We can’t be talking about FPS and survival shooters without Free Fire. Garena Free Fire enjoys a high rating on the App Store and a large fanbase. The game is popular for 50-player battle royale and the 4v4 clash squad matches.

Unlike the classic “battle royale” games, Free Fire is more focused on characters and cosmetic appeal too. For enhanced graphics and gameplay, you can try out the new Free Fire Max.
