Have you ever wondered why Free Fire players seem to want Alok so much, with many giveaways featuring him and people begging for a chance to get the character? Look no further – in this article, we would list out the 3 reasons that this character is so popular.

1 – Alok's ability

There are 30 characters in Free Fire, but not all of them are created equal. While some have useless abilities like “increase fist damage” or “camouflage”, some have super OP abilities that could change the course of the game when used at the right time. And amongst those OP characters, the most powerful is probably Alok. His “Drop the Beat” ability would increase players’ movement speed and heal them for the duration, which is the two best buffs in the game.

2 – Ranked Compatibility

Alok’s ability is super powerful – you pretty much have to get this character to compete in the higher levels of ranked matches. You need real money to acquire him, however – not every player has the chance to buy something in Free Fire. Once they acquired Alok, they might be able to compete on a level playing field.

3 – Popularity of the real life Alok

This might apply more to the South American market than the Indian one. While Alok is one of the most famous DJs in the world, the guy’s fanbase is mainly in that region. Getting your hand on a character based on your favorite musician could be a huge drive behind these fans. Currently, the guy is pretty much a mascot of Free Fire, participating in last years' world tournament.
