Garena Free Fire is a survival, third person shooter battle royale mobile game where you start off in an airplane which drops you on a remote island where you have to gather weapons and items to defeat your opponents to become the last one standing. You have 4 weapon slots, with 2 primaries, 1 pistol and 1 melee. After a certain amount of time, there will be a safe zone in a white circle which you must go inside before it shrinks and if you are outside the safe zone you will take damage over time.

Cheats, Tips and Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include finding weapon mods and using Gloo Wall for protection. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Pick Up Everything
As soon as your boots have hit the ground you need to pick up everything you find regardless if it is weapons, consumables or grenades. The most important thing at this point is to get your hands on a weapon you can use to defend yourself from enemy attacks. You can throw items you don't want out of your backpack later in the game.
Use your Mini-Map
Make sure you regularly check your mini-map as it provides valuable information about what is happening around you. It will also help you from taking unnecessary risks. Check out our What are the Game Modes page to find out what features Garena Free Fire has to offer.
Manage your Inventory
The default space in your backback is limited, you can carry no more than 2 weapons and only a certain amount of ammunition, grenades or medicine. There are three backpack levels, the higher the level the bigger capacity it will have. When you find a better backpack it can be collected automatically by going through it.
Best Weapon Combinations
Ideally in Garena Free Fire you should have two different types of weapons, one for close and another for long range combat. The best combination of weapons is the assault rifle and machine gune or assault rifle and sniper rifle.
As you only have a limited amount of space in your backpack you need to ensure that the only ammunition you collect is for the weapons you are using. Check out our What is Luck Royale page to find out about the Weapon Royale feature which will enable you to obtain various skins and ugrades for your weapons.
Find Weapon Mods
Pay attention to weapon mods lying on the ground as these can significantly improve the effectiveness of your weapons. This includes mods that increase the weapon's magazine, upgrade the barrel or install a silencer. When you move move over a mod that is compatible with a weapon you have it will automatically be collected.
Items dropped by fallen enemies will be in small black boxes with a skull. It is always worthwhile collecting them as enemies carry various items, including weapons and ammunition. Check out our What are Air-Drops page to find out everything you need to know about these supply crates that are dropped periodically in Garena Free Fire.
Use Gloo Wall for Protection
Gloo Wall is a special grenade that allows you to set up a temporary cover that will protect you from enemy fire. Use Gloo Wall when you are faced with an incoming vehicle by setting up a barrier between yourself and the vehicle so you don't get hit. Remember though that the created wall will fall apart after one blow. Check out our How to Heal Characters page to find out how you can make your hero regain their health.
Avoid using Vehicles
Although vehicles you find are useful for getting around the map quicker they are best avoided as it's very easy to hit the driver even if you're not a sharpshooter. This is due to the targeting assistance system which activates while aiming a weapon. The only exception to this is the blue pickups which have a fully enclosed cab which makes it impossible to use the automatic aiming option to shoot the driver. A big disadvantage with using vehicles is they are noisy which makes it easy for enemies to locate you.
