All You Need to Know about Ryden’s Abilities
Ryden’s standout ability is dubbed “Poison Trap.” He can launch his explosive cyber-spider companion in a target direction as either a stealthy scout or lethal snare. The artificial arachnid has two distinct modes to support its master:
Scouting Mode: For the first 10 seconds, the zippy spider rushes forward at 2 m/s while scanning for enemies within a 5-meter radius. Its advanced sensors allow it to search for heat signatures and movement. If it detects a foe, the spider will abruptly halt and anchor itself to the ground, spinning a sturdy web. This trap ensnares victims for 30 full seconds, drastically hindering mobility with an 80% decreased movement speed. Meanwhile, the adhesive web secretes toxins that cause continuous bleed damage, draining 10 HP every second.
Detonation Mode: Whether manually triggered or once its 30-second lifespan expires, the cyber-spider enters detonation mode. It self-destructs in a powerful blast, inflicting damage to any opponents still within the blast radius. So not only does this spider handicap rivals over time, but it also delivers a devastating parting gift.

Ryden’s Weakness in Free Fire
Despite the immense strategic potential of Ryden’s signature spider, it does have some balancing weaknesses. With only 1 HP, the robo-arachnid is fragile and can be quickly crushed with a few bullets before it reaches detonation mode. And while the web fully inhibits movement, it does not affect firing rates. So entangled enemies can still unleash their weapons in a last stand if given the chance.
Overall, the addition of Ryden and his mechanical pet brings an unprecedented new element to Free Fire MAX. Players must carefully coordinate the spider’s scouting, trapping, and detonation functions to optimize impact while mitigating risks. Proper utilization of “Poison Trap” will require masterful strategy and timing. But those who can capitalize on the cyber-spider’s strengths while avoiding its vulnerabilities will gain a potent new battlefield advantage. Expect trapped opponents to cry “venom” at the influx of spider-wielding Ryden mains when OB43 goes live!
