You should change your game plan according to the level and game you are playing. There is three types of game plan which you can employ when you play Garena Free Fire.
If you are playing normal Squad game and need to complete a daily task or veteran task or Elite Pass task, then you can choose this mode. In this, you will be in killing spree with your teammate or alone, as fear of dying is not applicable as this did not affect your ranking. You will live by the day to get maximum kills and will clear all the task ahead of the day.
Fire and Hide
This type of tactics is used when you are playing for the rank game and with your teammates or duo. You can use this tactic when you are alone also in the rank game. All you need to do is not to expose your self for the incoming damages from an enemy bullet. You will fire and then hide behind your shelter or tree, creating confusion for the enemy and they will try to come out to check from where they get the hit. At that time, you will pounce upon them with heavy firing.
Evading and surviving
One of the timidest ways of pushing rank is to evade anyone to one battle with anyone till the end to push rank. All you have to do is to hide in any room or obstacle till the end to fight with the last one or the last bunch. This method is used by many players who want to push their rank from bottom to heroic.
Pro tips: there is no shame for choosing to evade and surviving when you want to push your rank. Choose any of the three different styles of the game according to the game you are playing.
4. Get your Weapon & Armor first
What you do when you land on the ground after jumping from the airplane in the free-fire?
The first thing when you land is to run and pick up guns, no bags, no armor, no med-kits. It is the only weapon what you need to pick, bags, armor or med-kits can be pick later, but first, you need to concentrate on the survival of the first few minutes. If you have landed in a very crowded place like peak or mills, then you need to pick weapon first to save yourself.
Getting guns should be your priority then you can go for Armor or bags or med-kits. Do not greedy take all different type of ammo, check your bag occasionally for the useless items such as ammo of different weapon which you don’t possess — more than one attachment of weapon, more than one scope, more than 10 med-kits.
Pro tips: chose guns over any other game items in the first few minutes when the game starts.
5. Know the Safe Zone
You should keep an eye on the mini-maps for shrinking of the safe zone. The safe zone is round shape zone which you need to move as the game progress. You can check a safe zone in the mini-map which will be a map as a white color round object. Now all the newbies don’t know the safe zone, and they lose their life wandering in the unsafe zone.
The safe zone is essential for the Battle Royale style game as if this system is not implemented; all players will hide in pockets in the game and game will never end. So to make sure all the players meet each other, safe zone keep on decreasing and keep on shrinking till it becomes zero. All the players who are playing free fire need to keep themselves in a safe zone to avoid any casualty.
Pro tips: check the time left for the safe zone to shrink and then dash for the safe zone.
6. Vehicle Vs. Trees
So, which one you prefer Vehicle or Tree?
Well, both have pros and cons, and they serve a different purpose in the game. The vehicle is great killers when you wheel out from behind and knock down players. But these are mostly used when you are playing in lower levels when you advance to higher levels with most of them are heroic players, you will not get a single kill instead you will get killed instantly by all high level’s players.
Vehicles make a louder noise and will be shown in the mini-maps as yellow curve lines when using against higher level players they use glue wall to stop the car and kill the driver. Even teams set traps to knock down the car and kill the drivers. So, if you are playing at higher levels like the rank game then avoid cars and keep your self-hiding behind the tree.
Pro tips: Vehicle vs. Tree, tree wins
7. Glueball real life saver
If you really want to become a pro player than try to use glue wall in the war. Glue ball is the real-life saver when you come under the heavy firing from the enemy, and you don’t have any nearby shelter or tree or hiding place. You can turn game outcome if you use glue wall to stop all incoming firing.

8. Choose airdrop carefully
AirDrop is great for getting rare game items with shields and other attachments. But you need to choose airdrop carefully, as this airdrop emits lights which can be seen by a greater distance. When airdrop falls from the sky, do not rush to them to get the loot.
Wait for some time and monitor if that portion is infested with enemy team or enemy. You need to take covers or shelter before you can monitor any enemy movement. Keep your glue wall handy when you rush to near the AirDrop.
Make sure to loot fast all the weapons and game items and run away from airdrop, so that you can hide and wait for other players, who will come to loot the air drops.
Pro tips: do not rush to loot airdrop, instead wait and check if any enemy team is nearby and take cover while watching.
9. Correct Weapon Combination
One of deciding factor to win in any Garena free fire battle is the use of a correct weapon. If you are not using the current weapon in the current range, you will defiantly be going to lose the battle or get killed.
Always remember, when you are fighting one to one in close range then SMG and shotguns are the best weapons. When you are fighting for mid-range and long-range then you should depend on Assault Rifles, do not use SMG in mid-range or long range because it will not do any harm to the enemy.
Sniper Rifle is used for long distance range and that too when the enemy is static. Do not use Sniper Rifle when the enemy is in motion or running while jumping. You will never get a hit with Sniper Rifle. Instead, use Assault Rifles when the enemy is running away or jumping while running.

13. Remember the thumb rule
Remember the thumb rule, “higher position always wins.” If you ever server army, then you must know one thumb rule, a higher position always wins. This rule is true for Battle Royale Free Fire game. If you are holding on a higher position, there are chances that you will win 90% of all matches; the rest 10% depends on the enemy shooting accuracy.

In a Squad match, you need to be protective and give covering fire when your teammate is surrounded by the enemy. You need to help each other with med-kit and make a wall against all team members who got hit by a bullet and are on knees. Remember, you got very little time to save your teammates when you get hit by bullets. So, make sure in a free fire that you did not ward away from your teammates as it will be difficult to get or give help in time.
