Free Fire's character system is one of the most exciting twists ever added to the usual Battle Royale formula. Every player joining the match would be able to equip 4 unique skills - and with the full roster of the game being 29 characters (30 if you count Jai and 32 if you count the awakened form of Kelly and Hayato), there are countless combinations that can be made. Jota is amongst the best characters in the game for this reason.

One of the strongest characters in Free Fire

If you divide characters into 3 tiers, Jota would be a high B - his ability is super strong but somewhat limited, as the guy has to use a bad weapon to get the bonus. In this guide, we would list out everything you need to know about Jota in Free Fire.

1 - Jota's Backstory

Jota is more or less the most "normal" character in Free Fire. He grew up in a middle-class family with parents who loved him while being an average student at school. However, some people just cannot stand the normal life - Jota felt trapped and bored in his daily life and that was what led him to parkour. The city he lived in was filled with skyscrapers - all prime targets for climbing. That's why Jota is regarded as a master parkour.

Jota is based on popular Indonesian Action Star Joe Taslim - the first real-life character to be ported into Free Fire.

2 - Jota's Ability

Jota is one of the strongest characters created in Free Fire to date, with an ability named "Sustained Raids" that restores health after every kill. While this is only moderately useful in BR modes, in which you would often use an AR, its performance in arcade modes is absurd. You would be able to engage multiple enemies activating this skill - as unlike other kinds of heal, this one is instant.

3 - Tips and tricks on using Jota

Overall, you can use Jota on a fun Shotgun build with Caroline or an SMG build with Nikita. With his ability being close quarter combat based - you might want to slap on Luqueta, Wolfrahh, or Alok's ability as well. Kapella's passive can boost his healing ability by 10%, giving your character 44 HP after every kill. When using a build based on Jota's skill, it is best that you stick in areas with multiple covers to avoid getting sniped.
