What are the Game Modes in Garena Free Fire
Garena Free Fire has several game modes and they rotate often with many of them only available to play one day of the week. The different types of game modes include solo, duos, or in a three-player squad. The Classic mode is a straight forward battle royale game which can currently be played on two maps. Bermuda is the first map a player gets after joining the game. Ranked games are only available in battle royale mode and the map you are ranked in is randomly choosen. check out our What are the Game Modes guide to find out more about them.
When you start Garena Free Fire the game that is selected by default is the Classic mode which is a straight forward battle royale where a total of 50 players compete against each other on one of the two maps. The two maps you can select are Purgatory or Bermuda and the winner is the last man standing.
Ranked Game mode is similar to Classic mode except the map you play on is chosen for you randomly. The biggest difference is the ranking system where you earn points for participating in matches which allow you to advance to subsequent groups (Bronze, Silver, or Gold). The higher the rank the more difficult the game as you will be competing againt more experienced players. Matches played in Ranked Game mode reward you with a 20% bonus on the earned cash and experience points and this mode is only available by default when your character has reached level 10 of experience.
If you want fast-paced gameplay in a small area then Rush Hour mode is for you. This is a straight forward battle royale mode where only 20 players compete against each other and due to the limited space available these matches are usually much shorter in duration. Rush Hour mode is only available once a week (Monday).
Garena Free Fire allows you to host your own server via the Custom tab. The modes available do not differ from Classic, Ranked Game, and Rush Hour. They will not however allow you to earn ranking points as in the case of the Ranked Game mode.
Solo, Duo and Squad
As well as the standard gameplay modes (Classic, Ranked Game, Rush Hour, Custom Game) Garena Free Fire also gives you the option of whether you want to play them alone (solo), with another player (Duo), or in a team of three (Squad). The same battle royale rules apply with the only difference being in death. In solo mode you are eliminated if you are killed whereas in Duo and Squad mode your character is first knocked to the ground where you are given a chance to be revived by allies or permanently eliminated by the enemy.
