Hello everyone happy year of the Tiger! To celebrate we have another regular update for you! Some new things, tons of bugfixes and an announcement. Check it out!

Alright lets start with the announcement:

This will be our last regular update before 0.7 (potential hotfix not included) as we are all hands on deck for it from now on. So keep an eye out on news and announcements and we will see you all on 0.7!

First off let's start with celebrating the Lunar New Year! As a part of the ongoing Steam sale you can get SCUM for 40% off right now! So what are you waiting for? Get it for yourself if you haven't already, get it for your friends, hell get it for your next door neighbor. Just in time before 0.7 hits in soon future.

But that is not all. To help you celebrate the New Year we added a new item inspired by a tradition we heard about from our Chinese community.

The Double bang firecracker can now be found on the island.

Find this thingy on the island before the Lunar year ends so you can light it and keep the evil spirits away, and have good luck for the rest of the year.

Alright up next we have a quite an important one. This one has been teased a little bit and is a prequel to the story and a faction you will encounter in the future. The PT-29 rapid recovery serum or codenamed "Phoenix Tears" can now be found on the island. This extremely rare item is more valuable than gold. Rather than explaining what it does to you I am just going to past the text from the design document.

Kids and women were mostly testing subjects and they were seldom exposed to different experiments which included drugs cocktails, synthetic hormones and radiation in order to provoke their immune system. The purpose was to create the serum capable of restoring the body from almost any type of disease or physical damage. The company soon got results and Phoenix Tears were created, an experimental secret military grade injectable. Provides rapid and near instantaneous stabilization and recovery of ANY and ALL injuries at once, perhaps even death. Rare as a snowflake touching down in hell.

Well they are rare as a snowflake touching down in hell but how do you find them? Well in certain bunkers around the island you will find new containers mounted on the walls.

These are secure locked boxes for which you will need to be highly skilled in order to open them, and then you have chance to either get a random medical item or the highly valued PT-29.

We got your feedback about bicycles and heavily reworked how they are utilized. First off you will see that all of the animations have been reworked so you will now have a more natural feeling when riding a bike.

You can tell now that depending on the speed of your pedaling your character will adjust the position on the bike to maximize the speed. We have also adjusted the max speed of the bicycle making it a much more useful vehicle for moving around the island. Not only that but we adjusted the physics on bikes to be much more realistic, one of the products is that you no longer need to pedal to go forward when going downhill.

This and many tweaks are awaiting your Dave Mirra experience.

And since you asked we have added new variations of items because we can, and you guys like loot.


We have added new variations of the compound bow, now in multiple camouflage patterns.


And what is a proper bow without a matching quiver.
