Getting a good character roster is very important in Free Fire MAX, especially if you are a new player. A good active skill gives players a much easier time in combat. Check this post to find out more about the top 5 best characters for new players to purchase.

1. Alok

Alok has been the most popular character in Free Fire ever since his release. The reason behind his popularity is that his skill is strong and easy to use.

Drop the Beat provides players with extra speed and HP regen, the two needed buffs for rushing. Most new players focus on rushing to get used to the game, therefore, having Alok's aura would be best. Furthermore, the skill also has a long duration and short cooldown - even if you activate it at the wrong time, it would not be a problem.

2. Hayato

Hayato's passive of increasing Armor Penetration is a universal skill that works on pretty much any combos. Thiva's ability is not an exception. If you don't know which ability to equip your character, it is best to just go with Hayato's passive.

Upgrading to the Awakened version is not a good idea, as Hayato Firebrand's active skill is not really that strong.

3. Maro

If you are not a fan of going close and personal, Maro's passive is probably one of the easiest and most straightforward to use. Unlike other skills with cooldown and conditions, the only thing Falcon Fervor does is increase damage based on the distance between players and the target.

With Maro's ability equipped, players' performance on long range weapons would be moderately improved.

4. Dimitri

This is one of the most unique skills ever added to Free Fire. It creates a healing aura similar to Alok but slightly weaker. All players inside the area can self recover to get up if they are knocked down.

Dimitri's ability is pretty straightforward.

Overall, this is one of the best support abilities that can form an effective Dimitri combo with many Free Fire characters. You can just active your skill, run near teammates for them to self-revive while engaging in combat at the same time. This is the most unique healing skill in Free Fire.

5. Dasha

Almost all long-range sniping weapons have the weakness of high recoil. This makes controlling them much more difficult, as you have to fix your aim every few shots. Dasha's skill is pretty effective in dealing with that problem - it reduces both recoil and recoil buildup.

Dasha's recoil reduction can be super useful with the right weapons.

The extra component of reducing fall damage also works pretty well in Sniper builds. You can just jump straight down from your vantage point without having to worry about taking damage. This is great amongst passive skills for snipers.
