Free Fire will feature a new addition to its armory through the new Marksman Rifle, the AC80. The same weapon was also a part of the Advance Server, and many expected its arrival to the game. The AC80 will be the fourth gun in the Marksman category.

Although Garena has not revealed any official stats, judging by the gameplay videos of Free Fire streamers, the AC80 promises an excellent rate of damage inflicted.


3) New features coming for Clash Squad

Previously in Free Fire’s Clash Squad mode, players were required to purchase each weapon at the beginning of each round manually. However, after the OB29 update, players can request their desired gun from their allies.

The new "Request" option will come in handy whenever players require a specific gun but have a shortage of points. The latest update will also allow gamers to don a backpack through the collection section.


4) Changes in weapons and characters
