Mistakes to avoid while fighting against Skyler in Free Fire

Do not use GLOO walls before Skyler uses his ability

It's a bad idea to use glue walls to protect yourselves from the enemy in the beginning of the game; it might work in Skyler's favor. His Riptide Rhythm ability can break down the gloo wall and attack the players protected behind them. In such a scenario, the players are left with only two options- either they can use another gloo wall grenade or find a hardcover if they don't have any left. Though this may not lead to an outright elimination, it will be a disadvantage for players. Hence, use the items, glue walls and other protective items in Free Fire.

Apply constant pressure on Skyler and don't let him heal

Notably, Skyler can passively heal without medkits or EP and fight back with ease. He can simply recover HP in a short duration of time by placing down a gloo wall. Hence players must not ignore this fact and not let Skyler heal. In combat, a player must keep applying constant pressure on Skyler.

Eliminate Skyler before the ability resets

Skyler's ability has a much lower cooldown time of 40 seconds when at maximum level than most other active abilities in-game. This ability can be used quite often and may cause devastating damage to you. Hence, you must ensure to eliminate Skyler before the ability resets.
