Two Different Modes

Battle Royale
Battle Royale

Battle Royales have two modes in STILL ALIVE. The first is the regular Battle Royale, which will also include some AI characters in the fight. The second is Team Battle Royale, in which players will form groups and compete against each other. If you're in a hurry and want to get your BR done fast, choose the regular mode!

Fight To Be The Last One Standing

In Battle Royale, you'll be fighting against both real players and AI to be the last one standing. Only one person can come out on top in this mode! Importantly, you'll be using special moves and abilities exclusive to this mode.

Your Stats And Equipment Aren't Used

Battle Royale mode will not bring over your character's usual stats, equipment, or Soul Linkers! Instead, you will have to choose what specialized Battle-Royale only weapons and skills you bring to each fight! This means you will be on a more or less even playing field with others.

Rewards Reset Regularly

Battle Royale

Rewards for this mode will be determined according to seasons, which will reset after a certain amount of time passes. If there's a particular reward you want from the Battle Pass or Battle Shop, make sure you get it before it goes away!

Rules of Battle Royale

Last Person Standing Wins

In order to win at the Battle Royale mode, you will have to be the last person standing in the match! You'll have to overcome many other players and AI to successfully win this mode.

Start At Level 1

Battle Royale

After matchmaking ends, your characters level and weapon level will be set to 1. You'll start with no other skills or items in your possession and will have to work your way up from the bottom alongside everyone else!

すっぴんちゃんTip!When you warp to the stage, the first thing you'll want to do is choose an ability. When you get caught up in the mix of things it can be easy to forget to do this, but make sure you're always learning new skills!

Fight In Several Sectors

Battle Royale

When the battle starts, you will be limited in what parts of the map you can go to. New sectors of the map will unlock over time, so make sure you get to the next area within the time limit! Failure to do so will cause you to take massive damage!

すっぴんちゃんTip!When the next sector opens up, an arrow will appear on your minimap indicating where to go. It will take you a few seconds to open the gate to the next area, so make sure to give yourself enough time to pass through safely!

Battle Royale Strategy & Tips

Choosing Your Weapon

Battle Royale

Battle Royale mode will begin with you having the option to choose from a series of weapons. The weapons will each have a different range and abilities, so make sure you thoroughly understand them all before making your decision.

Strategies & Tips By Map


Sector 1

Battle Royale

Your main goal in Sector 1 will be to kill enemies, pick up Enhancement Stones and level up your character. If you see a Supply Chest enemy (Mimic) on the map, prioritize taking it out! When the alert for the next sector comes up, make your way over there while taking out any Mimics that might be nearby.

すっぴんちゃんTip!Fighting other players at this stage of the game can be quite dangerous. Try to avoid fighting unless you're confident your level is higher than theirs.

Sector 2

Battle Royale
Battle Royale

In places on the map marked with an Eye, you'll find structures called Inith's Torch. You can take over these by standing near them and tapping the button that pops up. Your HP will gradually recover if you stand in an area that you are currently occupying, making these important strategic locations. Continue your Mimic hunting strategy for this zone as well to get more equipment and consumables.

すっぴんちゃんTip!You'll be able to learn a maximum of 4 skills, with new random skill choices coming up constantly. Pick your abilities carefully to create a kit that works well for you.

Sector 3

Battle Royale

In this area, there will be fewer Inith's Torch structures. What's more, enemies will be significantly bulkier and harder to take out. Try to focus on capturing a Light and fighting in its vicinity whenever possible!

すっぴんちゃんPoint!Try to power up as much as you can in this zone. Start heading for the next sector when you have 20 seconds or so left on the timer.

Sector 4

This final area will be an all out free battle with your remaining foes - there are no obstacles or enemies to get in your way. All that's left here is for you to use the skills and items you acquired over the run effectively to take out your enemies. Remember to use not only your special skills, but also your basic attacks as much as possible!

すっぴんちゃんTip!If you see enemy abilities that linger on the floor, make sure to move away from them! Avoiding unnecessary damage from enemy skills is particularly crucial at this stage of the match!

Flooded Metium

Differences from Calypsion
1Flooded Metium consists of 3 sectors
(Calypsion has 4)
2Players start at level 3 with weapon level 2, already having 2 skills
3Players move 30% faster
4Total match time is 5 minutes

Flooded Metium is the newest mode in Battle Royale, added during the January 14th Update. It is separated into three sectors. As the time limit draws nearer, sector gates will NOT close, but if you remain in those sectors your HP will start to go down quickly. You'll have to head to the 3rd sector to battle it out with all the other survivors to win.

すっぴんちゃんTip!Whirlpools will spawn intermittently in Flooded Metium. Stepping on such whirlpools will reduce your character's movement speed temporarily, so be careful!

First Sector

Separated into 5 areas, each area will have 6 players spawn inside it.
Requirements To Advance To Sector 2 (Only One Needed)
The sector 1 timer runs out (70 seconds)
Half of the players in the area have died.
※ This only applies to the 5 separate sectors, not the whole map

The fastest way to get through the first phase is to defeat half of the players in your current area! First you'll want to get skills and defeat monsters, collecting weapon enhancement stones and items. Look for players with low HP and take them out.

Second Sector

Players are funneled into another area where Supply Chests will also spawn.

Enemies in this sector will be more powerful, but will also provide more EXP. This is the only sector where Supply Chests will spawn, so while it is a good idea to go after them, you'll have to really be careful about other players doing the same. If you spot a big level discrepancy between you and other players, keep away from them and focus on monsters first.

すっぴんちゃんTip!This is a good place to level up, given that the amount of EXP you can earn is so high. Power up your character as much as you can before engaging with enemies. Note that if many players are still alive at this point, the entrance to the next sector may be really crowded, so be careful.

Third Sector

The remaining players assemble together in one area and duke it out.

There are no monsters or other terrain obstacles here - all that's left is to fight it out to the very end. You'll need to use your skills and items wisely in this last leg if you want to come out on top. Remember not to just spam abilities, position yourself carefully and use basic attacks!

すっぴんちゃんTip!If you spot an enemy stationary placement skill, make sure to move away from it! Remember that it's okay to retreat and move away!
