Survarium 0.44 Highlights

Client-Side BattlEye Anticheat

The game client is now protected by the BattlEye system! The system will detect the hackers and automatically ban them. Other players will be notified accordingly in the match or in the game lobby. Our goal is to ensure fair play for all the players in Survarium, therefore we'll stay vigilant and continue fighting against cheaters. Play fair and win gloriously in Survarium!

Treasure Hunt Weekly Event

Search for trophies after battles is no longer available, and there is a weekly event instead called Treasure Hunt with better loot! Now there is always a high quality item (unique or premium) as the best possible reward. The number and quality of the prizes depend on your character's maximum rank in a faction. You will be able to get a couple trophies for free (using free stash maps), and the rest of the prizes by using stash maps as usual. If you are lucky, you'll get the best trophy for free!

C-4 Plastic Explosive

C-4 explosive with a remote detonator is available on equipment tier 8 at Black Market and takes the whole slot for explosives. We hope you will like new tactical opportunities that present themselves with the introduction of this special item.

High Level Pistols

Survarium never used to have effective pistols on the higher equipment tiers, and now there are 4 tier 7 pistols in the game. Three were added in the update: Italian Beretta 93R, Czech CZ-75, and Russian MP-443 Grach. Moreover, Colt Python revolver was moved to tier 7 and its stats were adjusted accordingly.

Bots (AI Opponents) for Newcomers

Starting with Survarium 0.44, all newcomers will play their first matches against bots.They will not be able to challenge the players, since initially AI's abilities will be limited. But the bots will become ideal sparring partners for the new players, so they can learn the game mechanics in a less stressful environment. Additionally, Training vs. Bots is available for all equipment tiers.
