As mentioned above, the Free Fire Red Light, Green Light mode is inspired from the first episode of Netflix Squid Games. Once you enter into the mode, you’ll be joined by other players wearing the same outfit as you. The goal here is to go to the finish line without getting noticed by the doll. The doll is designed in a way that it will sing a melody and turn back to the players every 2-5 seconds. 

If you move after the doll stops singing, you’ll die instantly via lighting. The best way to win this game is to move slowly, and keep your eyes on the doll. However, you have to make sure you finish the race before the time runs out. Whoever passes the finish line first will be selected as the winner.
