Free Fire OB40 Update APK Download Link for Android Devices

The third major Free Fire update of the year has arrived, with Garena releasing the early OB40 update today. Unlike most of the time, the developers have made some changes from the distribution of the latest version, since the servers will not be taken down for maintenance. Also, you can access the older version for a few days, albeit with limited features.

After downloading the latest version, you will find a new achievement system, a new Clash Squad mode, tons of Battle Royale changes, weapon and character changes, and other exciting content. In addition, various exciting events are expected.

Step by step procedure to download the Free Fire OB40 update on Android devices
