Strategy is key to victory in Free Fire. Being able to outplay opponents is 50% of the work done. While weapons are invaluable to success, battles can sometimes be won by firing only a few shots.

However, strategy is not just warfare. It ties into character abilities as well. Knowing which one to use during a match is crucial. Two of the most strategic characters are DJ Alok and Clu.


Their abilities open up numerous tactical options for players in Free Fire. One offers instant healing and speed boosts, while the other can detect enemies nearby and reveal their position. Which one is better? Read on to find out.

Note: All abilities are at the characters' maximum level.

Clu's ability


Clu's 'Tracing Steps' ability enables players to locate nearby enemies. When activated, it can detect opponents who are not prone or in a squat position. It has an effective range of 70 meters and lasts for 7.5 seconds with a cooldown of 60 seconds.
