4/5 Garena Free Fire
Garena Free Fire is quite similar to PUBG MObile but it does bring freshness to the gameplay. The small intricacies of the game make it fun to play. Free Fire is easier to play when compared to games like PUBG Mobile due to easier recoil correction and saves.
5/5 Knives Out
Knives Out is a live-action game.100 players jump off onto a battlefield from choppers and start fighting the moment they touch the ground. The gameplay is quite similar to PUBG Mobile. But, within a few minutes of starting it gets paced up very fast and is sometimes very difficult to keep a track of. This might be due to smaller maps and a higher body count.
