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 a few quality-of-life changes to surviv. Gun slots can now be switched, allowing you to put your 1-key gun in the 2-key slot, and vice versa. Press the T key to switch gun positions, or drag one gun to the other slot.
In the main menu settings, you'll now find an option to anonymize player names in-game. Turning this option on will turn all opponent names into generic player names.
We're planning to hold some community events in the coming weeks - join our Discord server and get notified when they kick off!

Sun's out, guns out
Beachcombers rejoice! Two new buildings grace the Island's shores: Conch bunker and the hut. These oceanbound buildings offer the less confrontational survivr a peaceful alternative to the bloodsoaked carnage further inland. Listen to relaxing waves and sink your feet into the sand as you enjoy a tranquil loot phase at the beach.
Of course, no day at the beach is complete without sunscreen shotguns. Frag in style with the newest member of the 12 gauge family: the SPAS-12. This pump-action shotgun has a 9 shell capacity, and not just any old shells, but 12 gauge flechette. Flechette ammunition is less powerful than the standard buckshot you're used to, but it travels further and faster in a tighter grouping.
Want to ask us when keybinds are coming? Is it your dream to show the surviv.io devs that you're better than they are at their own game? Follow us on Twitch and get notified the next time we go live!

A history of violence
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.
