Battle royale is the only game mode in Surviv.io. This is a game mode where the play area shrinks, creating a red no-go zone around the map. As a result, players are forced closer to the middle, where the fight gets more intense.
Surviv.io can be played solo, duo, or in a squad (4 players).
There are many weapons you’ll come across in Surviv.io. The main weapon categories are as follows:
- Assault rifles
- Sniper rifles
There are numerous weapons in these categories, all with their own stats, which can be found as loot throughout the map.
There are also perks in the game, which are found by looting or acquired through player roles. Perks give you special abilities like health regeneration and greater adrenaline. There are many more perks, which can be used to your advantage throughout the game.
