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.
We've added match histories to your player stats pages. You can now view your performance in an individual match, as well as the complete player ranking for that match. Want to see the profile of that player who hit the luckiest Mosin shot of their life to steal your chicken dinner? Now you can!
We're also busy working on our next content update, which should land sometime in the next few weeks. While that's cooking, please visit us on our Discord server and you might just peek a sneaky leak or two.

Log and load
Accounts have arrived. Log in by pushing the button in the top-right corner of the main menu, and choosing one of the four social log in options. Once logged in, you'll be prompted to create an account name. You can change your profile picture through the account settings, or by clicking the profile picture icon.
After logging in you'll notice a "My Stats" button underneath your profile name and picture: pushing this will take you to your brand new stats profile on our new stats site! Here you'll be able to view your personal surviv.io stats across each game mode. This stats profile page will be expanded greatly - we'll be adding player ratings, match histories, individual gun stats, as well as a slew of fun categories. Stay tuned!
On the stats site, you'll also find the newly reset leaderboards. We've removed top 5 percentage and added two new categories: most damage and win streak. Most damage will track the highest individual damage dealt in a game mode, and win streak tracks how many consecutive victories you can achieve in a game mode.
That's not all! Presenting the docks, the Island's once bustling port. The ships have fled, but the loot remains. Scour the warehouses and containers for precious seaside booty, including our latest gun, the SV-98 bolt-action sniper rifle. Just call it Mosin 2.0: this sucker shoots faster, hits harder, and can reload more than one 7.62mm round at a time.
For the rest of this update's additions, fixes and changes, please consult the changelog. As always, the best place to find squadmates and discuss surviv.io is on our Discord server.

In celebration of reaching 100,000 YouTube subscribers, we're releasing a recently discovered bunker orientation video from the Island.

Three heads are better than one
The second largest bunker ever constructed on the island, Hydra bunker is the central subject testing facility for the Poultry Applications and Research on Metabolic Augmentation Initiative. Scientists at this bunker developed the serums responsible for enhancing test subject strength, speed, and pain tolerance. Find Hydra, and you may just find ...
The Vector submachine gun: it's time to put those 420 rounds of 9mm sitting in your backpack to use. Spitting 33 bullets at a rate of fire even the MAC-10 would be envious of, this modern piece of weapons technology will chew through ammo faster than you can say "reload." Grab this gun, and you'll be pointed straight towards a chicken dinner.
The best place to find teammates and Initiative scientists is on our Discord server. New recruits are always welcome! Come join us as we continue our survey of this mysterious island.
