While the Battle Royale craze has cooled down a lot in 2022, it is still a great genre to get into. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 5 best f2p battle royale games on PC (2022).

1. Apex Legends

Apex Legends is one of the later games in the battle royale genre, which has more or less saturated these days. Due to its various innovations, the game has been staying on top and growing even throughout 2022. In Apex, players form into two- or three-player squads of special characters with unique abilities and go against other groups on a large battle royale map.

The special part about Apex Legends is that it manages to keep the focus on gunplay while having special character abilities. Most of these abilities are utilities, which encourage creative gameplay instead of just "press a button to deal damage". A mobile version of the game is still in the work.


PUBG: Battlegrounds is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Studios. It used to be a premium game but has become free recently. PUBG still uses the classic BR formula, with 100 players dropping on a map and fighting until only one survives.

In comparison with the other games on this list, PUBG is probably the most realistic and grounded title. The weapons and gadgets in the game are modern and not futuristic, with the exception of the force field that shrinks over time.

3. Call Of Duty: Warzone

Warzone is the newest name in the battle royale scene - it is a free-to-play mode of Call of Duty Modern Warfare that anyone can download. The thing that makes Warzone different is its player count.

Its BR mode has 150 players on one massive Verdansk instead of the usual 100, a 1vs1 "Gulag" mode after a player gets killed... along with various quests that you can complete while moving around the map. Furthermore, Warzone also has a huge weapon arsenal - one of the biggest on this list, with Call of Duty Modern Warfare being the base game.

4. Fortnite

Epic Game's free-to-play battle royale has the biggest twist in gameplay - besides fighting each other to the death, players also gather resources in the environment to build structures, which can be used for various purposes like protecting fallen allies, getting the high ground... etc. Fortnite also has fairly low graphics requirements and crossplay between Mobile and PC, something no other battle royales have.


Riding on PUBG's coattail and eventually surpassing it, Fortnite has been staying on top of the genre ever since. However, you might not like the cartoony graphical style. Fortnite is the farthest away from "realistic".

5. Spellbreak

Spellbreak is a multiplayer, multi-platform battle royale where players take on the role of a “battlemage” mastering elemental magic and using spells to compete against other players.

Players can choose between six different classes, Frostborn, Conduit, Pyromancer, Toxicologist, Stoneshaper, or Tempest. Each has a different playstyle that can be made even more unique with player customization – including creating different spell combinations.
