Free Fire OB28 Update Release Date
The Free Fire’s Upcoming OB28 Update, aka June 2021 update, is expected to release on June 8, 2021. As of now, there is no announcement made by developers officially. But if you are our (Free Fire Booyah!) regular reader, you must know that there is no harm in relying on our expert prediction.
Free Fire OB28 Update New Features:
1. New Character: D-BEE
D-BEE is the new character to be released after the OB28 update. He is a music maker and streetdancer. The looks of the new character are quite cool. He wears a Pink Headphone and Blue Bandana. The character also wears a Yellow Jacket.
There is a possibility that part D in the name ‘D-Bee’ stands for ‘Dancer.’ Similar to other characters, he also comes with a special ability. His special skill is named ‘Bullet Beats.’ It is a Passive skill.
Bullet Beats Ability Details:
D-BEE’s ‘Bullet Beats’ ability increases movement speed and accuracy if firing while moving. Its effects on the different levels is as follows:
- Level 1: When firing while moving, movement speed increases by 35%, accuracy increases by 35%.

2. New Pet – Dr. Beanie
Like all the previous OB updates, with the OB28 update, a new pet will also be introduced in the game. The name of the pet is ‘Dr. Beanie’ and it looks like a mini duckling with a big head. It comes with a special ability called ‘Dashy Duckwalk‘.
The Dashy Duckwalk special ability increases the movement speed of the character while in the crouch position. It basically increases the movement speed if the character is walking like a duck. The pet will be a perfect option for the players who love to use LMG machine guns such as KORD.
Dr. Beanie Pet’s Special Ability – Dashy Duckwalk
The Dashy Duckwalk special ability increases the movement speed of the character while in the crouch position.
- Level 1: When in crouch position, movement speed increases by 30%.
- Level 2: When in crouch position, movement speed increases by 40%.
- Level 3: When in crouch position, movement speed increases by 60%.
3. New Pistol Gun – UZI
Introduction of UZI is being planned in Free Fire from a very long time, but due to some unavoidable circumstances, developers brought Thompson instead of UZI. This time with the OB28 update, we are getting UZI for sure. There are possibilities that we might get to use this weapon in Akimbo mode (one gun in each hand) also.
UZI is a family of Israeli open-bolt, blowback-operated Submachine guns. It was one of the first weapons to use a telescopic bolt design, which allows the magazine to be housed in the pistol grip for a shorter weapon.
As you must know, Pistols are usually effective in close ranges only, so UZI will also be a gun suitable for close-range combats. But one thing to note, it will be the fastest Pistol of the game, i.e., fastest firing speed. It also comes with a perfect headshot damage to eliminate enemy within seconds.
4. New Mode – Pet Rumble Mode
A new mode inspired from ‘Among Us’ mobile game will be introduced in Free Fire. This mode is named ‘Pet Rumble’. In this mode there is a team of scientists, among them there are Prankster(s). The scientists complete the tasks assigned and also try to catch the Prankster(s). Prankster has kill the scientists without getting caught, before they complete their tasks.
The mode will also have its own map with 8 locations on it. The unique thing about the mode is, in this mode you do not play using the in-game characters, instead you play using the pets. You can check out the details information about the Pet Rumble Mode here.
5. Vending Machine Changes
After the update, Vending Machine on the map will also provide with the ammo of the guns. You will be able to get Assault Rifle Ammo, Sniper Ammo, Shotgun Ammo, and Sub-Machine Gun ammo. The cost of the them is as follows:
- 60 AR Ammo – 1 Token
- 15 Sniper Ammo – 1 Token
- 20 SG Ammo – 1 Token
- 80 SMG Ammo – 1 Token
6. New Lobby
The FFWS lobby remain the same with a bit of changes. Have a look at it below.
7. New Ice Grenade
A new grenade is coming to the after the OB28 update. It will be named ‘Ice Grenade’. The Ice Grenade causes a bit of damage to the opponents, in addition to slow down the movement speed and rate of fire.
Unlike Gloo Wall, which provides players with temporary physicals barrier, the new Ice Grenade explodes like normal Grenades, but causes less damage, since the main effect is slowing down the opponents.
8. Training Island – Mini Car Racing Game
The Training Island’s old race track will have a mini car racing game after the OB28 update. Here players have to go through each checkpoint and set the best lap. The idea is similar to Formula 1 race track, and is expected to be released because of the recent Free Fire x McLaren collaboration.
