But what if I am using a Nox player from a PC?

Don’t worry. We got you COVERED! You must be facing recent issues of running the Free Fire game with the “Failed to save file” error after installation. Press “OK” several times till you are in the game.

Once you are, use the following tips:

1.  Look out for a Minimap:  This will assist you to look out for safe zones and the danger that awaits you. Moreover, you can locate the gunshots directly with the minimap. Take the opportunity to kill your opponent or cover for yourself.

2.  An isolated location is the best solution: If you are in a secluded spot, the chances of your survival are higher. But be careful to not lose out on any weapons or equipment to cover.

3.  Keyboard + Control = Shoot to win: You can customise your keyboard settings and take quick actions. Check out for special instructions with special letters- like WASD means walking direction, TAB refers to bag opening.

4.  Your Gear is your Shield: Your defence depends on your access to weaponry and medical equipment but more importantly, your helmet and vest. They will save you from any crossfires and provide the maximum protection.

With these, you are ready to ace the games. Remember to use the tips and software to have maximum experience of this mayhem survival game where crisis looms everywhere!
