Everything About Free Fire Ranks And Ranked Play
One of the most popular mobile Battle Royale games in the world is Free Fire, and with such a gigantic player base, a free fire ranking system is bound to exist. Players play these competitive game modes every day in order to get a chance to climb the Free Fire ranks to participate in Free Fire tournaments.
What ranked modes are available in Free Fire?
Like PUBG mobile, Free Fire also has a lot of different modes that players can queue up in and have some fun. However, if you want to play competitively, only certain modes are available for ranked play. The mode currently available for competitive play are:
- Battle Royale Ranked Mode
- Clash Squad Ranked
Battle Royale Ranked
This is the basic game mode of Free Fire, and everyone who plays the game is familiar with it. Players can queue solo, duo, or with squads and defeat other players in one of the three maps (Bermuda, Alpine, and Purgatory).
Of course, like in any Battle Royale, the goal is to be the last player standing. While participating in the ranked version of Battle Royale, players will gain or lose Ranked Points, which we will talk about later in more detail.
Clash Squad Ranked
Unlike Battle Royale, which can have teams of differently queued players until there are 50 players in the match, Clash Squad is always a 4v4 game mode. You can queue up by yourself or with some friends. Even if you are not a full premade team, you will be awarded extra players until you have four members on your squad (If you queue with two, you will be given two players; if you queue with thre, you will be given a player to fill your roster once the match is found).
In this game mode, the goal is to win four out of seven rounds by eliminating other players. At the start of each round, players can stay only within their starting area and purchase weapons and items in the shop. The Balance is given out each round based on what players did in the previous round (with the exception of the first round, where everyone gets the same amount).
If a player dies, they lose their weapons and items, and if they survive a round, they keep all the items, so staying alive is essential. The following maps are played in the ranked mode: Bermuda, Bermuda Remastered, Kalahari, Purgatory.
Unlike the Battle Royale ranked mode, which uses Ranked Points, Clash Squad Ranked uses a star system, which we will cover in the next section.
What are the ranks in Free Fire?
There are seven different divisions in the Free Fire ranking system, and each has a different number of sub-ranks:
- Bronze (I, II, and III)
- Silver (I, II, and III)
- Gold (I, II, III, and IV)
- Platinum (I, II, III, and IV)
- Diamond (I, II, III, and IV)
- Grand Master (top 300 in the Region regardless of rank).
In Battle Royale, players will stake their RP (Ranked Points) to advance through the ranks. By entering a match on each ranked, you will have to pay an entrance fee of some RP, depending on your rank. Once you enter the match, you will start with negative RP (based on your entrance fee), and you will gain RP by staying alive in the match and gaining kills (doing both will award you more RP).
In Clash Squad Ranked, the ranking system uses stars instead. Each tier will require a certain number of stars to advance to the next one. Winning games awards one star, and losing one takes a star away. If a player manages to win three or more matches in a row, they are awarded two stars instead.
