Garena Free Fire, the world’s most downloaded mobile game for a third consecutive year, is the multiplayer game designed to cater for all online gaming preferences. The battle royale game, which is now four years old, was developed exclusively for Android and iOS mobile devices and appeals to a wide range of players from a variety of backgrounds, skill levels and gaming motivation.

Many players get involved purely on a fun level, and to plug into the amazing global community of gamers passionate about mobile gaming, while others are fans of the franchise. They tune in to Garena Free Fire esports events and enjoy the unique content the game and its many global big-name partners produce. Then there is of course the competitive element. Those players who are all about improving their rank. These are the battle-hardened veterans.

Thanks to Garena Free Fire’s unique character system (there are some 45 to unlock currently), the game stands out from others in the battle royale genre. Some of these characters were modelled on iconic names and artists from around the world. Each character has its own unique skill set and each character is more suited to different styles of play. Aside from its appeal to players of various skill and interest levels, another big attraction for the game is that there are various styles of play to suit just about any mobile gamer.

While it is virtually impossible to typecast all the different Garena Free Fire players, there are a few definitive categories we can list. Where do you fit in?

The Rusher

The term ‘guns blazing’ and ‘gun ho’ come to mind. Aggressive rushers have one (often very successful) strategy and that is rushing into a fight without holding back. There are many great rusher characters available, but the likes of Chrono (Time Turner) who, at base level, can build a force field that blocks 600 enemy damage is a popular choice. Xayne is also among one of the most efficient characters. However arguably the best rusher (and strongest character in the game yet) is DJj Alok. Based on the world-famous Brazilian artist, with his ‘Drop the Beat’ character exclusive skill, he can create a 5m aura that increases movement speed and restores HP for nearby allies.

The Camper

While some might call it ‘playing safe’ this strategy is highly effective if executed well. There are times when the best survival strategy is to hide out, stay down and look for an opportunity to seize. Those who are not great at close combat or at shooting people, employ this strategy in every possible scenario. In addition, it is good to make use of snipers such as the likes of Laura or Rafael.

Third-Party Specialist

Something of a combination between the passive tactics of the classic Camper-style player and the aggression of the Rusher, Third Party players tend to hang back and look for an opportunity to present itself. They typically attack when others are engaged in a fight and when one side is critically wounded. This surprise attack strategy often results in easy eliminations.

There are of course a whole host of other types of players, but which one are you?
