5 MAIN CHARACTERS FROM FREE FIRE WHOSE ABILITIES WERE REVAMPED IN 2021
Free Fire characters' abilities go through buffs or nerfs in almost every major upgrade that the Battle Royale title brings. Garena does this to ensure a certain level of parity when it comes to the character's abilities in general.
The OB27 update, about six months ago, on Free Fire saw a big change from reworking the characters' abilities and, as usual, many of them got better.
Not all character changes in Free Fire were for the better
1) Chrono (CR7)
Chrono is one of two characters whose ability has been nerfed twice, once in the OB27 update and the other in the OB30.
Increased Speed : the speed at which the Chrono increased when using the shield decreases from 30% to 15% at maximum level.
Friends' speed : before Chrono also gave greater speed to friends who were within the operating range, now it won't have this ability anymore.
Shield Time : The shield time has also been reduced, at maximum level, the time has dropped from 9 to 8 seconds in duration.
Cool-down time : Lastly, the cool-down time has also increased, from 40 seconds earlier to 170 seconds. Cooldown Time is the amount of time between using the character's ability.
Movement speed - 5/7/9/11/13/15% -> 5/6/7/8/9/10%
Skill Duration - 3/4/5/6/7/8s -> 3/3/4/4/5/5s
Time to use skill - 200/192/185/179/174/170S -> 250/242/235/229/224/220S.
The waiting time to re-use the Wukong skill was significantly increased in the OB27 update, and players' movement speed was reduced while under the skill's effect in the OB30 version.
Transformation duration: 15 seconds;
Shooting will cancel the illusion effect;
Taking down an enemy will reset the skill's cooldown.

Movement speed has been reduced by 20% when the skill is activated.
Rafael used to be an active Free Fire character with cooldowns of 90 seconds to 40 seconds. However, your ability was converted to passive in the OB27 update.
Players can silence shots on the map for eight seconds with their active skill. Its new passive ability allows users to hit enemies and make them suffer 20, 23, 27, 32, 38, 45% HP loss faster, based on the character's level.
It also has a silencing effect if players use sniper rifles and snipers.
4) Hayato "the Fearless"
Previously, Hayato's awakened ability was reworked and converted to passive. Pack had a cooldown of 50 seconds and allowed players to reduce frontal damage by 20%.
Now, Pack is a passive skill. Frontal damage is reduced by 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5% for every 10% loss of maximum HP.
Evelyn's active ability, Hiding the Outo, gained a significant buff in the OB28 update.
