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

Shrey Pacheco  | Published on 19 May 2020

Almost all battle royale games like Garena Free Fire, PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile and offer multiple game modes. You have the Solo mode that is aimed at people who rather try things on their own. However, one could argue that Duos and Squad modes are probably the most fun mode as they let you play the game with your friends. 

However, it’s not all fun and games as this mode requires very close coordination with your teammates. And if you guys don’t have a strategy in place, then you’re pretty much goners. That is why it’s not enough for players to be good at solo, they need to work as a team in order to achieve final victory. Keeping that in mind, here are a few tips that should help your team 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.
