As per his in-game description, Chrono is a bounty hunter from another universe and has an active ability called Time Turner. 


At his primary level ability, Chrono can create a force field that can block 600 damage from enemies. He can also shoot at opponents while being inside the force field. His movement speed also increases by 15%.

Allies within the force field get a 10% increment in movement speed, with the effects lasting for four seconds. The ability has a cooldown of 50 seconds.

When Chrono is maximized to level 6, his ability sees a significant boost.


Hayato's ability in Free Fire

Hayato is a legendary samurai with a passive ability called Bushido. His ability increases armor penetration by 7.5% with every 10% decrease in maximum HP.

Once leveled up to 6, the armor penetration increases by 10% with every 10% decrease in maximum HP.

Once leveled up, Hayato sees a major boost in his abilities.

Who is better?


For the Ranked mode games in Free Fire, players need versatile skills on the ground. In that case, Chrono is a better option over Hayato.

Chrono has a much versatile skillset along with a blocking and speed enhancing ability. He is the best option for passive and aggressive players in Free Fire, while Hayato only has defensive abilities and is not as versatile as compared to Chrono.

Disclaimer: The choice of a character is an individual decision, and prioritizing one over the other solely depends on the playing style of an individual.
