Free Fire's character system is probably the most unique and well-liked feature in the game. Currently, there are 33 characters in Free Fire, each with their own unique ability... and Wukong is probably the most special amongst them.

In this article, we would list out everything you need to know about the Wukong character in Free Fire.

1 - Overview of Wukong

Wukong was released into the game in January 2019 as part of the Impulsive Shock Elite Pass. Currently, you can buy the character in the shop for 499 diamonds or 25000 gold. The character is based on the famous Chinese novel "Journey to the West" in which a Chinese Monk and his three apprentices (including Wukong) journey to India.

2 - Wukong's Backstory

In Free Fire, Wukong is actually not a mystical being - he is an actual monkey kidnapped by the FF organization and experimented on. When he was imprisoned in the lab, the scientists have planted an AI into his brain, giving Wukong human-like intelligence.

Escape from inescapable situations

When attacked, you can just turn into a bush and move to the nearest cover to get away - enemies would not be able to damage you or target you whatsoever. If there are no covers available, create one using Gloo Wall Grenade.
