Currently, Free Fire is the most popular Battle Royale in the Indian market, with the biggest player base and a bustling competitive scene. Ranked mode is probably the biggest part of Free Fire, it is where you can find the best players in the game... and you would need every advantage you could get to be the victor.

Chrono, one of the newest characters in the game, is actually essential in Ranked mode... and in this article, we would list out the top 5 reasons you should use him.

1 - Instant Emergency Cover

Chrono's skill "Time Turner" would create a force field that blocks 600 damage from enemies, with a 9 seconds duration. This is more than enough time for you to either shoot back or pop a medkit to heal yourself without having to worry about enemy fire.

Just make sure that you are not focused on by too many people - the shield can be overwhelmed by 2 or 3 players and a grenade can still damage you if it was thrown inside the shield.

2 - Save teammates

Helping teammates is a big part of Free Fire ranked mode, as the more people you have in your team, the higher the chance you would be able to get the Booyah. If your teammate is down, immediately throw a shield on top of him to cover his revival.


Enemies have already spent their ammo on bringing your teammate down and would not be able to get the shield down fast enough.

3 - Aggressive rush

Players can place the shield at close range and rush at enemies - they would be able to shoot through the bubble while enemies' damage would be mitigated. In close range, victory and defeat can be decided in just a split second, and the shield can give you that much.

4 - Bait and misdirection

The shield can be used as bait to get your enemies' attention while you go the other way around to deal with the problem. Chrono's ability is probably one of the flashiest in Free Fire and most people would be drawn to it for just a split second.

5 - Counter enemy shields

Enemies suddenly putting up their Time Turner shield is a problem... that you can counter by putting up yours just a moment later. Their shield would expire first and you would have a second or two to shoot.
