Both Skyler and Chrono have impressive active abilities; however, in terms of versatility and better use on the ground, Chrono will be the best choice.

Chrono is one of the best characters in Free Fire, possessing an incredible ability to defend enemy attacks from within an instant shelter, which also speeds him up.

Skyler also has an impressive ability to destroy gloo walls and gain HP by deploying them, but it is not as good as Chrono's.

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