Three most popular characters in Free Fire
Every character has special abilities and powers that make them unique and powerful when a player equips them on the virtual battlefield.
However, some characters are more popular choices among Free Fire players. Let us have a look at them:
Jai is a recent character introduced by Free Fire's developers in collaboration with Hrithik Roshan and has instantly become popular among fans. He has a passive ability named Raging Reload.
As Jai's character description says, he is a decorated SWAT commander with the capacity for reloading a gun's magazine automatically by 30% after knocking down an opponent. However, this reloading capability is limited to firearms under the AR, Pistol, SMG, and SG classes.
This character can also be leveled up to six stages, with the maximum magazine reloading capacity of 45% allowing a player to explore more of his/her aggressive attributes.
In Free Fire, DJ Alok has a remarkable ability named Drop The Beat, which has a level 1 functionality of creating a 5m aura that increases the ally movement speed by 10% and restores 5 HP/s for 5 seconds.
It is an active ability that can be boosted up to level 6 with character level up cards. The max level provides the ability to increase the ally movement speed by 15% and restores the HP by 5HP/s for 10 seconds.
He is extremely popular among the players because of his unique and versatile powers, which come in handy for both passive and aggressive players.
As his description says in Free Fire, Hayato is a legendary samurai with a passive but impactful ability called Bushido. After equipping this character, a player's armor penetration increases by 7.5% with every 10% decrease in maximum HP. Once leveled up to 6, with every 10% decrease in maximum HP, armor penetration increases by 10%.
Hayato also has an 'Awakened' and upgraded version. He has an active ability called the Art of Blades, reducing the frontal damage by 20% for three seconds, with a cooldown of 50 seconds.
It is the defensive quality of Hayato that makes him a popular choice in Free Fire. The increment in armor penetration level is quite impressive and can turn the tables while fighting in a 1v1 situation.
