Free Fire is one of the most popular PUBG alternatives out there with the game crossing over 500 million downloads on the Google Play Store alone. 

The game offers fast-paced battle royale gameplay where  50 players drop in either of the three beautifully made maps and fight it out to the last man standing in matches that last for about 10 minutes.

The maps, buildings, vehicles, guns and equipment or accessories themselves are made with enough realism to feel challenging yet implemented in such a way that the game is still fun to play. 

With the game booming in popularity each day across the world, Garena, developers of the game have had a hard time keeping with the server demands all across the world.

However, the developers continue to introduce newer servers each day to their player base so that players can focus more on enjoying the game rather than worrying about ping and lags — something that can totally ruin your game’s experience. 

In this article, we’re going to talk about how you can change your connected server in Free Fire to get the most out of the game and avoid any crashes or lags.

Free Fire doesn’t give players any freedom to choose their own servers. By default, players get connected to their nearest servers automatically. However, you can trick this system using a VPN. 

First up, make sure that you’ve cleared out all your game’s app data. Here’s how you can do that.
