Five similarities between PUBG Mobile and Free Fire
These are some of the striking similarities between these two BR titles:
1. General rules
Since both games are from the battle royale genre, many rules are similar. In both, the players need to parachute on to an island and loot for supplies. The key is to pick up the best gun so that they can shoot down enemies with ease.
2. Reward system and purchases
Both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire have reward-based systems that allow players to get items and costumes that they can use. The reward systems are tier-based, and are known as the Elite Pass in Free Fire and Royale Pass in PUBG Mobile. Players can also obtain various skins and cosmetics by purchasing these items with real money.
3. Time Zone
Both the games have zones which shrinks with time. The diameter of the circular area decreases every ten minutes. This forces players to face their enemies rather than staying low. If a player is not within the safe site, his/her health decreases gradually, and he/she finally dies.
Both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire offers different maps that players can enjoy While Free Fire offers three maps, named Purgatory, Kalahari, and Bermuda; PUBG Mobile has five maps, called Erangel, Sanhok, Vikendi, Miramar, and Livik.
