Assessing the basic differences of Free Fire and Free Fire Max

1. Animation changes

Gun Reload: Every weapon in Free Fire Max has a different reload animation from that in Free Fire with the most unique reload animation is of M1887.  In the Max version, the character reloads the gun with one hand, unlike Free Fire which has almost the same reload animation for every weapon.

The single sniper reloads bug is also removed in Free Fire Max. When the player shoots from any sniper, the scope button disables for a few seconds (for reloading animation). Moreover, the player cannot reload sniper when there is bullet ejection animation going on.

Katana Animation: As maximum players know Garena has had numerous anime collaborations, and as a part of that, they are adding a special katana swing in Free Fire Max.

This new animation seems alike to the speed-o-sonic from the One Punch Man collaboration. Moreover, the katana swing has a Blue light animation when Katana swings. The legendary katana, however, will have enhanced animation.

Vehicle Tyre Animation: From the past few updates, Free Fire is changing vehicles by adding very minor features to them. And now in the Max version, the developers added tyre burn marks on the ground when a player uses brake in the vehicle. However, this will only happen only when the vehicle has drifted or stopped. Also, developers have added tyre smoke effects when the vehicle moves at high speed or on dirt tracks.

Eating Animation: Free Fire was being criticized because it totally showcased some really unnatural eating animation but in Free Fire Max, the developers have changed eating animation and added hand moments for eating mushrooms.

2. Enhanced in-game Settings

In Free Fire Max, there will be a different section for the in-game settings. These settings can be turned off and on. Turning off the Max settings will convert your settings to the default settings of normal Free Fire.

Login video: In Free Fire Max, the player will get to see a music video of the latest event. The music video is published on the Free Fire official Youtube channel and after that gets introduced in MAX in the Login window

Lobby Style: The classic lobby style in Free Fire Max is the same as Free Fire. However, the dynamic lobby style makes the lobby 3d which means players can rotate the lobby and showcase skins. The players can also showcase their rank in 3D lobby style.

3. Craftland Mode

In this new mode, Free Fire Max players can make their own maps (only available for clash squad). After building their own map player can add their friend and play clash squad for free.

This map gets uploaded and then can be downloaded/used by others.
