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 whipped up a quick tutorial video on how to use the new team pings and emotes. Just one view, and you'll be spamming emotes like a seasoned pro!

It's pin pulling time, baby! Frag grenades are here, and they pack a wallop. Once acquired, grenades will populate the new THIRD weapon slot. Hold left-mouse button to pull the pin, then let go and watch your grenade fly. The brave amongst you can let the fuse burn down and try for a mid-air explosion ... at the risk of watching it explode in your hand.
It's also ping pushing time! Use the new team ping and emote wheels to let your teammates (and enemies) know how you really feel.
To access the team ping wheel, hold C, then hold right-mouse button and drag towards the desired ping and release the mouse button.. There are three team pings available, and you can also ping the minimap or full map. The team ping wheel also features two team emotes, to request ammo or medical. These pings and emotes are viewable ONLY to yourself and your team.
The emote wheel can be accessed by holding right-mouse button, dragging, and releasing. These emotes are viewable by teammates and enemies alike. Don't get too spammy, or you'll get put on a long cooldown before you can emote (or ping) again.

Glock n' spiel
We've got a handful of quality of life updates for you guys. First up is menu and in-game localization for eight languages! You'll find the language selector in the bottom right corner. These languages were chosen based upon the regions where surviv.io is most popular, but we hope to add more in the future.
Next we've got previous weapon swap: press Q to swap to the last equipped weapon. You can now also scroll to change weapons. Scroll up or down to change your equipped weapon.
Medical items are now hotkeyed as follows:
7 - Bandage
8 - Med Kit
9 - Soda
0 - Pills
Finally, we added the Glock 18C pistol.

Blood in the water
The world of surviv.io just got a lot saltier: the border of the map is now surrounded by ocean waters. Beware the shallows, as you'll move slower in water and have no cover to hide behind.
The new beach area offers far more safety, and two new obstacles. The hedgehog anti-tank obstacle is indestructible and provides great cover from multiple angles. For you treasure hunters, very rare pirate chests can be found on the shore, containing several pieces of high quality booty.
And one more thing ... introducing the UMP9 submachine gun! The UMP9 uses a 30 round magazine chambered for 9mm, and is set to fire in 3 shot bursts. This weapon is exceptionally accurate and steady, while also boasting the highest damage per round of any 9mm weapon.
