Garena has announced that it will be making some major changes to the abilities of Chrono, the in-game character that was released around this time last year. The character is based on footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo and comes with an active ability that creates a force field around the user. Called Time Warp, this lets players fire out from inside the field, while any attack would be absorbed for a limited time. With the new update, the characters will be nerfed to a very high degree.

Chrono nerfed in Garena Free Fire

Garena will be nerfing the active ability of Chrono. After the update, players on the inside of the force field will no longer be able to fire through the shield. To counter this, the HP of the shield has been increased to make it more durable. As one might expect, these changes haven’t gone well with players, especially considering the fact that this isn’t the first nerf made to the character.

Nerfing in multiplayer games is usually done to ensure a fair and balanced game. Garena obviously thought that Chrono was slightly overpowered and gave players using him a bit of an edge in competitive play. 

Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t the only real-world celebrity to feature as an in-game character. A notable inclusion in this list was Hritik Roshan who had a character called Jai who was modelled after him. Jai is described as a decorated SWAT commander. As one might expect from such a backstory, the character is well versed with weapons and his ability reflects that. Jai has a passive ability called Raging Reload. This ability automatically reloads Jai’s weapon by up to 30% of its capacity when he takes down an opponent. However, this is limited to assault rifles, pistols, SMG, and shotguns. This makes Jai quite a good choice for players who are almost constantly pushing opponents and taking on enemies. However, the character was removed from the game in July this year.
