Yesterday, Garena put up a post on Instagram announcing that they have something special coming up in Free Fire for Christmas. The post read ‘Dear Survivors, Winter is coming to Free Fire! And it is bringing along some really cool and fun things your way!’.
While this may indicate another event going live on Christmas day, since the post there has been a small update to Free Fire which brought in the XMAS day celebrations event to the game. The event features multiple rewards up for grabs for completing missions in the game including Booyah in BR 0/1 times which gets you Pan - Winterland 2020.
The event is a teaser for what seems to be a larger event which will go live, two days from now on Christmas day 25/12/2020 and end the next day. As of now, there are 3 missions to be completed, each offering up its own reward.
The first mission involves playing the game with a squad or team 3 times. This mission gives you 3 Winterlands Weapon Loot Crates. Each crate can be opened to receive a random weapon skin from the Winterlands set. The second mission is to get a Booyah in BR one time which gets you the festive Winterland 2020 pan. The third reward is 10 Weapon Royale vouchers which expire on 31st January 2021, so make sure to claim it soon. This mission requires the players to get 3 Booyahs in BR.
A lot of players seem to be confused with what BR means. BR is short for Battle Royale, which is the classic game mode in Free Fire. Players can play BR on Bermuda and Kalahari in modes like classic and clash squad.
BR or Battle Royale is an online multiplayer game that drops many players, who start with no guns, ammo and items, on to a map. They must down all the other enemies while avoiding stepping outside a safe area which is also called the play zone or circle, with the winner being the last player or team alive. The BR genre was popularised by a Japanese movie of the same name and turned into a game by many developers. Like Free Fire, PUBG Mobile is another example of a BR or Battle Royale game.
