Garena Free Fire has established itself as one of the most successful Battle Royale games on the mobile platform. It offers tons of unique features, such as the character system, for players to choose from.

Just a few days ago, Free Fire launched its brand new OB26 update. The center of attention in this update is definitely Skyler! He's the latest addition to Free Fire's character system.

Today, GuruGamer will take you to dive deep into Skyler's potential to see what he's capable of. And hopefully, by the end of this article, you can decide for yourself whether you want to have this character out of the 37 available options.

Let's jump right into it!

Skyler's Special Ability

Being a CEO and a superstar at the same time, you can expect Skyler to "pack quite a punch". He owns an active ability - Riptide Rhythm. At level 1, this ability unleashes a sonic wave that damages five Gloo Walls within 50 meters.

On top of that, every Gloo Wall placed will recover HP, starting at 4 points at the first level. Skyler's ability has a 60-second cooldown.

Should You Buy Skyler in Garena Free Fire?

Skyler is a true powerhouse in Free Fire, that goes without saying. However, we do not think that everyone can tap into his real potential. Skyler's kit really fits the aggressive playstyle. Hence, he will be a perfect choice for players with the following characteristics.


Skyler's ability allows him to be very aggressive in either Classic or Clash Squad Mode. Players can easily rush into enemy fortresses or attack them directly upfront. If you come across any Gloo Wall, shatter them with Riptide Rhythm to destroy their coverage.

Play A Lot of Clash Squad Mode

Skyler is currently one of the best choices for Clash Squad Mode. He will be extra-powerful in later stages of the game, or in close-range combats where covers are rare. Skyler can destroy enemies' Gloo Walls to pick them out off-guard. Also, the character can also deploy Gloo Walls himself to get some HP back.


Skyler is also a great character for rushing. His ability allows you to knock down Gloo Walls enemies deploy in one fell swoop. This grants a massive advantage to Skyler and his teammates in terms of protection, HP, and paves the way to victory.

Play with Friends to Activate Character Combos

If you play Free Fire a lot with friends, then Skyler is so much more fun. You can use the chemistry and synergy between you and your teammates to activate very powerful skill combos.

For example, let's take a look at a team with Antonio, Skyler, Shirou, and Kelly. Here's how it works. Antonio's ability increases HP every round, Shirou's tags enemies and increases armor penetration, then Kelly comes in to boost everyone's movement speed. You and your team will be hitting the enemies like a truck!
