PATCH NOTES: OB43

Clash Squad

Cyber Airdrop

Yep, that’s right, you can now purchase the M1887-X directly from the CS Store! Check out what advantages the new Cyber Airdrop brings along!

“Capturing the special Cyber Airdrop will not only get you better equipment than the regular airdrop but also earn you Cyber Points that can be used to purchase powerful items and the almighty M1887-X! You know you want it!”

Rules:

  • Cyber Airdrops will appear in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds of Clash Squad matches.
  • The Cyber Airdrop will be transparent at first and become gradually materialized as you capture it. When transparent, it cannot block bullets, but after materialization, it can act as a barrier.
  • The logic of Cyber Airdrop is similar to Defense Airdrop. Players need to capture the Cyber Airdrop for 10-12 seconds (10s for round 3 and 4, 12s for round 5) to unlock it and can obtain weapons, equipment, and Cyber Points. Unlocking the Cyber Airdrop in the 3rd/4th round will earn your team 1 Cyber Point, and unlocking it in the 5th round will earn your team 2 Cyber Points.
  • If there are enemies in the capturing area, you will need to knockdown the enemies to gain ownership over the airdrop. The airdrop will ultimately belong to the team of the player who is still standing in the capturing area.
  • In the CS Store, there will be a Cyber Item section. For every Cyber Point the team earns, corresponding items in the section will be unlocked. When a team earns 3 Cyber Points, they will unlock the purchase rights for the M1887-X.

Information Optimization on the CS Store Interface

Teammates’ weapon details are now visible on the store interface! Make sure to use such information in your combat strategy!

“New optimization in the preparation stage! Know your teammates’ weapon details, help each other out, and fight better as a team! ”

  • During the preparation stage, the top left corner of the CS Store will show your teammates’ weapon details.
  • New currency notification: You can now notify teammates of your CS Cash amount to assist or ask for help with purchases. Simply tap on the CS Cash amount in the CS Store or use the marking feature to mark the CS Cash amount in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • New weapon drop notification: During the preparation stage of a non-match-point round, players will be automatically notified when their teammates discard weapons.

CS Other Adjustments

  • In Clash Squad, you can now see your enemies’ passive skills.
  • Reduced the size of the round result interface in Clash Squad.
  • Added a countdown timer for the closing of the store in the CS Store.

Battle Royale

New In-Match Quest: Defense Arsenal

Worry no more about where to find the Arsenal Keys.

“This new in-match quest allows you to unlock the arsenal by capturing it, and the arsenal will also scan for nearby enemies!”

  • Defense Arsenal is now in the In-Match Quests pool. Play Battle Royale matches to get a chance to encounter this quest!
  • In a match that activated this quest, players no longer need keys to unlock the Arsenals.
  • After the quest is activated, Arsenal keys will not be lootable on the map or sold in the vending machines.
  • Players can capture a Defense Arsenal by staying within a certain range around it. When the capturing progress reaches 100%, the arsenal will unlock.
  • Having multiple teammates in the capturing range can accelerate the capturing speed of the arsenal.
  • If enemies enter the capturing range, a dispute will happen and the capturing progress will pause until only one team of players remains in the range.
  • After a successful capture, a UAV will appear on top of the arsenal and scan for nearby enemies for the team.
  • The UAV can be destroyed by enemies, after which the arsenal will no longer have the scanning function.

Solo Dare

Be the center of attention, the hero of your team!

“We understand the despair and fear when all teammates are eliminated in a Battle Royale match. We don’t want those lone wolf players in the game to only survive by camping, unable to fully enjoy the thrill of fighting enemies. Therefore, here’s Solo Dare, offering a new and exciting experience for those confident lone wolves.”

  • When all teammates are eliminated, the surviving player can purchase the Solo Dare mission for free from the vending machines. (Excluding Airdrop Vending Machines. Only in Duo/Squad modes.)
  • Survive through the mission time (90s for Duo mode and 100s for Squad mode) to get 400 FF Coins and Super Revival for all teammates.
  • Other players in the match can see the location of the Solo Dare player on their maps.
  • Receive a mystery gift if you eliminate the player who is on a Solo Dare mission!
  • Solo Dare can be purchased a maximum of 5 times throughout a match by all players.

Other Adjustments

Map

Bermuda Adjustments

Peak Rework

Got the guts to land on Peak?

“Bermuda, as the oldest and most popular map in Free Fire, previously had a loot level and terrain design that’s difficult to match with its importance as the highest point on the entire map. This time, we have significantly raised the overall loot level of Peak and renovated its architectural structure, bringing new vitality to this highest peak of Bermuda. Trust me, it’s worth a try.”

  • Reset the entire building layout of Peak. Removed the original buildings and added a whole new estate.
  • Lowered the overall height of Peak compared to other locations, allowing for greater depth of space for battles around Peak.
  • Raised the overall loot density and quality.
  • The new Peak will be available in Clash Squad Casual and Ranked matches.
     

Hangar

New shelters, new routes, is this the Hangar for you?

“We noticed some unsatisfactory experiences in Hangar before the adjustments: for instance, the players who spawn on the right of the elevated curbs have access to the longer side, allowing them to control more areas while having safer shelters; the trees in the middle area could block the view, causing players to be knocked down without seeing the enemy, etc. In response to these experiences, we’ve made some optimizations.”

  • Adjusted the layout of the blue container area next to the billboard. We removed the curbs to weaken the previously strong advantageous positions; in addition, we also adjusted the placement of the blue containers, enhancing the playability of the container area.
  • Removed the two trees in the middle area and adjusted the shelters in the second floor area of Hangar, making the shooting experience on the second floor better.
  • Adjusted the layout of the first floor of Hangar’s buildings. Added an extra door as a passage, providing a new movement route.

Factory

Knock knock, the third floor is descending!

“In response to the excessive height difference within the Factory and the poor experience caused by the dim interior, we have made some adjustments.”

  • In response to the issue of the excessive strength of the third-floor platform within the Factory (which made it difficult to target players on the third floor due to the large height difference), we have made the following adjustments: reduced the height of the third floor and removed the covers on the third floor.
  • Adjusted the thickness of the railings inside the Factory, making them thinner. This is to reduce their impact on aim assist.
  • Brightened the interior of the Factory for better visibility.

Characters & Pets

New Character

Suzy

Bounty Assassin

“Suzy is a formidable bounty assassin who is kind at heart. She has a soft spot for orphans and is willing to continue her profession to prevent them from having a similar childhood as hers.”

Money Mark:

Your enemy markings have bounty value. Anyone on ally team who eliminates a marked enemy will earn 100 in-match currency. You will earn an extra 100 for eliminating an enemy.

Character Rework

Antonio

Antonio can be your strongest support before each battle begins.

“The extra HP provided by Antonio makes him one of the popular choices for defensive skills. In this patch, we have transformed the 40 extra HP provided by him into Shield Points. Although the Shield Points are not affected by armor damage reduction, the new Antonio can ensure your maximum safety before each battle.”

Gangster’s Spirit:

Get 40 extra Shield Points at the start of the match. If no damage is taken after 4s, the Shield Points will begin to regenerate.

Nairi

Own the best Gloo Wall.

“Gloo Walls are the players’ last line of defense. Nairi can make Gloo Walls stronger while providing team-wide healing. Survive on the battlefield amidst the hail of bullets!”

Ice Iron:

Deployed Gloo Walls restore 250 durability per second when hit, during which teammates within 5m restore 20 HP/s. Max. 40 HP per teammate from each Gloo Wall. The Gloo Wall loses its healing effect on teammates if it stays in the Danger Zone for more than 10s.

Shani

Assist or carry? I can do both.

“Shani’s original skill mechanism is no longer suitable for the current gaming environment. The all-new Shani can provide Shield Points for herself and surrounding allies, taking the initiative in the charge.”

Gear Recycle:

When using an active skill, gives 50 Shield Points to self and teammates within 10m. The Shield Points decay after 5s, after which players can obtain the effects again. Cooldown: 10s.

Shirou

Quickly locate ambushing enemies.

“The old Shirou was not clearly defined, being half damage-dealing and half informational. In this patch, we have made Shirou’s positioning clearer, developing towards an informational role. The new Shirou can not only locate ambushing enemies but also share this information with teammates.”

Damage Delivered:

When hit by an enemy from within 100m, said attacker is marked for 6s (intel is shared with teammates). Max. 4 markings.

Character Balance Adjustments

Andrew “the Fierce”

Wolf Pack:

Awakening: Armor damage reduction boosted by 20 → 15%. Additional 10 → 5% damage reduction from every teammate carrying this skill.

Skyler

Riptide Rhythm:

Unleashes a sonic wave forward for 100m. The wave explodes and deals damage to Gloo Walls within a 4m radius for 5 → 6s. Cooldown: 45 → 40s.

Other Skill Adjustments:

  • Moco: Hacker’s Eye can now tag multiple targets.
  • Buffs and debuffs will be displayed in the upper left corner of the health bar.
  • Optimized Sonia and Orion’s control. If players attempt to fire when they are unable to, the action will be executed immediately once the restriction is lifted.
     

Shield Points

A brand new protection mechanism.

“In the last patch, we tried a new shield mechanism. Kapella can provide protection while helping teammates, and Sonia receives shield protection when taking fatal damage. In this patch, we introduced the Shield Points into more characters’ skills. This allows players to get shield protection in more areas and experience different gameplay.”

  • Shield Points
    • When taking damage, Shield Points will be deducted first, but it will not protect against Danger Zone, fall, and constant bleeding damage.
    • Unlike HP, Shield Points will not receive armor damage reduction buffs.
    • Shield Points will have a brand new UI displayed above the HP bar.
    • Added sound effects when hitting the Shield.
  • Characters with skills that provide Shield Points:
    • Kapella
    • Sonia
    • Antonio
    • Shani

Limit on Skill Movement Speed

Why doesn’t my perfect aim hit the target!

“In the world of Free Fire, movement speed is one of the players’ favorite attributes. Players can gain speed boost from various skills, allowing them to quickly seize advantageous positions. Currently, there are no restrictions in the game, and players stacking movement speed can affect the assist aim and disrupt the game balance, making it difficult for players to hit their target in situations where they should hit.”

  • The maximum movement speed boost that players can obtain from skills is limited to 15%.

Weapon and Balance

Weapon Balance Adjustments

Long-distance combats are now vastly different!

“In the past, the exaggerated performance of marksman rifles made the choice of long-distance weapons monotonous. After this adjustment, the performance of rifles and marksman rifles will have a greater difference than before. Rifles will have a greater advantage in medium-distance combat, while marksman rifles will still maintain strong performance at long distances! Come and experience it for yourself!”

Rifle Adjustments:

  • AK47 (Buff): Damage +15%, min. damage +30%
  • Groza (Buff): Armor penetration +8%
  • G36 (Buff): Optimization on the aim assist
  • FAMAS (Buff): Scope speed +50%, min. damage on scope +10%, armor penetration +10%
  • M14 (Buff): Now an automatic assault rifle

Marksman Rifle Adjustments:

  • AC80 (Adjustment): Rate of fire -20%, magazine -20%, min. damage +25%
  • Woodpecker (Adjustment): Damage -15%, reload speed -10%, min. damage +30%
  • SKS (Buff): Magazine +60%, reload speed -20%, scope speed +50%, range +20%, min. damage +40%, optimization on the ease of use

CS Store Adjustments (TBD): 

  • SKS now available in the CS Store, with a price of 1800 CS Cash
  • MAC10 price reduced by 100 CS Cash

Melee Weapon Adjustments – Melee Weapon HP

Like humans, melee weapons also feel pain.

“Due to the characteristic of melee weapons being able to block bullets, the experience of hitting an enemy carrying a melee weapon is too poor for the attacker. Therefore, melee weapons will now have HP, and will shatter after sustaining a certain amount of damage!”

  • Melee weapons have 130 HP
  • After receiving sufficient damage, melee weapons will shatter and disappear

Gameplay

Melee Weapon Finishing Move

Finish the enemy you’ve knocked down with your coolest move.

“All melee weapons, except for pans, will have finishing moves. If you knock down an enemy and have a melee weapon, you can finish them off in a cool move to show off your power!”

  • When a player is holding a melee weapon, they can use a finishing move on a knocked down enemy by getting within a certain range of them.
  • A finishing animation will play when a finishing move is used. Once the animation is completed, the knocked down player will be successfully eliminated.
  • During the process of using a finishing move, you can stop it at any time by tapping the stop button.
  • If the finishing move is stopped midway, the elimination will fail. However, players can re-initiate the finishing move at any time within the appropriate range of the knocked down player.
  • Pan does not have a finishing move.

Optimization for Merged Items in Backpack

“Simplify your operation costs and focus on the fight.”

“After the launch of the item merging feature in the backpack, players can now better organize their backpacks. However, discarding bullets still wastes a lot of time. We have adjusted the initial number of bullets to be discarded, so now you can slide to discard as quickly as when they are not merged.”

  • The initial quantity when discarding bullets under the merged condition has been changed from half to one set (30 bullets).

Loadout Adjustments

Some loadouts have been adjusted for the overall loadout balance!

“Based on their individual characteristics, we have made adjustments to some loadouts. The features of each loadout will now be more distinct!”

CS:

  • Armor Crate:
    • Round 2: Lv. 1 Helmet and Lv. 1 Vest
    • Round 3: Lv. 2 Vest

Quickly Team Up With Friends

Play Again Button

I’m on fire! Next match, fast!

“Now, after completing a match, you can match again without returning to the lobby. Quickly start a new game with your friends and have fun!”

  • During spectating, after Booyah, and on the match results page, you can tap on the Ready/Play Again button to enter the matchmaking for the next match.
  • Your matchmaking settings will be consistent with the previous match when you match for a game through this feature.
  • In special cases, this button may become unavailable due to the inability to match the team members, such as when a member of the team has a low Honor Score or a member is in the midst of Hack Detecting.

Booking Optimization

A warm welcome to our upcoming teammate!

“We have optimized the booking process feature. Now, if you accept a booking, you will automatically join the team after your previous match has ended. Additionally, the team lobby will display who has accepted the team booking and show their game information. Try it out now!”

  • If a player accepts the booking, they will automatically join the team after their previous match ends.
  • If you send a booking to another player and they accept it, their avatar will appear in your team. The ongoing game information of that player will be displayed below their avatar.
  • A team can have a maximum of 3 successful booking slots.

Team Up Optimization

Teaming up is easier now!

“In this patch, we continue to optimize the teaming experience between players. Now, players who are already in a team can still receive invites, especially those who are playing Squad by themselves. You no longer have to worry about your friends not being able to invite you! At the same time, we have also optimized the rules for disbanding a team. Now, if the team leader leaves, it won’t cause the entire team to disband!”

  • Players in a team can now send invites or bookings to another player who is in another team.
  • The team leader can now transfer their title to another player in the team.
  • When the team leader leaves the team, the team will no longer automatically disband.
  • Fixed the issue where a player would automatically leave/disband the team when returning to the lobby after disconnecting during a match.

  • You can only send offline invitations to your Dynamic Duo or Mentor.
  • Invitations will only be received if the FF Push Notification is enabled.
  • Upon tapping the invite notification, the invitee will launch the game and join the team.
     

Custom Room Optimization

Have a customized match with your friends more freely!

“We’ve received feedback from players that there are still some inconveniences when playing in custom rooms. To address this, we’ve made optimizations to help everyone have smoother custom matches.”

  • After creating a Clash Squad room, you can still open the advanced settings and modify the related settings. 
  • We’ve added an Observe setting in the room: whether to allow players to switch to the Observe position (allowed by default). 
  • Disable vibrations for spectators in the room.

Intimacy Scores

Who do you play with the most?

“This patch, we have added a new intimacy system between friends. When you play games together, your intimacy score will accumulate. At the same time, you can also gain extra intimacy scores by sending them likes. So go ahead and send your friends lots of likes!”

  • The calculation of intimacy scores starts after the system is launched.
  • Only the intimacy scores between friends will be calculated. 
  • You can check the intimacy scores on the friends page.

Likes Outside Matches

Send your friends lots of likes!

“We have added a new feature of sending likes outside matches. Whether you missed giving likes to others at the end of a match, want to interact with friends through likes, or express your admiration to your pro teammates, you can do all these outside matches by giving them massive likes!”

  • When the internet connection is good, the connection icon at the top right corner of the lobby is displayed in white. When the internet connection is poor, it is displayed in red.
