Scopes are items that allow players to increase their range of vision. There are five scopes in surviv.io. 1x is automatically equipped. They may be found on the ground randomly, in Crates (especially Soviet Crates), in Toilets, Bank Deposit Boxes, the Treasure Chest, Containers, and inside Buildings. 2x Scopes are extremely common, 4x Scopes are fairly common but not nearly as much as 2x Scopes, 8x Scopes are rare, and 15x Scopes are extremely rare and one of the rarest drops in the game. As you gain better scopes, the range of vision will increase and thus the background, objects, and players you see will become smaller to compensate for the increased vision.
|1x Scope||Players automatically spawn with and have equipped a 1x scope. The 1x scope cannot be dropped even when a player is killed. Players who step into roofed buildings, containers, bunkers and smoke will automatically trigger the 1x scope.|
|2x Scope||The most common scope, and is frequently found throughout the map.
It can be useful towards the beginning of the game
|4x Scope||Better zoom than the 2x scope, good enough to last throughout the game. It is uncommon.|
|8x Scope||Very large zoom, good for long range weapons like the Mosin Nagant, SV-98, etc. It is quite rare.|
|15x Scope||Maximum possible zoom; 1/16th of the map is visible. It was guaranteed to spawn in the last room of the Chrysanthemum Bunker during the "Frozen deserts" event.|
Scopes and their Uses
2x Scope and 4x Scope are extremely useful early game, and good for checking bushes. A 4x Scope is usually good enough to get you a win.
8x Scope is extremely useful in most situations, as it can be used to easily check entire buildings. However, it may be hard to see people in bushes while moving, and loot may become slightly too small to see.
The 1x Scope is the default scope and is the one that you spawn with. It is recommended to find a better scope as soon as possible, but don't risk your life for one.
- The 1x Scope will be forced when you are inside a building or are knocked out.
- The 1x Scope is the only scope not dropped on death as everyone spawns with it
- The 1x Scope also cannot be dropped manually as then you wouldn't be able to see.
- The 1x Scope can be considered the rarest scope as it NEVER drops in-game from any source.
The 2x Scope is the most common scope. It has little increase in viewing area and is the least valuable of all loot-able scopes. It gives an 8 radius desktop boost (mobile 8).
The 4x Scope is a fairly common scope. It gives a more noticeable increase compared to the 2x Scope, and a very noticable increase compared to the 1x Scope. It can be considered the middle ground of scopes as the scopes below it have a larger FOV (Field of View) in Mobile, while the scopes above it have a higher FOV on Desktop, while this one has them equal. It gives a 12 radius desktop increase (mobile 8).
The 8x scope is a rare scope, excellent for sniping, however your aim in close range may be a little reduced due to smaller players. There is a significant increase in visibility. 20 radius desktop increase (16 mobile).

The 15x Scope is the 5th and rarest Scope in surviv.io, after the 8x Scope, allowing you to see roughly 1/16 of the map, which is more than even your minimap in the corner shows. Aim in close quarters will be significantly reduced due to players being miniscual. However it is very useful for sneaking up on people, seeing people coming in, and sniping. It has the most increase out of all scopes with a 36 radius desktop increase, although the mobile only has an increase of 14, which is significantly less.
- The 15x scope was guaranteed to be found in the final room of the Chrysanthemum Bunker during the Frozen deserts update
