Everything About the Free Fire OB41 Update: New Modes, Characters, Weapons, and More!

Clash Squad Enhancements and Innovations

The latest update introduces a host of exciting improvements to the popular Clash Squad mode, enhancing the tactical and strategic gameplay experience for players. Let’s delve into the new key feature, Cyber Airdrop, as well as the adjustments to Clash Squad:

Cyber Airdrop

Introducing the Cyber Airdrop, a dynamic addition to Clash Squad that promises both strategic depth and enticing rewards. Appearing in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds, the Cyber Airdrop starts transparent and gradually materializes upon capture. With a capture duration of 10-12 seconds, players can unlock a trove of superior gear and Cyber Points, the latter of which can be used to acquire powerful items including the coveted M1887-X shotgun. Secure the airdrop’s ownership through tactical prowess, as contested areas require you to knock down adversaries. Accumulate Cyber Points to unlock items in the CS Store, and with three points, earn the privilege to wield the formidable M1887-X. Get ready to revolutionize your Clash Squad experience with this electrifying twist!

Miscellaneous Adjustments

Several enhancements have been injected into Clash Squad to elevate your gameplay. The allocation of CS Cash in the initial rounds has been recalibrated for a more balanced progression. Moreover, a tactical advantage awaits as you can now see your adversaries’ passive skills.

The changes also include UI improvements, including the fact that the round result interface has been streamlined to offer a more immersive experience. Additionally, shopping in the CS Store has never been more convenient with the inclusion of a countdown timer, ensuring you don’t miss out on valuable opportunities.

Battle Royale Adjustments and Additions

Battle Royale enthusiasts, brace yourselves for a wave of exhilarating changes and additions.

Defense Arsenal Mission

Starting off with the new Defense Arsenal BR in-game quest. Say goodbye to the hunt for Arsenal Keys as capturing the Arsenal now grants access without the need for keys. But that’s not all; the Arsenal has received an upgrade with a scanning function, enabled after a successful capture, providing your team with valuable reconnaissance information. Multiple teams and players can fight over dominion of the Arsenal, as it can only be captured once one unit remains and no enemies are present in the immediate vicinity.

Solo Dare Mission

For those daring solos, the “Solo Dare” mission is your ticket to become the hero of your squad after teammates have met their fate. After all teammates are eliminated, the last surviving player can pick up the Solo Dare mission from any vending machine for free. By surviving the timer, players will not only score FF Coins, but they will also receive a Super Revival for the entire team, which works similarly to how the “Most Wanted” contracts function in Call of Duty. However, eliminating a Solo Dare participant might just grant you a mystery gift, so it’s always worth keeping an eye out for other players trying to bring back their squads.

Miscellaneous Adjustments

There have been notable adjustments that shape the Battle Royale experience, including changes to loot distribution, item attributes, and vending machine offerings. Additionally, the introduction of airships and adjustments to airdrop timings bring fresh dynamics to the gameplay. To delve deeper into these enhancements, refer to the official patch notes for comprehensive details.

New Game Mode and Adjustments to Training Grounds

Garena is introducing the revived Zombie Hunt mode with a captivating twist: Double Evil. In this mode, challengers will have to conquer two bosses in the Double Evil map to secure victory. On top of that, players will embrace new challenges and battle against fresh adversaries in updated maps. And with the revamped Talent system, they will experience a novel gameplay experience and progression.

There are now difficulty options that include Easy, Normal, and Hard modes with adjusted challenge levels, all while exploring rotating maps that evolve weekly. However, don’t sleep on the Exchange Store, where you can trade tokens earned from Zombie Hunt for enticing rewards. Moreover, the addition of Revival Tokens ensures swift recovery for both yourself and teammates, subject to revival limits.

Training Grounds Adjustments

Enhance your shooting skills with a revamped training ground experience designed to align more closely with actual combat scenarios.

The Target Range has been expanded and enriched with additional cover options. Now, you have the flexibility to access the Target Range at your convenience and tailor the training to your needs. Customize target settings such as HP, running speed, spawn amount, distance, armor level, and more. The Shooting mode offers distinct difficulty levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced, each with varying target behavior and respawn rates. Furthermore, weapon display optimization streamlines the experience, highlighting current patch adjustments for better visibility.

Bermuda Map Tweaks

The Bermuda map in BR has received a few adjustments, some of which are present even in the CS versions of these areas.

Prepare to conquer the revitalized Peak area with enhanced loot density and quality. The architectural layout of Peak has been completely overhauled, introducing a fresh estate and an overall lowered height, allowing for intense battles with greater spatial depth. The reimagined Peak offers a renewed sense of vitality, inviting players to explore its exciting challenges. This revamped Peak can be found in both Clash Squad Casual and Ranked matches.


Hangar receives thoughtful adjustments to level the playing field and enhance the overall experience. The layout of the blue container area near the billboard has been refined, eliminating previous advantages gained from certain positions. Adjustments include the removal of curbs and strategic alterations to container placements. Two trees in the middle area have been removed, and improvements to shelters on the second floor contribute to better shooting experiences. The first floor now boasts an extra door, introducing new movement possibilities.

Factory undergoes changes to address height imbalances and visibility issues. The third-floor platform’s height has been reduced to enhance targetability and engagement on different levels. Railings within the Factory have been made thinner to minimize their impact on aim assist. Interior brightness has been adjusted for clearer visibility, alleviating the dimness that affected gameplay.

These Bermuda adjustments offer exciting gameplay enhancements across multiple locations.

Character Additions and Balance Changes

With a brand new character, along with a plethora of balance tweaks, there’s a lot to talk about when it comes to the adjustments done to the different characters in Free Fire:

New Character – Suzy

Meet Suzy, a compassionate bounty assassin with a heart of gold. Suzy’s ability, “Money Mark,” adds bounty value to enemy markings. Allies who eliminate marked enemies earn 100 in-match currency, while Suzy herself earns an extra 100 for each elimination.

Character Reworks

The performance and skills of several characters have been adjusted in the following ways:

  • Antonio’s transformation brings a new dimension to his support role. His skill, “Gangster’s Spirit,” now grants 40 extra Shield Points at the start of the match. These Shield Points regenerate if no damage is taken after 4 seconds.
  • Nairi’s enhanced skill, “Ice Iron,” bolsters Gloo Walls’ resilience. Deployed Gloo Walls now restore 250 durability per second when hit, healing teammates within 5m by 20 HP/s, with a maximum of 40 HP per teammate. This healing effect fades after 10s in the Danger Zone.
  • Shani’s reimagined ability, “Gear Recycle,” introduces Shield Points to herself and nearby allies when using an active skill. These Shield Points decay after 5s, with a cooldown of 10s.
  • Shirou’s updated skill, “Damage Delivered,” focuses on information sharing. When hit by an enemy within 100m, the attacker is marked for 6s, with intel shared among teammates, up to a maximum of 4 markings.

Character Balance and Mechanical Adjustments

Among the balance adjustments in the OB41 update, we can find the following:

  • (NERF) Andrew “The Fierce”: Armor damage reduction boosted by 15%. This reduction scales by 5% with every additional teammate with this skill.
  • (BUFF) SKYLER: “Riptide Rhythm” cooldown reduced from 45 to 40s. The wave duration was extended from 5s to 6s..
  • (BUFF)Moco: “Hacker’s Eye” skill is now capable of tagging multiple targets..
  • Buffs and debuffs will now be displayed in the upper left corner of the health bar.

Additions to the Shield Points Mechanic

Shield Points are a new protection mechanism introduced in the previous patch, adding depth to various characters’ abilities. And in this OB41 update, this mechanic is further extended to include other characters that can bestow it. Shield Points are designed to be deducted first when taking damage, instead of your HP, except when taking damage from the danger zone, from bleeding debuffs, or from falls. Shield Points have their own UI display above the HP bar, distinct from HP.

In the new update, characters with skills that provide Shield Points have been increased to include Kapella, Sonia, Antonio, and Shani.

Limit on Movement Speed Buffs

To combat and address to growing meta of stacking movement speed buffs, which for a long time was the go-to strategy in high-end gameplay due to how it benefits virtually every type of play style universally, the devs have decided to implement a hard cap on the amount of movement speed buffs that players can gain from multiple sources. With the OB41 update, players can obtain no more than a 15% movement speed increase, in total.

While this small but significant tweak will still have players stacking movement speed until they hit the new cap, this will hopefully encourage other types of play styles, metas, team compositions, and strategies.

New Melee ‘Finishing Moves’

Unleash your ultimate style with melee weapon finishing moves! Knock down your opponent and showcase your power by eliminating them with a spectacular move. The way these new finishing moves work is the following:

  1. Equipped with any melee weapon (excluding pans), you can execute a finishing move on a downed enemy within a specific range.
  2. Upon triggering the move, an animation will initiate, resulting in the successful elimination of the downed player once the animation concludes.
  3. You have the option to halt the finishing move at any point by tapping the stop button.
  4. Interrupted finishing moves will fail, but you can recommence the process within the proper range of the downed player.

It’s worth pointing out that Pans do not have a finishing move, which is in line with preserving their unique gameplay element: Being able to physically block enemy shots when held in the player’s hand or when stowed hanging from their gear.

Social and UI Improvements and Additions

This update brings a host of social and UI improvements designed to streamline your interactions and enhance your overall gaming experience. One of the standout additions is the Play Again Button, allowing you to swiftly jump into the next match without navigating back to the lobby. Whether you’re in the heat of spectating, celebrating a Booyah victory, or viewing match results, a simple tap on the Ready/Play Again button lets you seamlessly enter matchmaking for your next adventure. Your matchmaking settings will be preserved from the previous match, making it easy to dive right back into the action.

The Booking Optimization feature brings convenience to team coordination. When a player accepts a booking, they will automatically join the team as soon as their ongoing match concludes. This eliminates the wait time between matches and facilitates smoother teamwork transitions. Moreover, the team lobby displays avatars and ongoing game information of booked players, allowing you to keep track of your teammates’ status.

Teaming up becomes more flexible with the Team Up Optimization improvements. Players already in a team can now receive invites from players in other teams, simplifying the process of joining forces. This is particularly beneficial for solo Squad players who wish to collaborate with friends. Additionally, the team leader’s departure will no longer automatically disband the entire team, ensuring continuity even when the leader steps aside.

Offline Invitations offer a solution for those instances when you’re online, but your friends aren’t. With this feature, you can send invitations to your Dynamic Duo or Mentor even when they’re offline. Upon tapping the invitation notification, invitees can launch the game and seamlessly join the team, fostering coordination regardless of online availability.

Enhancements to Custom Room settings provide more freedom for tailored matches. After creating a Clash Squad room, advanced settings can be adjusted, and specific aspects of room dynamics can be modified to suit your preferences. Moreover, the introduction of Intimacy Scores lets you build closer relationships with friends by accumulating scores as you play together. Sending likes also contributes to your intimacy score, promoting positive interactions among your gaming companions.

The new Likes Outside Matches feature offers a way to express appreciation beyond the bounds of gameplay. By liking profiles and sending likes to friends, you can strengthen your social connections even when not engaged in matches. These social and UI enhancements collectively contribute to a more connected and dynamic Free Fire experience, fostering camaraderie and making coordination smoother than ever. For more details on these updates, be sure to refer to the official patch notes.
