 New anti-hack systems are being implemented into the game to ensure no one is getting an edge over competitors through the use of unauthorized third-party programs. Permanent bans will be issued to any player who is found to be cheating.

Free Fire’s latest patch also includes the return of Purgatory - Classic, a new version of Bomb Squad with more obvious objectives, additional Emote slots per Survivor, Active Skill Exchange between characters, and the new M82B sniper rifle that’s capable of penetrating the gloo wall!

A new character called Wolfrahh  has also been added along with the first flying pet, Falco. Wolfrahh is a 19-year old Swedish video game streamer and esports player whose in-game skill, Limelight, is powered by his viewers. With every additional viewer that tunes in or every additional kill made, damage taken from headshots decreases by while damage he inflicts on the enemy’s limbs also increases.

You can read the full patch notes here. The patch will go live on June 2nd.
