In addition to a new desert map, the dev team of Garena also adds a new Bomb Squad mode to this Free Fire new update version OB20. In this new game mode, two teams will fight against each other. One team takes the role of the attacker while the other plays the part of the defender. The roles of the two teams will be swapped in each round.

When the game starts, the attacker will set an explosive bomb in a given spot and protect it until the explosion. Meanwhile, the defending team will try to prevent the bomb from exploding. The team winning more games after seven rounds will get the ultimate victory. It seems to be pretty similar to the TDM mode in CS: GO where the counter-terrorists fight against terrorists.

New Gun King Mode

Another exciting game mode added to this Free Fire update is Gun King Mode. It's also a match of two squads whose mission is upgrading their weapons. And the winner is the one who reaches the maximum level of the weapon first. The two teams in a Gun King match share the same weapon upgrade route.

And when you upgrade your knife, the first level weapon, to a bat, the maximum level weapon, you win the game. As mentioned in the name of the game mode, the winner is the Gun King.

Other Features In OB20 Free Fire Update Version

A New Shield Gun

This OB20 update brings Free Fire players a new weapon called 'Shield Gun'. This gun literally has a shield on the muzzle to prevent the coming ammo from opponents. It will be very useful when you cannot find any cover. However, this new weapon has a disadvantage: low damage output.

It's understandable because if this new gun has high damage, it will be an undefeatable weapon in this game. And players will be prone to use it instead of finding other guns. Of course, the dev team doesn't hope to see players forget other weapons they launched in Free Fire maps.
