The character system has become an integral part of Garena Free Fire. The game currently offers 34 playable characters, each comes with a unique ability. When in the right hands, they can easily decimate every enemy standing in the way. Let's check out the best 5 characters who could aid you in your rank climb!

1. DJ Alok

Kicking off the list, we have the popular DJ Alok. He can create a 5-meter aura that increases the ally movement speed by 10% and restores 5 HP/s for 5 seconds. This active ability, Drop the Beat, fits every playstyle in the game, especially aggressive players. Once you have leveled Alok to level 6, climbing rank will not be that big of a challenge. At the max level, his ability grants a 15% movement speed buff for ally and HP regen for 10 seconds.

2. Hayato

Coming in at the second place, we have the legendary samurai Hayato. His passive ability, Bushido, increase the player's armor penetration by 7.5% with every 10% lost maximum HP. That means the lower your HP bar, the more damage you deal to enemies with armor. At level six, the armor penetration increases to 10% with every 10% lost maximum HP. Hayato is excellent in aggressive plays for rank pushing.

3. Kelly The Swift

Next, we have the awakened version of Kelly, also known as Kelly The Swift. This version of the character offers her a passive ability - Deadly Velocity. It activates after seven seconds of sprinting. When in use, the first shot on any target or in 5 seconds inflicts 110% damage. If you're looking for someone who can drop the enemies in one fell swoop, then Kelly The Swift is the choice to go for in ranks.

4. K (Captain Booyah)

The professor and jiu-jitsu expert K has an active ability - Master of All. It allows him to increase his max EP by 50. When in the Jiu-Jitsu mode, allies within a 6-meter radius get a 500% increase in the EP conversion rate. While in the psychology mode, K recovers 2 EP every three seconds with up to 100 EP. Players can switch between the two modes with a 20-second cooldown. He is the first character in Free Fire who comes with two skills, and has the potential for squad ranked matches.

5. Jota

Last but not least, we have Jota. He owns a passive ability called Sustained Raids. This ability instantly restores 25HP for Jota with every SMG or Shotgun kill at a 5-second cooldown. At the maximum level 6, the HP gain increases to 40 points per kill. So, if you're an SMG or shotgun main, Jota is the choice to go for in ranks.
