Free Fire OB28 update: list of new features

With Free Fire OB28 update, the players and enthusiasts will be able to experience the game with new features including Clash Squad Season 7. There is new pet rumble, new weapon, grenades HUD, weapon stats adjustment and more. Here is a look at some of the new features:

Dr. Beanie (New Pet)

We have seen the game get a new pet with the release of every new advance server. With the release of Free Fire OB28 Advance Server, we now have a new pet called Dr. Beanie. The pet is described as “He insists on everyone calling him Dr. He is not one, though.”

The skill of this new pet is called ‘Dashy Duckwalk’, which reportedly buffs the movement speed in the crouch position by 30 percent. At the highest level, the increase in speed is said to be around 60 percent.

D-Bee (New character)

Characters play a central role in Free Fire and Garena is known for frequently expanding the number of characters available in the game. With the Free Fire OB28 update, the players and enthusiasts can look forward to seeing a new character called D-Bee. This character is described by the developer as a “music maker and street dancer.”

The D-Bee character comes with a passive ability that increases the movement speed and accuracy by a certain percentage while moving. The increment in movement speed is initially limited to 35 percent. However, with the increase in level, the movement speed can improve by 70 percent with the new character.

New Weapons

In addition to new characters and pets, Free Fire OB28 Advance Server update also brings two new firearms named Kingfisher and Uzi. The Kingfisher is an AR but its key states haven’t been revealed by the developer yet. However, it is said to offer a very high fire rate, which makes it a potent weapon.

Uzi needs no introduction and in Free Fire, the firearm is finally being made available to the players. The firearm uses HG ammo and is appearing in the pistol slot. Like few other weapons, the Uzi boasts a very high fire rate and will be effective for firing in close range combat.

Changes in Settings panel

In addition to above mentioned changes, Free Fire is also making some adjustments to the settings panel of the game. The entire UI of the Settings panel has been revamped with the goal of making the game more accessible. With the OB28 update, Free Fire players and enthusiasts will see new options for the run mode and grenade shot.
