B. In-game Currency
Players can make a purchase in the game via the in-game currency called Diamonds. Diamonds are to be purchased by players using the real world currency. Players can either buy Diamonds from with-in the game or by third party websites such as Codashop etc.
C. Free Fire Maps and Battle Royale Mode
Free Fire hosts 3 sets of Maps – Bermuda, Purgatory and Kalahari. It has recently introduced a remastered version of Bermuda map which has created a new enthusiasm amongst the Free Fire community.
A player can land on any of these maps by either playing Solo, in Duo or in a 4-man Squad. The players depending upon the flight path can choose a location to loot prepare themselves for the in-game battle with other players.
The objective of the player is to defeat all enemies and stay alive till the end to win the match and to meet this objective the map is filled with items such as guns, grenades etc. The area on the map marked as blue is a high tier loot zone. With the start of the game, a safe zone is formed which is indicated on the map as a white circle. Players objective is to reach this white circle/ safe zone before time runs out.
Bermuda is the most played map on Free Fire and the reason for it, is its layout.
A user can only play Purgatory map once he/she reaches level 5. This map offers zip lines to connect a player to various parts of the Purgatory map.This map is split into 3 sections by a river and this may remind some of the PUBG players of Sanhok map.
The last map offered by Free Fire i.e. Kalahari, has the ability to take you on a Desert Safari. This map derives its inspiration from Kalahari Desert of Southern Africa.
D. Clash Squad Mode
This mode give the players a feel of Team Death Match or TDM. This mode divides players into 2 teams: Warbringers and Howlers and each team consists of 4 players. Player can either rank up by opting for rank mode or can play a non-ranked casual mode. Before the start of each round a player is given certain sum of virtual currency to buy items such as weapons, vests, etc. The virtual currency increases in the next round depending upon kills and round win. The team that first wins 4 rounds is crowned victorious. This is a great mode for players who want to enhance their skills or go for a new loadout which they otherwise will not in a Classic match.
