Verdict: Who is better?
As mentioned before, Xayne and Maro are new Free Fire characters. While Xayne is currently accessible to players, Maro is yet to be made available.
Xayne is said to be a character who possesses immense strength. She offers 80 HP to players on the battleground, which can be of great help when they run out of medkits. In addition to her healing ability, she also has an aggressive skill that destroys enemy gloo walls and shields.
Maro, on the other hand, can increase damage over distance. It is an incredibly useful ability during long-range combat. He can also increase damage to marked enemies, albeit by a small amount.
