Best HUD adjustments in Free Fire
There might not be a superior custom HUD, because the arrangements vary per device, but there are some steps to take to smoothen game experience:
- The scope button should always be located where the second hand can reach quicker. This means it should either be on the top left or right side so it can easily be pressed.
- The weapon substitution should be as big as the finger needed to press to avoid accidental presses and could be held at any debatable size as it depends on the device’s screen size.
- The prone, jump, and crouch button can be placed underneath each other so they can be easily pressed In their time of need with an average (50-90%) size.
- The fire button should be big enough (41-69%) size so you can drag easily and should be placed slightly above the red horizontal line.
- The joystick size does not matter as it will always appear on the left side of the screen, whether it is above or below the vertical line.
- The sprint button is to be held at the left side so no other buttons can overlap.
- Keep all other buttons at the same place or arrange them to a preferable location.
- While hard to do, dragging any of the 2 emote buttons to the exact middle point of the screen creates a sort of aim assist, useful for snipers and other weapons that do not have a Scope button.
