A small but useful patch parachuted into Survarium this past week, bringing with it improved feedback for combat encounters, technical improvements, and even more weapons. But where are the hugs?

“The Fringe Settlers get to please their fans with Fort-401 light machine gun which replaces RPK-74m on tier 8,” the patch notes said. “The RPK-74M is now available on the 8nd equipment tier of the Renaissance Army. Moreover, there are two new rare weapons: L85A2 — tier 8 assault rifle, and Pancor Jackhammer — tier 10 automatic shotgun.”

Survarium deploys patch 0.40 to its live servers with UI changes and weapon modules

Sure, you’re in the middle of a pitched battle for survival with whatever you can find in Survarium, but that doesn’t mean that you should have to suffer through the indignity of using a stock weapon. Who just picks up a gun and shoots it? Animals, that’s who. You, however, can unlock brand-new weapon modifications in the game by scoring kills with your weapon of choice, each of which will have an effect upon the weapon’s performance and overall profile.

The latest patch to the game also brings UI improvements to make the lobby easier to navigate and more appealing to look at – you don’t need to suffer through ugly UIs while surviving, either. As is the custom, there’s a video just below detailing the major changes of the patch in a quick sweep, or you can read through the patch notes for detailed descriptions of the weapon mods and how they operate.

Survarium patch 0.34 adds Christmas-themed raiding and improved netcode

The good news is that if you’re reading this today, you’ve managed to survive the holiday rush. The question, then, is whether or not you can survive Survarium‘s Christmas-themed events, which allow players to received festive toys and exchange them for new unique guns. You could probably shoehorn that in under the spirit of giving if you assume that firing a bullet at another player is like gifting that bullet.

Logging in will reward a player with a unique camo as well as a fire monkey decal, so even if you’re not so good at shooting others down, you’ll still get something. The patch that adds the holiday event also improves the game’s netcode to provide greater stability and smoother movement for all players. You can check out a video tour of the changes down below.
