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.
Solo woods mode is back for a spell, but we've made a few small modifications. The total number of trees has been reduced and additional clearings have been added.
There's also more curious grass, and now curious bushes! What lunacy is this?

Get a loadout
Things are about to get personal(ized) on the Island. Introducing loadouts!
Loadouts are an extension/upgrade of the emote customization system. It can be accessed through the old emote customization button, or through the new "Loadout" option in the top right corner. You must be logged in to access loadouts.
To the existing emote and player icon categories, we've added outfit skin and crosshair customization categories. Your loadout preferences are tied to your account - no more having to remake your emote setups!
This is just phase one of the loadouts rollout. We plan to add more categories, and of course, a lot more items! Let us know what you think on our Discord server.

All you can shoot
Desert air returns once more to the Island ... but rumor tells of a curious grass sprouting from the sands.
An Initiative experiment gone awry? A portent of things to come? What madness is this?
