In Free Fire, the power of a weapon does not only depend on its damage but other stats as well, especially the rate of fire. The higher the rate of fire of a weapon is, the more bullets it can shot in the same duration of time. That means even if a weapon has low damage, it can still have a lot of power with a high rate of fire.

2. Thomson

The Thomson is widely considered by many players as the strongest SMG in Free Fire. The weapon has high damage of 50, a high rate of fire of 77, and an overall high stat. The biggest weakness of this weapon is that it is a new weapon in Free Fire so there aren't many skins for it yet to boost its power.
