In the Free Fire community, the use of emulators has become more and more common. Content creators have been the driving force behind this trend, regularly playing games on their PCs or laptops using emulators.
One of the explanations for this transition is the advantage of using a keyboard and mouse with macros. This easily gives PC users an advantage over mobile users and simplifies match streaming or content creation.
Following their favorite YouTubers, many gamers are looking forward to playing the game on their PC.
Steps to play Free Fire on PC using emulators
Various different Android emulators are available on the internet, and players can use the preferred option to experience the battle royale title on their PCs. Each has its features and benefits, and people are advised to select carefully based on their preferences.
Once you have chosen an emulator, you can install Garena Free Fire by following the procedures below:
Step 1: To start the procedure, install the necessary emulator on your PC and open it.
Step 2: In the second step, you can sign in with your Google account and head over to the Google Play Store app.
Step 3: Use the search bar to search for the game. Several results will appear, and you must select the appropriate one.
Step 4: Start the download by clicking the ‘Install’ button. The battle royale title will soon be installed on the respective emulator.
Step 5: Finally, open Free Fire and log in with your account to enjoy the latest version of the game on your PC.
Configuration and more details
User preferences should determine how they adjust settings. For example, people can get used to the existing key combinations or modify them according to their comfort level.
Meanwhile, coming to sensitivity, it is always recommended to keep them on the higher end. However, players will need to adjust these based on their mouse’s DPI.
Lastly, players need to change the graphics settings as per the PC specifications. Those with low-end hardware can play on the lowest settings, while users with mid-range or high-end settings can play on higher settings.
Separate emulator lobby in Free Fire
Due to its undue advantage with emulator users, Garena implemented a separate emulator lobby. This meant that only emulator players would queue up with other similar users and not those on the mobile platform. Thus, it provides a level playing field for all players.
So if there is only one emulator player in the team, the whole team will have to play against the other PC users as well.
Note: Free Fire is banned in India and due to government imposed restrictions people should avoid downloading or playing games on their devices. Instead, they can participate in the MAX version, which is not among the prohibited applications.
