One of the newly added content coming from Free Fire's OB29 Update is a new game mode called Lone Wolf. According to Zee Business, the Lone Wolf will pit two players in best of nine one-on-one battle inside the new map, the Iron Cage.
In the Lone Wolf, there will be no limitations regarding what weapons the players would have in their loadout. They key here is they need to be swift in this Free Fire version of "hide-and-seek."
Players can stab each other with knives, initiate a fist fight, snipe themselves, or have an SMG fight. The choice is for them to decide which is efficient in grabbing those nine points to win.
Aside from the new game mode, a new weapon will be added in the game's roster in the form of the AC80, a sniper rifle. According to a leak that was posted in Instagram by a Free Fire leaker, the said sniper rifle can easily take down enemies that are wearing heavy armor.
Another new weapon that will be added is the decoy grenade, which it could able to generate noise to distract an enemy while the area where the grenade is deployed will be revealed on the mini map.
Along with the new weapons, according to Sportskeeda, players may also upgrade their M4A1 assault rifle into its X, Y, or Z variants. In order to do the said upgrade, they must have the M4 chip that they get through the vending machine.
New Weapon attachments will be available in the game, including an assault rifle magazine upgrade, a shotgun muzzle upgrade, and a sub-machine gun muzzle upgrade.
A Request option will also be introduced in Free Fire's Clash Squad mode, which allows players to ask for a specific item, whether a weapon or armor, from teammates. With this feature, players can obtain these items directly from allies, especially when they don't have the resources to buy one for their own.
Aside from these additions, several aspects of the game will be subjected for balance changes. The M1887 shotgun will be nerfed down, while the XM8 rifle and the Uzi sub-machine gun will be buffed up.
Aside from that, one of the game's characters, Jota, will have his abilities balanced during the OB29 update.
