The player count of Free Fire has seen a massive upsurge ever since its debut globally. The numbers have not stopped growing as Garena's flagship battle royale shooter has become the third-ever game to hit one billion installs on the Google Play Store. However, the in-game difficulty level has also enhanced.

Beginners find it harder to rank up considering the experienced users' skill-set these days. Character abilities help survive, but it boils down to an individual's skill level that earns them victory. Hence, grinding hard in the BR mode becomes essential to acquire experience.

However, these days, many gamers are using unjust means like headshot hack mods to improve their in-game capabilities unfairly. These modified APK files are more widely available on the internet these days, which has made their usage quite frequent in Free Fire, but they are illegal and can lead to permanent bans.

Headshot hack mods are modified APK game clients that help players use the aimbot. The hack will allow them to hit clean headshots effortlessly while also letting users adjust several other settings.

According to Garena's policy mentioned in "Ban Notice" on their website, gamers' accounts will get suspended if they are:

"Using modified or unauthorized game client."

Additionally, the account will face a ban if they are found:

"Modifying model files to gain unfair advantages."

Hence, users must avoid using any game mod that Garena has not authorized. The ban will block their accounts and ensure they cannot use another account on the same device (device ban).

Gamers must also avoid the following hacks if they find any on the internet:

  • Wall hack
  • Diamond hack
  • Jump hack
  • Speed hack
  • Recoil hack
  • Ammo hack
  • Unlimited gloo wall hack

Additionally, they should report fellow players during matches if they suspect any unfair gameplay. They will need the screenshots and screen recording as proof, which they can submit after a Free Fire match.
