Last update: November 2023.

General Tips

If you need to heal during battle, go for the chests that are scattered around the map. With some luck you will get a meat item.

When there are many experience gems on the ground, try to get a magnet/vacuum item from one of the chests that are spread out on the map.

If you don’t need a map chest item such as magnet or meat, avoid picking it up, but try to stay near it or make a mental note to use it later. Magnet is great to use just before a boss, and meat is good to have available during a main boss fight.

Survivor io tips: save meat for when you need it

Save bombs (from map chests) for when you need to dispose of a tough wave or a mini boss. You can also use it against the main bosses.

One of the most important Survivor io tips is that when a main boss appears, any mini boss on screen (and everything else) will die. Make sure you can pick up the mini boss chest when this happens.

Most bosses can be dealt with by running circles around them, this is where the Sports Shoes supply comes in handy.

Only use your refresh option (during battle) if you absolutely need to. Unlike other games, you only have one chance to reroll skills in

Pet Tips

Test your pets before fully upgrading them to see which one you like best. Look at the damage they deal via the post-battle statistics. According to Google, Croaky the frog and DD-6 the robot are the best pets.

Revive your pet (if dead) just before the main boss so that it will fight with full health. Generally, you don’t want to revive your pet during a main boss fight, since it exposes you to a boss charge.

Weapon Tips

Pay attention to, and play in the special events such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. You can unlock the best weapons in the game in these events. The next image is from the Halloween event where I got Sword of Disorder.

Your starting weapon is key, check out this post for more information on some of the best weapons in the game.

One high-damage evolved weapon is usually better than several unevolved weapons. However, sometimes you want to add certain weapons early (for example Forcefield) due to their effects or just to make sure you get them in your build.

To finish a tough chapter or area, you don’t need to evolve 6 weapon skills. I think 4 good evolved weapon skills is enough.

It’s much better to get Forcefield sooner than later in the battle.

The Modular Mine weapon skill is much better paired with Lightning Emitter or Molotov than on its own. Try to pick it up only if you already have one of those two.

It is risky to get the drones and try to make Destroyer on a tough chapter. If you want to avoid a lot of hassle, one of the best Survivor io tips is to avoid the drones. However, it is very strong (and satisfying) if you can pull it off.

Check the after-battle weapon damage stats to see which ones are doing the most damage. They are shown in order in which you received them.

Supply Tips

The best supplies in my opinion are (starting with best):

Survivor io tips: the 6 best supplies
  1. Magnet (+pickup range)
  2. Energy Cube (-cooldown)
  3. HE Fuel (+attack range)
  4. Battery (+attack)
  5. Sports Shoes (+movement speed)
  6. Energy Drink (+healing)

The range supply (HE Fuel) will make the map zoom out a bit with each star level, allowing you to see what enemies are coming and where the chests are.

Equipment Tips

Read the details on a piece of equipment before investing a lot of resources to upgrade it. There might be a better one available.

I have an Eternal Suit (chest armor) that revives me when I die and it is very useful! Revive on gear is fully recommended!

I recommend saving to buy the packs of 10 chests in order to save gems. If you buy chests 1 by 1, you will spend more.

The special events may require you to open chests, you can save your keys for them.
