Hawaii Map

Hawaii is Unturned’s first Curated map and now available in-game!
It’s been built from the ground up by the following community workshop creators:

Justin “Gamez2much” Morton
Terran “Spyjack” Orion
Alex “Rainz2much” Stoyanov
Amanda “Mooki2much” Hubler

If you are enjoying the map and would like to support them consider checking out the new Hawaii Mystery Box!

Screenshot Contest

Edit: There’s been an overwhelming number of submissions, so many so that the e-mail server has been up and down! I’ve started accepting winners, but it’s too many for me to individually parse through. The contest will continue through the next update with more info on a better submission process then.

Are you a survivor with an eye for photography? You’re in luck - this week we’re running a contest to update Unturned’s loading screens! If your screenshot is selected it will be used in the background art and you’ll win a special in-game item!

Unturned 3.17.16.0 Update Notes

Vehicle Changes

All vehicles now spawn with a battery. The battery charges while the engine is running, and drains down if the headlights/siren are left on with the engine off. If the battery runs out while driving the horn, headlights, taillights and sirens will stop working. If the battery is dead when entering the vehicle the ignition will not function. You can remove the battery in the vehicle context menu, and add one by using a replacement found at mechanics/gas stations.

Caltrops and weaponry now damage most wheeled vehicles’ tires. Handling is significantly impacted by lack of wheels, but...

Workshop Crate #1

The first community-created mystery box is now dropping as the January 2017 Workshop Crate #1! All of the contents were voted on in the curated workshop, and are the first time you can get mythical variants of workshop items!

To open a workshop crate you will need the associated workshop key available from the stockpile. This is because the sales of the special key are split with the creators of the items in the crate. Future non-workshop mystery boxes will continue to use the normal mystery box key, however.

Steam Awards 2016

Unturned has been nominated for the “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award” award alongside Starbound, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Stardew Valley and Paladins!

Edit: Voting for this award has now closed. Congratulations to the developers of Euro Truck Simulator 2 for winning the award!

Huge thanks to everyone who voted for Unturned in the nominations and this final round, I never imagined Unturned would be in the running for an award so this is absolutely mind blowing! Regardless of whether or not we win the award, I’m...

Unturned 3.17.10.0 Update Notes

Edit regarding unable to open Steam overlay

The improved BattlEye security this update has made it harder for cheaters to break into the game, but it’s also had the unexpected side effect of blocking the Steam overlay due to the order in which Unity starts up the game. Unfortunately this means it can’t be fixed from within Unturned itself in a patch, but we’ve come up with a few ideas and hope to have it working properly again for the next update.

Edit: This has been fixed in the 3.17.10.1 patch.

Unturned 3.17.9.0 Update Notes

Edit for 3.17.9.1

There was a very confusing bug in multiplayer after the update came out where your character would bounce up/down while playing on a server, so I reverted the update while hunting it down. Unfortunately I didn’t run into it while testing because of an option I had enabled on my server. It turned out that due to the bayonet fix the input packet was getting corrupted such that the server thought you were holding the jump key, so your player was rubberbanding to match the server’s bunnyhops! :)

Russia Map

The map you’ve all been waiting for is finally here - Russia is now available to play!

Russia is Unturned’s new largest map clocking in at 4x the size of PEI/Washington/Yukon giving you tons of room for bases and exploration, and through its tiered loot progression provides an interesting blend between survival and combat. Many of the new gameplay features from the past couple months have been designed with this map in mind as well, for example the best items are hidden away in the new radioactive deadzones giving reason to loot the...

New Secret Russian Guns hidden in Unturned 3.15.9.0

At least 5 new guns have silently been added to Unturned in last fridays update. Nelson has been actively working on a large size Russian map as confirmed in his AMA on Reddit.

Screenshot of a tank on the new Russian map.

Of course a new map means new items and weapons, but we did not expect any of this to end up hidden in our game this soon before the new Russian map release. Which reportedly is in a month or two.

Other than the screenshot above of one of the new tanks introduced in...

Unturned 3.15.9.0 Update Notes

New Zombies

The zombies have got some new abilities! Keep an eye out for the Flanker zombies which can stealthily attack you from behind, and the Burner zombies which explode in a burst of flames spreading to other zombies. The Mega zombie has also realized he’s strong enough to tear concrete right out of the ground for use as a projectile - so you’re no longer safe just out of reach! Mind you this is only the beginning…

Additions:

  • Added purple “Flanker” zombie.

  • Added orange “Burner” zombie.

Unturned 3.15.6.0 Update Notes

Tanks

Yes - you can finally drive the tanks found around PEI and Washington! On PEI you can find a tank at Confederation Bridge, or at the destroyed tunnels on Washington. If you manage to loot some tank shells you can use the tank’s turret, but keep an eye out, as you’re very exposed in the gunner’s seat! Tank missiles are similar to rockets, but travel faster and drop less. The new turret system is also very generic for modders, so features like rear-facing guns on a biplane or missiles on an attack helicopter are...

Unturned 3.15.4.0 Update Notes

Ballistics

Scope sway, bullet drop and bullet travel time have been added! You can steady your scope by holding your sprint key. Dedicated snipers now have slightly longer range with a faster muzzle velocity than all other weapons, and their stats have been adjusted to prevent quickscoping while allowing you to track the bullet through the air to adjust for drop.

Suppressors slightly decrease muzzle velocity causing a bit more bullet drop, but even more so with internally suppressed weapons. By default all guns will use the default ballistic values with Ballistic_Travel set to 10.0,...

Unturned 3.15.3.0 Update Notes

Sentry

You can now defend your base while offline! The sentry turret will keep a watchful eye out as long as it receives power and ammunition, and if it spots a hostile player or zombie it will begin peppering them with gunfire. It will not shoot people in your group or handcuffed survivors, and will suspiciously track enemies with their hands up.

Similarly to the weapon rack you can mount a firearm in the turret’s clamp to arm it. This means the turret is more effective with better weaponry, and makes the light machine guns...
