SCUM Makes Weapon Decay More Apparent and Introduces New NPC in Patch

Patch Steam

Weapon decay is now more pronounced in the multiplayer online survival game SCUM. That’s because the newly released Patch gives abandoned weapons a gritty look, letting you know about their current condition the moment you see them.

Aside from that, developers added a new trader NPC that you can interact with: the Fisherman. This old geezer will sell you nautical supplies, including boats, rafts, and anything you need for fishing.
