Free Fire OB41 Update: Here's the Latest Patch Notes featuring New Character, Modes and more
The much awaited Free Fire OB41 update is live, with developers confirming its release date of August 10th, 2023. This forthcoming update promises a wealth of fresh elements for players, including new game modes, a novel character, weapons, and more.
Cyber Drop Innovations in Free Fire OB41 Update
In the upcoming update, the Cyber Drop feature takes center stage, offering not just superior loot compared to regular airdrops, but also Cyber Points that can be employed to procure potent items like the M1887-X. The workings of the Cyber Drop are outlined as follows:
Cybernetic Drops will exclusively manifest in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds of Contra Squad matches.
The Cyber Drop begins as translucent at the round's commencement and progressively materializes like an airdrop.
To unlock and acquire loot and Cyber Points, players must remain within the Cyber Drop area for 10-12 seconds (10 seconds for rounds 3 and 4, 12 seconds for round 5). Gaining 1 or 2 Cyber Points depends on the round.
In case adversaries are present in the capture zone, they must be defeated to claim ownership of the airdrop.
A designated Cyber Item section in the CS Store becomes accessible, where specific items correspond to Cyber Points. Teams accumulating 3 Cyber Points can purchase the M1887-X weapon.
Optimized CS Store Information and Communication
Team members' weapon information becomes visible on the CS Store page, enabling strategic coordination. Enhancements during the preparation phase allow players to exchange weapon information and assist each other, fostering better team performance.
The top-left corner of the CS Store displays friend's weapon information during the preparation phase.
A new monetary notification feature allows players to share their currency status for collaborative purchasing. By tapping the CS money amount or using the tick feature, currency amount becomes visible in the upper right corner.
Players receive notifications during the preparation phase if teammates discard their weapons.
Battle Royale Enhancements in Free Fire OB41 Update
New In-Game Mission: Defense Barracks
A novel in-game quest titled Defense Barracks presents players the opportunity to unlock the Barrack structure by standing in its proximity for a set duration. This Shed not only grants access but also scans nearby enemies.
The Defense Barrack quest is now integrated into matches, particularly Battle Royale. During active quests, the need for keys to open the Shed is eradicated. Barrack keys are no longer found on the map or in vending machines.
Barrack Defense can be unlocked by remaining within the Barrack area. Progress accelerates if multiple teammates are within the vicinity.
Enemy entry into the Defense Shed area halts progress until only one team remains. Upon unlocking, a UAV appears above the Barrack, scanning nearby foes. The UAV's destruction eliminates its scanning capability.
After teammates are eliminated, remaining players can obtain the Pursuit Mission from vending machines in Duo/Squad mode. Successfully surviving the mission duration (90 seconds for Duo, 100 seconds for Squad) earns 400 FF Coins and Super Revival for each partner.
The player initiating the Pursuit Mission is traceable to others on the map. Vanquishing foes commencing the mission yields mysterious rewards. Each player can purchase Pursuit Mission up to five times per match.
Other Battle Royale Alterations
Several adjustments are introduced to the map and loot systems, such as changes in item drops, drop times, and vending machines. Hand Cannons in the blue zone, 40mmSR drop rates, and FF Coin drops are modified. Defense Airdrop timings, counts, and normal airdrop counts are also revised.
Item and Vending Machine Refinements
Corrosion Grenade's effects are tweaked, airdrop light effects are modified, and vending machines see substitutions like the AK47 for the MP40 and more.
Other Gameplay Improvements
Various optimizations and tweaks are introduced to enhance the overall gameplay experience. This includes adjustments in the profile, UI sound effects, character abilities, and lobby interactions.
Introduction of New Character: Suzy
Suzy, a formidable bounty hunter with a compassionate side, joins the game. She possesses unique abilities that involve in-match currency rewards for eliminating marked enemies.
Bermuda map undergoes significant alterations, revitalizing the highest point of the map, Peak. Modifications include a revamped layout, improved loot density, and architectural updates. Similar improvements are seen in the Hangar and Factory maps, enhancing gameplay dynamics and shooting experiences.
Wrap-up and Update Details
The Free Fire OB41 update is set for August 10th, 2023. Players are advised to update to the new version to enjoy all the exciting new features and improvements in this update.
