Garena Free Fire MAX is here and follows the same controls as the standard version of the game. So, for existing players, it is basically no problem at all. However, for players who are new to the game’s mechanics, there are a couple of things that you may need to understand to get better at the game.

Be it Garena Free Fire MAX, BGMI or Call of Duty Mobile, these multiplayer games rely on headshots a lot. You will need to get headshots to kill an enemy quicker. For long time gamers, this is a thing that comes naturally. However, for newbies, it may be frustrating to land those headshots in the beginning.

In Garena Free Fire and Free Fire MAX, landing headshots is of crucial importance. It makes you win most fights with ease. Besides, increasing your headshot percentage will instantly make you a better player. So, here are the best ways to increase your headshot percentage in Free Fire MAX.

Garena Free Fire MAX: Tips to Increase Headshot Percentage

Customising the Sensitivity Settings

Free Fire MAX Sensitivity Settings

One of the first mistakes that several people make in such mobile games is to follow the sensitivity settings of the game’s popular content creators. You will need to understand that everyone has a different preference and comfort zone. What works for others may not work for you most of the time.

Just head into a game and slightly adjust the sensitivity settings to find YOUR sensitivity, that is, the perfect sensitivity that suits your playing style and reaction time.

Shoot Stable Enemy Players

If your enemy is running and jumping around, it will be very difficult for you to land all your shots. Therefore, it is requested for you to engage only when your enemies are not in a state of constant motion. This will make you miss shots and the enemy player will run away as he or she will come to know of your presence.

Good Crosshair Positioning Sense

One of the best things that will instantly improve your Free Fire MAX gameplay is to be aware of the centre of your display. Now, in mobile shooters, the centre of the screen is always where the crosshair is placed. Being aware of this and placing your crosshair accurately can instantly make a huge difference in your game.

If you drag your crosshair too much instead of immediately placing it on the enemy, you will lose more gunfights. This is because dragging the crosshair consumes a lot of time and will make you miss a critical window of bagging the win.

HUD Layout

Remember, there is NO good HUD layout. There can’t possibly be. Again, just like your sensitivity settings, your HUD layout is something you need to be comfortable with. If you use HUDs that work for others, chances are they will not work for you. Also, it is important that you do not instantly shift to a four-finger or a five-finger layout.

The most important thing is you start slow and gradually move up in your Free Fire MAX HUD layout as your skills increase. It is always easier to start with a three-finger HUD and transition to a four-finger layout later on than instantly jump into a four-finger HUD. Moreover, place the HUD icons as per your convenience and game style. You do not need to follow someone else’s HUD settings. Experiment and change accordingly.

Training Room is the Key

There is a reason why competitive games like Free Fire MAX have training rooms. From Call of Duty Warzone to CoD Mobile, PUBG and more, training rooms are added everywhere. Training rooms allow players to practice and practice thus, honing their skills. The training room allows you to practice your recoil control, aim accuracy and more.

Further, once you practice a lot in the training room and training mode, your aim automatically gets constantly better. Then, when you hop into the real thing, you will see a significant change in your overall gameplay. Training rooms are critical in honing your skills and making complete utilisation of them is the key to becoming a good player.

Although if you have kept up with the news, you already know that Garena Free Fire is facing a ban in India. The reason behind it is the same as how it happened for PUBG back in 2020. But the game isn’t the only one facing the new ban, it is among the other 50 apps facing the ban. However, Garena Free Fire is the biggest shock to many.
