Chrono possesses an active skill known as Time Turner. At its most basic level, this ability can generate a force field that prevents opponents from dealing 600 damage.

Chrono can not only defend himself from attacks, but he can also fire at enemies when within the force field. In addition, his movement speed is increased by 15%.

Chrono's allies inside the force field gain a 10% boost in movement speed when the ability is enabled, with the effects lasting for four seconds. And the results include a 50-second cooldown.

Time Turner, at its most powerful level, increases the player's movement speed by 30%. It also raises the pace of ally movement by 15%. All the results expire after 15 seconds and have a 40-second cooldown.



Both Chrono and Kelly "the Swift" are fantastic characters. They share a similar skill on the battleground that boosts the movement pace. Chrono increases the movement pace of players and allies, while Kelly increases the sprinting speed.

Kelly "the Swift" is more powerful than Kelly. Her awakened version significantly increases the damage dealt by the first shot on target. It can even take down an opponent in a couple of blows.

However, Chrono offers more versatility of usage, with an instant defensive mechanism along with enhanced movement speed.

Though Elite Kelly or Kelly "the Swift" is a strong option on the battlefield, Chrono is a better choice due to his versatility for rank pushing in Free Fire.

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