The Free Fire OB23 Update

Garena’s very own Free Fire has been keeping its playerbase engaged with update after update of intriguing content, balances, and bug fixes. The latest advanced server, OB23, hasn’t opened yet, but there are already data miner leaks absolutely swarming the internet. Let’s take a quick look at all the upcoming Free Fire OB23 Update changes.

New Weapon

First up, we’re getting a new Assault Rifle to the arsenal. The Austrian AUG (or also known as a Bullpup) is the latest addition to Free Fire. No other information such as damage and fire rate is public as of yet. But of course, like any other game, the latest additions will have to have impressive viable stats to shift the meta of the game. Reports are that it comes with impressive range alongside a good fire rate. If you’ve ever played Counter-Strike, you can probably make an educated guess based off of the same weapon.

New Character

A new character joins the fray. The portuguese text shown in the promotional image, “novo personagem” translates to “new character”. In case you were wondering, the upper text translates to “advanced server”.

Anyways, the new character Lucas is holding a soccer ball (or football) in his hands. Conversely, he has an ability called “hat-trick” that allows his health bar to extend beyond 200 HP after he kills someone. The extension remains even after losing the additional health.

New Pet

A new major, A new pet. Garena holds true to this statement with the latest pet addition; a penguin. At the present time, there are no confirmed details as of yet. Translating “Dom Pisante” yields nothing decipherable, though leaks suggest that its ability will have something to do with igloos. In conclusion, it’s best we wait for official word from the developers. Why not check out our previous coverage

Map Changes

The leaks allege that the fan-favorite map “Bermuda” will be getting a revamp with the coming update. Therefore it is expected that new locations and architectural landmarks are to be integrated into the map. 

Event

“Grim Reaper” will replace Free Fire’s current event. It is expected to be playable soon after OB23 goes live. Given the popularity of Free Fire’s current event, “Rampage 2.0”, it’s expected that Garena will follow up the success with “Grim Reaper” by continuing to provide free premium goodies to players that take part in the events. 

And that’s all for the Free Fire OB23 Update changes! The OB23 update is not live as of yet according to the game’s official website, however you can no longer register to be a test member for the server.
