll be able to pick them off as they’ll be more worried about making it to the safe zone and may not pay much attention to you.
3. Practice with the Sniper to Improve Your Aim
If you want to improve your aim in Free Fire, the best way to about it is by using the Sniper Rifle. You might find it a bit difficult to use it in the beginning, but it’ll be really helpful in the long run. Mainly because with all the other gun, you can hold your aim while spraying and still manage to get some kills. But with the Sniper, each shot counts, so you’ll automatically pay more attention and be more careful while aiming.
4. Keep your close-range weapon as Primary
Always keep a close-ranged weapon on you in the game, for instance a shotgun like the M104, or an SMG, like the MP40. And make sure that your close-range weapon is always in the top slot, as your primary weapon. This will help you in fights when you need to swtich from your grenade or secondary weapon if an enemy suddenly comes right in front of you, increasing your chances to get a kill.
5. Don’t ‘Jumpshoot’
One common mistake that a lot of people make is that they jump while shooting, aka jumpshoot. A lot of times it doesn’t work and instead, makes it easier for the enemy to kill you. When you’re jumping, you can’t move a lot while you’re in the air so it becomes easier for your enemy to aim at you. That’s why we suggest you to stay on the ground and try to kill your opponents as quickly as you can.
6. Aim up when spraying to get headshots
One way to finish your enemies is by getting headshots on them. And an easy way to do that is to aim up while spraying, towards their head. Normally you’ll be tempted to pull down while spraying, but if you hold and try to aim up instead, it can do wonders for your game and net you some quick kills.
7. Play Solo vs Solo To Push Your Rank
If your aim is to get to Heroic and you’re trying to push your rank, the best thing to do is play solo games. This way you won’t have to worry about teammates, whether they’re your own or the enemy squads’. Getting kills will be much easier and you won’t have to take any unnecessary risks.
Following these tips and tricks will hopefully improve your game significantly, helping you reach the Heroic bracket fast. Stay tuned for more Free Fire guides, and don’t forget to check regularly for helpful tips for all your favourite games.
