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.
Desert Rain returns again, and the Island's airspace has never been more crowded! In addition to massively increased flare gun spawns, throwable strobes can be found in the desert that call in an air strike on their location.
We've also made a few adjustments to the overall game. Healing and boosting will now give off particles to indicate to your teammates (and enemies!) that you're busy medicating. Bandages can now heal all the way to 100 health. Downed players can also interact now - open doors, press buttons, etc. For the rest of the changes, check out the changelog.

The fighters are grounded as we're back to normalcy on the Island. Like always, we've got more new content in the works! And later this month will see the return of a certain arid landscape ...

50 v 50 has been extended through Sunday, Feb. 10.
For those of you who are tired of getting dunked on by air strikes, we've swapped out normal duos for squads until the completion of this 50 v 50 event.
Jan. 31, 2019
50 vs 50 has arrived. To commemorate one of the bloodiest days in Island history, we're holding a field day (or week) of massive team versus team battles.
Join up alone or with a squad, and you'll be drafted into the Red Army or the Blue Group. Once both teams have locked in, one Leader will be randomly chosen for each side. Leaders get a variety of perks, including a new gun and a new melee weapon! Leader pings are also visible and audible to every member of your team.
The enemy team isn't the only new danger in 50v50. Strike aircraft have been tasked with making frequent air strikes and you do not want to be caught in the bombing zone. Head indoors for relative safety, or attempt your best safety dance as the bombs fall around you.
Will you rout the Red Army with a devastating flanking maneuver? Or will the Blue Group be crushed under the weight of a decisive pincer attack? Tell us your best war story on our Discord server or on Instagram.
