Why players should get DJ Alok after the OB27 update in Free Fire
#1 - DJ Alok's ability
Drop the Beat is a skill that DJ Alok possesses. At its base stage, it generates a 5m aura that increases the alliance movement speed by 10% and recovers 5 HP/s for five seconds (level 1).
DJ Alok can improve his skills with the aid of universal fragments. Also, the maximum level of Drop the Beat increases the alliance movement speed by 15% and restores 5 HP/s for 10 seconds.
#2 - Best for assisting teammates
Being a powerful yet versatile ability, DJ Alok's Drop the Beat is also very beneficial in assisting allies/teammates in Free Fire.
Only very few characters have the ally assistance ability in the game, and out of them, DJ Alok's ability is the most significant one. The skill increases the movement speed of allies inside the aura. It also significantly helps teammates during squad fights.
#3 - Chrono has been nerfed
Before the OB27 update, many players were willing to opt for Chrono instead of DJ Alok, as Chrono was equally powerful.
However, after the OB27 update, Chrono has now been nerfed, and his ability has a huge cooldown. This is a major disadvantage for Chrono. Therefore, DJ Alok once again emerges to be the best character in Free Fire.
#4 - Best for skill combination
DJ Alok is the best character for skill combination. It merges and complements the skills of every other character who couples with him. Even the weakest characters in the game can get a buff when DJ Alok combines with them on the battleground.
#5 - Best for Ranked and Clash Squad matches
DJ Alok's ability is ideal to use for Ranked and Clash Squad matches. His ability allows players to play both aggressively and passively. Hence, defensive players in Ranked mode and aggressive players who like to go for kill counts in the Clash Squad mode can opt for DJ Alok.
