Free Fire is the ultimate survival multiplayer shooter game published by Garena. It utilizes a battle royale setting where the last man (or team) standing wins. In 2019, Free Fire was recognized as the most downloaded mobile game by Google Play Store.
Beyond mobile gaming, did you know that you can also enjoy all the action on a bigger screen? Thanks to various Android emulators, you can now play Free Fire on your PC or laptop. The game will work on most emulators including Bluestacks, Nox, MEmu Play and GameLoop. Simply download the game, open your emulator and start clicking for Booyahs.
Why play Free Fire on PC?
Playing Free Fire on PC has its benefits:
- The bigger screen enables you to get a better view of your surroundings, including seeing enemies more clearly.
- With a PC, you can customize your controls to get a better grip of the game. You don’t have to stick with conventional button placement if that does not work for you.
- Not everyone has a smartphone good enough for smooth gaming experience. Better to invest in an average PC than a slightly expensive smartphone.
- There are shooter gamers who find it more comfortable using a keyboard and mouse for aiming and shooting. Playing on PC lets you maintain your muscle memory — it’s easier to land a headshot using a mouse.
- Streaming is easier with a PC if you ever decide to follow the trend.
