Free Fire's OB27 patch is going to come out today, and in this patch, a lot of characters are going to be changed. Most people would focus on how Chrono is nerfed to oblivion or Rafael's brand new ability... while forgetting about other unpopular characters like Maxim and Olivia.

Free Fire Ob27 patch notes
Ob27, one of the biggest patches to date, is coming out today.

Nevertheless, Maxim and Olivia's buffs are still fairly substantial. In this article, would list out everything you need to know about the changes to these two characters in OB27.

1 - Maxim's ability buff

Gluttony: Eating mushroom and using Medkits faster by 2/4/6/8/10/12% -> 15/18/22/27/33/40%

Before OB27, Maxim has consistently been part of the "worst characters in Free Fire" list, and for a good reason. His ability shaves off 0.5 seconds when consuming a MedKit... at maximum level. While the bonus itself is positive, it usually just does not matter at all. Resources spent on Maxim's ability are more or less wasted.

Maxim Free Fire
Maxim's ability can actually be useful in ranked.

The new version of the skill exceeds the old bonus at level 1. Looks like Garena has finally realized that a 2% reduction of 7 seconds is completely worthless. The new Gluttony would reduce the time needed for eating mushrooms and using medkits by 40%, which cuts down medkit activation time to 4 seconds.

Maxim's ability is definitely a strong and competitive ability now. At max level, you can just pop it in the middle of battle then come back immediately.

2 - Olivia's ability buff

Healing Touch: Downed players will be revived with an extra 6/12/18/24/30/40 -> 30/36/43/51/60/70 HP

Before OB27, Olivia is also considered one of the weakest characters in the game. Kapella can do everything she could do, and more. After OB27, thing changes - healing touch's extra bonus HP is nearly doubled, which exceeds what Kapella could do.

Olivia Free Fire
Olivia is finally worth using.

The best part of this buff is that it increases the effectiveness of the early levels of the skill. It is still fairly useful even if you don't level Olivia up. She is now completely worth picking if you are playing Duo or Squad.
