The newly released open world survival game SCUM has had its developer release a new patch for the title, the update adds anticheat code, fixes memory leak issues and much more.

Gamespires, the developers behind SCUM have debuted a brand new patch to SCUM. Within this patch, server admin controls have been added, sentries have been slightly nerfed, disabled chat and mic icon while in single-player and anti-cheat code has been implemented. It should be noted that any exploits will be counted as cheating and result in a bannable offense if detected.

  • Anticheat is up an running. We will continue to upgrade it, and keep SCUM as cheat free as possible!
  • P.S - Also using exploits will be considered cheating and can result in a ban.
  • Server admin controls are also added.
  • Sentries got nerfed a bit. (Longer reload times, bigger shooting cone, bigger chance to miss)
