Possessing unique attributes, guns in Garena Free Fire play distinct roles according to the combat scenario. Essentially, gamers need to pick firearms as per their proficiency in specific types of warfare and the style of making shots.

Headshots, especially one-tap headshots, are pretty popular shooting techniques in the Free Fire community. Indeed, mastering these techniques is quite a challenging task.

FF players must discover the ideal firearm and optimize several sensitivity settings to offer headshots more efficiently.

Disclaimer: Due to a government-imposed ban, players from India should not play Free Fire. They must use the MAX variant to access their FF IDs. This article is entirely based on the author's personal opinion.

Mobile gamers can use the following sensitivity settings as a reference to adjust their own settings:

  • General: 80-90 (important)

  • 2X Scope: 95
  • 4X Scope: 100
  • Sniper Scope: 60-70
  • Free-look: ~50 (generally, it doesn't play any role in hitting a headshot)
