#3 New characters

A new character named Xayne will arrive in Free Fire with the new update. The character has an active ability called Xtreme Encounter.

At its base level, this ability will provide players with 100 HP as well as 50% increased damage to gloo walls and shields. All effects last for 8 seconds, with a cooldown of 150 seconds.

At the maximum level, the damage to gloo walls and shields increases to 80%. The cooldown period is reduced to 100 seconds.

Note: The ability stated above is from the OB27 Advance Serve. Some changes might be made to the ability in the official update.

Free Fire’s character UI will receive a facelift in the new update, making it more accessible to players.

With the new changes, players will no longer need to spend any in-game currency to level up their characters. Memory fragments will be enough to do so.

The characters’ normal and awakened abilities will also be combined and will occupy only a single slot when the new update arrives.

#6 Revival Mechanism and Clash Squad store changes

The revival mechanism will be available on all Free Fire maps. Players would have to obtain a revival card and then occupy the revival point to bring back their teammates.

Apart from this, the Clash Squad store will provide a wider range of options for players.

Throwables will receive further optimization. The range of smoke grenades will increase, while flashbangs will be made easier to use.
