Everything players need to know about the Battle Royale mode in Free Fire

The Battle Royale mode in Free Fire actually follows the theme of the last man standing on the ground.

The mode sees 50 players jumping off of a plane into an unknown island, where they have to search and loot for various weapons and utilities that can help them survive throughout the game to win the match.


The Battle Royale mode also consists of a constantly shrinking circle zone that reduces with a certain point of time.

Players have to duke it out against each other by using the weapons and utilities they find, and finally, the last man standing on the ground wins the match.

Free Fire consists of several game modes other than the Battle Royale mode. However, the BR mode hosts only three maps in the game to play. The maps available in the BR mode are - Bermuda, Kalahari, and Purgatory.

There is no much information officially provided by Garena about Kalahari and Purgatory map's dimensions, but Bermuda is 4x4km.

Purgatory has a much smaller dimension than Bermuda, while Kalahari is the smallest of the arenas in Free Fire.
