In private Survival matches, if one player pauses, the game immediately stops until both players are unpaused.
There are several different types of Survival that can be chosen from in the Server settings.
In Tower-Assisted mode, the player is assisted by a number of AI-controlled towers and turrets. These can get destroyed by enemies, but can also be repaired. People repairing structures cannot attack.
In Solo mode, players are all on their own. There may only be one player at any time, and no assistance is given in any way, not even through air strikes. The player must rely on their own weapon to survive; they may, however, pick up weapons from enemies.
Players face a variety of enemies, which change depending on the Enemy Set they choose:
Attack Dog - A dog which attempts to kill players.
Suicide Dog - A dog equipped with C4, which blows up when close to a player or when the C4 is shot.
Technical - A light truck armed with a machine gun.
Medium Helicopter - A medium transport helicopter which attacks using two side-mounted miniguns which fire independently of each other. Medium Helicopters can also deploy troops and flares, and take evasive manouvres.
Heavy Helicopter - A heavy transport helicopter which attacks using a mounted weapon which changes per individual helicopter: this can include a grenade launcher, machine gun, minigun, or rocket launcher. Heavy Helicopters can also deploy troops, armoured vehicles and flares, and take evasive manouvres.
Light Bomber - A Light Bomber equipped with small bombs, and a turret for self-defence. Light Bombers can also deploy flares and take evasive manouvres.
Heavy Bomber - A Heavy Bomber equipped with large bombs, several turrets and cruise missiles. Heavy Bombers can also deploy flares.
Light UGV - A small tracked drone which travels on land, and is armed with a single machine gun.
Medium UGV - A medium-sized wheeled drone, armed with a larger machine gun.
