Why Is Free Fire More Popular Than PUBG Mobile? (2022)

Why Is Free Fire More Popular Than PUBG Mobile? This is the most ongoing question among gamers nowadays. There are numerous online games available on mobile platforms. But PUBG Mobile and GARENA Free Fire are the most trending online games in Nepal these days. However, GARENA Free Fire is much more popular than PUBG Mobile among kids in Nepal nowadays.

There used to be days when all the kids from the neighborhood used to gather around and play. Kids were so fond of outdoor games then. It’s not like there were no indoor games. Many kids used to play indoor games too, such as Ludo, Carrom Board, Snakes and Ladder, and so on. Now, technology has come a long way. New generations are addicted to online games now.

Comparison

PUBG Mobile was developed by Brendan Greene, and GARENA Free Fire was developed by 111 dots Studio. Well, both PUBG Mobile and GARENA Free Fire are online Battle Royale games. Both games are available on the Android and iOS platforms. And both games are completely free to download.

In general, most of the game features are nearly the same compared to both PUBG Mobile and Free Fire. The concepts of the games are similar. All the players land on an isolated island, and the last man standing wins the game. Both of the players are able to play in solo mode, duo mode, or in a squad of four players.

Well, PUBG Mobile is a high-end game. Most devices cannot support it. Only the latest and highest-end gadgets can support the full high settings. So, playing PUBG Mobile on a low-end device is not a good choice.

Whereas, GARENA Free Fire is supported by most devices. So anyone with low-end devices can enjoy the game to the fullest. This may be the one reason.

And moving to graphics, PUBG Mobile has high-quality graphics and high sensitivity, making it more realistic. It’s not like the GARENA Free Fire graphics are bad, but they look close to cartoons. Furthermore, it is difficult to adjust the sensitivity in PUBG Mobile compared to GARENA Free Fire.

Therefore, this may be another reason that most kids prefer GARENA Free Fire. Additionally, Free Fire players can choose their favorite characters free of charge, but players need to buy the characters in PUBG Mobile, which is expensive.

Free Fire is less competitive than PUBG Mobile

PUBG Mobile has become more competitive these days. Lots of tournaments keep happening every year. Recently, Nepali PUBG Mobile players have shown outstanding gameplay in PUBG Mobile global tournaments.

DRS, DeadEyes Guys, T2K, Elementrix, Skylightz Gaming, Vibes, etc are some of the most popular competitive teams in Nepal. So, being a competitive game, PUBG Mobile is hard to play. So, this may be another reason that kids like Garena Free Fire more.

Additionally, the auto-aim feature of GARENA Free Fire is more effective compared to PUBG Mobile. So, it is a bit easier to track down enemies in GARENA Free Fire. But, in both games, it’s all about skills and strategy. It’s not like Free Fire is an easy game. I am just comparing in a competitive way.

Age Factor

Match-making may be another reason. Because most of the PUBG Mobile players are adults from age 18 to 30 years old, when match-making, it is obvious to get matched with older guys.

Furthermore, there are more chances in Garena Free Fire to get matched with players of the same age. So, this may be another reason why Free Fire is more popular than PUBG Mobile among kids in Nepal. But, both games are comparatively great and fun to play.

There are numerous streamers in Nepal making lots of progress playing these games. They normally go live streaming for nearly 8 hours a day. There is a huge trend of live-streaming these days in Nepal. Mostly, all streamers in Nepal do a live stream on YouTube and Facebook.

However, in other countries, streamers mostly prefer Twitch, which is the most popular and biggest live-streaming platform. Some famous Nepalese streamers are 4k Gaming Nepal, 2B Gamer, Mr. Junior, Mr. Hyozu, and so on.

2B Gamer is one of the top GARENA Free Fire players/streamers with 3.53 million subscribers. Whereas, 4k Gaming Nepal is the top PUBG Mobile streamer with 1.03 million subscribers.

Nepal Gaming Community

The Nepali gaming communities are making a lot of progress these days. Lots of tournaments are organized in these communities with better pool prizes. Many players are earning lots of cash by playing in such tournaments. Whereas, streamers often do “charity streams” for donations to help out the victims and poor people.

Well, female gamers are also on the rise these days. There are many female gamers in Nepal. Some of them are Indu Malla Gaming, Wiffeyy, T2K Wasabi and so on.

However, it’s a sad thing that, not a single GARENA Free Fire tournament has ever happened in Nepal. Maybe in the near future, we will be lucky to see the Free Fire tournaments.

Okay, let’s get to the conclusion. Regarding the above-mentioned points, the reasons for kids preferring Garena Free Fire may be as follows.

  1. Supportable With Almost Every Device
  2. Graphics
  3. Less Competitive
  4. Match-making With The Same Age Group

Well, these are just predictions. There may be other reasons too. It depends on what the kids think about these games. Finally, neither of the games should be taken too seriously. Kids should play these games just for fun and should spend less time on them.
