Free Fire offers three maps in the battle royale mode, i.e., Bermuda, Kalahari, and Purgatory. The players have only two choices for the ranked mode – Bermuda and Purgatory, as the third was dropped from the map pool. As the name suggests, players lose or gain points in the ranked mode; simultaneously, the ranks are unaffected in the classic mode.

A regular battle royale match sees around 50 players parachuting on to an island, where the last standing player gets the Booyah. The users have to search for the loot, which is scattered randomly around the map.

The battle royale mode has a feature of the shrinking zones, which gets smaller every few minutes. The players outside of the playing zone will take damage, which increases with subsequent zones.
