However, apart from these popular characters, there are also a lot of other characters in Free Fire that are also powerful but not getting used much. In this article, we are going to make a list of the top 5 most underrated characters in Free Fire.

Top 5 Most Underrated Characters In Free Fire

1. Alvaro

Alvaro's ability is called Art of Demolition. This ability increases the damage and range of explosive weapons. This includes grenades and grenade launchers. Since most players in Free Fire mostly use guns to kill, they think that Alvaro is not useful at all.

Alvaro is a very underestimated character in Free Fire.

However, explosive weapons in Free Fire are very powerful weapons if know how to use them. Wukong is one of the most popular characters and explosive weapons are the perfect counter to Wukong. This character can only walk while in bush form so it is really easy to hit him with an explosive weapon. Meanwhile, a normal weapon will have a harder time hitting him.

Grenade Free Fire
Explosive weapons can destroy campers in Free Fire easily.

Grenades and grenade launchers are the best way for you to destroy players who are camping inside houses. They are forced to leave their cover or get blown up. You don't even need to be in their line of sight to throw a grenade so they can't shoot you.

2. Kelly The Swift

Kelly has one of the best passive in the game, but many people often don't use her because her skill doesn't increase damage output. With Awaken form, Kelly can give you 6% movement speed and a 110% damage bonus for 1 shot after running for 4 seconds.

Kelly Awaken
Awaken abilities is merged with the original ability in the latest update.

The movement speed buff of Kelly is actually really good. She gives you more mobility all the time, which no other skills can do. While it doesn't sound very significant, you will surprise once you start using her.
