Garena Free Fire: Advanced tips for Squad mode

Shrey Pacheco   May 20, 2020

Almost all battle royale games, whether is PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty: Mobile or Garena Free Fire let you team up with other players in order to survive. There is usually a Duos mode for two players and a Squad mode for teams of up to four. But you probably already knew this. You’re here to learn a few advanced tactics and strategies to help you win your next team game. 

Before we do that, however, you may want to check out our basic guide to squad matches, just to make sure that you haven’t missed out on anything. Let’s get started.

Use Smoke and Gloo Wall grenades

It may seem obvious, but it is quite surprising to learn that people tend to forget using these handy grenades. These are great for getting cover when trying to revive downed teammates or moving your team from one location to the next without being riddled with bullets. 

Cover each other when moving

Unlike PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile, Garena Free Fire doesn’t really feature a lot of foliage that you can use as cover when moving. As such, it’s a very good idea to move the cover to cover.  When in a team, it’s a good idea to cover the advance of one or two players. These players will then cover the advance of others to their position. Use this to slowly, but surely move towards the circle and possible victory.

Know when to engage enemies

Instincts would tell you to immediately fire upon the first enemy that you see. However, if the enemy has not yet seen you, it might be a good idea to keep an eye on the player to see where the rest of his or her team is located. Further, if you see two teams engaged in battle, you should wait till one team is victorious. You should then immediately attack the weakened team as they heal or revive downed players. 

Flank enemies

If a team is a very defensive position, you should consider splitting up tour team to attack them simultaneously from multiple directions. If done correctly, the team’s defences will be split open as they won’t know which direction to turn. However, do note that splitting up may leave your team open to attack by others.

Consider using bait

Baiting can also be used when faced with a team in a defensive position. However, one player can choose to act as bait. This player should be equipped with heath, armour and defensive equipment like Gloo Wall Grenades. This player can then head to one side of the opposing team and create a lot of noise to draw their attention. This could be done by driving around in a car, shooting wildly, or by throwing grenades. Meanwhile, the rest of the team quickly moves behind the opposing team to catch them off guard.
