Free Fire got its OB25 update on December 7, 2020, which brought many additions and changes to the game, such as a new gun – Vector Akimbo, Clash Squad Season 4, HUD Changes, and much more. You can check out the complete changelog here. Now we will get to see the upcoming OB26 update in the game, and in this article, we will share everything we know about the FF OB26 update.
Free Fire OB26 Update Release Date:
Free Fire OB26 update is expected to release on February 4, 2021. Currently, developers have not made any official statement, but you can rely on our expert prediction as you must have experienced in the past if you are our regular reader. Just like all the previous OB updates, the OB26 update will also bring many new changes or additions to the game.
Free Fire OB26 Update New Features:
The upcoming OB26 update will remove some old features and bring a lot of new features to Free Fire. As time passes and we reach close to the release date, more and more leaks will start coming from different sources. So we dedicate this post specifically to the leaks available from today itself.
1. New Character – Snowelle
If you could play Free Fire OB25 Advanced Server, you must have played using this female character named ‘Snowelle.’ Nonetheless, the character was not introduced in the game with the OB25 update, so that we can expect her with the OB26 update. She is a Lab researcher who is specialized in nanotechnology and robotics.
Just like every character of the game, Snowelle also comes with a special skill called ‘Nano Nerves.’ Her special skill causes enemies who are shot by her will be unable to use their Active Skill and unable to convert EP into HP.
- Nano Nerves Level 1: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 45s.
- Nano Nerves Level 2: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 42s.
- Nano Nerves Level 3: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 39s.
- Nano Nerves Level 4: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 36s.
- Nano Nerves Level 5: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 33s.
- Nano Nerves Level 6: Within 5s of being hit by Snowelle, enemies are unable to use active skills, unable to convert EP into HP. CD 30s.
2. New Character – Sverr
Sverr is in the upcoming character’s list from OB24 Advanced Server, but we neither get him in the OB24 update nor in the OB25 update. Let’s hope to get him as a playable character in the game with the OB26 update.
Sverr is a top-tier MMA fighter and comes with a Special Skill (Active Skill) called ‘Going Berserk.’ Currently, there are ‘DJ Alok’ and ‘K’ Characters with active skill. Soon we will get a new Chrono Character also with the Active Skill. So with the OB26 update, Sverr is going to be the 4th character in Free Fire with an Active Skill.
Sverr’s Special Ability increases damage dealt to the enemy as his HP gets reduced. At level 1, his special skill consumes 40HP to increase damage by 10% and lasts for 5 seconds. By playing matches, you can level up the character to increase this percentage.
3. New Pet – Dinosaur
With the OB26 update, we might get to see a new Dinosaur pet. On the servers outside India, his name is kept as ‘Dragosito,’ but what would be its name on the Indian Server is not known yet. The looks of the pet are similar to a cute mini Dinosaur.
The special ability of the Dinosaur pet is called ‘Heavy Thief Skill.’ It increases the items’ picking speed and running speed by 10% after making a kill. The effects last for a short period only.
4. Full Bermuda 2.0 Map
We all are expecting the release of Bermuda Remastered / Bermuda 2.o map in Free Fire from the last two OB updates. The official announcement of this new map’s release was made just after the OB24 update, but developers could not implement their words due to some technical problems.
Later, everyone expected it with the OB25 update, but nothing happened as such. So we finally might get to see the new Bermuda 2.0 map with the OB26 update. We have already been introduced to the Bermuda 2.0 map’s four locations in the Clash Squad mode. The locations are: Hydropower, Academy, Fisherman Greek, and Yagami Garden.
But the full Bermuda 2.0 map will come with a lot of changes as compared to the standard Bermuda map. The changes were available in the Advance Server released before the OB24 update. You can have a sneak peek at each and every location here.
Apart from the mentioned changes, two new locations called ‘Tokyo’ and ‘New York’ will also be there on the map. We will get to see Tokyo near the Clock Tower and Factory, whereas New York will be around Riverside.
