SCUM: Generators Now Last Longer in Latest Update

Hotfix 0.8.502.68266 Gamepires

Developer Gamepires released a new patch for SCUM, which you can now download from Steam. Hotfix 0.8.502.68266 applies a plethora of quality-of-life changes, especially for content introduced in a previous update.

Generators were added to the open-world survival game SCUM to power up certain appliances, including refrigerators, prefab ovens, and electric stoves. While they are useful, generators will continually use fuel when turned on even if they're not currently attached to anything.

That said, the company made a substantial change where generators now consume far less fuel than before. This is very useful in case you forget to turn the generator off.

Another QoL feature worth mentioning is that a single Antibiotic Pill has been added to the trader shop. Normally, antibiotic pills are only found as a world loot. Being able to buy it from the trader allows you to do something about an infection or contamination immediately.

You can read the other quality-of-life changes below:

  • Nerfed both hand and foot abrasions gain rate
