The goal of surviv.io is to be the last player standing. You only live once per game - there is no respawn!
If you've played other battle royale games like PUBG, Fortnite or H1Z1, then you're already halfway there! Think of surviv.io as 2D PUBG (with slightly less desync and more chicken).
Loot and Kill
You'll begin the game with no items other than a simple backpack. Move around the map to find loot: weapons, ammo, scopes, and medical items. Eliminate other players and you can take their loot!
Red = Bad!
Players aren't the only thing that can hurt you. The deadly red zone will move in from the sides of the map and deal increasingly greater damage if you stand in it. Keep an eye on the map and stay safe.
Gather up your three best friends (or the three best players amongst your friends), and enter into the controlled chaos that is squad mode. You don't know true fear until you've been pursued and shot at by four angry yellow circles.
We've also spruced up the leaderboard to allow sorting by game mode. The "Most kills" category will display all the members of the team that contributed to the kill total for that game. All other categories will show individual prowess only.
Finally, we gave our client a much-needed performance boost. We hear you guys loud and clear, and will continue to work on upgrading our client to create the best experience possible.
We hope you all enjoy squad mode! If you're looking for teammates, look no further than our marvelous Discord server!
Home is where the loot is with the arrival of two new buildings, two new building features and FIVE new obstacle types!
The barn and red house feature the latest in home construction technology: windows and doors. Windows can be broken and shot through, but cannot be moved through. Doors can be opened by pressing F, or by punching them.
These two buildings also contain several new furnishings. Drawers and cabinets can be destroyed for their precious loot. Tables can be hidden underneath for a sneaky home ambush. The refrigerator and oven reflect bullets, but beware the oven! Gas leaks are no joking matter.
We've also added emote customization. Click the surviv.io icon next to the name input field to access the emote loadout menu. Additional emotes can be unlocked by following us on Twitter, subscribing to our YouTube channel or liking us on Facebook. If you've already performed one of these actions, simply click the unlock button and the emotes will unlock.
In addition to the main emote wheel, players can customize two triggered emotes: on-win (chicken) and on-death (skull and crossbones).
Move over 7.62, there's a new sheriff in town. The good folks at the surviv.io armory have distributed not one, not two, not three, but FOUR new guns chambered for the 5.56 NATO round.
First up is the HK416 assault rifle. If you like the MAC-10, well, meet his roided up bigger brother. The HK416 may not achieve the insane cyclic rates of the MAC-10, but it packs a harder punch.
Next we've got the FAMAS bullpup assault rifle. It's a burst-fire only weapon with a 25-round magazine. Accuracy will be at a premium, but if you can land your shots, this puppy will take a serious bite out of the competiton.
Third in line is the Mk 12 Special Purpose Rifle. A semi-automatic DMR with 20-round magazines, this gun will draw comparisons to the M39 EMR. While the Mk 12 deals less damage per bullet than the M39, it fires at a much faster rate and at greater velocity.
Our final 5.56 weapon is a doozy. It's by far the rarest gun in the game and ridiculously strong. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the [REDACTED]. Information on this weapon is limited, but what we do know is that it features [REDACTED] and a [REDACTED], making it an efficient killing tool that will immediately make it's owner a chicken dinner favorite.
Which gun needs a nerf? And why is it the Mk 12? Please let us know on our Discord channel.
