  • Pick Your Loadout

    When you start playing you have a number of weapons and support slots to fill. It's important to choose your loadout well with the correct support skills for the weapons that you choose in order to get those weapon skills to the Evolution level.

    Basically the support skills will have a weapon icon underneath it, make sure you get the support skills that match the weapon skills that you have selected.

  • Upgrade Your Skills

    In order to survive you'll need to constantly upgrade, to do this you'll need to grab green gems/spots and earn coins in order for you to get the upgrades that you'll need to survive. As you unlock the upgrades, you'll need more and more green dots and coins to get the next upgrade.

    Look out also for the loot boxes and other items that you can run into in-game, these can give you a stash of coins, gems or even upgrades.

  • Plan Your Route

    With the large maps in Survivor!.io, you should try to plan your route in order to stay away from the horde of zombies chasing you or find the best route to kill them. Last thing you want to do is get trapped in a corner with no escape in this game.

  • Watch Some Ads

    Ads are a great way for you to get extra in-game upgrades and weapons for free, it's a bit of a hassle, but can be a quick way to level up your weapons.

  • Fill Your Slots

    You'll notice that you have six equipment slots that you can use for different items. Try to fill these slots as soon as you can especially with items that have different strengths which can be used in different situations. Look out for buff items for you to get higher defense or faster speed, these are particularly useful too.

  • Work out the best weapons for you

    The weapons available that you can equip to your weapons slot are quite varied and have different strengths and weaknesses, as you play through the levels, work out which weapons are the best for your playstyle and also the needs of the level you are playing.

    If you are having trouble with mobs on during a level, then perhaps a forcefield and other strong weapons that keep enemies away from your proximate area would be better for that level.

    Or if you are having trouble with the boss of a level, perhaps equipping a weapon such as the Kunai will give you the boss-aiming ranged attacks that you need to defeat him.

    Of course if you are lucky enough to have legendary weapons such as the Lightchaser, then these are often the best in all situations! Learn more on How to get the Lightchaser.

What are the best skills to get in the game?

This really depends on the level, and where you are having trouble in the game. Each weapon skill has different strengths, but whatever weapon you do decide to collect during gameplay, make sure you get the accompanying support skill to enable you to evolve your weapon to the top level. Learn more here about Evolution Skills and how to evolve your weapon skills.

Here are a couple of our favorite weapon skills that have stood the test of time in

  • Get the force field

    One of the strongest weapons in the game is the force field, it's a great emergency tool which will wipe out zombies that run into you, especially useful when you are blocked in a corner, or just have too many zombies chasing you.

    It is probably an essential skills to get for some levels especially if you don't have a strong weapon equipped.

  • Get the Drones

    Get the two types of drones. These are the only weapon skills that don't need a matching support skill to take them to evo level. But you do need to get both! Once they are both maxed, you can then make the final upgrade to their evolution level. This also frees up two support skill slots so that is also a big benefit.


This concludes our cheats and tips, updated for 2023. Because the game is continually being updated by the developers, we recommend that you check our Guide for more in-depth help, or drop us a question .

How do you unlock the red and yellow upgrades for equipment?

It's very tough to get to that level, basically you just need to keep merging items until that level is unlocked. I've been playing a couple of weeks and still not managed to get a yellow or red piece of equipment yet. After purple, you still have to upgrade that purple item another two times (by merging) before you get the yellow level! Check out our equipment guide for more details on merging:
