There is a new mode of transportation in SCUM, thanks to the newly released Wings of Fury update. Several improvements and bug fixes are implemented as well.

New Features

The headlining feature of the Wings of Fury update is the airplane. This is a new two-seater vehicle type that allows you to scout, chase, and maneuver your way around the island.

There are currently two airplanes available: the Red Kinglet Scout and the Blue Kinglet Duster. The former is slightly faster and more agile, while the latter consumes less fuel. These planes can spawn in two military points of interest: the Zeljava airfield in the D4 sector and the main airfield at the B2 airport. Take note that these old planes are not maintained, meaning that you need to have a fuel canister and an airplane repair kit handy to make them operational.

Of course, you can’t have planes without parachutes. Parachutes not only provide a means for you to jump from really high places, but they also change the way you spawn on the battlefield. From this point onward, your first, random, or sector spawn will set you high up in the air with a parachute on your back. This is quite similar to how most battle royale matches begin .

Another feature worth mentioning is Outposts. These are places filled with NPC traders, such as the mechanic, the armorer, and the general goods merchant. There are four different outposts scattered all over the map. The first outpost can be found on C2 (RPI church island) in the middle of the lake. The other three are spread around the southern part of the map, in the B4, Z3, and A0 sectors. The developers may add more NPC traders in the future.
