Garena Free Fire: Booyah Day Patch Notes is now officially released. You can update game on 21 September. Here is what’s new with this new patch update.
Tatsuya: Impulsive Hothead
“Tatsuya was a shy and sympathetic boy in his childhood. After his father’s death and the discovery that he was a traitor to the city, Tatsuya and his surviving family suffered endless prejudice and discrimination. He became a truant, who hung out with gangs, and fought against other teenagers who dared to speak ill of his family.Having lived in the hustling and bustling city of Griza, Tatsuya is used to all kinds of brawling and has been using his agile speed for attack and defense. Whether it is to ambush his enemies or to swiftly find cover to retreat, Tatsuya is always on top of his game.”
Dashes forward at a rapid speed for 0.2/0.2/0.2/0.3/0.3/0.3s. Dash replenish time: 175/160/150/140/130/120s. This skill can be accumulated for up to 2 uses, with a 5-second cooldown between each use.
Skill Balancing Adjustments
Increased the speed of HP recovery.
“Dimitri was designed to enhance the survival capabilities of teammates while engaging in intense combat. Now, the character provides more health recovery to the team. You can probably argue that you carried the entire team even when you had been knocked down ;)”
Creates a 3.5m-diameter healing zone. Inside, user and allies recover 3HP/s → 5HP/s. When downed, user and allies can self-recover to get up. Lasts for 10/11/12/13/14/15s. Cooldown 85/80/75/70/65/60s.
Increased movement speed and accuracy.
“As you may already know, moving around while firing has low accuracy, and the accuracy boost of Bullet Beats isn’t powerful enough to help you win the battle. So, in this patch, we improved the accuracy and movement speed of Bullet Beats, so that D-Bee could still slay with swag.”
When firing while moving, movement speed increases by 10/12/14/16/18/20% → 20/22/24/26/28/30%, accuracy increases by 20/23/27/32/38/45% → 35/38/42/47/53/60%.
Increased the durability of Gloo Walls.
“Skyler, Iris, and the new throwable, Gloo Melter – there are now many ways to counter-attack a Gloo Wall. But of course, Nairi will not allow his Ice Iron to be easily destroyed!”
Once deployed, Gloo Walls recover 20/22/24/26/28/30% → 40/42/44/46/48/50% of current durability every 1s. 30/31/32/33/34/35% increase in damage when using ARs on Gloo Walls.
Increased EP gained when knockdown.
“Crazier risk, crazier return. As you all know, we reworked Miguel’s skill in the previous patch. However, we noticed that the competitive advantage to the skill is still not enough for consecutive combat. Therefore, in this patch, we increased the skill user’s EP boost to even things out.”
Gain 30/40/50/60/70/80 → 100/120/140/160/180/200 EP for each knockdown.
“Raise your hand if you often struggle to aim at moving enemies even when scoped in. This patch, Laura will be a sharper shooter to help you aim and fire at your foes more accurately.”
Accuracy increases by 10/13/17/22/28/35% → 25/28/32/37/43/50% while scoped in.
Increased the marking range.
“‘I equipped Damage Delivered, but I still don’t see the attacking enemy’s location!’ – if this was you, worry no more! We adjusted Shirou’s man-marking range to 100m to help you locate your enemies easier. Now just wait for Shirou to deliver your Booyah!”
When user is hit by enemy from within 80m → 100m, said attacker is marked for 6s (marking only visible to user). First shot on marked enemies has 50/58/67/77/88/100% additional armor penetration. Cooldown: 25/24/22/19/15/10s.
NeXTerra is now available in Clash Squad Ranked and Casual modes.

“Ever came so close to successfully reviving your teammates at a revival point but was discovered by an enemy and did not have a Gloo Wall to take cover? In this patch, there will be a pillar inside the revival point, not only used for indicating your revival progress but also providing cover for when enemies attack. Enjoy being celebrated as a hero who resurrected three comrades while low on HP!”

“If you often find that you run out of ammo very quickly, it’s probably because you did not attach a magazine to your weapon. Attachments are key to enhancing weapons, so don’t give all the credits to Upgrade Chips. This patch, there will be specialized attachments for different weapons.”
