Garena Free Fire: A beginner’s guide to squad mode

Shrey Pacheco   May 19, 2020

While battle royale games have a solo mode, almost all of them also let you team up with other players. The Duos and Squad mode let you play with either one or three additional players respectively. In fact, it is arguably the most fun part of the game. However, winning this game requires close coordination and strategy. As such, it can be much harder to win if you don’t know what you’re doing. Here are a few simple tips that can help you win! 

Use headphones

Coordination and strategy is key play playing duos or squad. As such, you will need to communicate with your team. So, wear a pair of headphones with a microphone. The headphones will ensure spacial awareness, while also allowing you to coordinate with your team.

Play with friends

While Garena Free Fire does automatically pair you with a team, you are much better off playing with a friend instead of a random player. This will ensure that both of you will speak the same language and can coordinate better. Not only that, but you may play more games together, which should improve your coordination and skill. 

Be clear when calling out enemies

When your team is under fire, it is vital to be very clear about where the attack is coming from. To do this use the compass on the top of your map to call out the position of enemies. Do note that the compass heading may not be the same for all players, ao try and also shout any terrain features to help your teammates even further.

Designate jobs

Before you even land, try and give each teammate a role. One player can be the sniper and as such, will be responsible for providing cover and being the lookout. He/she will also get the best scopes and sniper rifles that the team picks up. Another player can be 'Support' and will carry medic kits and similar items. If you play with friends, you can choose characters that complement their assigned tasks.

Stay close (but not too close)

A team needs to stick together, especially in squad games where enemy teams could easily out-number you. As such, it’s always a good idea to be close enough to cover each other. However, don’t be so close that a majority of the team gets taken out by a mine or any other explosive. It’s a good idea to stick just about close enough to easily cover each other from any enemy fire. 

Hopefully, these simple tips should ensure that you and your team survive long enough to gain victory.
