First steps

In this article we've tried to gather all the information that may be necessary for beginners to get started in the world of Survarium.

When you first enter the game, you will be prompted to choose a character's face and change the nickname. Please note that in future this feature will be available only for premium currency. Information on changing the face and/or nickname is available here.


After selecting your character's face you will be able to choose which faction you will be working with. This will determine what equipment you will get with increasing reputation with this faction. You will be able to change faction at any moment throughout the game. Read more about working with factions here.

The list of factions is available here.


Gaining experience your character's level will increase. With each level you gain skill points that you can use to learn skills in the "Character" window. Read more about the skills in this article.

To gain experience, reputation with factions or game currency faster you can use boosters purchased for gold or got as a reward after battle.

All information about skills is available in the relevant section of our Knowledge Base.


After a  battle you will often come across better weapons and equipment. Note that searching the battlefield is not the only way to obtain them. In the Workshop you will be able to upgrade your equipment. Read our article about item modification to learn more.

In addition to weapons and equipment, on the battlefield you will also find silver, spare parts, boosters and vouchers for premium account. By default you have only one attempt, but using stash maps you will be able to ransack up to five stashes per battle.


As you may have noticed, many of the game features are available for both silver and gold. As a rule, the use of premium currency can speed up the process of leveling your character (in particular, through the use of a premium account), weapons and equipment, or provide additional customization features that do not affect game balance. Thus, premium equipment sets and weapons have the same properties as their "free" counterparts, but also have a bonus to silver, experience and reputation.

Survarium is a free2play MMOFPS game set in the near future. The game focuses on the aftermath of a massive ecological catastrophe on Earth, the reasons behind which are only vaguely known.

Impassable woods advance onto cities from every side, as maddened animals and birds attack industrial complexes, military structures, warehouses and power-plants. Strange plants and mushrooms grow through concrete and steel. Scientists all over the world haplessly try to cope with the anomaly expanding with terrifying speed across the planet. Countries collapse; anarchy spreads throughout the world. Now force dictates who can survive.

The game is developed with new proprietary Vostok Engine technology.
