There are videogames for all tastes, but there is no doubt that those that are played from the cell phone have become much better. For example, titles like Fortnite or PUBG have millions of followers in all corners of the planet and raise huge profits for their creators.
Both deliveries are very popular in large part because they are Battle Royale type. This genre has gained an enormous amount of followers, since it allows to play simultaneously with other users a real battle to survive, in which the last one to stand is the winner. However, both PUBG and Fortnite have the great disadvantage of being very heavy and demanding applications of several cellular resources, so they can not be installed in the most basic equipment.
However, there is a more “economic” alternative (in terms of resources) that will allow you to experience survival battles in real time without having to have a large cell phone. It’s about Free Fire Battlegrounds.

— What is Free Fire about? —
You are on a remote island where you will have to face 50 other players. The last to stand will be the winner. To achieve your goal you will have to get weapons and stay within the safe zone (this is shown on the map of the game), which is gradually reduced. If you stay out of this area, you will die.
Everything is worth to be the last survivor. You can avoid the conflict or, on the contrary, look for it. The best thing is to have a dose of both qualities: neither very aggressive -because you risk being killed faster- nor very careful- because you have to move constantly so as not to be out of the safe area-. Of course, as you face adversaries you will run out of ammunition and you will lose life. Therefore, you will have to explore the area in search of more equipment and medicine (to recover life).
— Play as a team —
It is always more fun to play with friends than alone. Much more in a Battle Royale, since team play and coordination are basic for survival. In Free Fire you can make teams of two and four people, to face the rest.
You can add friends by looking for their nickname or player id and also from Facebook or Line. Also, if you do not have anyone to play with, you can still join a team. In that case, your group will be randomly formed among the users that are currently connected.
— Strategy for beginners —
At the beginning, every game of this kind can seem a bit complicated. That is why we have prepared a list with some tips that will help you to know what to do as soon as you start. Little by little, you will find your own strategy.
1. Test your connection. In Free Fire there is no pause worth. The game continues with you or without you, so make sure that nobody bothers you, but above all make sure you have access to a stable internet signal, do not go hanging in the middle.
2. Hit the landing site. At the beginning of the game you will jump to the island in a parachute from an airplane. You choose where to fall. If you’re just starting, maybe the best thing is going to stop in more desolate areas, where there are some houses to get weapons, but far from downtown, where are the busiest places.
3. Memorize the map. If you want to become a Ducho in Free Fire you must know the map perfectly. Try to know in which houses there are usually rewards, which places are more or less dangerous and trace a route to the center as safely as possible. While the rest of the players fall randomly on the map and kill each other, you are forming your network of equipment in a quiet way until the final showdown, being more lucid and very well armed.
4. Equip yourself with everything you can. The main thing to survive are weapons, so as soon as you step on the ground, look for what to defend yourself with. Then, try to take a backpack to store more objects. Another important point is to know the different weapons of the game. Depending on your strategy, you may prefer long-range weapons, sub-machine guns, shotguns, etc.
This is how the game looks:
