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.
The leaves are turning on the Island, from green to yellow and brown. And in our new squad-only woods mode, the leaves will turn to RED. (Because of the blood, and the red zone.)
A number of new and exciting changes await in this limited time mode. Many of the iconic Island buildings are missing completely! In their place, discover the logging camp, a massive complex that features high quality loot both above and below (hint, hint).
Only LMGs and shotguns will spawn in woods mode, including one new gun of each type. The USAS-12 shotgun is your standard-issue automatic shotgun ... except for the frightfully lethal 12 gauge frag rounds it fires. The vintage BAR M1918 light machine gun can put a real dent into players and trees alike, but its 20-round magazines will have you screaming "Reload!" at your squad more often than not.
Remember, woods mode will only be around for a limited time! For the spiciest leaks and latest news, follow us on Instagram.
To the brave souls that play surviv.io on mobile ... you have not been forgotten. Today's update brings a slew of upgrades to assist you on your quest for chicken to-go. We'll go over just a few of these features - visit the changelog for the full rundown.
Mobile survivrs, you'll now actually face the direction you're moving in! On top of that, we've added an aiming line that will display while firing a weapon. These two changes will greatly improve your ability to aim with the touch pads.
Speaking of touch pads, we've adjusted the available pad styles and the sensitivity of pad actions. These changes will make moving and shooting on mobile far more responsive.

Grass is greener
The sands have run out on the flare gun event, and the Model 94 and Peacemaker are hitting the ol' dusty trail. Worry not ... the desert rain will fall again.
Thanks again to all our participants, and a special shout-out to the event's top fragging and damaging squad: fumi, disconnected, the-lone-wolf, and Kyle, who achieved a torrid 35-kill game!

PARMA supplies have reached critical levels again, but this time, they've also got way too much sand! It's coarse and rough and irritating and it's getting everywhere. For a limited time only, squad mode will once more feature massively increased flare gun spawns.
This time around, you'll have a few new weapons for the final shootout at Ranchito Pollo. The Model 94 lever-action repeating rifle, chambered in .45 ACP, fires a speedy, accurate and decently powerful bullet.
It's companion gun is the Peacemaker revolver, also chambered in .45 ACP. The Peacemaker is deadly accurate when tap-firing, but it's real strength shows when you hold down fire and "fan the hammer." All remaining rounds in the revolver will empty at an insane pace, albeit, with a steep accuracy penalty.
