Predicting the next safe zone is of utmost importance in battle royale games like Free Fire.

As the safe zone is shrinking, players who stay outside will take damage, so it is essential for players to try to stay inside the safe zone and guess where the next one might be. In this article, we will show you some tips to be able to always stay inside the safe zone and a way to predict the next safe zone 100% correct.

The safe zone in Free Fire is marked by a white circle on the map. After a certain duration in the game, a new white circle with a smaller size will appear randomly inside the previous one to indicate the next safe zone.
