Garena Free Fire has a rather large collection of characters players can unlock for the game. Not all the characters can be gotten for free, as you have to use a few in-game currencies to buy them. However, most of them are worth the money, and that’s why we recommend you try the ones that appeal to you the most.
With that in mind, the third anniversary of Garena Free Fire is slowly approaching, which made the developers offer players an opportunity to win a free character. Read on to find out how to get your hands on it.
Get a Free Character From the Anniversary Event
Garena Free Fire announced on their official Facebook page that all players would be able to get their hands on one of the in-game characters for free on August 23rd. Still, there is a pre-requisite Free Fire laid down: players will have to share the event post in order to unlock the pool of characters.
There are three different milestones, and passing each of them will provide you with free access to a certain set of characters:
- Upon reaching 150,000 shares, five characters will be unlocked
- Upon reaching 300,000 shares, 15 characters will be unlocked
- Upon reaching 400,000 shares, 26 characters will be unlocked
NOTE: It is important to remember that the opportunity is only available between August 8th to 11th.
As of now, the second milestone has already been crossed, which means the third one will definitely be broken soon. Still, the most challenging part of this process is which character to choose. Since you can only get one of them, it will probably make the decision more difficult. On the other hand, this is a win-win situation for you, as you are guaranteed the character for free.
As per recent rumors, the game will also see more updates rolling out in the next few days and weeks.

If DJ Alok is one of the characters you definitely want to have, or for that matter, any of the other characters available, you can get it on August 23rd by following a few simple steps the developers have noted in their Facebook post.
To unlock a free character, you need to follow the steps listed below:

Again, it is important that you remember the chance to share the post is only available between August 8th to 11th.
Free Character – DJ Alok
DJ Alok is one of the most popular characters that were added to the title just a while ago. His ability is known as ‘Drop the Beat,’ which, when used, it generates a 5-meter aura, increasing the ally movement speed by 10 percent and supplies 5 HP for five seconds.
There are eight different levels of the character, and at each level, its abilities improve. At the final level, DJ Alok has a 5-meter aura that increases the ally movement speed by 15 percent and restores 5 HP for a full ten seconds.
