Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

A comprehensive guide to surviving in Super Animal World!

Prepare for Landing



Alright! You've gotten used to the controls, you've got your animal and you've hopped on the eagle, eager to start getting to work. As a sand hating man once said "This is where the fun begins".

Your landing can make or break you. Because landing at the wrong spot can lead to death in less than 10 seconds. Since you're here reading a guide on how to play better, it's safe for me to assume that you don't fare too well in a fire fight. If you're not confident enough to stand on your own in an encounter, your best bet would be to land as far away from enemies possible and loot in peace.

Aim for this kind of scenario:

Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

Away from the carnage, and looting at your own leisure.

Avoid this:

If I jumped now, I'd have to contend with everyone in a mad dash for weapons. Very risky, only crazy people would drop here.

Tips:

  • Try to land directly on a weapon. In the off chance someone had the same idea as you, being directly on a weapon is less time unarmed than landing nearby and running to it.
  • Open your map and try to see where the Eagle will fly over. Weapons spawn in every named location. Plan accordingly.
  • If you fail to get any weapons, it's a good time to start running. Closing in for melee is a good way to turn into swiss cheese.

Weapon of Choice



So you managed to survive your controled descent and got yourself a decent gun. But alas, you don't know how it works! Don't worry, animals don't get guns everyday after all. But if you want to reach the top, you need to know how to use whatever tools you have at your disposal.

General Info



Guns can be found all over the map in numerous spawn locations or dropped from slain enemies. Each gun can be found with different tiers, Gray for Common, Green for Uncommmon, and Blue for Rare. The higher the tier, the better the performance.

There is also the Delivery Mole that drops crates containing Gold tier weapons. These weapons are the best the game can offer and in the right hands, can be a top threat.

Finally, every weapon uses a certain type of ammo. Several guns use the same type of ammo and thus use the same ammo pool. Reloading takes ammo from your total ammo stock and into your gun. In other words, if you have 90 ammo on you and you reload an empty rifle, you'll have 30 in the gun and 60 in your reserves. If you pick up another rifle that has been fired (let's say it has 24 ammo) then what you'll have is 24 in the gun and 60 in your reserves. Did you get all that?

Now, Let's get to the guns themselves now shall we?

Weapons are arranged according to ammo type.

Small Bullets



Pistol



  • Low Damage
  • Average Firerate (Semi-Auto)
  • Average Accuracy
  • Short to medium range
  • Not a very good weapon. This is probably going to be a weapon you'd get when everything else is already taken. Takes a bit of skill to take down anyone with a better gun.

Magnum



  • Medium Damage
  • Slow Firerate
  • Good Accuracy
  • Medium to Long Range
  • A good weapon for picking off animals from a good distance. Think of it as a pocket sniper.

SMG



  • Low Damage
  • Fast Firerate
  • Average Accuracy
  • Short to Medium Range
  • A good backup weapon to have. The firerate on this gun can decimate close quarters and has some range to it. 

Silenced Pistol



  • Low Damage
  • Fast Firerate (Semi-Auto)
  • Good Accuracy
  • Short to Medium Range
  • Gold Weapon, only drops from crates
  • Suppressed, has a smaller noise radius
  • If you're fast enough, you can take someone out without alerting your position to others. Though using this requires a bit of accuracy on your part.

Minigun



  • Medium Damage
  • Fast Firerate
  • Who needs accuracy with this many bullets?
  • Short to Medium Range
  • Gold Weapon, only drops from crates
  • Slows you down when firing, making you vulnerable to flanking and grenades
  • The feared and coveted Minigun. Good for holding down a position and asserting dominance.

Big Bullets



AK



  • Medium Damage
  • Fast Firerate
  • Good Accuracy
  • Short to Long Range
  • The all reliable AK. The best gun to have on the go due to its versatility. Other guns can outperform it in close range though so be careful.

M16



  • Medium Damage
  • Fast Firerate
  • Good Accuracy
  • Short to Long Range
  • Gold Weapon, only drops from crates
  • Think of this as a better, deadlier version of the AK. It can also be a deadly partner for the Minigun. 

Others



Shotgun



  • High Damage
  • Average Firerate
  • Low Accuracy
  • Short Range
  • An absolute beast in close quarters. A point blank shot can instantly take out an animal in an instant if not leave them very badly wounded. Corners are a shotgun's best friend while open fields are the enemy.

Sniper



  • High Damage
  • Average Firerate
  • High Accuracy
  • Medium to Long Range
  • A bit tricky to use, but a well placed shot can cripple or even eliminate your target. Good for long range ambushes and retaliating against stationary targets (Minigun cough cough).

Throwables



Grenade



  • A good strategy is to throw it in the general direction of enemies. It's a grenade, need I say more? 

Banana



  • Bananas are a good tool to use for area denial. Stepping on one will cause the idiot victim to slip and become immobile for a few seconds. This makes them very vulnerable to attacks. Try not to slip on them, especially if you're the one who put them in the first place. 

Tips

  • Manage your ammo carefully. Running out of bullets in a fight is a death sentence.
  • Sometimes it's better to pick up a new weapon than to reload your gun to save ammo.
  • Smash open crates or cut grass to find some extra ammo boxes.
  • Try to know at least the basics of how each gun works so you'll know what to do if you get your hands on one or to react when your enemy has.

Engagement 101



You've gotten this far... In the heat of battle, every move you make counts. A single step can be the difference between life and a very dissapointing death.

Aiming



In this game, bullets need to travel from point A to point B. Because of this, you need to lead your shots. What does this mean?

Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

Aim where your target will be, instead of where they currently are.

Predict where your target will be, and then start raining lead. It's going to make it hard for them to dodge and sometimes they'll even run into it themselves by accident!

Movement



But what if the enemy shoots you? And I just told them how to aim! Not to worry! If you paid attention to the controls, you can press space to jump roll!

Jump rolling is a versatile skill for maneuvering offensively or to dodge bullets defensively. If you time your jumps consecutively, you'll get a speed boost indicated by sparkles appearing.



Like so.

With this, you can make a clean getaway when things don't go your way or move quickly for a flank. Be careful though, when rolling you are not bulletproof. Rolling into bullets can get you killed without being able to shoot back. Try to think fast and assess the situation.

Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

Oh yeah, and know when to cut your losses and RUN.

Tips:

  • You don't need to kill everyone you see. It's not a contest to get the most kills. You only need to be the last animal standing.
  • Find your playstyle. Playing aggresively can net you with a surplus of supplies if you manage it. Playing passively will lessen your risk of biting the dust by avoiding threats. Maybe do a mix of both. Do the strategy that suits both you and the situation at paw.

Somebody Call a Vet!



Oh no! A group of animals showed up and wounded you! Now you're yelling at Teffff for a refund because his guide almost got you killed! First off, shush, secondly this is where healing items come in.

There are multiple ways to replenish your health in Super Animal Royale

Health Juice





The main way to restore health is pressing Q to drink your health juice. Doing so will slowly fill up your health bar while your supply of health juice goes down. While you're doing this, you are unable to shoot and moving will cancel the action. Only do this while in general safety in cover!

Coconuts



Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

Scattered around the map are coconut trees. Eating a coconut by pressing E on it will restore a small amount of health. The action is quick and only takes an instant. The only downside is how specific the spawn location for coconuts are on the map.

Campfire





Campfires are located around the map for use. Simply approach one while wounded and the fire will magically start up. While within the campfire's radius, you will constantly regenerate health regardless of what you're doing (unless what you're doing is getting shot that is). Keep in mind that campfires will heal everyone, friend and foe alike. Also others can see a lit campfire even when it's in shadows so watch out.

Tips:

  • Try to use coconuts and campfires if they're available. You get to save your health juice and deny healing for your enemies.
  • Don't be afraid of having too much health juice. It's better to have some on hand rather than not have it.
  • You can cut grass to find some health juice. It can be a lifesaver.

Gas



You may have noticed amidst the chaos that a strange green fog of toxic death is closing around you. Not to worry, aside from being 100% lethal upon overexposure to the stuff, the gas is going to be the least of your concern. However, in the event that you find yourself at the edge of the safe zone, you need to be mindful of where you stand.

Super Animal Royale - Survival Guide

The gas closes in every few seconds, indicated by a timer on the top part of your screen. As the game progresses, the safe area becomes smaller and smaller. Eventually the safe area will shrink to the point where it doesn't exist anymore. This means, the gas will engulf the whole map and the last one alive wins. Stepping inside the gas will slowly drain your health. Drinking health juice can slow down your health drain however not for long making this tactic a bit of a last resort.

So how are you supposed to deal with this?

Well, it's simple... Don't step in it.

A warning sound plays whenever the gas moves. If you're outside the safe zone marked by the map, you need to keep mind of where the gas is currently. If you are inside, you can ignore it until the next time it moves. If you are far, you might want to start moving.

Tips:

  • You don't need to avoid it like the plague. It doesn't instantly kill you. If you see a good weapon outside the safe zone, you can risk the gas to get it. Just be sure to have enough health juice or better yet, have some coconuts or a campfire nearby.
  • Avoid getting trapped indoors. The exit may require going around which means you may lose too much health trying to get out.
  • Check the map every so often to make sure you are safe from the gas.
  • Bananas can be deadly when used near or inside the gas area.

Teams!



You don't have to explore Super Animal World on your own! You can team up with friends in Duos and Squads mode. Or if you're feeling adventurous you can have random people on your team. In any case you need to work together as a pack.

A team that sticks together can survive better. You can coordinate with your teammates by pressing tab to switch to team chat. You can also click on the map to drop a map marker.



You can use it to signal where to drop, or where to meet up if you get separated.

Aside from being able to cover you, your teammates can also revive you when you get downed. Simply approach a downed teammate and press E to help them up. Be careful though, while helping your friend up you are defenseless and you might join your friend on the ground if you're not careful.

And if you get downed yourself, try not to lead your enemies to your team by directly crawling towards them. Find some cover and hope they can deal with it.

Now, you might say... "Why do we have to stick together? I'm a lone wolf, I can handle myself!" Well if you don't want to stick together, other teams might. And if a lone wolf meets a whole squad...
