The first thing you will notice when starting up a world is the structures. The structures will hold Loot Crates which you break to collect the loot inside.

The DBS, M416 and VSS support the possibility of aiming. Just sneak to activate the sight.

Aiming with a gun

Go Prone

Instead of sneaking, you will go prone, which basically means you lay on your front hiding from the enemy! Sneak to go prone and jump to stand back up again, if you have a gun that has a scope, sneak while prone to use it.

Go Prone feature

New Blocks


NPC's will wander around on the lookout for you, kill them first to loot their corpse and obtain some useful items.
