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.
It’s time to put out the fire and call in the dogs: the desert rain event is now over.
We're busy prepping our next update, but in the meantime, you can forage for leaks on our Discord server or get blasted by memes on our Instagram.

Gunfight at the Deadeye Saloon
The desert rain is falling again, and the weather isn't the only thing that's changing. Two additional .45 ACP firearms join the Peacemaker and Model 94: the M1911 pistol and M1A1 submachine gun. Both are commonly found weapons with power levels on par with the M9 and MP5, respectively. And speaking of 9mm guns, you won't find any in the desert this week!
Of course, what's a desert without a proper deserted town? Head down main street and find a what's what of Island buildings, including the police station, bank, two cabins and a fine barn. If you're feeling parched, mosey on down to the saloon for a cold beverage and a happifying tune.
As per usual, flare gun spawns are massively increased in this mode. Strike now while the iron is hot, because the desert rains will only fall for a limited time!
Download the app on the Google Play Store for the best surviv.io experience on Android. If you like what you see, please give us a 5-star rating!
Later this week, look for the Island's return to a drier, .45ier climate ...

365 days later
Whence the last candle burns on All Hallow's Eve, shall the obstacle hunt bow and take leave.
In other words, the Halloween event is now over. Did you solve the Riddle of Six and unlock the diabolic power of the Eye? Or did you get tricked with a single round of .45 ACP?
Today also marks the official completion of one year in the life of surviv.io! When we embarked on this incredible journey 365 days ago, we didn't think there would be any journey at all, much less an incredible one. The game has surpassed our wildest expectations, and we're excited to see how surviv.io evolves over year two!
Since the big stats wipe back in June, we've been promising a viewable archive of the old leaderboards. In true surviv.io fashion, we're delivering on that promise when you least expected. Behold, the surviv.io Hall of Fame.
